A man found an eagle’s egg and put it in the nest of a barnyard hen. The eaglet hatched with the rest of the chicks and grew up with them.
All his life the eagle did what the rest of the chickens did, thinking he was a chicken. He scratched the earth for worms & insects, he clucked and cackled and he would thrash his wings and fly only a few feet into the air.
Years passed and the eagle grew old. One day he saw a magnificent bird above him in the cloudless sky, it glided in graceful majesty among the powerful wind currents, with scarcely a beat of it’s strong golden wings.
The old eagle looked up in awe and asked the chicken next to him, “Who’s that?” …
“That’s the eagle – the king of the birds” said his neighbour, “he belongs to the sky, we belong to the earth – we’re chickens”.
And so the eagle lived and died as a chicken, for that’s what he thought he was.
So...What's it to be for you?
Are you going to live like others, do what others do, and be like others?
Are you going to believe what others tell you rather than do your own thing or find out for yourself?
Are you never going to question other peoples beliefs about what you can achieve?
Are you going to believe something is unattainable because others around you have never reached those heights?
Are you going to continue living like that until, one day, you see someone living and doing what you can already do right now?
How are you going to feel seeing people
living the life you want to live?
Or are you going to change, right now? Are you going to shed the shackles of restraint, throw off those limiting beliefs and listen to that voice deep inside you, that tells you again and again to FLY?
Why don't you be the person you are destined to be RIGHT NOW?
Don't waste another second. Be the person you were BORN to be! Dare to Soar...and soar high!
