Top Ten Betting Mistakes - 8) The Grass is Greener
8) The Grass is Greener
The grass is rarely Greener on the Other Side. The truth is that the grass that isn't working for you has not been grown, cultivated or looked after properly. Many punters change approaches and methods so quickly that they don't give any method a true test . If they find a system that works they don't continue after a few bad results . It is the same as gamblers who write down every bet they have . Once they have a few losers they often lose the heart to do this and stop doing so and move on to another area . They are like children with new toys at Christmas . They never stay with any method long enough to prosper . They always feel the" Grass is Greener" , when in truth the "Grass" they are using has been abused and left to deteriorate. They want the next Big "new idea " or "method " and that doesn't work either as the fault lies not in the Grass, but the Gardener .
They have no long term consistency in their betting and are constantly tinkering with what wasn't broke or moving on in search of the holy grail before a full evaluation of what they are currently examining has been completed. A competition to win best garden will be won by the person who can spend most time in the garden and master its challenges, the gardener who is prepared to care about his garden and invest in the tools that will help his garden grow and keep the weeds at bay. It's the same with betting. You will do far better long term if you can make a concentrated effort of learning and research in one key area rather than flitting from this to that.
