Hi! My name is David Gichner and I'm a 15-year-old magician. Back when I was 8 years old I saw a magic show and from that moment, my life changed, but I didn't realize it at first. I was just like every other 8 year old, I looked up magic tricks on youtube then performed them for my friends. I told everyone that I want to be a magician when I grow up but I was still young. I even decided to start a youtube channel and I taught some tricks that I learned from magic kits or other youtube videos. The years went on and I still said I wanted to be a magician as a career. I continued to see magic shows whenever I could. I was a little kid at the time though and I couldn't keep focus forever. When I turned 9 I started a business. At 10 years old, I did magic at 2 of my friend's little sister's birthday parties. That business didn't last very long because I was very young. I still loved magic but I didn't learn magic daily, I took tons of long breaks from it and then would come back to it occasionally. When I was 11 I realized that people don't want to hire a 10-year-old for their kid's birthday party. At this time I still practiced magic but only on certain occasions. This was until later on...

About a year ago, I visited the Houston Museum of fine arts with a girl I'd never met before. It was our first date, and, much more importantly, my first time seeing a Van Gogh painting. She was a nice girl, but it's Van Gogh. Gotta keep my priorities straight. I love art, especially post-impressionism, so this was a dream come true for me. And the night did not disappointment. When I left the exhibit, I was only sure of one thing: The art I saw was special, like really special. Not long after leaving, I went with the girl, and her sisters to this Greek place in Montrose called Niko Nikos. Yeah, I said her sisters. It was a chaperoned date. After they finished eating, the girl and her family left me at the restaurant waiting for my Uber—thinking hard if I liked her enough to go on a second date. I've learned since if you have to ask that question, the answer is a NO. So, unfortunately, the art of the Dutch master temporarily took a 5 in the thinking space of my mind (playing the dating will do that shit to you). Later that week, the girl and I went on one other date (unchaperoned). Since then, I've gone on many more dates with the other person I was with: Vincent Van Gogh.
Wisdom creates knowledge. Over the years, I’ve been experiencing new things, finding myself, creating hobbies, discovering talents I thought I never had before. It’s unique and brilliant how we are given these talents we didn’t know we had until we actually start doing them. As I got older, I isolated myself with everyone and started focusing on me. Giving myself time to learn the things that I can wasn't good at. Albert Einstein always engrossed me with one of his famous quotes,” If you judge a fish by it's ability to climb a tree, it'll live it's whole life believing it is stupid.”
As the saying goes: 'no-one’s perfect.' Then why do we work so hard at trying to get things right - all the time? Nobody wants to intentionally fail, and not showing up for a presentation or a test can be down to fear. It’s what we tell ourselves that determines our next steps and sometimes, the next few years of our lives.

Something that we as young professionals overlook in our day to day lives is our teamwork. How often do we sit back and analyze the team of people we work with and envision them as teams seeking to achieve an ultimate goal. In fact, that may be the last thing on our minds when we're young and pursuing our professions. That, or it may come as second nature. We all know the saying, teamwork makes the dream-work. But how many of us are actually making the dream work? Does it align with our dream? Are we even dreaming? Is teamwork really effective?
Once I was feeling shallow, I thought you I should stop working on my goals because it was only a time consuming and energy wasting project. So I decided to watch a movie for making my mood better and then move forward doing something else in life. I ended up watching the movie "Yes Man" which completely changed me; today I am at a place where my goals give me a glaring look. After this Life changing incident, I want you guys to must watch under given movies to change your life and become successful.
