Eagles – Our Story

Eagles enjoy the longest life expectancy among bird species.

They can live up to 70 years.

In order to survive, they have to make a critical decision at the age of 40. When eagles turn 40, their claws are weaken, and is hard for them to catch preys. Their beaks are growing long and almost touching their chest. Their wings are heavier due to thick and long feathers.

They have 2 options:

  • to Die or
  • to Undergo a painful transformation.

They decide to undergo the painful transformation. They fly to mountain tops to build their home and rest.

This is the beginning of 150 days of perseverance and a steadfast journey!!!

They have to hit their beaks against the rock till they fall off. And wait patiently for the new beaks to grow. They will use their new beaks to pull out their nails. With their newly grown nails, they will then clean off their old feathers.

 

5 months later, the eagles will fly again with new feathers and renewed strength for another 30 years.

 

LESSON

Sometimes we have to make difficult decisions in life. In order to embark on a new journey, let go of your old habits and traditions; and let yourself fly and SOAR again like an Eagle.

 

MORALE
