Everybody always has dreams in their own life, some dreams are achievable and some are not. People without self-confidence are always scared of chasing dreams because failure is like nightmare in their minds. Nevertheless, those people will never know what did they give up, their crystalline dreams. On the other hand, people with enthusiasm always chase their dream without reasons because they will feel regret if they didn’t try; they may be successful however when they try to challenge themselves. Thus, it is important for people to chase their dreams, challenge themselves and achieve their goals.
I also learned that I must never love someone whom I love more that loves me. I must choose someone who love me more because that small feeling can be expounded and it is up to my mindset if I will be happy or not. I also learned that I must never trust someone who lies. Because if he lies to me with simple things, how much more on bigger things that involve our future family. To love someone is my choice, and it is up to me on who I choose to love.
Although history had hard times we are sure not to ever repeat our mistakes because repeating mistakes lead to the same disaster. You have to figure out what you did wrong and then fix that wrong to make it right. Japanese-Americans and Americans had hard times but everyone got through it because they had a life for a reason and were determined they would make it out alive. Repeating history is easy but not repeating it is harder and in order to feel like we are alive we need to know what pain is but never the same thing. Easy things aren’t worth doing, but hard things are because you did something that you thought you could never
Being terrified is the thing that keeps hope out of our lives. It is important to not be scared because if we are, then we will have no hope in winning and we will not win. If we just believe that we can win and not give up then we will have our victory. We could also get someone to come and help out in the war. Many people don’t want to work because they are too sick.
For instance, the Crystal merchant states that, ‘‘Because I know the things I should be able to accomplish, and I don't want to do so,’’ which further provokes the idea of cowardness amongst himself. The old merchant is too afraid too loose the things he already has then to pursue his personal legend, which then leads to a dramatic impact on his life becoming extremely ordinary and simple. The old king's situation is an extremely important reminder for Santiago in terms of him pursuing his own personal legend. He serves as a warning to him, that those that are too scared to pursue their personal legend face major
Suffering “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. Their hearts become fearful just thinking of the loved ones who go away forever, or of moments that could have been good but weren’t, or of treasures that might have been found but were forever hidden in the sands. Because, when these things happen, we suffer terribly.” (Stated the Alchemist) “My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer” the boy told the alchemist. “Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than 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.’ (Page 124) “Why don’t people’s hearts tell them to continue to follow their dreams?’ the boy asked the alchemist.
Luckily it ended because once I saw reality, I felt insane for wanting the spend the rest of my life with him. The love for a couple should be pure, trusting, selfless, and should take time to build into a strong foundation. I’ve personally seen many relationships fail in my life and most of the time it’s because they were lacking on one of those aspects listed above. That was one big factor that lacked in my own personal relationship, there was no trust. Having no trust causes a toxic and controlling relationship to occur.
But eventually it will subside and something else will take its place… At the end of pain is success.” Most people don’t achieve success because they don’t rise over their challenges. That challenge may be a traumatic event, geographical surroundings, or a physical disability. But it is up to each individual to rise above their pain and achieve greatness. Everyone faces their own challenges in life. The same thing can happen to two different people, one will use it as an excuse saying “I cant… because…” while the other will say “I will… because…” The common denominator between all success stories is that they didn’t quit in the face of adversity and uncertainty.
In the book, The Alchemist, there are many major themes but the one that I took from it and could relate to was “fear is a bigger obstacle than the obstacle itself.” Throughout the story, Santiago goes through many challenges that he is afraid of that when he finally does them he discovers that they were much easier than anticipated. Santiago feared the thought of failure, leaving his home to find his treasure, leaving the crystal shop to fulfill his destiny, and to tell the chief he can turn into the wind. I, like Santiago, have had times in my life where I feared doing things and the greater obstacle was my fear and overthinking than the activity itself. The instances I chose from my own life to relate to Santiago were; when I do a new flip on snow, the first time I flew on a plane by myself, the first time I went surfing, and self-advocating by talking to
