Strength doesn't come from what you can do...

This week, let's talk about strength.

"Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. But rather, from overcoming what you thought you couldn’t do" - Shin Lim 

I came across this quote while on vacation in Vegas (and making some things happen. More on that in a later newsletter). 

For those who don’t know, Shin Lim is an incredible magician who was able to fool Penn & Teller (on their show “Fool Us”) multiple times. Shin then went on to win America’s Got Talent 2 years in a row; he won season 13 (in 2018) and then won the All Star show the next year. 

When some people think of magic, they think of large set pieces and extravagant tricks. What Shin Lim specializes in is close up card magic. 

His show, along with his colleague Colin Cloud, was incredible. 

I won’t share everything about the show, and I highly suggest you check it out if you visit Vegas, but he did share a story about strength. 

Shin had suffered a career-ending injury. Doctors told him he would never be able to perform magic again. Over time, he was able to overcome that injury. 

The message of perseverance and working hard to overcome such an injury is something some of us can definitely relate to.

There was also another aspect of the show that really caught my attention. 

While we were enjoying this show, all I could think about was how perfectly timed the music was to his performance. 

One music track that I kept hearing was a version of “Time” by Hans Zimmer. It was a piece of music Hans Zimmer created for the movie “Inception,” 10 years ago!

“Time” has probably been one of the most requested “sound alike” tracks I’ve been asked to make over the years. It is a great piece. Definitely check it out when you get a chance. 

I even talked about it on Instagram live (follow me on IG if you’re not following). 

Check out Time here if you get a chance. 

Also, check out Shin Lim’s “Limitless” magic show next time you’re in Vegas.
