3 Life Lessons From Magician David Blaine

This video started resurfacing on the internet recently, so I decided to write a little piece on some lessons that I learned from magician, David Blaine, through the video.

1. Anything is possible

Simply put, anything is possible. Whatever your goal in life, or for the day, week, school, social life, hobbies, etc. know that anything is possible. So don’t give up on something that seems impossible too easily. If David Blaine can put an ice pick through his hand, I’m sure you can accomplish your dreams and goals too. David Blaine even says,

“When the magic is real, but seems impossible… That’s the greatest trick of all.”

There’s magic all around us in this world, just make it appear when things seem impossible. Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.

2. Mind over Body

Just like how anything is possible, you can always put your mind over your body. I’m currently writing this at 4 in the morning. My body is tired, my mind is tired, my back hurts, I am sleepy, along with a few more tiresome body symptoms that are making me want to quit writing this. But at the end of the day, my mind is telling me that I can do this, and that I can finish up the work that I want to do regardless of how my body feels. The same goes for sports, physical activities, work, school, etc… Your mind can always push yourself to greater heights that your body may feel unable to accomplish. Let your mind know that you can do it, and you’ll be fine. Mind over body. You got this!

3. Some things are unexplainable

I’m sure no one can explain what happened in that video. No one knows how David Blaine just happened to pierce an ice pick through his hand without a single drop of blood. Not even the doctor knows what happened. I feel that a lot of times in life, unimaginable things happen, but people choose not believe in it because they can’t explain it. Kind of like how some people don’t believe in aliens because we’ve been here for so many years and have no evidence of them, yet people have been claiming “alien theories and sightings” for years. There are so many examples we could list when talking about this, from historical, scientific disputes to miracles, there are just so many things that seem magical or unexplainable, that might make a person viewing the subject disbelieve or think indifferently about the situation. It’s definitely a thought to think about though… So many people in our world have different opinions on various subjects, there is a truth to all perspectives, but maybe we as a human race should start to consider all potential possibilities.

“You know what the issue is with this world? Everyone wants a magical solution to their problems, but everyone refuses to believe in magic.”
