Read full description of the books A Warrior's Life: A Biography of Paulo Coelho. by Fernando Morais:Here comes my all time favorite Author, my real life mentor. Paulo is the man behind my life's uplift and enrichment, his ideas have largely and greatly nourished and conditioned my thought process. I have possibly read all his books, started with 'The Alchemist' which propelled me to take my life's biggest and most important decision with vigor and discretion. I embraced the basic principle of life that 'where is your treasure, there is your heart'. Yeah, this Man was behind and most instrumental in my search to seek the truth and follow my heart. After the dark was over, I soon started living a life with zeal, zest and passion. I did what my soul really wanted to do. I started following my dreams and living my desires.
After 'The Alchemist', followed 'The Brida'. 'The Brida' is the fable of a girl. We often tend to feel a strange connection with this book. At some point of time, we all are perplexed as what to chose among the two options? Whom to settle for - Our heart or our Mind. Though, the choice has always been difficult, it is circumspect and wise to listen to your mind. Wise up and be practical.
From 'Veronika decides to die' I learned and practiced that Life is just not about making choices, life is all about control. Often, we are tempted to do some deeds which could be unethical and sinful, then life is all about making the right choice !! Yeah, I did.
From each of his fables, I have always picked some lesson. I learned how to pluck courage in life to assert on the points and principles you believe in.
With so many lessons and good sayings swaying my mind, I have had a very high opinion about this Man, a demigod to me. But, I was appalled and shocked to read that Paulo was a mind sick, demented and brainless nut in his youth. He was an impostor and fraudster. A big time liar and a jerk. And the worst, a junkie who used to smoke cannabis and cocaine. We tend to have the image of our mentors as somebody who is just the picture of idealism and perfection. But, as they say the night is the darkest just before the dawn. Paulo went through a series of ruts and potholes but eventually climbed out of them and emerged out as a winner. After all, A winner stands alone and is distinct !!!
