In poker, specifically Texas Hold Em, the best starting hand you can be dealt is Two Aces aka "Pocket Aces."  Conversely, the worst starting hand you can be dealt is a "two" and a "seven" of different suits aka "2/7 off suit." 

The great thing about poker is even though we may be dealt the worst starting hand, we can choose to play it like the best hand.  The players will not know any different.

In life, we may not always be dealt the best starting hand, but WE ALL have the choice to choose to play the hand we are dealt like Aces.  We can choose to play our starting hand like the best hand possible and the world will not know any different.

The point is this: we have a tremendous amount of power available to us.  We can choose to look at a situation as "2/7 off suit" or we can choose to look at a situation as "aces," or we can choose to look at it as anything in between.   

Learning how to see the "aces" in life is one of the most powerful skills you will ever learn.

Watch this short video I recorded below to learn more about how Poker is a metaphor for life.

Carpe Diem,
