The art of living the entrepreneur's life takes a whole lot of don't know mind, willingness, consciousness, open-heartedness, and humility plus a shit load of know what you don't know yet, willingness to fail early and often, relentless focus, fight-club ferocity and a lot of show-me-the-money arrogance. 

That and a whole lot of gratitude for the people that held you, supported you and lifted you higher.

If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery - isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.
