As a youngster in school, I was shy...smaller than other boys my age...not particularly good at any sport. Nobody hated me, but nobody seemed to like me very much either. Then I saw a magic show. I was fascinated. I got books from the library. I studied everything I could find. Soon, I could do some simple tricks.
I did some magic for a few kids at a class party...everybody gathered around...they liked my magic. More importantly they liked me! The girls, as well as the guys, seemed to like me more. I never expected this. The "magic" was working for me!
Then I figured out why it worked for me, and why it will work for you, too. When you show someone a really good magic trick, their first reaction is one of surprise and wonder ... "How did you do that?" ... followed by admiration and respect for you, the magician. "That was really good. Can you do something else?"
As I learned more, I began to be recognized as a magician.
I began to stand out from the crowd. At the same time, my confidence and feeling of self worth increased. I began to overcome my shyness. I was better able to deal with people. With my increased confidence, I became more successful in everything I did.
That's what magic did for me and it will do the same for you.
Just think about it. When your friends know you can entertain with magic, who do you suppose they're going to invite to their next party? You, of course. Because, you can turn any get-together, from a beach party to a banquet, from dull to fun with your wonderful magic.
