Today’s Question by the reader : Ghaida

Author: Paulo Coelho

Dear Mr. Paulo Coelho,

How were you dealing with the times that you strongly wanted to follow a dream, but in the same time, you have to deal with a more important priority, like education, work or family? How can you tame that wild child inside that needs to be pleased?

Dear Ghaida,

I’m afraid I can’t really help you with this question because I never refused the “wild child” within.
Those who truly love you will encourage you to follow your dream and let this tremendous amount of enthusiasm and energy manifest itself.
