A boy named Santiago had flashes of him in Egypt, twice, during his sleep. He then realized that it was his destiny to travel to Egypt to find the treasure waiting for him. But the journey wasn’t an easy one.
He enjoyed his adventures but had to face a lot of challenges, difficulties, fear, heartbreaks, obstacles, and learned a lot of lessons along the way. This journey was written in such depth that I loved every page and felt every emotion. Awesome writing #magical
The story is awesome fellas, enjoyed it to the core. If you are in pursuit of your destiny, you will find his story quite relatable.
There are two key takeaways for me:
1. Never ignore omens.
2. You will never go through any difficult times if you are not ready for it. If you are going through it, it means you are capable. You just don’t realize this yet.
This takeaway hit me hard. I was going through hard times and it gave me the confidence that I can make it.
I genuinely loved how alchemists view true love. He said – Love never keeps you from pursuing your destiny. I also loved the women who motivated Santiago to go for it. We all should have a man/woman like that.
If you have never read a fiction book or any book for that matter, this story will make you fall in love with this genre and could make you a reader.
Alchemist is a great book to read if you are in pursuit of living your dreams. It can have a life-changing impact on you.
