“One’s Personal Legend is what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is.
-Paul Coelho, The Alchemist.
As I’ve chased my ambitions to the ends of the earth (while working from my laptop), I’ve realized that every time I accomplish what I want, I want something else.
But I don’t leave empty-handed. I learn so much about myself and realize that I simply need to “focus the camera” a little more to catch a better glimpse of what I’m ACTUALLY aiming for. Make sense?
From freelancing to blogging to filmmaking I’ve realized lots of things about myself. I believe with every evolution I undergo I’m getting closer and closer to my own personal legend.
Maybe I’ll never quite realize it, but at least I got close to it — and sadly that’s something a lot of people fail to do.
Here’s a little more from The Alchemist that defines a “Personal Legend” further..
“At that point in their lives (youth), everything is clear and everything is possible. They are not afraid to dream, and to yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives. But, as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to realize their Personal Legend.
Whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your mission on earth.” I’ve laid the ground work. What we want is not a destination.
What we want isn’t even THE destination in the first place. Getting closer to our personal legend (purpose) is.
