It’s the stuff of legend and has been used by two of my favourite authors, Paulo Coelho and J.K. Rowling in two of their iconic books.
But is an alchemist just a work of fiction?
What about the person who has the ability to turn the negative mood of a group into a positive one?
What about the person who is able to identify and bring out the latent potential in others?
What about the person who has the ability to see opportunities where everyone else only sees problems?
What about the person who takes an idea and turns it into a money-making venture?
What about the person who sees beauty in a metaphorical lump of clay or blank canvas and makes it appear?
What about the person who can bring hope and joy into the lives of those who have given up on life?
What about you?
Are you an alchemist?
If you can take something that’s common and ordinary and turn it into something of value, then yes, you are.
And if you’re wondering, yes, you can!
