Gambling: Setting the Bar High
It always seems likely that gambling is so easy to do. It can be, unless you aren't really prepared for the consequences. But what really motivates one to gamble?
Several factors have been tried, witnessed, and studied, and the results vary. Money is the prime source of this motivation, for the stakes are so amazingly high, no one would've thought somebody would be THAT willing to invest a thousand bucks. Millions, even.
Back in the day, gambling was invented by man as a form of entertainment, until this kind of entertainment went really good so it evolved, and money was made part of it.
A poor man's stock market, live bank - whatever one calls it, the fact still remains that gambling has created a great effect on man that it lingered th rough the years.
Ranging from card games to lotteries, the intent varies as well. Betting alone does not make it all worthwhile, for you have to engage in such challenge that requires deep thinking. Yes, deep.
People gamble for a reason, and whatever the reason may fuel their minds to go after the unseen. This is also true with game shows as seen on TV.
Since money is what motivates most people to take a risk on gambling, the economic standing of the gambler's place is considered as well. Poverty and not having a steady job are one of the valid reasons why they do it.
On the other hand, some people would not even consider resorting to this, for the simple reason that they didn't have to. Driven by strong ties with culture and religion, these folks had 'better things to do than sit in someone's backyard and play Poker all day.'
Even though gambling is not considered a sport, the act applies on such situations where easy money is duly needed. Numbers games, Football games, horse racing, and so forth - are few options of the gambler's what-else-to-do in his itinerary.
True, money is fast to accumulate, as fast as once you bet on it. Should the results turn sour, well. You were bold enough to engage in playing yet were you prepared enough? Have you overestimated yourself before joining the tables?
These questions are often asked by the gambler, as soon as the game is over and realized the mistake he made. So, the next time you throw that hundred bucks away - be sure to test the waters with your mind, first.
