Hello everyone! Lately i have been feeling quit unmotivated when it comes to magic and actually a bit tired of it both when it comes to creating, practicing and performing. I just dont get any excitment from it anymore at all. I would like to hear if someone have gone through the same thing sometime during their long or short career in magic.? Whenever i used to get new material or a new book i used to get really excited about it, watched it or read it whenever i could and loved to practice the material and could not wait to go out and performe it. Now i just cant seem to bother. I got two great magic books a few days ago and i KNOW that they are AMAZING but when im going through them all i can think is "Oh thas probably great but i just cant bother and get the motivation to practice them, ill check them out later" and puts the book away. Same thing when it comes to performing magic. I get asked to performe all the time and i will usually do when i get asked because i dont want to disappoint anyone. But when i do i just cant seem to get the energy you need to pull off a great performance so i just end up doing something easy that does not really take much effort to pull off just to show them something and just to get done with them asking. Have anyone been through something like this? Could it be good idea to take a break? Just put the books and cards away for a few weeks and dont touch them for a few weeks and dont think about magic at all? Doing other things you enjoy? Have anyone done this? Its pretty sad because i really love magic and always has.
