Senoufou BS: Coelho's 'Alchemist'-personal legend (9) RE: BS: Coelho's 'Alchemist'-personal legend 03 Nov 20

Yes! Yes! You clever lot! Thank you so much.
I think Mr Kristiadi says that one forms ambitions and ideas about the future during ones childhood. I certainly did. I'd line up my dolls and teddies and give them 'lessons', then pretend they were all mortally ill and 'nursed' them back to health. (Teacher or nurse in the making you see.)
I was interested in his examination of obstacles which get in the way of realising our 'personal legend'. Society has a lot of power and influence (particularly the 'media' nowadays) and it takes determination to continue to walk along the chosen path without being deflected. Criticism, derision, scorn, peer pressure etc.
Joe, this is such a fascinating subject.
