I share another mindset/idea to have in this video, in more detail. Essentially the idea is, the first thing you ever say to ANYONE you ever meet in your life, is completely irrelevant...
So don't worry about what you say, or what the right thing to say is, anything like that – because your spectator/subject/target is not going to remember it. It can be as simple as, "Hey, what's up?"
Again, I'll post more ideas as the thread grows. Please share your experiences of the feelings you've had when approaching someone, whether related to magic and you performing a trick or not. We're here to grow as a community of people just as much as grow as magicians. So please, share a story of a time when you were nervous, anxious, worried, excited, confident to approach and interact with a stranger for the first time, regardless of the outcome of the story. We need to learn the lessons to our mistakes!
Other than that, enjoy the video.
