Entrepreneur's mantra

I get really inspired by music and lyrics carry me through the day. I'm the kind of guy who would play the same song a dozen times simply because it stirs my soul. There was a time when my fellow programmers would threaten me with bodily harm if I didn't don my headphones. Mercifully for both parties I complied. I remember the early days even before the dot com boom, we would be young mavericks and "We are the Champions" from Queen would be our tune. Today, with a few more scars and a couple of gray hairs, Alanis Morisette seems to be more appropriate. Heard this over the radio this weekend...I kinda related to it. You can view the full lyrics here. Here's an excerpt so you get what I mean about this particular song being the entrepreneur's mantra.

I'm broke but I'm happy
I'm poor but I'm kind
I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah!

I'm high but I'm grounded
I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed
I'm lost but I'm hopeful, baby

And what it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be fine fine fine...

Funny how we all share the same kind of emotions, I guess we're all more similar that we really think...
