Lessons To Learn From The Eagle
The Eagle has the longest life-span of its species. It can live up to 70 years. But to reach this age, the eagle must make a very difficult decision!
In its 40th year, the eagle's long and flexible Talons can no longer grab a prey which serves as food. Its long and sharp beak becomes bent.
Its old-aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, stick to its chest and make it difficult to fly. Then, the eagle is left with only two options: DIE or go through a painful process of CHANGE!
This process lasts for 150 days (5 months)
The process requires the eagle to fly to a mountain top and sit on its nest. There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out.
Then the eagle will wait for the new beak to grow back after which it will pluck out its talons. When its talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old aged feathers.
And after this the eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and LIVES for 30 more years!!
Why is Change needed???
In order to survive and live. We too have to start the change process. We sometimes need to get rid of the unpleasant old memories, negative habits and our fixed mind set. Only Freed from the past burdens can we take advantage of the present.
If an eagle can make a life saving and life changing decision at the age of 40....why can't we? In order to take on a New Journey ahead, let go of your negative old limiting beliefs.
Open up your mind and let yourself fly high like an eagle!
When it rains, all birds occupy shelter. But the EAGLE avoids the rain by flying above the clouds....The problem is common to all but the attitude to solve it makes the difference!
Don't be afraid of change...accept it gracefully..!!!

💥 Eagles do not eat dead things. They always feed on fresh prey.
Lesson: Your past successes do not promise a present success unless you continually hone in your abilities and strategies. So do not rely on your past success, keep looking for new frontiers to conquer
💥 Eagles love the storm. The storm assures that the eagle will soar high.
Lesson: When storms of life billow your way, don't ask "Why me" instead ask "Why not me?" No one ever learns from good fortunes, all life;s lessons are made from bad fortunes. Face your challenges squarely do not run away from them or pretend that they are not there, because it is in overcoming them that you shall have a story to tell and they help you to develop strength of character as they will make you emerge stronger and better than you were.
💥 Eagles test before they trust.
Lesson: Test the loyalty and commitment of your friends and leaders in your team.
💥 Eagles Prepare for training. They remove the feathers and soft grass in the nest so that the young get uncomfortable in preparation for flying.
Lesson: Until you leave your comfort zone, you are not yet alive and this is simply because there is no growth there.
💥 Eagles find a place of renewal. As they grow old, they go through a painful process of transformation. The eagle knocks its old beak on a rock to remove it. Once a new one grows it plucks its old feathers from its chests and wings and lives for another 30 years.
Lesson: Make transformation of the mind, body and soul a constant and persistent factor in your life. Read books that will transform you. Watch things that will challenge and build you. Leave the world better than you found it.
