Why is it that the more we want something, the more it become elusive?

The more we pray that it will happen, the more we have to wait?

In Paolo Coelho’s book, The Alchemist, he speaks about conquering our deepest desires and he pondered that “the universe will conspire to make it happen.” He also pointed out that the deeper we want our dreams realized, the harder the trials we must face. Kind of like a test if we are worthy of that claim.

Those who had given up easily or those who withdrew the battle early on will suffer the most failure…

In retrospect, his writing may proved true. Those people who have gambled most of their lives in search for their dreams will ultimately reap the greatest triumph. They are those who went outside their comfort zones, suffered loneliness and personal battles and rise up to succeed.

Now then...what are you willing to give up just to materialize your dream?

why does it become more elusive? probably to give time for the child to grow while in pursuit of his dream and be a mature man upon attaining it.

as with santiago, he ended up where he actually started only he was now a man fortified by the years.

Thanks for the comment jef :)

Now, what would i give up for my aspirations...

haha a tough one bro, but it will always fall down to the question on what drives you...

and itll always root to these two factors, Love? or Fear?

True right? Fear hinders us to pursue what we like, but love drives a fool even to cliffs just to get what he loves :)

Luke 9:23
Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
