SIX LEADERSHIP PRINCIPLES TO LEARN FROM AN EAGLE

1. Eagles fly Alone and at High Altitudes.
They don’t fly with sparrows, ravens, and other small birds.

MEANING; Stay away from narrow-minded people, those that bring you down. Eagle flies with Eagles. Keep good company.

2. Eagles have an Accurate Vision. They have the ability to focus on something as far as 5km away. No matter the obstacles, the eagle will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it.

MEANING; Have a vision and remain focused no matter what the obstacles and you will succeed.

3. Eagles do not Eat Dead things. They Feed only on Fresh Prey.

MEANING; Do not rely on your past success, keep looking for new frontiers to conquer. Leave your past where it belongs, in the past.

4. Eagles Love the Storm.
When clouds gather, the eagle gets excited, the eagle uses the storms wind to lift itself higher. Once it finds the wind of the storm, the eagle uses the raging storm to lift itself above the clouds. This gives the eagle an opportunity to glide and rest its wings. In the meantime, all the other birds hide in the branches and leaves of the tree.

MEANING; Face your challenges head on knowing that these will make you emerge stronger and better than you were. We can use the storms of life to rise to greater heights. Achievers are not afraid to rise to greater heights. Achievers are not afraid of challenges, rather they relish them and use them profitably.

5. Eagles Prepare for Training.
They remove the feathers and soft grass in the nest so that the young ones get uncomfortable in preparation for flying, and eventually flies when it becomes unbearable to stay in the nest.

MEANING; Leave your Comfort Zone, there is No Growth there.

6. At old age, the feathers become weak and cannot take the eagle as fast and as high as it should. This makes him weak and could make him die. So he retires to a place far away in the mountains. While there, he plucks out the weak feathers on his body and breaks its beaks and claws against the rocks until he is completely bare; a very bloody and painful process. Then he stays in this hiding place until he has grown new feathers, new beaks and claws and then he comes out flying higher than before.

MEANING; We occasionally need to shed off old habit no matter how difficult, things that burden us or add no value to our lives must go.

How To Unlock The Potential of Witnessing Your Thoughts

In the same way, life gets so busy that so many things pass us by, so it is with our minds. Some days your mind is so busy that your thoughts overwhelm you, while other days it is just quiet.

The mind can propel you to achieve your desired results in life, and if you can train it to reclaim its natural capability to stay in the present and only wander off to your pre-designed destination, then nothing within the human ability would be beyond your reach. Your mind is always racing with thoughts, some, you recognize while others, you don’t, just like your breath. This is because you are continuously choosing when, and how you want to process those thoughts, which your biases, experiences, knowledge, or lack of presence play a significant role.

One thing, for sure is this, thoughts will always be racing through your mind just like the flowing river. What will you do? Resist them? Hold on to them? Or do nothing?

Take a moment of silence and notice the overflow of thoughts pouring into your mind. Do not resist, hold, nor react to them. Can you pinpoint where your thoughts are coming from? Somewhere or nowhere? Can you label them? Do you know why these thoughts are popping up? Are you tempted to stop, or embrace them? Do you define yourself by them? Are you dazed by them?

Notice who or what is watching them pass, like the moving clouds. Can you see that you were the spectator? That you were, in fact, separate from your thoughts? If you choose to resist, hold, or react to any thought, you halt the process. This might be a good or an undesirable thing depending on whether you seek inner peace or chaos. Just as you use the ladder to climb up to get a task done, use the same to go down into your very depths to unravel the answers you seek.

You should apply this process of watching your thoughts as an independent entity to life’s challenges. When faced with inconvenient situations or even difficult people, and you are tempted to be anxious and angry, just step aside, break free from the entanglement, and choose the outcome you wish and then act accordingly. Remember not to react. Just like your thoughts, these too shall pass.
