Musings From A Musical Mind

Keeping It Real

“Care more than others think wise. Risk more than others think safe. Dream more than others think practical. Expect more than others think possible.” Howard Schultz – CEO of Starbucks

I love this quote.  We are nothing without the ability to dream and challenge ourselves to things greater than ourselves.  I’ve been accused of caring too much – so I understand first hand what Mr. Schultz is saying here.  I’m also one to take risks and dream beyond what “normal” people think I should.  I’m a BIG possibility thinker and I’m sure that makes me quirky to most people around me – but I can’t help it.  I love a good challenge and love the people in my life that push me to areas that I may not be as comfortable in – but that believe in me and won’t settle for mediocrity or “safeness”.  That encourage me to “risk” myself.  To be nothing but authentic and real.  And yes – I will always expect more – and keep dreaming.  And I’m hoping that you will do the same ☺

Have an awesome day!

God Bless

    Good post Cindy!
    I like the chapter title from a John Maxwell I once read that said, “I couldn’t care more.”

  2. Oh Amen! I’m a quirky kind of gal too. I so enjoy reading your blog. I’m in the middle of editing my final version of my newest study and I so needed a break. What a blessing to come here and read your blogpost today.
