Life is a journey, and one of the most difficult things in life is to go through bumpy roads. The very fact in life is that it is uncertain in itself. You cannot expect everything to go according to your plan. You have to make changes to your plan to match the practical reality of life and step ahead to realize your dream else; you will go backward. In other words, proceeding down the path of riches is like walking on the tightrope; maintaining a balance between your desire and reality.
In the circus, the performer proceeds very carefully on the rope stretched tightly high above the ground. They understand the value of maintaining balance while walking on the tightrope. They cannot afford to lean towards any side else; they will be in danger. The technique of the tightrope walk; that is, maintaining a balance between two equally dangerous opposite direction, can be well applied in our day to day life for realizing the desire of acquiring riches.
By applying the principle of the tightrope walk, most of the people have successfully translated their desire into reality despite facing the presence of heavy odds. They turn the challenges into opportunity and steps ahead to realize their goal. In difficult situations, they were very much content with the menial work, provided it help them to move ahead in the direction of their goal.
You can also adopt this principle to acquire riches when going gets tough else, you will go nowhere near to your desired goal. Suppose, you want to establish certain business. And you do not have the sufficient capital and expertise for that. Then you can apply and take any position in that industry to keep you up to date and raise some fund. Over a period, who knows, with your acquired knowledge and accumulated capital, you can attract some investor attention and set up your own business.
Hence, if you have the courage to proceed further while maintaining the balance between personal desire and external reality, you can achieve your goal sooner or later. This will also make your life an adventure by keeping you alert all the time, as if you are walking on the razor's edge.
