Focus is a must


To be a success you must have focus.
One of the hardest things is to stay focused on one task at a time and get it done. I do not know if I have A.D.D but I feel like it sometimes. I am one of these kind of people that just keeps going and moves on to the next thing as quick as I can. I am working on getting focused and be more about task. I have a blackberry and have a bunch of different applications for it but I forget to use the task list sometimes.
Here is what I have found out though. When I do get focused on things I get all kind of things done and I feel better about myself at the end of the day and because of that I am ready for the next day. Every time I get into the office with focus on the brain I get all kinds of shows booked and am just must happier when people turn me down.
So if you are like me this takes training yourself and that is hard work. But once we get it believe it works great. Those are my two cents today. Let me know how this works for you.
As always enjoy magic and enjoy life.

Success is in the Mind


In this new year I am going to start sharing with you some secrets of success that I have found and wanting to help others with it. I will also be sharing my thoughts with you sometimes in a video that I will post on here. Well with that out of the way here we go.
Success can only come from your mind
In my line of work (being a Comedy Magician) there is a lot of people being so negative about things. Here is the thing that I have found out. You can only be a success if you think you are. Zig Ziglar once said " Look in the mirror everyday and tell yourself how great of a person you are".
I do not do this everyday but every show I do. I will find a mirror someplace where I am and tell myself that I am the best at what I do. Since I have been doing this every show my shows and attitude has changed. I do kind of the same thing everyday here at my home. Since most of my work is working at home where there is a dog and other things to do I have to put myself in the focus area. I have a time to go to work (walk into my office) and a break time and most of the time I dress up. All of these things have helped me have a more successful look on the things that I do.
So stop wasting your time looking at web sites that will take you far from where you want to be and start setting your mind with the idea that you are a successful person and I can tell you that it works. It has for me and I know it will for you as well. Let me know if it does work.
Go out and enjoy magic and enjoy life.

Roy Benson a great magician




So the other day I was looking around youtube and found what I have needed to. Roy Benson was a great magician. Not a lot of people know him besides the Benson bowl. He is a very funny magician. I love how he know s who he is, His character is perfect. He loves what he does and you can get that through his act.

Finding your character is something that all magicians need to do. Most magicians just buy a trick and there you go. There is so much more to being a magician then buying and doing the effect. You have to know who you are and what you want your spectators to feel during your act. Roy does all of these and he is perfect. We will miss him.

Meltdown is out

Wow this is my favorite effect that I perform. I always have it with me in my car ready to go.
Take a borrowed quarter
Have it signed --- You shatter it into pieces.
The pieces are clearly visible in your hand or on the table. Using no covering you immediately make the quarter whole again and return the quarter to the spectator. It's just that simple and direct. The performer picks up the pieces and 'melts' them together right in front of every one's eyes. They see the pieces fuse back together.
This valuable video will give you step-by-clear-step the secret and handling of this most unusual trick
You will love this effect. If you are looking for an effect to perform that looks like real magic then meltdown is for you. Click here to pick yours up today.
