The naturalist picked up the eagle, held it high and said emphatically, “Eagle, you are an eagle, you belong in the sky and not on earth, spread your wings and fly!”. However, when the eagle saw the chicken pecking at their food, it hopped down.
The owner said, “I told you it is a chicken.” “No,” said the naturalist, “it is an eagle and I’ll prove it.”
The next morning he took the eagle to the roof of the house and said, “Eagle, your are an eagle, spread your wings and fly.” Again the eagle jumped down when it saw the chicken pecking their food and joined them eating. The owner said, “I told you it is a chicken.” “No, it is an eagle and it still has the heart of an eagle. Give it one more chance.”
The next morning he took the eagle to a high mountain. There he lifted the eagle and said to it, “Eagle, you are an eagle, you belong in the sky, spread your wings and fly!” The eagle took a good look around, and at a distance, it saw other eagles soaring in the clouds above. All of a sudden the eagle spread its wings and with a scream rose higher and higher and did not return.
What did you learn from the story above?
Stories like this are always a good powerful reminder, as one time or another we may have had visions of ourselves… in the most insignificant and disempowering manner, just like the vision of the eagle as a chicken.
Call it years of conditioning, fear, blame, denial or even just our acceptance that our self-limiting beliefs are our “truths”. As we begin to peel the layers away, one by one… a new inner and beautiful core is revealed. And yes, it is at this half-way mark of life, a comeback awaits.
It’s time to take on a New Perspective, face the giants that exists in our life and begin to live again… in the real truth of our Potential and Destiny!!
