Eagles are the king of the birds. They are known to attain staggering heights. They gracefully soar so high, farther and longer than any other bird in the sky utilizing their vision which is five times stronger than man’s. Eagles soar as high as 10,000 feet, with attaining remarkable heights goes along visibility advantage. A turkey has virtually no visibility advantage because it is hooked to the ground and therefore, has a ground level visibility. The soaring ability of eagles enables them to observe and be observed, they can sight trouble or prey miles away, this enable eagles to avoid danger and positions them to constantly seize opportunities of supply and thus lacking sustenance is not a part of their experience. Consequently, their heights give them insight. The principle is: The higher you fly the farther you can see and be seen; the farther you see the wider and higher will be your perspective. Visibility advantage determines destiny advantage, heights determines insights.
Using an analogy; when you are driving on the ground level, your view or perspective is limited and you become vulnerable to distorted perspective which leads to wrong choices in life which could lead to a life caged in frustration or even destiny wreckage. However, when you are on a flight, you have a wholesome and wider perspective because you can see the entire landscape. This wholesome and wider outlook leads to right and wise choices and the ability to see and seize opportunities, avoiding impending danger and experience a higher quality of life. Therefore, scarcity mentality leads to limited and shallow thinking that plunges one into the dungeon of failure while abundance mentality leads to a high-soaring destiny.
Until your dreams are verbalized, it cannot be internalized and until your dreams are internalized, it cannot be externalized and until your dreams are externalized, it cannot be materialized. Therefore, write down your goals; life time goals, long range, medium range and short term goals. View and review your goals on a daily basis. Never lose sight of your dreams and goals lest you lose touch of actualizing it. Invest in your dreams each day by doing something that leads toward the accomplishment of your goals. Cut down on your commitments so that you won’t cut off the chances of accomplishing your dreams. Think through before accepting any commitment from people in order to get the time to act through on your dreams. One of the most courageous words in the world is “No”; it frees you from the bondage of approval addiction.
