Stumble in my footsteps

Good morning , my special ones. I call you special, because you are. Every one is, but you, especially you , who is reading and visiting this blog, you are the best. The best,because we give each other power and belief to go further and to achieve more.  Sometimes you achieve and learn  , when you are down or if you are in a loosing streak.

I would like to introduce you to one of my passions. Maybe it is not correct to call it this way, but his is how I exactly feel it. Passions and inner senses are the ones the drive and direct us to exact place, peoples and circumstances that change our lives forever. Passion and the power that it has in itself is something enormous, something that even my imagination finds hard to describe, but I promise I will try. When the posts is started it can’t be stopped, it is like a big river , which is gaining speed, till it reaches the ocean.

And we come to the point. What is my passion? The answer could be found easily when you look around, see the banners, see the heading, feel the vibes . My passion is betting. Betting on everything , in each different aspect of this word, of this universe. Betting provokes me , it is asking me questions and giving me quiz and mathematical problems. Takes my mind to another, different direction. It is the dimension, in which geniuses find their answers, some people go mad , people like me get excited .

My first steps in betting was with games of dices and cards. Do you know that every time you like and wish to place a bet or bet on something, your head and brain becomes like the most powerful computer, which produces decisions and answers ? It is a fever, that makes your body tremble and all the blood goes straight to your head. It is an explosion of total emotions and volcano of colors. Maybe this could sound weird to you, but betting gives color to our lives.

When I was in 7th grade in high school, I started playing slots. It was something new as an experience and type of betting. My favorite games was Jollie Poker, when  you have a winning you can double it, jokers and 7’s make it 4 times your winning.I won and I lost a lot, but learnt more then expected. When you have cards and poker details in a machine, it is a great food for the mind and imagination.

But there was a big surprise and present to come for my imagination. I call it the “magical ring “. Others call it, the unsolved problem. You know it as roulette. I know it as the biggest challenge of my life, as the heaviest weight to be lift. It was and it is my Everest, that I try to climb, to reach and to conquer. Is it all about losing or winning ? I do not think so , it is about improvement and moving to another level.

There was a time, when all the circumstances were not in pink. I was in a betting crisis. If I was not in work, I was always in the roulette hall, playing casino and slots. Sometimes for countless hours. I had lost piles of money. I was desperate, losing friends and losing solid soil underneath my feet. The whole world collapsed around me. I was not alone,I  was lost…..

One evening I received a phone call. It was a stranger , who wanted to see me. He got my number , form one of my last two left friends. We spoke several minutes and decided to meet in the center of my city. He said, he has prepared a big challenge to me. I am a man of risk, and would love to have this one. Risk and courage most of the times pay together, just you have to listen what they are about to whisper in your ear.

The day came and we went to a cozy bar. We spoke for a while with this gentleman and he said , that he has a cure for me. I tried almost everything, nothing helped me till this meeting. I had one card left and was all in on this joker.

Mine and his task, because he was about to be with me all the time of while we were performing it. The task was to stay both of us in a live casino room full of slots and tables for roulette , black -jack , dices and baccarat for 24 hours. We were about just to sit, drink,observe and no talking at all.

Believe me this was one of my best experience and lessons in life. All my senses were on 6, I was watching, feeling , observing and thinking what was happening, why it had happened. I saw myself in most of the situations. I saw no clocks in the casino room. I was looking to the expression on the face of my new friend. I was learning from everything and everyone who was there. Seconds,minutes, hours were passing – I felt in a deep meditations and cleared up my mind and soul. I had decided, yes I will play in future but in a sophisticated way and to learn to play with my mind , not with my heart. To make small steps, because they are the right advise to big success. It was a matter of changing the roles, not my passion to rule me, but me to be her master. The time passed and he disappeared in the crowd.  I was smiling , this was his way , but he gave me a lot and bring me back to life. Thank you Mr. Green. You are one of the most smart , gentle and provoking people I ever known. Would you like to know him too???
