It is so good to know the secrets of life. Why we lose things and how failure becomes the first step to get success. There are so many things that are hidden from us but actually, the things are not hidden they are inside us. The thing that matters the most is to know the real treasure inside us. After coming from the office I made a habit to read the book before going to bed. I read a lot many books and improved my skills too.

One day, I was tired and exhausted from the work in the office. It was a hectic day and I was trying to run away from the things. I talk to one of my friends to release my effort. While talking to her she started her story. She wants to crack SSC exam but because of her married life, she is not able to concentrate on her studies.

She lives in a joint family where she needs to do all the household work and look after her in-laws. Though everyone is cooperative still she couldn’t find time to study the amount that she needs to give to studies. While talking to her I thought everyone has some or the other problem. Some are struggling for their career and some want to get rid of the pressure of work.

The Alchemist

As usual, while going to bed, I read a book. This time the book that I read was “The Alchemist” the book written by Paulo Coelho. When I read it I found that the book like the alchemist should be read by each and every person. In this book, there is a young and adventurous shepherd named Santiago. He has the dream every time to seek treasure at the foot of Egyptian pyramids.

Surprisingly, he consulted a gypsy woman and she advised him to go to pyramids. And from there he starts his journey. In the midway he was even robbed still he continued to go. He worked in the crystal shop with a merchant where the merchant teaches him several lessons and even Santiago encourages the merchant to take some risks with his business.

And Santiago earned a huge amount from the shop and he continues pursuing his dream that is to find treasure at the pyramids. He joins the caravan crossing the Sahara Desert and meets an Englishman who is studying to become an alchemist.
