Last week I was very fortunate to be asked if i would like to have a small story published in the Lancashire Evening Post. I was thrilled to accept and gave a brief interview to reporter Tom Earnshaw who asked about my recent performances including traveling out to the middle east.

I feel we all need inspiration to believe and to carry our dream
We all dream lets face it, I dream to be the best Magician in the world (big dream I know) but the struggle is keeping the belief alive that it can be done, staying on course to remain motivated and inspired to work hard and get up and try and try until that dream becomes reality.
Anyone that knows me will know how motivated I am to do my best, from the moment of getting a booking I want to deliver, preparing my close-up bag I leave no stone unturned, the journey to the venue is taken up going through the motions analysing what I will do, how I be better and what can I do to prove my worth. I find great comfort in watching inspirational stories and reading how people have come from nothing to achieve their dreams.
One person whose dreams were always knocked down was Sylvester Stallone. A broke wannabe actor who had to sell his beloved dog he needed money that bad. He wrote one of the greatest films of all time Rocky in 3 days but struggled to be given the green light for the main role. However he stuck to his guns, plugged away and believed in what potential and talent he had. Since that film he has never looked back and I still to this day listen and believe in his speeches taken from the films: ‘If you know what your worth, then go and get what your worth, but you got to willing to take the hits and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you want to be because of him or her or anybody, cowards do that and that ain't you! Your better than that!’ This I feel is such a true saying and one that sticks with me as when I was younger, when I wasn’t very good, when I didn’t perfect my art enough, I wanted an excuse for not getting to where I wanted to be. The second quote ‘it ain't about how hard you hit, its about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward! That’s how winning is done!’ Again such true words that we all take knocks, we all have to get up and keep going, keep fighting. Getting up makes us learn, makes us better and drives us ever closer to our dreams.
My wife tagged me in a short video from Dwayne Johnson. Someone who I have the upmost respect for, for his work ethnic, his continuous drive and inspiring words. I have copied the link to the video below in the hope it can inspire you and motivate you, as that inspiration is needed to believe and carry our dreams.
