Transformation plays into the journey that Santiago take as he tries to find his "personal legend." Such a journey is transformative; it changes the nature of the person pursuing it because that person must give up whatever is necessary along the way to achieve what needs to be achieved Postponing such a journey only causes pain and ultimate suffering, but finding the legend means that a change (a transformation) has taken place.
