I've never considered myself particularly clever. I'm not very good at figuring out how things work, but I have always been curious. Something that never failed to catch my attention was magicians, and how they perform their amazing tricks. After a lot of wondering, I finally took action and did something about it. Surprisingly, it was a lot easier to learn a magic trick than I would have thought.
Believe me, if I can do it, anyone can.
It turns out there are only two main things to remember. The first is to remind yourself that what you are doing is really just acting. You have to be aware that you are a showman on a stage, so the way you comport yourself is very important. You've got everyone's attention, you should show your confidence and prowess with a loud voice and grand, sweeping gestures.
The next thing to remember is what trick you are doing. This is actually the easy part, if you've taken a little time to learn a magic trick already. You should have the trick practiced enough that you can do it almost without thinking. As I said, most of your energy will be spent on how you act, so it's important to have an illusion that you are very comfortable with.
The best way to be sure that you can perform under pressure is to learn it well. Sometimes this takes a lot of practice, but in other cases you can expect to learn a magic trick in only a few attempts. Some of the most convincing illusions fall into this category.
