Motivational Monday – Your Personal Legend

I’ve been reading another great book recently called, ‘The alchemist’ by Paulo Coelho. I strongly recommend it. It centres around the search for one’s personal legend – a spiritual journey to live for something greater than oneself.

Letting fear get in the way of what you want to pursue can often be one of life’s great internal battles. It’s definitely something I’ve been thinking about recently as I age and as life seems more and more serious. This book really summed it up well.

“People are afraid to pursue their most important dreams, because they feel that they don’t deserve them, or that they’ll be unable to achieve them…Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.” – p. 130, ‘The Alchemist’

What ever your personal legend may be, I hope you can discover and pursue it, and not let fear of failure stand in your way. I think ultimately your passion will always shine through.
