The Alchemist: A book that can change your lookout towards life.
” The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho, is not just a book to read but a journey, an experience, an erudition. It reveals several true facts that can make a person interact with his own powers, potential, abilities, convictions, beliefs and the capabilities, that were bogged down due to fear of failure. A man can move mountains, the need is just to know, ‘yes, I can and only I can’. It says when you truly want something the whole Universe and the soul of the Earth conspire to do so.
Some of the few influencing quotes from the book that should be known and followed:
1- “The darkest hour of the night came just before the dawn.”
Never lose hope. You never know what the other moment of bliss is bringing along for you. Life can always be a surprise.
2- “Pursue your dreams”
Those hands, that created the world, govern all things. When you want something within all your heart, that’s when you are closest to the soul of the world. It’s always that positive force, which works for you, without your acknowledgment.
3- “At a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by the fate”, this is the world’s greatest lie.
True words indeed. We oftentimes become slaves of fate and start living under its accordance. The results lead to ungratified life and displeasure towards lord. So, work harder in hard times, fate is nothing but a myth.
4- “The most pleasurable part of life is discovering our destiny”. Never believe that destiny will walk towards you. So, stop waiting and travel hard for it. You will learn the lessons of life through the amazing journey.
5-“Recognize omens”, the signals of lord often cross our ways but we fail to recognize. We miss understanding the signs, even the positive ones. Every sign from him is a way out towards destiny.
6-“People suffer because they don’t follow their heart and so our heart speaks more”. Our heart never stops speaking out until we listen to them. Since we rarely believe our own heart and this mistrust is the first step to demolish our own dreams.
7- “When you possess great treasures within you and try to tell others of them, seldom are you believed”. It says, be a cheerleader of your own. Don’t give clarifications to others. Keep those treasures within you and walk like a king.
8- “Your eyes show the strength of your soul.” Eyes are the way to heart and soul. They carry strength, intrepidity, poise, and elegance. The way you look the world and the way the world look into your eyes, that way can bring dynamic alterations around. Don’t let others see that you are afraid.
9- “Anyone who interferes with the destiny of another thing never will discover his own.” Everything that has been created by the almighty is destined for a purpose. A particle of sand cannot shine in the dark sky and stars cannot make the crust of the earth and accommodate the living organisms.
10- “When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”
Every another day brings hope and chance to do better, to become better. If you want to change the world around, begin with you.
Never let a dream be just a dream. Your dream is your life’s purpose. To learn from failures out of fears. Choose your own destiny, it’s all under your powers.
