1. We must all find our purpose/Personal Legend in life. No one can do that for us. We'll find help but it is for us to make that decision.
2. In the process, we learn many things and grow through life. We'll discover that each and everyone of us carry within us a unique power as we take lessons from everything. Of course the journey is never a piece of cake. But, at a point, we'll find out that which we seek is right where we started We must return to embrace it and learn to live life to the fullest.
The Alchemist is an interesting book. Highly recommended.
