Someday: Disease That Will Take Your Dreams to the Grave


All the time I get people telling me about how they are putting something off, or don’t have time for it. That they will do it ‘someday’.

The reality is – When is ever a good time? If you try hard enough, there’s always an excuse and, often you don’t even have to try hard.

It’s crazy how people look at things and their importance, it’s probably the main thing it has highlighted for me so far.

If you’re in a 9 – 5 job that you don’t particularly enjoy, if you have other things you want to pursue, that may be more beneficial to you and or your family, why do you let it take priority over them?

Because it’s what society tells us? because it’s the ‘done thing’?

If I have any regrets so far, it’s not doing this full-time sooner! Easier said than done at times it may seem I know, but if it’s what you want seriously I’d urge you to do it, the pay-off is really worth it.

I’m currently reading a book, I’ll hold off until I’ve finished it and write a fuller post, but it highlight’s the importance of outsourcing income and continually developing.

What are you holding off? Is it time to take your trading to the next level? Check out the Video Pack Course.


So York is on Channel 4 this week which is always a bit of an uplift as the quality of races is better, for day 1 it seemed pretty good with some massive turnover mid-afternoon as expected. The cards in between didn’t seem to bad either.

As usual I decided to work myself into it a little, it’s what I always advise with the big events as people often jump in the depend and get burnt with conditions slightly different to usual, also the better quality is later in the week more often than not with such events so it just doesn’t make sense to get over-excited early on!


Good luck if you’re carrying on today!

  1. Is it just me thinking I am seeing something that isn’t really there, but do you tend to make more profit on a race the longer time gap since the last one. 10mins or more, bigger profit then 5mins between races.

  2. Hi anon, currently not at the moment. It’s just the guide on the link above.

    Dean, it looks that way in this screenshot a little although I only ever trade for around the same period so would say its coincidence!

  3. Hi Anon,

    No real reason to knock the trainning on head with Jack other than we seemed to have different levels of motivation and while the summer racing was on a monday evening would have been better spent trading finantially.

  5. Hi Ray, sorry to hear you haven’t quite made where you want to be just yet. At the moment the only help i offer is the Trading guide on the link above, It can feel like that at times but i really would advise you dont give up yet. As thoman edison said ….. many of lifes failures are people who gave up when they didnt realise how close to success they were!!!


  6. Very true Caan…..I think its just hard at times but trying to work with a £300 bank is so difficult and just when i thought I have cracked it I will go lose another few quid

    I may take you up on your guide let me just try and make a couple of quid first

    Something has just got to give….I just feel Im nearly there I just need ironing out so to speak lol

    Cheers Dude


  7. Hey Rayza, I have struggled with finding a strategy that works in UK racing, however, if you watch long enough, maybe take screenshots of graphs, you will find that patterns emerge. Don’t give up, I almost did until I gave it another go, and trust me, there is no greater feeling conquering the beast that is Betfair.
