Five Success Habits We Can All Learn From The Eagle

“The eagle spends its life in an excellent manner, as seen by its migration to mountain tops and its ability to soar above the skies. In addition, the bird has the greatest longevity of any member of its species at 70 years. However, the eagle must soar above challenging obstacles in order to accomplish this. Let’s examine some of the eagle’s best-living habits and draw insights to help us accomplish our own objectives.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>

1. Be Open-minded

When it rains, the rest of the birds enter their nests but eagles fly above the clouds to avoid the rain. Come to think of it. If the rain happens to fall heavily, it will definitely enter the nests where all other birds hide, but eagles are safe at all costs. Challenges are common to everyone but the way each individual approaches them makes the entire difference. Conquerors don’t solve problems using common and average means but open up their minds to find firm and lasting solutions.

2. Spend Your Time With The Right People

Eagles fly alone or with birds of similar kind. The people you live with influence your habits and overall life in a great degree. People with similar goals as yours can be of considerable help in achieving your personal goals. Distance yourself from people who have nothing to offer in your success journey – the doubters and complainers.

3. See The Advantage In Your Challenges

When there is a storm, the eagle flys high, rests its wings, and the storm winds lifts it higher. When challenges come into our lives, we should not complain or try to avoid them. Instead, we should see them as opportunities to make us better. Many a time we have heard it said that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

4. Be Willing To Pay The Price Of Change

Along with the eagle’s wings becoming heavy for it to fly well and its claws losing power to catch its prey, at age 40 also the birds beak curve making it a problem to feed – an alarm for starvation. An author from India Times writes, ” 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 involves the eagle flying on a mountain top and sitting on its nest. From there, the bird plucks out its beak by knocking it on a rock. After a new beak is grown, the eagle knocks its claws and plucks them out. Lastly it plucks out its feathers when new claws are grown. Growth of new feathers marks the completion of the process by the eagle taking its famous flight of rebirth.

We all admire change in our lives but not the disappointments and hardships that come along with it. Change is a pains taking process that requires determination and perseverance. For us to see change in our lives, we must get rid of habits that add no value into our lives, the same way the eagle gets rid of its unhelpful beak, claws and feathers. This should be followed by forming of new habits that lead us to what we want to be.

5. Be Focused

Through maximum concentration the eagle is able to catch its prey. First it spots its prey and then goes for it right away. Set your goals, have a clear vision of them, and then set out for them without giving in to the distractions of the background. Though losing focus is very easy, by practising mindfulness we can always maintain it. This works by time to time asking ourselves what we are doing and what we should be doing to achieve our goals.

Bottom line: What things do you want to accomplish in life? Keep working on them because that’s the only way dreams are turned to reality.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
