Fly like an Eagle

Fall is the time when eaglets learn to fly!

Fly Like An EagleIn order for an eaglet to learn how to fly, the mother eagle simply tosses the little eaglet out of the nest. Because they are scared, they jump back into the nest again.

Next, she tosses them out and removes the soft layers of the nest exposing sticks and thorns. When the scared eaglets jump back into the nest, they are pricked by the thorns causing them to jump out again on their own.

Next, mother eagle tosses them out of the nest and into the air. As they shriek in fear, the mother eagle flies out and catches them before they fall and brings them back to the nest. This goes on for some time until they start flapping their wings.

Here is how you fly…

1. Connect with people who support you and stay away from those who don’t! Eagles fly alone at high altitude and not with sparrows, vultures or other small birds. Eagles fly with Eagles.

2. Focus on your goals – follow a business and marketing plan and establish consistent systems that help you focus. Eagles have strong vision. They have the ability to focus on something up to five kilometers away. When an eagle sites his prey, he narrows his focus on it and set out to get it. Have a vision and remain focused no matter what the obstacle and you will succeed.

3. Stay Current – you need to know trends and stay ahead of your market. Technology is alive and well – it’s time to embrace it and put it to work for you. Eagles do not eat dead things – they only eat fresh prey. Don’t waste your time on marketing efforts that aren’t fresh and good for your business!

4. Fly Above the Storm – use challenges to lift you up above the clouds. Now is the time to be pro-active and step up your marking with effective lead generating systems. The eagle is the only bird that does NOT seek shelter during a rainstorm – instead it flies above the clouds to avoid the rain.

5. Trust but verify. The eagle tests before it trusts. When a female meets a male and they want to mate, she flies down to earth with the male pursuing 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 it. He has to catch it before it falls to the ground. He then brings it back to the female eagle. The female eagle grabs the twig and flies to a higher altitude and then drops the twig for the male to chase. This goes on for hours, with the height increasing until the female is assured that the male eagle has mastered the art of catching the twig which shows commitment. Then and only then, will she allow him to mate with her. Whether in private life or in business, one should test commitment of people intended for partnership or business dealings – this is just good sound advice!

6. Prepare for Change. Sometimes changes and updates are necessary to get the desired outcome. Identify the changes and then prepare to make them. The eagle prepares for changes. When ready to lay eggs, the female and male eagle identify a place very high on a cliff where no predators can reach. They then place thorns on the outside of the nest protect it from possible intruders

7. Shedd your old habits – old habits, like feathers, need to be removed so new ones can grow. An eagle knows when to retire: When an eagle grows old, his feathers become weak. When he feels weak, he retires to a place far away in the rocks. While there, he plucks out every feather on his body until he is completely bear (kinda like Chris on a Sunday morning). He stays in this hiding place until he has grown new feathers, then he can come out. Every day is a new day! If your old habits are preventing your from flying like an eagle call then Tricia or Chris to help you fly today!
