Provocations and Destiny

The following is a delightful excerpt from Warrior of the Light, by Paulo Coelho.

The Warrior of the Light… Knows what he is capable of; he does not have to go about the world boasting of his qualities and virtues. Nevertheless, there is always someone who wants to prove himself better than he is.

… Certain people insist. They provoke and offended do everything they can to irritate him. At that point, his heart says: “do not respond to these insults, they will not increase your abilities. You will tire yourself needlessly.”

A Warrior of the Light does not waste his time listening to provocations; he has a destiny to fulfill.

Warrior of the Light is a great little book, and easy read: short notes on accepting failure, embracing life, and rising through destiny.

Have a great week!
