Sometimes magic doesn’t lie in casting spells or force of will. Sometimes the magic happens when you take action, reach out, speak up.
Just like luck, sometimes you have to make the magic happen.
In the 2016 movie Dr Strange, the titular character asks the Ancient One how he can get from a place of zero knowledge to where she is.
The Ancient One replies with a question, “How did you get to reattach severed nerves and put a human spine back together bone by bone?”
“Study and practice. Years of it,” Strange says.
Magic doesn’t happen overnight. Sometimes it’s a slow and steady climb. Sometimes it requires years of making mistakes, trying again, failing, trying again, maybe losing your way but still trying again.
If you want to do great things, you have to be courageous enough to try. You have to be willing to bend rules, even rules of the Universe.
Like Dr Strange, who did things before he was ready, who experimented with the little that he knew and thus, learned even more. Who was willing to do what he was “not supposed to” in order to save humanity.
Not everyone is capable of big magic. The ones who are have to be brave enough to wield it.
