The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
This book is one of the most inspiring, life-affirming books I have ever read.
There are too many things one can learn from “The Alchemist”. Its all about following your dream and about taking the risk of following your dreams, which is actually so difficult to do and there are very few people in this world who actually do, I mean risk it all, just to follow your heart and your dream.
This book is very inspiring and what I really need right now to motivate myself with my everyday endeavors. In the end the boy in the story who was searching for his treasure, despite the long travels and experiences, find his treasure not in the place where he suspected it to be, but in the place where he came from. It’s just pretty ironic that what have you looking for is in the end is just beside you right from the beginning. It’s just that what he learned and discovered from his travel is another treasure that he should realize in order to appreciate himself and the things around him.
“The Alchemist“ really changed my perspective on things and made me ask myself what is my “personal legend“.
So, I am asking you right now – What is yours?
