Ever wonder what the origin of the graph icon in my logo represents?
ORIGINS OF THE GRAPH ICON
The icon represents the accumulation of money from gambling, only to lose it all and more in a short period of time.
My wife asked me one day why I felt I wouldn’t gamble any longer. We were out to lunch, so I grabbed a napkin and began drawing this graph.
I explained to her that when I was gambling, I only focused on the upswing or wins. My mind was fixated on recreating the wins I had achieved in the past.
I went on to say that now I’m able to see the full graph. I realize that each win was followed by a much greater loss and the significant downward trend. No matter how big my win is, I’ll always chase for more until I’m heading in the wrong direction.
The full graph reminds me of my reality and helps me to abstain from gambling by seeing the full picture.
