No one said building a company was easy. But it's time to be honest about how brutal it really is--and the price so many founders secretly pay.

I think the biggest psychological toll that entrepreneurship takes on most people is all the doubt that they have to face. Especially in the beginning when they have no results to show for a long time.

Like for anything there is a learning curve, but for entrepreneurship you don't see the results until you're a while down that curve. Most people can't face that doubt for long periods of time and give up.

Really awesome share. This one just spoke to me. Definitely got my vote :)

There can be huge psychological strains when it comes to business ownership. But if you really have a passion for it and it's working to your benefit, I say keep pressing forward.

Wow! This is just eye opening. I never expected entrepreneurs to struggle with a lot of mental problems. I guess, there really is a greater need for people that need psychological help especially in the business industry.
