The Path in life you have been called to walk
This quote make you think how you would like to fallow your path, if do what you think is your path or do what you really want to be or what you had try to do in your path. The quote makes you see that you don’t have to do what other people tell you and do what you really want to do and what you had try your best to do and if you want to walk alone you path. The difference between following you own path and thinking that your path is the only one to follow, is that it becomes from you what you want to do and if you want to walk by yourself and try your best not what other people tell you to do.

I think this is a very encouraging quote because most people don't even know where to go. The difference between choosing a path and having one to follow is that you should be able to choose where your heart chooses for you.

This quote is very true but also very hard to follow or do.
Why? Because if your parents want you to do something you don’t want to it’s very difficult.
Last year I’ve read this story I forgot what it was called but it was about a Chinese girl who wanted to be a star but her mom forced her to be a piano player I think you know of this story
The main difference is if you really want to do something do it don’t let anyone hold you back that doesn’t mean don’t listen to your parents ask them for some advice.

“It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path.”
I will say it true because people tell you sometimes what path we should take and they tell you that is the right way.
What is the difference between following your own path and thinking that your path is the only one to fallow? Well, there is a big difference, because if you want to become a writer it’s more about studying classic English and if your family would like you to be a engineer you have to study math and other things to become a engineer. But at the end we have to choose a career that we would love to wake up in the morning and to go to the job we’ve chosen and have a certificate of what we have chosen

Paulo Coelho was born in 1947 in Rio de Janeiro as the son of Pedro a engineer and Lygia his mother. At the age of seven he entered a school in Reo de Janeiro. Paulo came to detest the obligatory nature of religious practice. Although he hated praying and going to mass, he had compensations. In school Paulo discovered his true vocation to be a writer. He won his first literary prize in school poetry and his sister Sonia won an essay prize by entering something that Paulo had thrown away. Paulo's second book The Architect had sold more than 64 million copy's and had been translated in 70 different languages.

Happiness is something everybody has but just needs to find and experiment with it. If you always sad and gloomy you need to find something that makes you happy. How do you find happiness? Many of us ask. Well you have to experiment. Try out new things that are fun. Then pick out the funniest and happiest one and do it again. That's what happiness is and how you find it.

My fist obstacle in my life is that I always mess up every time I try to do something good I mess up. Like for example; when I help my dad with something I most of the time messed up. My second obstacle in life is I’m shy in front of people know. Why? Because I know I’ll see them again and if I mess up it will be very embarrassing. Third obstacle is kind of like what the author said I think to myself I want to be this big thing but the doubt starts to kick in and then you get these thoughts that that will never happen. Last but not least love you never want to break some ones heart so you try to be nice but you don’t want to be part of their life any more.

Narcissus
The legend was about a handsome man who somehow fell in love with his own beauty. He sat every day looking at a lake. Not to see the lake but to see is own refection. This is a story the alchemist fund in a tavern. He read it and said what a good story. Both the lake and the man loved the man. The man loved himself. The lake loves the man. The lake even wept. I think the authors message was to say that he loved himself so much that he had to pay the consequent.

The Narcissus legend is of a boy who drowned in a pond/lake and a flower appeared on that same spot he drowned called a Narcissus. Narcissus and the lake represent beauty.
