"ITS CALLED THE PRINCIPLE OF FAVORABILITY, BEGINNER'S LUCK. BECAUSE LIFE WANTS YOU TO ACHIEVE YOUR PERSONAL LEGEND." (54)
beginners are the first to be helped. they are the first because life wants you to achieve your personal legend, before anything else. your life focuses you on this one major part of your story.
"In order to find the treasure, you will have to follow the omens God has prepared a path for everyone to follow" (32)
follow the omens, to find god, and once found he will show you in the right direction of your quest. they want you to trust yourself which by accomplishing that, the path to your quest will become cleared. in the story, the old man explains to Santiago, the principle of favor ability, and how if you follow your passion, the universe will guide you through your quest.
"He was going to miss the place and all the things he had learned." (65)
