Facebook Debate on a Paulo Coelho Quote

By | September 10, 2009

“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dream.” – Paulo Coelho

I placed this quote on my facebook and got a response that someone disagreed with this quote.What do you believe?

This is what I wrote back:

When wanting to search or reach for your dream you will no doubt encounter obstacles and challenges. These will test you on how bad you really want it to be fulfilled. Most people suffer from the thought of failure without even giving it a fair shot. If they were to just knock down the fear, they would see the obstacles and challenges aren’t as bad they thought. Sure it could bring you down, but push along and open the next door! If it’s a dream you really want with all your heart you will fulfill it with enthusiasm. Even if it isn’t fulfilled, you would know you gave it your all and that itself is better than never knowing at all.

I’d love to hear some comments!

Have a FABULOUS day!

I completely agree! In keeping with that mentality, this is one of my favorite quotes:
“And the time came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” -Anais Nin
