The Eagle has the longest life-span of its species. It can live upto 70 years.
But to reach this age, the eagle must make a very difficult decision!
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 of change lasts for 150 days (5 months)
It requires the eagle to fly to a mountain top and sit on its surface.
There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out.
Then the eagle will wait for the new beak to grow back, after which it will pluck out its talons.
When its talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old aged feathers.
And after the new feathers grow again, eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and lives for 30 more years!!
Ever wondered why is this rigorous change needed?
It is required in order to survive and live a fulfilling life. 🙂
We too at some point of time in life, have to start the process of rigorous change.
We need to get rid of the unpleasant old memories, negative habits and our fixed mind set. Only when we are freed from the burdens of past, we can take the advantage of what is there our present.
If an eagle can make a life saving decision to change at the age of 40….why can’t we?
In order to take on a new journey ahead, let go of, your old limiting beliefs. Open up your mind and let yourself fly high like an eagle!
When it rains, all birds occupy shelter. But the Eagle, avoids the rain by flying above the clouds.
The problem is common to all but the attitude to solve it makes the difference. Don’t be afraid of change, accept it gracefully.
Have a great day ahead! 🙂
