Ola Olusoga (Co-fondateur/Populum)

Il y a eu un moment où j'étais en quête de découverte de soi. Je me sentais perdu et je ne savais pas si j'étais qui j'étais parce que j'avais pris la décision d'être moi-même, ou si mon identité était programmée par la culture, la société et le milieu. À cause de cela, j'ai commencé à lire des livres d'auto-assistance pour reconstruire mon identité et façonner qui je voulais être. Ce livre m'a aidé.

Joël Gascoigne (Co-fondateur/Tampon)

Reading The Alchemist the first time was a very liberating experience for me. It helped me to dream big and keep following my gut, and not settle - which is what the story, about a shepherd boy named Santiago, is all about. It's a simple and short book and has stook in my mind ever since I read it.

The Alchemist conveys a powerful idea: that the world will help you if you just choose to follow your dream, that often times our upbringing and environment lead us to believe dreams are impossible to realize, and that it won't be a smooth journey and that is fine.

Mike Benkovitch (Fondateur/Anatomie)

Lastly, honourable mention for The Alchemist. Because sometimes what you're searching for is under your nose the whole time ;)

Henri Médine (Co-fondateur/Space Jam Data)

Je privilégie l'éventail et la diversité. Ainsi, je recommande aux lecteurs de s'exposer à autant de sujets différents que possible. J'ai généralement 2 à 4 livres auxquels je me réfère à un moment donné. Ils abordent des sujets allant de la gestion, de l'art, de la spiritualité et de la philosophie. J'essaie de faire avancer l'ingénierie, mais je n'ai pas vraiment l'esprit scientifique.

Mehdi Kajbaf (Co-fondateur/Matboard et plus)

Je pense que chaque cheminement de carrière commence par une compréhension de qui vous êtes et de ce qui compte pour vous. Dans cette optique, je proposerai quelques livres de découverte de soi. Et bien sûr quelques bons livres d'affaires.

Seth Louey (Co-fondateur et PDG/BotList)

A non-business book that I always read at least once every few years is “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho. It’s truly helped me to become a better person mentally and spiritually.

Stephen Lew (Directeur/L'École de psychologie positive)

"The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho is my all time favourite and followed by "Man in Search of Meaning” by Viktor Frankl. The Alchemist speaks of a fable, built on the metaphorical pillars representing life's challenges, particularly on a boy’s narrative of his journey of life. The story is fuelled with lessons of passion, trials of fear and uncertainties, courage, and in many aspects, illustrates the need of driving one’s capacity towards fulfilling their passion and calling.

The transformational process of the protagonist brings upon parallel insights to my personal development, sometimes serving as a philosophical archetype. I especially dig the author’s term, ”warrior of the light”. This is stuck in my psyche, and I think that everyone can choose to become a “warrior of light” or learn to unlearn from being a “victim of darkness”.

Sarissa Rodriguez-Schwartz (Founder & Managing Director/SJS Group)

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho because it is essentially a bible of life without having religious implications.

Daylon Soh (Product, Growth & Design Architect)

There were multiple occasions that books I read helped me but what left a deeper impression was when a friend mentioned how a book I recommended changed his life. The book was The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and that revelation was special because I realised a single idea has the power to change a person's trajectory. From that book, he started looking out for omens in his life and being more sensitive about the opportunities around him. He is now transitioning from being a corporate employee to an entrepreneur.

Ng Rong Xin (Co-fondateur/Explorateur junior)

I’ve read this book more than 3 times at different stages of life and in different languages (English and Chinese Mandarin). I love it, it’s remarkable!

Jules Schroeder (Fondateur de la vie non conventionnelle)

The Alchemist talks about "omens" or signs that appear in our lives that are meant to signal we are on the right path or to consider going in another direction. I read it on a sailboat in 4 hours in Boston, MA a few years ago. I couldn't put the book down. It gave me a new perspective on how to interact with life. Instead of trying to force things to happen or make things happen, pause, reflect, receive and wait. That everything is already and always in order if you are willing to pay attention and release attachment to your timeline.

Peter Vu (Founder/Habitify)

I have learned a lot of lessons that I often use to reflect today. The book is easy to read, which is an important plus for me as I’m quite busy.

During my time as CEO of Unstatic, I felt depressed many times, either because the app experienced some downturns and thus affected my company financially, or because everything in my company just went out of control altogether. At that time, I remember the quote from The Alchemist: “And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

I know, it’s nothing compared to motivational speeches on TED Talk or inspiring stories of Steve Jobs. But at the time, it was the only thing that I clang onto to keep going. I believed that if I pour all my heart and soul into something that I love, I will meet success at the end of the day (I just don’t know exactly what “day” that will be haha).

A lovely story about how the journey is often more important than the reward. Don’t stay in a job you hate just for the big bucks.

Roxana Bitoleanu (Fondateur/Taraba Virtuala)

[One of the books that had the biggest impact on Roxana Bitoleanu] The Alchemist, because we shouldn't look for happiness further than ourselves.

Marie-Denis (Créatrice/Women Make, Co-fondatrice/Threader & IP Man)

I see it as a spiritual guide, it helps me see things differently, with hindsight. What I like the most is that it reminds me that sometimes it’s better to listen to your heart rather than people telling you what you should do. And I think it’s really important, especially in this industry. A lot of people have something to say and advice to give, but in the end it’s different for everyone so it’s important to listen to your guts. I listen to it on my phone, the narrators are really awesome in the French version. It relaxes me and it’s my n°1 technique to get to sleep.

Kamal Ravikant (Entrepreneur & Author)

It really opened my mind up in a way a book hadn’t done at that point in my life. It’s a beautiful, beautiful fable. I think everyone should read that book at some point in their life.

Jérémy Boudinet (Marketing Manager/Nextiva)

I read The Alchemist at a crucial point in my life last year. It really reframed how I saw my own life. There's a lot to be learned from the Narrator's quest to find his life's treasure - and the role that love, faith, perseverance, kindness, and experience plays in his journey to find it.

Descriptif Amazon

Combining magic, mysticism, wisdom and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, The Alchemist has become a modern classic, selling millions of copies around the world and transforming the lives of countless readers across generations.

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.
