Live from Sarajevo

Monday Motivation: Elizabethtown

Drew, a shoe designer, is ready to end his life after costing his company one billion dollars. However, a call from his sister interrupts his plans. His father has just passed away and he must return to his hometown.

There, in Elizabethtown with the help of a flight attendant named Claire, he faces his failure head on.

In this scene, Claire and Drew finally talk about his big failure. She has some good advice for all of us who try and fail.

“You want to be really great, then fail big and have the courage to stick around. Make ’em wonder why your still smiling.”

What keeps you from failing big and sticking around? Maybe this is a good week to start.
