It’s like a virus. It spreads through your senses. You start to think clearer. You walk different, wear a calm face, an intense focus with a wry smile. Winning infects. Those around you notice and they become better. It is an addiction. A shot in the heart. You feel “up”. You’re ready to go. It has amazing highs, better than anything you can buy, and there is only one thing that gets you back to that high – more. Losing is no longer part of life, part of the game, it is no longer something that just “happens”. It can’t happen. It won’t happen. You want that high, you need that high. There is no compromise to be reached. Losing is the enemy.
