Another great book I read when I was starting out in my career was a The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

It’s such a simple yet enchanting book on following your dreams. The story follows the journey of a young shepherd boy called Santiago who comes across a gypsy that tells him there is treasure in the Pyramids in Egypt.

He sets out to Egypt to find his treasure where her meets many interesting characters that all play a part in his trek to the Pyramids. This includes his encounter with a beautiful Arabian woman that he falls in love with…..aghhhhhh bless….

One of the most famous quotes of the book is when Santiago comes across an old king and introduces him to the idea of a Personal Legend which “is what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is”. He adds that “when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”. This is the core theme of the book.

A highly recommended book from us here at #AsianWomenMeanBiz
