About the journey

Acrobat and performing artist, Yoann Bourgeois, built a ten-step staircase next to a trampoline. And he will perform his act by showing the struggle it takes to reach the top. When you first watch, you think the point is to reach the top, and then he can stop falling but I don’t think that is what Bourgeois is saying. He reminds us that the destination isn’t the point. You reach your goal to be on top of the steps and then what?

The goal is the journey and the process. Along the way, you are going to perpetually fail over and over again. Sure, there might be satisfaction and temporary rest at the top but you will eventually have to start over again.

You are more resilient than you think you are. Life is and always will be a struggle. That is the point. It wouldn’t be life without it–it would be something else.
