Words for Thought: Personal Legend

by Rachel Baker on September 29, 2009

Today’s Word for Thought comes from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.  I really liked this quote when I read the book a few months ago and when I came across it again today, it was a nice little reminder that we should try to remember what it was that we always dreamed of doing and just go out and do it.  

“Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is.  At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible.  They are not afraid to dream, and 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 is impossible for them to realize their Personal Legend.”

…just something to think about.
