One of my favorite scenes in a movie… YOU FAILED YOU FAILED YOU FAILED….Elizabethtown.

Cameron Crowe has some of the best movie scenes ever.  Not that his movies aren’t great – but I seem to remember scenes from his movies more than I remember his movies.

Jerry Maguire::  Show me the money, and You had me at Hello

Almost Famous::  Singing Elton John on the Bus

Say Anything::  Holding the Boombox playing Peter Gabriel and “I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen”.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High – Sean Penn? fogetaboutit.

Anyway….Ran into someone yesterday that reminded me of this scene.  Because they failed – NO.  Because  they were still smiling.

Failing, losing…..whatever you want to call it is not only inevitable but essential – essential when you are throwing your hat in the ring in any meaningful way.  It’s just part of the journey.

What isn’t inevitable and absolutely essential for success and or peace?  Smiling.  🙂
