The crazy adventure of entrepreneurship requires a certain type of attitude when dealing with all the ups and downs. Similar to the common expression in sports, you can never get too high or too low when building a business. There are good times and bad, and that's just part of the ride. It doesn't mean that we shouldn't be extremely passionate about what we're doing or shouldn't allow ourselves to feel all the emotions. But maintaining sanity over the long haul requires a healthy dose of mental consistency and stability.
