"People learn, early in their lives what is there reason for being. (pg.24)
This quote is telling us as the readers that there is a specific destiny out there for everyone. There will come a time for everyone once in their life when they will figure out their reason for being. This helps others and myself because If you look hard enough that reason will become clear to you, so not to worry if you don't know what your purpose for living is because the world will always make sure sometime in your early life that you will figure it out. I know this because my cousin christian has always wanted to join the military and he has been stationed in Bahrain for almost two years now living out his reason for being.
"Because life wants you to achieve your personal legend.” Pg54
In life there is a reason for being for everyone. Life will help you find it and lead you to it if you really want it. This quote is helpful to me because its simple and to the point. It helps me realize that I shouldn't stress out because life wants me to find my way and it will eventually lead me to finding my purpose.
“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
This quote is saying that you can achieve anything you want as long as you don't let fear get in the way because that is the one thing that can destroy your dream. If all you do is think about the bad things when your trying to live out your dream, like what could go wrong, then you'll be so focused on the bad other then your dream that it will cause you to stop achieving it. This is relatable for me because anything I've wanted, from the simple things like scoring a goal in a soccer game to the hard things like getting an A+ on a project anytime i focused on the things that could go wrong it made it so much harder to complete that task and make that dream happen.
“We make a lot of detours, but were always heading in the right destination.”
When on your way to your personal legend or completing a dream it may be common to go off and make a couple stops along the way you shouldn't stress about it because you will always end up going where you need to be. This is relatable in real life to me when it comes to homework. Homework can get really hard to stay on task for sometimes so I make a lot of stops and do things on the side but I always end up going back to it and getting it done.
“Don't give in to your fears. If you do, you won't be able to talk to your heart.”
This has to do with the idea of your heart knowing whats best. Talking to your heart lets you know what you really want in life and helps you find out your personal legend. If let your fears consume your thoughts then it will eventually consume your heart which will cause your heart to be incapable of telling you what you want. My dad has told me multiple times that he let fear stop him. For football the fear of making the wrong pass or not making a tackle caused him to think more about the bad even though his heart was telling him he wanted to just go out there and play.
“…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."
When you really want something it becomes your purpose or mission. This quote is saying if you really want to do this you will make it your number one priority, give it your all, and never stop until you succeed. This is relatable because when I was little all I wanted to do was be good at soccer so I practiced for years and years and made it my number one dream so it ended up coming true.
