Hang Around Chicken long enough,
and you'll begin to think & act like one too...
"A baby eagle became orphaned when something happened to his parents. He glided down to the ground from his nest but was not yet able to fly. A man picked him up. The man took him to a farmer and said, “This is a special kind of barnyard chicken that will grow up big.” The farmer said, “Don’t look like no barnyard chicken to me.” “Oh yes, it is. You will be glad to own it.” The farmer took the baby eagle and placed it with his chickens.
Its either they will encourage you & boost you to fly or tear you down & keep you on the ground. The baby eagle learned to imitate the chickens. He could scratch the ground for grubs and worms too. He grew up thinking he was a chicken.
Then one day an eagle flew over the barnyard. The eagle looked up and wondered, “What kind of animal is that? How graceful, powerful, and free it is.” Then he asked another chicken, “What is that?” The chicken replied, “Oh, that is an eagle. But don’t worry yourself about that. You will never be able to fly like that.”
And the eagle went back to scratching the ground. He continued to behave like the chicken he thought he was. Finally he died, never knowing the grand life that could have been his."
Moral of the Story:
1. Regardless of what people say or think about you; it's what you believe that makes a whole lot of difference.If you believe you are destined for greater things; you attitute & action will follow...
2. Unless you really test your limits, you will never know what you are truely capable of
3. The type of people you hang around with makes alot of difference;
It's either they boost you to soar on wings like eagle or tear you down to keep you on the ground..
To continue to behave like a chicken or to soar on wings like an eagle is a choice!
