I think one important message is following your dreams to find your own personal legend. A personal legend is sort of a hero's quest. The Personal Legend is something which a person truly desires with all of his/her heart. The novel suggests that the only thing that is important in life is to pursue this dream at whatever cost. Often this means avoiding things which are not conducive to achieving this dream. In the case of Santiago, this means leaving his familial home. It also means that any love which he experiences must not get in the way of his Personal Legend. THis is very much a theme question. You can explore more at the link below,
