Today’s Question by the reader : Phil Condra

Author: Paulo Coelho

What is your definition of “Personal Legend”? Why is it so important to recognize?

Dear Phil, The personal legend is your distinctive path in this world. It is dictated by your own standards – not the ones society or family imposes to you.

It is in a way your destiny but with this subtlety: you choose to realize your goal in life. it is not something that is independent of your will.

The importance of this, for me at least, is obvious: you live your life according to your own rules and walk your path with enthusiasm.
