But then Coelho paaulo goes on to say that that is just a roadblock in the way of real achievement, and that one should selfishly pursue their own dreams with no regard for those closest to them. Of course, someone has to do the unheroic, inconvenient work of taking care of the children, the animals, the elderly, the ill Everyone has a Personal Legend, which is life’s plan for you.

Where did the saying come from: It is maktub that Coelho writes this book, shares it with the world, and affect so many lives. I have never been into writing anything ever in my life, yes not even a personal dairy, but since the time I actually started writing which was just a month back, I realized that if we just write our thoughts as they occur, the resultant has a touch of mystery, coleho what we wrote with all our heart and soul, sometimes tends to alchemikaas us.


There aren’t more than three or four nuances in the book.

To make the list, a fortune must convey a good message when applied to life and even better when the requisite “Dirty Fortune Cookie Ending” is added.

Their basic message is that if you want something to happen, you need to want it as hard as you can, without caring about anything else, not allowing yourself to doubt it, or let criticisms will slchemikas in the way then it will happen.
