I wanted to share a quote that I came across this past week. I think it was from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, but I could be wrong. Anyways, it's not important.

I was a quote about life, but can definitely be applied to poker. Here's the gist of it:

If you can manage to not get too excited about your successes, you will be able to handle your failures with greater ease.

It's just about trying to stay neutral and expecting nothing so that you are unaffected by results. This is a great mentality for handling the ups and downs of poker.
