Quote of the Day

Paulo Coelho

A warrior of light does not treat defeat as if it were a matter of indifference to him, saying things like ‘Oh, it doesn’t matter’ or ‘To be honest, I didn’t really want it that much’, He accepts defeat as defeat and does not try to make a victory out of it.
(Manual of the Warrior of Light)

Today’s Question by the reader : Pilar

Which are the most inspiring things for you?

After my Pilgrimage to Saint James, I realized the most extraordinary things are to be found in people. This is my source of inspiration.

Your Personal Legend : 26th of May 2009

A personal legend is the path we decide to take that fills our heart with enthusiasm. It is the path of our dreams.

Last week this idea was given and so I would like for you to share your Personal Legend with us.

Love,
Paulo

Today’s Question by the reader : Regina

How does a person manage to win battles, specially deception?

The secret of life consists in falling seven times and getting up eight.

UFO’s

I have here Wired magazine and it’s written “itALIENS” – but if you remove “it” at the end of the day they mean “Aliens”.

So, do you believe in Aliens?

In my opinion there is life outside of this world – probably there are millions of planets that can generate life.

People though usually think about aliens that can save or destroy this world. This is totally irrelevant – but I would like to know if you already had an experience with Aliens. I personally had, more than once, and the most recent one with UFO’s was in the Mojave Desert.

So I want to hear from you if you had an experience which involved UFO’s or if simply you believe in extraterrestrial life.

If you use twitter, I invite you to tweet about it using #paulocoelho.

Changes in the Blog

Last week, as you know, I posted a video asking readers to give their opinions about the blog and my team and I are developing new features in order to address some of the excellent proposals. As a first step, we will implement the following:

1. A Personal Legend section in which people will be able to present their personal legends

2. A search window in the top of sidebar – to help the navigating system

3. Monthly workshops in which we will discuss my books. Starting next week until the 30th June, I will conduct a discussion on my new book The Winner Stands Alone. In July, we will discuss The Witch of Portobello

4. Your story in Blog : where readers are invited to send short stories (maximum of 250 words) to [email protected]

Love
Paulo

Your Story in my Blog

Dear Readers and Friends,

I thought the suggestions sent to me last week were very constructive and I specially liked the idea of posting here your creations. I will be opening this week a new space here in the blog for stories and therefore please start sending your tales and stories to the following address : [email protected]. They will be selected and posted here in the blog.

I would like to settle only one condition though: that your tales have, at most, 250 words. I ask this because I am a firm believer of synthesis and also think this is the best format for the internet.

Love,
Paulo
