There are millions of Books but none like The Alchemist. This is a masterpiece in FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS tale. This is the story of a boy who followed his dreams. You can understand everything about the Universe, Dreams, and Life in this one epic adventure.
If you want to read one and only one book, then I would recommend this one only.
Two of the most powerful quotes from the book:
There is ONE GREAT TRUTH on this planet:
Whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you want something, it is because that desire originated in the soul of the Universe. It is your mission on earth.
To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only real obligation. All things are one. When you want something; all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
This book changed my life when I was just 17 and having the worst point of life. After that, I read few hundred books in motivational/inspirational/personal development/self-help genre and found tons of them super awesome. But this on is at the top.
The Alchemist is so powerful, every year I read this book at least once and with every reading it offers me some more wisdom about my dreams, my journey and the Universe we live in.
Also, every year I gift at least 10 copies of this book to people who are going through a difficult stage in their life. And I have seen everyone’s life changing.
