Paulo Coelho, author of the novel “The Alchemist”, beautifully illustrated the power of believing in one’s dream and to be courageous enough to pursue it.
As bizarre as it can seem to be; whatever the human mind can dream of, it can certainly achieve and this is what “The Alchemist” proved to the world through the wonderful journey of a boy named Santiago, who despite the different number of obstacles encountered in his way, he never lost faith and kept following his dream. In short, the fable which truly is a recommended reading resource provides evidence that:
1. You can achieve anything you desire (dream), provided you believe in it and be courageous enough to pursue your dream.
2. None is achievable without belief, faith and courage to take actions.
Stuart Chase rightly quoted: “For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don’t believe, no proof is possible.”
Who cares about what people had to say about your dream, whether they mock or laugh at it? It’s YOUR dream and it is YOU who decide whether or not you are courageous enough to believe and pursue your dream as for the one who believes; no proof, no support, no encouragement is necessary to get started and pave your way through.
That winning attitude can change your life forever and that was wonderfully demonstrated by actor Will Smith (playing Chris Gardner) in his classic movie “The Pursuit of Happyness”, where he gives one of the most respected advice of our time to his son:
“Don’t ever let somebody tell you, you can’t do something, not even me! You got a dream, you got protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you, you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it. Period.”
If you want to become a successful writer, go get it. Period!
If you want to become a great doctor, go get it. Period!
If you want to be successful in your business, go get it. Period!
If you want to be in good health, go get it. Period!
If you want to achieve excellent results for your exams, go get it. Period!
Anything you want, just go get it! Period!
Believing in thy dreams and pursuing it with courage allows one to “live full”. Just do not abandon your dreams and die with loads of regrets, as correctly stated by one of the world’s leading motivational speaker, Les Brown: “Live full, Die Empty.”
Believe and protect your dream by pursuing it with courage. Just go get it. Period!
