A theme in this story regards listening to one's heart to follow a dream. There are a hundred "rational " reasons for Santiago not to listen to his heart but dreams can only be accomplished by taking risks. Santiago's dream of the treasure provides him with a goal; Santiago resolves to find the treasure, and by his decision to pursue this goal he is able to realize his Personal Legend.
