Paulo Coelho is one of the best-selling authors of our time. You may have read his fascinating novel, The Alchemist. There is a distinct style in Coelho’s prose that makes him a master storyteller. Often, people confuse his books with self-help books. However, Coelho has never proclaimed that he writes self-help books. He does write books that can alter your life. His books are all about changing your perspective and bringing a new look into your life.

The best part is that his prose does not become all too preachy or pedantic. It is written in just the right way to hit all the right spots. Paulo Coelho has emerged as a brilliant writer who doesn’t want to be a bestseller but to change the lives around him and beyond. Here are some empowering quotes from the master:

  1. “The more violent the storm, the quicker it passes.”
  2. “Everybody has a creative potential and from the moment you can express this creative potential, you can start changing the world.”
  3. “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
  4. “You drown not by falling into a river, but by staying submerged in it.”
  5. “People want to change everything and, at the same time want it all to remain the same.”
  6. “You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.”
  7. “If you’re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.”
  8. “Nothing in the world is ever completely wrong. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.”
  9. “I have seen many storms in my life. Most storms have caught me by surprise, so I had to learn very quickly to look further and understand that I am not capable of controlling the weather, to exercise the art of patience and to respect the fury of nature.”
  10. “Waiting hurts. Forgetting hurts. But not knowing which decision to take can sometimes be the most painful.”
  11. “If you start by promising what you don’t even have yet, you’ll lose your desire to work towards getting it.”
  12. “One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now.”
  13. “If you want to be successful, you must respect one rule – Never lie to yourself.”
  14. “Don’t waste your time with explanations, people only hear what they want to hear.”
  15. “Talent is a universal gift, but it takes a lot of courage to use it. Don’t be afraid to be the best.”
  16. “The world is changed by your example, not by your opinion.”
  17. “The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.”
  18. “People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.”
  19. “Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.”
  20. “The secret is here in the present. If you pay attention to the present, you can improve upon it. And, if you improve on the present, what comes later will also be better.”
  21. “Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.”
  22. “We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal.”
  23. “You are what you believe yourself to be.”

  1. Excellent. I also recommend Esther and Jerry Hicks’ books: The Law of Attraction. We are powerful but have been told otherwise, by single-energy male religions who deny the God/dess within to worship a brother, not savior, an individual who has demonstrated what they do not yet understood by most. An individual, who cannot do for them what they seek but must learn to do for themselves; for self-mastery is what we are here in school to learn.

    By the way America means the I AM Race (an anagram), not because we are special but because we have within our borders all races and religions of unique individuals (both male and female). And we have been given a powerful gift – a governmental Constitution of check and balances where no one agency has absolute control. A limitation of the power of government to assure individual responsibility of its citizens. Our Constitution and Bill of Rights was God/dess inspired, only a fool would say no to that gift.
