The Magic Formula to Success Now

“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure, or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember, that’s where you will find success.”

I have creative friends.  They are inventors of magic and stage technology, musicians and painters. We get together every month at the Magic & Mystery School and at WONDERGROUND to share new ideas, and to see what the Las Vegas performance art crowd thinks and feels about our offerings.

As Larry Hass says, “Getting an idea from paper to the stage is a process that, if done correctly, is NOT tedious!  It takes hard work, but even hard work can be lots of fun!”

“Productivity is being able to do things that you were never able to do before.” – Franz Kafka


What type are YOU? Are YOU a “creative type” or a “producer type?”

There is a BIG difference between these types.

Let me ask you an important question. Are you getting expert feedback? How do you know when you are “off the deep end” or “right on target?”

Producer types “get it done.” They have systems, and they have developed formulas to grind away at tasks…and that, too can be fun. We certainly get a sense of accomplishment when a deal is done or a new product is brought to market. My manager, Tobias, is a real wizard at this type of creative-productive merging of talents.

His book, The Wizard’s Way, teaches how real wizards produce new products and manifest creative ideas.

I’m always looking for new sources of inspiration to empower my life and business. Here is a chart I found the other day.

How to Be Productive Chart

I printed out this chart and hung it on my wall so I could see it every day!

Make more of your time and energy.

This article will help you learn techniques to grow a more prosperous future.


I save many people from making costly mistakes. Last week a student wanted to get props built, and had placed an order with a builder who is less than honest. I turned him on to our Mystery School resources and saved him over $50,000.00

A 1-hour consultation with an expert can forever change the way you work and produce.

My hypnotism mentor is Dr. Richard Nongard.  He and I have innovated a hybrid form of magic & hypnotism. Now, you can see the highlights reel we just created, with our compliments!

“Real magicians invent the future!”

One of the ways to create the future is to set goals.  Set short term and long term goals. Use “smart goals.”

A useful way of making goals more powerful is to use the SMART mnemonic. While there are plenty of variants (some of which we’ve included in parenthesis), SMART usually stands for:

  • S – Specific (or Significant).
  • M – Measurable (or Meaningful).
  • A – Attainable (or Action-Oriented).
  • R – Relevant (or Rewarding).
  • T – Time-bound (or Trackable).

For example, instead of having “to study magic in Las Vegas” as a goal, it’s more powerful to use the SMART goal “To have completed my Master Class training by August 2016.” Obviously, this will only be attainable if a lot of preparation has been completed beforehand!

One of my goals is to create and produce a new WONDERGROUND event each month.  Now THAT is a deadline! How do I do it?  I have the pleasure of working with a great team! Each month, we develop new ideas and book new performers for that month’s one-time-only night of magic and variety.
