if you are lucky enough you can but i wouldn't try to
You make your own "luck." There is an old saying that is very TRUE "Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, the body of man can do."
Before anyone gets a bra in a knot, the correct rules of English say when the sex is unknown or can be either sex, the masculine gender will be used. But the important thing is that if you are good enough, and if you take the courage to TRY you will succeed. All it takes is effort.
I started in magic at 54 years of age. After I got god enough to work a restaurant I started working one night a week for a little over a year, then added another, then went full time 5 years ago. If I can do it at my age kids like you can do it if you want to. You just have to work a little harder.
That is the reason I do not put up with a lot of the crap, because I know that if someone gets off their lazy butt they can do it. It takes some effort to write in proper English, and to practice real magic. If you leave the gimmicks alone and work on slieghts you can be a very successful magician.
