Once you have seen mentalists by performing different acts then it looks very strange and if you’ve some experience in learning those tricks then you won’t be surprised that the secrets are simple once you know what they are.
Becoming a Mentalist?
Everyone heard a famous saying that “Practice makes perfect”. Before performing a trick in front of an audience for just 5 minutes, a mentalist has to spend hours of practice to perfect. Once he/she feel comfortable doing the trick without using any “cheat sheets”, then he/she try to perform it in front of someone (family, friends).
After having performing at different levels now it’s become much easier to perform in front of audience. I still feel that performing in front of your family and performing to large audience is different ball game altogether.
Another thing to consider is that all this process doesn’t end here but in order to do well, simply learning the formula of a trick is not enough. You must add following features as well like a great deal of confidence, spatial awareness, sense of timing, the ability to concentrate on several components and actions simultaneously, multi-task, respond intuitively and spontaneously to the unexpected, read body-language, improvise and exercise a potent memory capacity.
You may be dishearted by seeing the above long list but as with other fields, these all skills come with time. You cannot develop mental agility to this degree overnight. You have seen bodybuilders having strong muscles but they develop after years of exercise. The mind operates in the same manner as our muscles that can be developed through constant usage and proper nutrition. Mental agility will also come after doing years of practice and the more you practice, early the results will come.
You may be thinking that muscles can be develop through exercise but what are the exercises for brain? Do keep in mind that learning a series of magic tricks is a great exercise for the mind. It builds memory and mental concentration, confidence-building and co-ordination and perceptive capacities.
Truly, you can see how this exercise has developed skills in the most famous mentalsits so comprehensively and with such fast and powerful. Even you as acquire those skills by adopting the above method i have described.
