According to The Alchemist, “it's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” I am obsessed with pursuing my dreams and helping others realize their goals and dreams. I refuse to believe in the worlds greatest lie "that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate."
Instead, I believe that “When you really want something to happen, the whole world conspires to help you achieve it.” Like Cohelo, I believe the secret to life is “here in the present. If you pay attention to the present, you can improve upon it. And, if you improve on the present, what comes later will also be better."
“Most people see the world as a threatening place, and, because they do, the world turns out, indeed, to be a threatening place.” “I'm an adventurer, looking for treasure” and I know that “Only those who find life, find treasures.” “I must have no fear of failure. It was my fear of failure that first kept me from attempting the Master Work.” Today I know that "dreams are the language of God." And if I am to believe in God, Then I must also believe in my dreams!
