Definition of result oriented

Literally, "result oriented". A player who would be called "result oriented" is a player who, even if he made a good play, if the result is not in his favor, will blame himself. If you push all in preflop with QQ and your opponent calls with AK, you have made a good play, you are a favorite. From that point on, no matter what the result is, you should feel good about yourself; you have done the right thing. A result oriented player, if he loses the hand, may say to himself "I should have folded my hand, I shouldn't have gone all in, I knew I was going to lose".

You play poker for the long term

Your job as a poker player is to make good decisions. In the short term, the results may not be in your favor. But you know that in the long run, the results will be in your favor. The outcome is something you can't control. As a poker player, you want to put energy into what you can control. If the math tells you that in the long run you will win the hand 55% of the time by making this play or that play, you have to do it and think about the long run and not the short run.
