#28 - Lior Suchard on First Impressions, Playing Tricks For a Living, and Positive Thinking
“We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing”. George Bernard Shaw
Lior Suchard (@liorsuchard) is one of the world’s most well known and critically acclaimed mentalists. His performances combine his unique talent for mind reading, thought influencing and telekinesis to name a few. If you haven’t had the rare pleasure of seeing him in action I highly recommend you do. From shows taped before a live audience like The Ellen Degeneres Show and his own Quibi show Gone Mental with Lior, to private events for mind trick enthusiasts around the world, Lior never fails to bring his audience to their knees and often leaves skeptics dumbfound.
Referred to as an “Intuitive Social Scientist” by well known behavioral economist Dan Ariely, a previous guest on this podcast, Lior has relied on hard work and old fashion ‘positive’ hustling to perform what is arguably one of his most impressive tricks of all - taking a childhood passion for wonderment and play and turning into a thriving, exciting and unpredictable career.
Lior’s book Mind Reader: Unlocking the Power of Your Mind to Get what You Want is a celebration of the limitless capacity of our minds to create and manifest even the most unimaginable. In his book he shares secrets from behind the scenes of his own performances as well as real life personal stories that offer insight into practical techniques that can help every day people tap into the extraordinary in order to bring about positive change in their lives.
In our sit down together we speak about:
The limitlessly entertaining and highly profound power of the mind
The path of least resistance: following the flow of life
The power of relationships and building a global network
Striking the right balance between story and product
The value of recognizing and acting on opportunities that come your way
The role of luck and intuition in achieving success
