SEVEN PRINCIPLES OF AN EAGLE






In the Holy Bible, Isaiah 40: 31 God said “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagle; they shall run and not be weary and they shall walk and not faint”
So also in Psalms 103: 5 David poured out his heart to God by confirming what type of Bird an Eagle is, he says ” who satisfy thy mouth with good things so that thy youth is renewed like the eagles”
Eagle is a special bird, strong, and focused. The above scriptures confirmed this and that is why eagle can not or never be compared with other bird like sparrow.
I want to established here today that, you are born champion and co-creator, that is why when God created everything, He called man(Adam) to name them and it is established that the names that he (Adam) gave them they bear till today.
As the year is come to an end, that you have not achieve what you planned to do this year does not make you a failure. That you fell on the way to success does not mean you can not still be successful. Note, it is only a person that fell and remained there without effort to stand up could be seen on the way to failure.
Folks, if you want to move fast in life, you need to move light, shed those extra baggage you are carrying, at the end of the day, you will get there earlier than expected.
Below are the lessons you can learn from that bird called EAGLE, as you follow the Eagle’s principles you will have better 2014, and your own Hallelujah will surely be the loudest.
Read on.
 PRINCIPLE 1
Eagles fly alone at high altitude and not with sparrows or other small birds. No other bird can get to the height of the eagle. Stay away from sparrows and
ravens.
LESSON TO LEARN : Eagles fly with Eagles
PRINCIPLE 2
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. No matter the obstacles, the eagle will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it.
LESSON TO LEARN: Have a vision and remain focused no matter what the obstacle and you will succeed.

PRINCIPLE 3
Eagles do not eat dead things. They feed only on fresh prey. Vultures eat dead animals, but eagles will not.
LESSON TO LEARN: Be careful with what you feed your eyes and ears with, especially in movies and on TV. Steer clear of outdated and old information. Always do your research
well.
PRINCIPLE 4
Eagles love the storm. When clouds gather, the eagles get excited. The eagle uses the storm’s wind to lift it higher. Once it finds the wind of the storm, the eagles uses the raging storm to lift him 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 leaves and branches of the trees.
LESSON TO LEARN: We can use the storms of life to rise to greater heights. Achievers relish challenges and use them profitably.
PRINCIPLE 5
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 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 eagle 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.
LESSON TO LEARN: Whether in private life or in business, one should test commitment of people intended for partnership.
PRINCIPLE 6
When ready to lay eggs, the female and male eagle identify a place very high on a cliff where no predators can reach. The male flies to earth and picks thorns and lays them on the crevice of the cliff, then flies to earth again to collect twigs which he lays in the intended nest. He flies back to earth and picks thorns laying them on top of the twigs. He flies back to earth and picks soft grass to cover the thorns. When this first layering is complete the male eagle runs back to earth and picks more thorns, lays them on the nest; runs back to
get grass it on top of the thorns, then plucks his feathers to complete the nest. The thorns on the outside of the nest protect it from possible intruders.
Both male and female eagles participate in raising the eagle family. She lays the eggs and protects them; he builds the nest and hunts. During the time of training the young ones to fly, the mother eagle throws the eaglets out of the nest. Because they are scared, they jump into the nest again.
Next, she throws them out and then takes off the soft layers of the nest, leaving the thorns bare When the scared eaglets again jump into the nest, they are pricked by thorns. Shrieking and bleeding they jump out again this time wondering why the mother and father who love them so much are torturing them. Next, mother eagle pushes them off the cliff into the air. As they shriek in fear, father eagle flies out and catches them up on his back before they fall and brings them back to the cliff. This goes on for sometime until they start
flapping their wings. They get excited at this new found knowledge that they can fly.
LESSON TO LEARN: The preparation of the nest teaches us to prepare for changes; The preparation for the family teaches us that active participation of both partners leads to success; The being pricked by the thorns tells us that sometimes being too comfortable where we are may result into our not experiencing life, not progressing and not learning at all. The thorns of life come to teach us that we need to grow, get out of the nest and live on. We may not know it but the seemingly comfortable and safe haven may have thorns.
The people who love us do not let us languish in sloth but push us hard to grow and prosper. Even in their seemingly bad actions they have good intentions for us.
PRINCIPLE 7
When an Eagle grows old, his feathers become weak and cannot take him as fast as he 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.
LESSON TO LEARN: We occasionally need to shed off old habits & items that burden us without adding to our lives.
