Learn how to hold your breath for a really long time and why David Blaine is an absolutely amazing human being.

“As a magician I try to show things to people that seem impossible. And I think magic, whether I’m holding my breath or shuffling a deck of cards, is pretty simple. It’s practice, it’s training, and it’s – It’s practice, it’s training and experimenting, while pushing through the pain to be the best that I can be. And that’s what magic is to me, so, thank you.”

After watching this talk I have far more of an interest and respect for David Blaine then I did before. I’ve heard great things about his book from Random talks with Kevin Rose and Tim Ferriss and plan to order Mysterious Stranger: A Book of Magic this week. It’s in the speech, it’s in the quote above, it’s now on a sticky note above my desk … plain and simple once of the most inspirational reminders to hear daily “– It’s practice, it’s training and experimenting, while pushing through the pain to be the best that I can be” David Blaine
