Self help Magic is the best help
Everyone enjoys being the center of attention once in a while and performing magic is one of the most effective ways of accomplishing this objective.
But suppose there is no magic school in close vicinity that you can enroll into?
Don’t worry and don’t lose heart because you can still train to be an impressive magician that you want to be and entertain people no matter what their age-group or gender is.
How? Through self-help Magic of course!!
Yes, it is indeed possible to master the art of successfully performing magic tricks even without having undergone formal training simply by following these self-help edicts –
Self study – Reading a book based on the subject has been a time tested way of acquiring information since ages and magic is no exception to this rule.
There are various sources for acquiring books but the most common, convenient as also cost effective option is that of the library.
EBooks are also a good choice as long as the source is valid and the content stands the test of verification.
Irrespective of the type of book, you are bound to gain some knowledge by reading it and then it is just a matter of putting all the theoretical know-how into practice by trying out.
Self networking – Surely there must be hundreds of magicians spread all over the world who might be positioned at different phases of this profession.
Having been through a phase similar to yours or currently experiencing it makes them empathic towards their fellow professionals and that is why they are always ready to help in terms of guidance, tips and good advice.
All that you need to do is to reach out to this scattered community and become a part of it in order to gain as also to contribute meaningfully.
Self professionalism – Cultivate your own inherent professionalism by watching, observing and interacting closely with big fish of the pond through organizations that promote fraternity feelings and uphold brotherhood.
Although you might have to pay a joining fee and a monthly subscription, the benefits far accrue the expenditure since you will receive not just first-hand training but also opportunities that could escalate your career graph.
Self – practice – To be perfect you must practice endlessly regardless of where you are or with whom. Standing in front of a mirror is a good way to break ice followed by a session in front of family members or close friends.
As you gain confidence you must attempt practicing in front of an informal audience like a birthday party for children or a family or office get-together.
Subsequently you can move on to perform in front of large unknown crowd but even then never let a moment go by when you can practice one of your tricks.
Self –identity – Carve your own distinct identity the moment you dream of becoming a magician and work towards polishing and maintaining it from day one.
As you practice and eventually perform, there should be certain moves that should be clearly identified as being yours only and this will help you to build your reputation and create your own space in the vast ocean of professional magic.
