“I had to make a decision to shift my weight from the foot anchored to the building to the foot anchored on the wire.”
The quote above is from a film I watched a few years ago, called “Man on Wire.” It is a documentary that shares the story of the incredibly talented Philippe Petit, and his breath-taking tight-rope walk across the Twin Towers. I love the above words because, in some ways, they symbolize what we all do when we take a chance, when we put ourselves out there, when we try something new. We may not be risking our life, but we still must make a decision to step forward from the safe into the unkown.
I found the documentary fascinating – the true story of a man following with courage his unusual vocation. Today, I want to share one of my favourite TED talks. Philippe Petit sums up his creative life in 20 minutes. It is really worth a listen. Inspirational and so entertaining!
