1. Keen Eyesight
Anyone who will go far in life must have a vision with absolute clarity void of ambiguities. Make plans and don’t live for the moment. Don’t ever underestimate a man with focus and great vision, he will not only make a great leader but he will also live a meaningful life as he leads his life towards the gates of destiny.
2. High Flyers
Eagles soar and this separates them from mingling with other birds. They are in a class of their own – a superior class up there that other birds long to be. Eagles can fly up to an altitude of 10,000 feet and they are able to land quickly to catch a prey.
High flyers stand out of the crowds; they live an outstanding life. When you soar high above obstacles, you create an extraordinary class of your own. You have got impeccable standards and your meaning of success does not necessarily need to be the same with the definition of others.
The journey in the outstanding lane comes at a price – it can be very lonely but be rest assured that you have got enough space to spread your wings for dominance and unrivaled influence.
3. High Builders
In life, when you think about greatness, don’t look at it as a destination but as a journey. Going to the land of greatness means you have decided to build a nest amidst the mountains of excellence and you are not returning to the valleys of mediocrity.
The strong proclivity for the top is just embedded deep underneath your skin and it drives you with unique spontaneity. You can’t hide it, it will always show anywhere you go because that’s what is in you – excellence!
In life, we must learn to be fearless in the pursuit of success as we face the challenges on our way squarely knowing that the only option is a victory.
Victory will always come if only you are willing to dare the impossible, challenge the status quo and scare your fears till they shudder. On the other side of your fear, you will find triumph and success. Fear can make an Eagle live like a chicken.
The storms of life will come in its season, what will you do? Will you run for cover? Or you take advantage of the storm to mount on greater heights? Will you be a chicken or be an Eagle?
The tougher the storm, the greater its possibility of taking you higher. It is as simple as writing examinations in school before going to the next level. The exams in your final year are tougher than the ones in your first year.
6. Retreat for energy
When the demands of life weigh into your schedule and you are almost drained, a retreat is strongly recommended to keep in constant touch with relevance. To keep the steam, a retreat is required, it helps to keep you in check and on point.
In your career or chosen field, there is a need to constantly keep up with what is going on; the latest trends, the new discoveries to remain evergreen with a dew of knowledge. The secret to public manifestation is a loaded bank account of private investments.
7. Nurture the younger generation
They nurture and take good care of them till they reach maturity. The mother Eagle starts with a flying lesson for the eaglet when it discovers that the eaglet is up to the task. It flies in the air with the eaglet on the back of the mother Eagle; midway into the air, the Big Eagle removes itself from under the eaglet, the flying begins and the Mother Eagle catches it again. This process is repeated.
If the eaglet is a slow or coward learner, the Mother Eagle returns with the eaglet to the nest and destroys the nest right in front of the Eaglet and nudges the eaglet off the cliff to compulsory learn flying.
Great people invest in the younger generation by teaching them the lessons of life with love. They give their mentees daring challenges but never forget to empower and direct them in the proper way.
True success invests in others till they become successful in life. Whatever you have learnt in life, pass it on to worthy trustees and history will be kind to you.
