The eagle is the king of the bird kingdom. The only bird that dares to peck an eagle is the crow. The crow sits on the eagle’s back & bites its neck. However, the eagle doesn’t respond or fight with the crow. It simply opens up its wings and begins to fly higher in the sky. The higher the eagle flies, the harder it is for the crow to breathe, and the crow eventually falls due to lack of oxygen.
We need to stop wasting our time with the crows of life. Not all battles we need to respond to. Not all arguments, comments, or critics need our attention. A lot of times, we need to keep raising our standards. The crow represents all the challenges in life and the people you don’t want to have in your life or team. You can choose to fight everything wasting your precious energy and getting nowhere, or you can soar higher like the eagle and watch all of your challenges fade away slowly.
- When people criticize you, go higher.
- When life challenges, you go higher.
- When endless problems are pecking at you, then go higher.
- Go higher by getting better – by learning more, doing more, being more, and becoming more.
If you do so, when the crows of life appear, they won’t be with you for so long because they can’t breathe at your level. Problems will only disturb you only when you are not good enough to handle them. When you improve, your life improves. So when life challenges you today, try to be an eagle and go higher.
