Don't Be A Chicken In Life....

Friday, April 19, 2013

Do you remember when you were younger and you had big dreams?

Dreams so exciting that you couldn't wait to grow up so you could pursue those big dreams?

When you told an adult your dream, they'd say that it was great. No one told you it wasn't possible.

Somewhere along the way your dreams started to fade.

You may have forgotten your dreams, got distracted, or saw others fail in their dreams so you believed yours wasn't possible.

And those adults who believed in your when you were young? They told you to be realistic.

They told you to get a real job.

I want to help you get those dreams back and show you they're not only possible, but attainable.

Reminds me of a story I read once about a large mountain where an eagle's nest rested.

The nest contained four eggs. One day an earthquake caused one of the eggs to tumble
down the mountain to a chicken farm, located in the valley below.

The chickens cared for the eggs as if it were one of their own. One day the egg hatched
and a beautiful eagle was born.

But the eagle was raised to be a chicken. Soon, the eagle believed he was nothing more
than a chicken.

While playing a game on the farm with some of his chicken friends one day, the eagle looked up and noticed a group of mighty eagles soaring in the skies.

"Wow," said the eagle, "I wish I could soar like those birds." The chickens all laughed at him. "You cannot soar with those birds. You are a chicken and chickens do not fly."

The eagle kept looking up at his real family, dreaming that he could be with them.

Each time the eagle let his dream be known, he was told it couldn't be done.

The eagle, after time, stopped dreaming and continued to live his life like a chicken.

Finally, after a long life, the eagle a chicken.

What's the moral of the story? If you listen to the chickens around you, you'll live and
die like them - a chicken.

Inside you is that eagle.

This is your call to soar. You are an eagle. It's time to follow your dreams and not listen to the chickens.
