Today I am attending a book review with some ladies from a network called, Full Circle Wellness Solutions. And I wanted to share my own key lessons, before I hear from my sister friends because we all interpret things differently.
Here’s my thoughts
The Alchemist is a very short novel about Santiago, a young shepherd boy, who longs to follow his dream in search of treasures but encounters many challenges, life lessons and interesting people along the way.
In my opinion, we really see him transform from boy to man by the end of the story but the author makes no mention of this. See below what I noted from the author.
KEY THINGS I NOTED
Personal legend is what you want to accomplish in life and this was mentioned a lot through out the book.
Do you know what that looks like?
CLICK HERE IT MIGHT HELP YOU
Everything in life has a price – Santiago found that out through all the trials and tribulations he encountered.
When you really want something the universe conspires to help you achieve it – Santiago met several people that showed up in his life for a purpose.
Everything in life is an omen – meaning a sign to point you in the right direction to your dreams which Santiago eventually discovered.
If you focus always on the present you will be happy and content. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a dream but enjoy where you are right now.
Santiago was advised by the alchemist and eventually started to enjoy each moment. I plan to do so today at the book review hangout.
The language that everyone understands in their heart, is love. That’s why when there’s a conflict, it is often love that brings you back.

A GOOD WAY TO LEARN IS THROUGH ACTION
I think my teens are learning this from their internship about what they enjoy and what they dont.
Everything that happens once will never happen again, if you have learned the lesson but everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time.
Listen to your heart but rule your life with your head.
HAPPINESS IS FROM GOD. He is always within us
Before a dream is realised the ”soul of the world” will test everything you learn along the way (Deep Thoughts).
When you possess great treasures within you and try to tell others, they rarely believe you (Keep quiet). Classic example Joseph
When we love, we always strive to be better than we are (Real Talk). Love more
We all possess the same universal language – oneness
Conclusion from the Alchemist
1. Have a dream/purpose
2. Failing is part of the process
3. Don’t give up
