Realize Your Personal Legend

“Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is. At one point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible. They are not afraid to dream, to yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives. But, as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to realize their Personal Legend.”

“To realize one’s Personal Legend is a person’s only real obligation. All things are one. And when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” 

- Paulo Coelho. The Alchemist. Harper Collins: New York, 1998. pg 21.
2. Ibid pg 22.

The novel deals with finding your place in the world and realizing the connections we have with the world itself. This story is very touching and it tells us to follow our hearts. What a great message.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone.

Happy Monday Everyone!
