Don’t Be Concerned with What Others Think
Be Grateful for Every Day Santiago thinks to himself, “When each day is the same as the next, it’s because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.”
Take Off Your Rose-Colored Glasses! While reflecting on the incident and his misfortune, the boy was able to come to terms with it, “I’m like everyone else – I see the world in terms of what I would like to see happen, not what actually does.”
Be Observant and Open to Learning New Things As he is crossing the desert, he thinks to himself, “I’ve learned things from the sheep, and I’ve learned things from crystal, he thought. I can learn something from the desert, too. It seems old and wise.”
Focus on the Present The next lesson comes in a conversation he has with the camel driver who says to Santiago, “Because I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate on the present, you’ll be a happy man.”
Don’t Let Anyone or Anything Derail Your Dreams While contemplating whether to stay with Fatima or continue on his journey, the alchemist says, “You must understand that love never keeps a man from pursuing his Personal Legend. If he abandons that pursuit, it’s because it wasn’t true love…”
Take Action to Learn The alchemist responds with, “There is only one way to learn…It’s through action. Everything you need to know you have learned through your journey…”
The Real Treasure! The real treasure was not the riches he found buried beneath the church. Rather, the real riches were the lessons learned, the personal growth and improvements he made, and the experiences he had in the search for his Personal Legend.
Never Give Up Pursuing Your Personal Legend Just as Santiago never gave up on pursuing his Personal Legend
further lessons to think about
Dreams: Alchemist, dreams represent not only an outlet into one’s inner desires, but also a form of communication with the Soul of the World. Santiago’s dream of a treasure in Egypt, for instance, reveals to him his Personal Legend and sets the entire plot of the Alchemist into motion
Literary Style: The Alchemist is written in a simple prose that is heavy on the sensory details. It contains a lot of extremely quotable passages, which gives the book a “self-help” tone
