LIFE COACH SERIES
YOUR LIFE PURPOSE
Based on the book: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.
This summary of main messages in The Alchemist is part
of our quick read, inspirational review series in our
Life Coaching Program.
Alchemy is about penetrating to the Soul of the World,
and discovering the treasure that has been reserved
for you, Your Personal Legend.
The Greatest Lie
The Alchemist helps debunk the ” worlds greatest
lie” - That at a certain point in our
lives, we lose control of what is happening to us, and
our lives become controlled by fate.
The One Great Truth
When we were young, we knew your life purpose, because
at a young age we are not afraid to dream. From childhood,
mysterious forces come into play to show you how to
achieve your Personal Legend by preparing your spirit
and your will. It reveals the "one great truth"
; whoever you are or whatever you want to do,
when you really want something, it is because that desire
originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your
mission on earth.
Omens are Conspiracies Sent to Help You
When you want something, all the forces of the Universe
conspire to help you achieve it. Omens will appear as
solutions to problems, opportunities, information etc.
We need to learn to recognise omens and follow them.
Everything in life is an omen, there is a universal
language that connects all to one. We must continue
to focus on where we want to travel, not where we are
heading at the moment. If we concentrate on the moment,
we will stay at that point, we can only hope to achieve
the path we choose if we keep our focus on it.
Often our enthusiasm at the start of a journey, concentrates
such force that we attract things that assist us on
our way – ‘beginners luck’. As we
travel the path toward our Personal Legend, we encounter
more tests of persistence and courage. If we push forward
impulsively we may fail to see the omens that will guide
us directly to our Personal Legend.
The Universe places the omens along our paths to act
as guideposts for us to follow. Be patient and follow
them. That is the quickest and the most correct route.
The things one learns along the correct path, will assist
in recognising the value of the Personal Legend.
Courage is the most essential element. Life attracts
Life – if you generate activity, other activity
will follow, in line and supporting your Quest. Everything
one needs to know is learnt through action.
Keep listening to your heart through all emotions,
love, despair, passion. When the heart is afraid, and
tells you not to go on, it is telling you, you are afraid
you may lose everything you have, in pursuit for what
you might have in the future.
If you do not go on, however, your heart will never
be quiet – it will lead you down a path of unawareness,
of not wanting to see the omens, and eventually you
will not see the omens and never find your treasure,
Your Personal Legend.
People are afraid to pursue their hearts dreams as
they fear they do not deserve them or will not achieve
them. The heart is often afraid of suffering, BUT the
fear of suffering is always worse than the suffering
Define and Follow Your Path
Very few people follow their dreams, their Personal
Legends; instead they let life just happen around them,
in its own direction, to its own fate. If one sees the
world as a threatening place, then so it will be. Only
the pursuit of a dream can lead to happiness.
Ask the heart to tell you when you are wandering too
far from the path of your dreams. Listen to it. Only
your heart and the omens can lead you to your treasure.
Overcome Difficulties on the Path
Before a dream is realised, the Soul of the World tests
everything that was learned along the way: It does so
not to make us suffer but to master the lessons we have
learned on the path to our dreams. It is at this point
that most people give up. Every search begins with beginners
luck and ends with the victors being severely tested.
“the darkest hour of the night comes just before
Remember that is something comes along that slows your
path, it is for good reason. It is saving you from a
fate, should you had proceeded or teaching you a lesson
you will need to proceed.
When you possess great treasures within you, others
will seldom believe you. Anyone who interferes with
the Personal Legend of another will never find their
There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible
to achieve – fear of failure.
Your eyes show the strength of your soul. Where your
treasure is, there also will be your heart.
