Anti fragile means that you not only don’t break, but actually grow stronger with every mistake.
In poker, you must become anti fragile.
ANTI FRAGILE EXPLAINED
“Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty. Yet, in spite of the ubiquity of the phenomenon, there is no word for the exact opposite of fragile. Let us call it antifragile. Antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better”.
– Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“Anti-fragility goes beyond robustness; it means that something does not merely withstand a shock but actually improves because of it.”
BECOMING ANTI FRAGILE
Be persistent, never give up, and learn from all of your mistakes.
Remember: There is value in everything. Even mistakes. Experiencing mistakes first-hand is the best way to learn.
Mistakes are essential for growth.
When water in a river hits a rock, it goes right around it and actually gets faster creating rapids.
Remember this analogy when you make mistakes. Making mistakes is what it’s all about, so long as you are learning from them.
