Eagle Story -Truly Motivational.

Filed under: Information — Cedric @ 11:27 am

The Story of the eagle…

The eagle has the longest life-span among birds. It can live up to 70 years, but to reach this age, the eagle must make a hard decision. In its 40, its’ long and flexible talons can no longer grab prey which serves as food. Its’ long and sharp beak become bent. Its’ old-aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, become stuck 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 which lasts 150 days. The process requires that the eagle fly to a mountain top and sit on its’ nest. There the eagle knocks its’ beak against a rock until it plucks it out. After plucking it out, the eagle will wait for a new beak to grow back and then it will pluck out its’ talons. When its’ new talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its’ old-aged feathers. And after 150 days, the eagle takes its’ famous flight of rebirth and lives for … 30 more years.

Why is change needed?

1.) Many times, in order to survive we have to start a change process.

2.) We sometimes need to get rid of old memories, habits and other past traditions.

3.) Only freed from past burdens, can we take advantage of the present.

Our lives are not determined by what happends to us but by how we react to what happens. Not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results. Let’s change to make a change~!

When it rains, most birds head for shelter; the eagle is the only bird that, in order to avoid the rain, starts flying above the cloud. … 

Thanks, Cedric
