Looking Foolish, Being Great

"Until you're ready to look foolish, you'll never have the possibility of being great." 

Tonight, I'm going to see Cher in concert with one of my dearest friends...I rarely go to concerts so this is kind of a big deal for me. She might not be a southern belle, but I have always liked her. I love that quote above because I really believe it's true. Cher may have looked foolish in the eyes of some folks (perhaps for some of her fashion choices), but through it all she has persevered. And who wouldn't say she's great? 

I struggle with worrying about looking foolish, but ultimately I want to live the life I've always dreamed of...not matter what anyone thinks. 

I hope you have a wonderful week. The next time you feel a bit foolish, ask yourself if it's an opportunity for greatness?
