This daily journal came from a promise. Right before Memorial Day 2009, I met with my business coach Joe Stumpf. I shared with him my total burn out in my business of 20 years. Frustrated by what my life had become, I promised to get up at 5:00 AM every day, meditate and journal and focus on bringing passion back into every aspect of my life, my work, my family and my personal growth. Instead of going to work every day and having a PITY PARTY, I have decided to have a PASSION PARTY.

Passion Party #529 - Failure and Endurance
We all face failure.
In the real world everyone does not get a trophy.
People keep score
and there are winners and losers.
Fear of failure can stop many a dream.
If you don't try, you won't fail
but you also kill the chance for success.
I went through the early part of my life
taking jobs that taught me what I did not want to do.
It did not feel like failure
it was more a situation of learning form my mistakes.
