​Six Principles to Learn from an Eagle.

​SIX PRINCIPLES TO LEARN FROM AN EAGLE.

1. Eagles fly Alone and at High Altitudes. They don’t fly with sparrows,ravens,and other small birds.

MEANING:
Stay away from narrow-minded people, those that bring you down. Eagle flies with Eagles. Keep good company.

2. Eagles have an Accurate Vision. They have the ability to focus on something as far as 5km away. No matter the obstacles, the eagle will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it.

MEANING:
Have a vision and remain focused no matter what the obstacles and you will succeed.

3. Eagles do not Eat Dead things. They Feed only on Fresh Prey.

MEANING:
Do not rely on your past success, keep looking for new frontiers to conquer. Leave your past where it belongs,in the past.

4. Eagles Love the Storm. When clouds gather, the eagle gets excited,the eagle uses the storms wind to lift itself higher. Once it finds the wind of the storm, the eagle uses the raging storm to lift itself above the clouds. This gives the eagle an opportunity to glide and rest its wings. In the mean time,all the other birds hide in the branches and leaves of the tree.

MEANING:
Face your challenges head on knowing that these will make you emerge stronger and better than you were. We can use the storms of life to rise to greater heights. Achievers are not afraid to rise to greater heights. Achievers are not afraid of challenges, rather they relish them and use them profitably.

5. Eagles Prepare for Training. They remove the feathers and soft grass in the nest so that the young ones get uncomfortable in preparation for flying and eventually flies/ when it becomes unbearable to stay in the nest.

MEANING:
Leave your Comfort Zone, there is No Growth there.

6. When the Eagle Grows Old, His feathers becomes weak and cannot take him as fast and as high as it should. This makes him weak and could make him die. So he retires to a place far away in the mountains. While there, he plucks out the weak feathers on his body and breaks its beaks and claws against the rocks until he is completely bare; a very bloody and painful process. Then he stays in this hiding place until he has grown new feathers,new beaks and claws and then he comes out flying higher than before.

MEANING:
We occasionally need to shed off Old habit no matter how difficult, things that burden us or add no value to our lives should be let go of.

NEVER GIVE UP. BE AN EAGLE.


Acceptance of one’s self is the secret of lasting joy.

A man came to a Master and asked,”How is it that you are always full of bliss? How can I become like you? Please tell me, master.”
“Wait for sometime. When everyone is gone, I will answer your question. It is a secret.” replied the master.

People were coming and going all day. The waiting man was getting exasperated. But, he did want to learn the secret. The sun went down in the west. Most people had gone. The man waited till the attendant, too, left. Now, the master was alone. The man insisted on knowing the secret.

“Do you see the tree over there?”
“Yes, I do.”
“Good. Now do you see there is a bush by the side of the tree?”
“Yes, I see that, too.”
“Good,” continued the master in his confidential manner,”They have been standing side- by- side for years. I have never heard the bush ask the big tree,”Why are you so big, and I, so small?”
That is why they both are happy. The tree is large and the bush is small. Yet, each is unique in itself.

The bush does not say- I wish I were as tall and strong like you.
The tree did not envy the bush to think- I wish I were as compact and close to the ground like you.

Know yourself and be what you really are. Acceptance of one’s self is the secret of lasting joy.

People will forget what you said or did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.

It will take just 60 seconds to read this and change your thinking..

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.

One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.

His bed was next to the room’s only window.

The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end.

They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on
vacation..

Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake.Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color
and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.

Although the other man could not hear the band -he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with
descriptive words.

Days, weeks and months passed.One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body
of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.

She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window.The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left
him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed.

It faced a blank wall.

The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this
window.

The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said, ‘Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.’
