A Shepherd named Santiago travels from his home in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of a treasure During his travels. He meets a gypsy woman, a king and an alchemist who help him along the way Nobody knows what the treasure is But throughout Santiago's journey he learns to listen to his heart Before I share with you the great lessons I took away from this book be sure to check out the video review by Ella Syrtis.  

Lesson 1- Recognize the good things Gerry works a 9 to 5 job for an advertising firm he drags himself out of bed and brushes his teeth Waddles onto the train Begins his Monday checking emails gets yelled at his boss Has some lunch at the canteen gets yelled at again by a client? Spends the last hour staring at the clock and then finally heads home feeling drained Sounds like a dull day, right? Well Gerry failed to see the old man that gave up his seat for him on the train He failed to see the email from his boss thanking him for his efforts And he failed to see the friendly smile that a stranger gave him on his way home.

When each day is the same as the next it's because people fail [to] recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises lesson to Live in the Present If You can concentrate always on the present you'll be a happy person Life will be a party for you a grand festival because life is a moment. We're [living] now Think about this your past was the present and the future becomes a present So the present is the only moment in which you can live your life So make the most of it stop mulling over the past and worrying about the future This is not to say that you can't learn from your mistakes in the past or plan for the future.

But remember to be fully conscious each day lesson three Life is interesting when you have a dream Maybe Jerry felt each day was dull because he didn't have a dream He settled for what he had and didn't have a dream to fulfill. Maybe we should all have a dream When I was 13 years old I had a dream to [become] the junior world, unicycle Champion I Practiced almost every day and always had something to look forward to it made life interesting for me.

I went to my first [unicycling] competition on the other side of the country where I entered my first competition made new friends and found a whole new world filled with excitement and opportunity Over a year later. I travelled to New Zealand for the world unicycling championships and became the Junior world, unicycle Champion. I'm Now 20 years old and I have new dreams dreams to run my own online Passion based business so I can serve people from anywhere in the world at any time if you don't know what your dream is Try something new but whatever you do never stop dreaming.

Lesson 4 everyone Learns differently Picture this Jerry and I want to learn to play chess We attend a chess event where we learn to play chess within a small group Everyone helps each other out by asking and answering questions by the end of it Jerry can play very well But I can't so I get frustrated Why did Jerry pick it up so well and I didn't? Well the answer is because everyone learns differently Jerry has a social and verbal learning style meaning. He likes social settings where he can talk to others who are learning as well. I? On the other hand have a solitary and visual learning style. 

Lesson five become better than you are when we strive to become better than we are everything around us becomes better. Gerry is angry all the time People don't like being around angry people he recognizes this and makes an effort to control his anger as He becomes less and less angry he finds that people are more friendly toward him. His are another example? James is an entrepreneur, and is working on increasing his income from 5k to 10k a month to do this he attends personal development seminars and makes an effort to help more people grow their businesses as A result the people around him see him grow and become inspired by him.

So naturally these people gravitate towards James and soon. He is surrounded with more customers friends Happy Vibes and a higher income The last lesson that I'm about to share [with] you is perhaps the core message in the [alchemists] Follow your heart Wherever your heart. Is there you will [find] your treasure you will never be able to escape from your heart, so it's better to listen to what it has to say I'll Now leave you with Paul core lows most famous quote [from] the book When you want something all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it Thank you for watching everyone if you enjoyed the video feel free to leave a comment below I read every comment, and I appreciate you sharing your thoughts you.
