You must be honest to yourself. Acknowledge every little mistake and learn from it.
There is only one person responsible for your game. And this person is you, so be honest to yourself and you will see that this is the first step to being a better human (and player). Don’t put the blame on somebody else (or your cue, the table or your opponent). It’s just down to you.



The next step is to take care of your body. A good workout and healthy food are the first steps to doing this. Reward yourself sometimes – and make something special of it. You will see when your body is fit you will enjoy your life (and a lot of other things) more.


Don’t be scared of making mistakes. Don’t let your fears control you. It will not prevent you from making mistakes. It just makes you think more about mistakes….which is bad for you. Be positive and trust yourself!



Learn from every situation. Because you can learn from good and from bad people(players) and also from good and bad days.


Try to understand the people and the game. Maybe you have to change your perspective sometimes, but this will expand your horizons.


Love yourself!


All these things are parts of my philosophy. They improve my life and my game.
I’m sure I can’t live up to all these ideals all the time, but I try.
