Inspiration on the "7 Principles of an Eagle" -- Author Dr. Myles

1. Eagles fly alone at a high altitude and not with sparrows or mix
other smaller birds. Birds of a feather flock together. No other
bird goes
to the height of the eagle. Eagles fly with eagles. Never in a
flock. Even
when Moses (Old Testament Bible) went to commune with God on the
he left the crowd at the foothills.

Stay away from sparrows and ravens. Eagles fly with eagles.

2. Eagles have strong vision, which focuses up to 5 kilometers from
air.When an eagle sites prey- even a rodent from this distance, he
his focus on it and sets out to get it. No matter the obstacle, the
will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it.

Have a vision and remain focused no matter what the obstacle and you

3. Eagles do not eat dead things. He feeds on fresh prey. Vultures
dead animals but not eagles. Steer clear of outdated and old

Do your research well always.

4. The Eagle is the only bird that loves the storm. When clouds
the eagles get excited. The eagle uses the wings of the storm to
rise and
pushed up higher. Once it finds the wing of the storm, the eagle
flapping and uses the pressure of the raging storm to soar the
clouds and
glide. This gives the eagle an opportunity to rest its wings. In the
meantime all the other birds hide in the leaves and branches of the

We can use the storms of our lives (obstacles, trouble, etc) to rise
greater heights. Achievers relish challenges and use them profitably.

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 pursing her
she picks a twig. She flies back into the air with the male pursuing
she has reached a height high enough for her, she lets the twig fall
the ground and watches it as it falls. The male chases after the
twig. The
faster it falls, the faster he chases until he reaches it and has to
it before it falls to the ground, then bring it back to the female
The female eagle grabs the twig and flies to a much higher altitude
pursued by the male until she perceives it high enough, and then
drops the
for the male to chase. This goes on for hours, with the height
until the female eagle is assured that the male eagle has mastered
the art
picking 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.

6. Eagles prepare for training. When about to lay eggs, the female
male eagle identify a place very high on a cliff where no predators
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 picks thorns and lays them on
top of
the twigs. He flies back to earth and picks soft grass to cover the
thorns, and then flies back to pick rugs to put on the grass.

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 and
and lays them on top of the thorns, then plucks his feathers to
the nest. The thorns on the outside of the nest protect it from

Both male and female eagles participate in raising the eagle family.
lays the eggs and protects them; he builds the nest and hunts.
During the
of training the young ones to fly, the mother eagle throws the
eaglets out
the nest and because they are scared, they jump into the nest again.
she throws them out and then takes off the soft layers of the nest,
leaving the thorns bare. When the scared eaglets jump into the nest
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
them. Next, mother eagle pushes them off the cliff into the air. As
shriek in fear, father eagle flies out and picks them up on his back
before they fall, and brings them back to the cliff. This goes on for
until they start flapping their wings. They get excited at this
knowledge that they can fly and not fall at such a fast rate. The
and mother eagle supports them with their wings.

The preparation of the nest teaches us to prepare for changes;
The preparation for the family teaches us that active participation
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,
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 love 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.

7. When the 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
has grown new feathers, then he can come out.

We occasionally need to shed off old habits & items that burden us
add no
value to our lives.
