A man found an eagle’s egg and placed it under a brooding hen. The eaglet hatched with the chickens and grew to be like them. He clucked and cackled; scratched the earth for worms; flapped his wings and managed to fly a few feet in the air.

Years passed. One day, the eagle, now grown old, saw a magnificent bird above him in the sky. It glided in graceful majesty against the powerful wind, with scarcely a movement of its golden wings.

Spellbound, the eagle asked, “Who’s that?”

“That’s the king of the birds, the eagle,” said his neighbor. “He belongs to the sky. We belong to the earth—we’re chickens.”

So the eagle lived and died a chicken for that’s what he thought he was.

 

Lesson

You become what you think about yourself. If you think highly of yourself, then that could be your reality. If you think lowly of yourself, so you shall remain. Know also that it is not enough to think highly of ourselves but to act positively and work towards our goals.
