Eagles have principles
- Eagles fly alone at a high altitude and not with sparrows or mix with other smaller birds like geese. No other bird goes to the height of the eagle. Eagles fly with eagles. Principle: Birds of a feather flock together
- Eagles have strong vision, which focuses up to 5 kilometers from the air. When an eagle sites prey – even a rodent from this distance, he narrows his focus on it and sets out to get it. No matter what obstacles come, the eagle will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it. Principle: Have a vision and remain focused no matter what the obstacle you face and you will succeed.
- Eagles do not eat dead things. He feeds on fresh prey. Principle: eat local and fresh.
- The Eagle is the only bird that loves the storm. When clouds gather, the eagles get excited. The eagle uses the wings of the storm to rise and is pushed up higher. Once it finds the wing of the storm, the eagle stops flapping and uses the pressure of the raging storm to soar the clouds and glide. This gives the eagle an opportunity to rest its wings. In the meantime, all the other birds hide in the leaves and branches of the trees. Principle: We can use the storms of our lives (obstacles, troubles, etc.) to rise to greater heights. Achievers relish challenges and use them profitably.
- The Eagle tests before it trusts. When a female eagle meets a male and they want to mate, she flies down to earth with the male pursing her and she picks a twig. She flies back into the air with the male pursuing her. Once she has reached a height high enough for her, she lets the twig fall to the ground and watches it as it falls. The male chases after the twig. The faster it falls, the faster he chases until he reaches it and has to catch it before it falls to the ground, then bring it back to the female eagle. The female eagle grabs the twig and flies to a much higher altitude pursued by the male until she perceives it high enough, and then drops the twig for the male to chase. This goes on for hours, with the height increasing until the female eagle is assured that the male eagle has mastered the art of picking the twig which shows commitment, then and only then, will she allow him to mate with her! Principle: Whether in private life or in business, one should test commitment of people intended for partnership.
- When the eagle grows old, his feathers become weak and cannot take him as fast as they should.. When he feels weak and about to die, he retires to a place far away in the rocks. While there, he plucks out every feather on his body until he is completely bare. He stays in this hiding place until he has grown new feathers, then he can come out. Principle: We occasionally need to shed off old habits, things that burden us, or add no value to our lives.
