Fear of loss is a powerful motivator, which works well on the way up and the way down (i.e. dont want to sell the "next" Cisco, dont want to hold the "next" Microstrategy, depending on circumstances). While we seek ways to reduce our emotional responses to external events, I guess we are all pretty emotional creatures, and can only hope to manage emotions rather than ignore them.
