I am always looking for inspiration and thankfully, I never have to look far to find it. Today, I came across this video. The guy’s name is Chris Bliss. He’s a juggler.
“Yawn,” you say, “a juggler. Does he jump on a trampoline and juggle chain saws? If not, I’ve probably already seen it.”
Chris is a simple juggler. He juggles 3 small balls. He’s wearing street clothes. There are no pretty girls, no backdrops, no fire, no chain saws. Just Chris, a beautiful song and his take on that song.
I’m not even sure what makes this video and Chris so compelling. I know I was inspired by it and the audience watching him gives him a standing ovation.
My take away is this. Chris brings his own ‘voice’ to his craft. Do you think Chris is being true to himself? Do you think he is letting his passion show?
I work to find my voice by doing the things I love, by connecting with passionate people and by believing in myself. Some of the happiest people I know are those who love what they do for a living.
Maybe losing that last job was a blessing in disguise. I’ll bet that Chris spent a lot of hours juggling and wondering if he was doing the right thing before he performed in that hall, to that song for those people.
Please tell me how you’re finding your voice, your passion… and what you think of Chris Bliss.
