Eagles are large, powerful, resilient, courageous, daring and ever-soaring birds of prey. They have seven principles that have made them the greatest birds. These principles are

important for success in business and entrepreneurship. These principles are as follows:

Principle One:
Eagles fly alone at high altitude and not with sparrows or other small birds. No other bird can go to the height of the eagle. Stay away from Sparrows and Ravens. Eagles fly with Eagles. As an entrepreneur or an aspirant for success in business soar high on your goals, objectives and targets even if it means soaring alone and stay away from people who will bring you down or do not fly on the same high altitude like you.

Principle Two:
Eagles have strong vision. They have the ability to focus on something up to five kilometers away. When an eagle sites his prey, he narrows his focus on it and set out to get it. No matter the obstacles, the eagle will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it. Therefore, Have a vision and remain focused, no matter what the obstacle and you will succeed.

Principle Three:
Eagles do not eat dead things. They feed only on fresh prey. Vultures eat dead animals, but eagles will not. Therefore, steer clear of outdated and old information. Always do your research very well.

Principle Four:
Eagles love the storm. When clouds gather, the eagles get excited. The eagle uses the storms wind to lift it higher. Once it finds the wind of the storm, the eagle uses the raging storm to lift him above the clouds. Therefore, we can use the storms of life to rise to greater heights. Achievers relish challenges and use them profitably.

Principle Five:
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 pursuing her and she picks a twig. She flies back into the air with the male pursuing her. Once she has reached a height high enough for her, she lets the twig fall to the ground and watches it as it falls. The male chases after the twig. The faster it falls, the faster he chases it. He has to catch it before it falls to the ground. He then brings it back to the female eagle. The female eagle grabs the twig and flies to a higher altitude and then drops the twig for the male to chase. This goes on for hours, with the height increasing until the female eagle is assured that the male eagle has mastered the art of catching 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.

Principle Six:
The Eagle Prepares for Changes. When ready to lay eggs, the female and male eagles identify a place very high on a cliff where no predators can reach. The male flies to earth, 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 and picks thorns laying them on top of the twigs. He flies back to earth and picks soft grass to cover the thorns. Adjust and Adapt to Changes.

Principle Seven:
The Eagle Knows when to Retire. When an 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 until he has grown new feathers, then he can come out. We occasionally need to shed off old habits and items that burden us without adding to our lives.

Think About This…

“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up knowing it must run faster than the fastest lion or be killed and every morning a lion awakens knowing it must outrun the slowest gazelle or starve to death. It doesn’t matter if you are a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up, you’d better be running.” - Anonymous
