I DO believe (and have,despite self doubt sometimes) that I can acheive anything I set my mind to. I don't ever tell myself in my magic, "I can't do that." I Can do anything, if I set my mind to it. The sky is the limit. This is my attitude. I'm not dismissing anyone, I just wanted to say that that's how I feel. When I saw Ponta's vanish 2 years ago, it was the most beautiful thing to me , the best trick I ever saw. I didn't say to myself when I watched the video and realized how difficult it was, "I can't do this. It's impossible." I said to myself, "I will succeed in this no matter what. I will practice in 3 hours everyday, as long as it takes, to get it as smooth as Ponta. If it takes 10 years, it will take 10 years, but I will do it." The problem arises in trying to be as smooth as *ponta*. Ponta is unique, I'm unique. We all have different styles. No matter how hard I try, my movements will always look a little different. I have to do MY best. Because I can't compare to others, no matter how hard I try, I won't be as good as Ponta, because I will be as good as Kevin. Today was a great day. I had this fear eating me up for months. I was afraid of going into a restaurant and asking if they would hire a magician (me). I was afraid they would say no. I knew this fear was ridiculous, but it paralyzed me. Then I thought to myself, "You don't know if you don't try. And if you fail, try, try again." And I was surprised. He said they had a clown but he had injuries and they didn't know for sure if he was going to make it on Tuesday. On tuesday they do kids night. I thought it would be fantastic if I could do my sponges. People love the sponges, and always told me kids would like them, I think so too. He asked for my name and number and said he'd give me a call if the guy couldn't make it. I walked away happy knowing I tried, got over my fear, and had a possibility to volunteer and get more experience in a restaurant. And that's what magic is about to me - making others day. It makes my day too. The manager didn't want to see any magic though. [/quote]
