My musings over Piersic’s unique show


I was recently to a Florin Piersic show. For those who do not know who he is, I will simply say Florin Piersic is a famous Romanian actor and TV-personality. He is also known as a colourful raconteur that can talk for hours without getting his audience bored.

The show lasted for about 2 hours, and I was impressed by his talent to share stories and simultaneously evoke a palette of emotions. I laughed and cried, and I was happy to have had the chance to see him in a live performance.

This was not your typical show, but rather a collection of vibrant life stories told in a unique style. The charming Piersic has the talent to transform the world around him in a tale, and that is why he was and remains a remarkable personality!

After 2 hours I felt energised and inspired. I also understood instantly that I will have to put aside some time and digest all that he shared, because there was far more substance to that than an instant emotion.

A week went by and after playing with the information, these are my key takeaways:

  1. Life is like a theatre stage! There is an initial set-up and then it runs based on the director’s instructions. In this image you are the director.
  2. We, people, need other people to survive! We need others to share ideas, to spar, to argue, to get new perspectives… We need to feed both our brain and soul. We are enriching our lives every time we meet someone who is able to challenge us and influence us to see and go beyond our status quo.
  3. We need good friends to travel through life! They are those people one will share both the glorious and joyful days as well as the sad and tumultuous moments. With them one will be comfortable to share laughs and tears because one knows these friends genuinely care about ones wellbeing.
  4. We need a clear map to our happy place! Life is sometimes too serious and stressful. Therefore, we need to know which road is the easiest and fastest to our happy place.
  5. We need a guiding star! Of course, it is not a static star, but rather one that is adjusting throughout our life, given our maturity level at any point in time.
  6. We need someone to look up to! Even the most successful people need a role model to admire and aspire to become.

In an interconnected world, we cannot stand alone. We need to be among people, and continuously find sources of inspiration. Interacting with others puts us in a vulnerable position, but it also provides us with the needed resources to enhance our existence.

When I think of myself at almost 82 years old (Piersic’s age) I would love to look back and be happy and proud of the people I met, the places I visited, the steps I took, the choices I made and the legacy I left to the world.
