The Equilibrist

What Does It Take To Be an Equilibrist? Balance, of course, first and foremost.

Balance may be either inborn emotional, spiritual and physical equilibrium, as the result of natural characteristics and/or personal inner as well as physical strength, or may be acquired by means of sheer willpower and constant and painstaking exercise, combined with the steadfast intention to reach a particular goal, even when such goal is arduous or nearly impossible.
Equilibrium in a balancing act demands therefore ability, talent, courage, physical and emotional strength, willpower and poise even when faced with the risk of losing such balance and in that case, the true equilibrist may even falter but shall continue striving to reach the other end of the rope, without getting discouraged.
