When asked if money was a motivation he states yes and no. That money is a driving factor at some point. At the beginning of his career, money was more a motivating factor than at the point he is at right now. It’s interesting since he makes the most money now with high stakes tournaments than at the beginning of his career. The money seems like how it for many who’ve reached a goal. Once there it’s not as great a thrill as in the beginning. He has many more options now and does things outside of poker as well.
On his success, he says it’s really a mindset. To improve one’s game everyday is what counts and it takes focus to improve the game that makes individuals succeed. He also says there are only a handful of players out there who are focused like this and those who do are today’s top poker players. The other side of the success, having so much money at a young age is something he has to deal with consistently as well. He seems pretty level headed about it though. In addition to poker, he’s also the CEO of Primed Mind, a success program.
Primed Mind is an App. Users listen to a mindset coach named Elliot. The goal is to allow visualization, and relaxation techniques to set goals. The ultimate agenda is create self confidence, better health, personal growth and recovery skills. He along with Nathan Schmitt and Duane Ludwig are the three key people at Primed Mind along with Elliot Roe, the mindset coach.
Not only is he still winning at poker but also balancing himself out through other ventures. He “retired” from poker only to come out of his retirement and continue playing and winning all over again. And he’s unstoppable.
