2016_Eagle Metaphor_7 Success Tips

  
2016_Eagle Metaphor_7 Success Tips.
(1) An Eagle creates a niche for itself. It flies alone, at altitudes no other class of Avians do. It doesn’t fly with sparrows or other small birds. 
Tip: Endeavor to fly at higher altitudes. How? By flocking (sorry!) with other Eagles, not sparrows and ravens. Why? Because, like begets like. Keep good company, get credible counsel and direction.
(2) Eagles have an accurate vision. An eagle has the ability to focus on something as far away as 5 kilometers. No matter the obstacle, an eagle will not shift its focus from the prey until it makes a kill.
Tip: Have a clear vision and mission for 2016. Then remain focused like a laser beam no matter what obstacle may arise (and trust me obstacles would).
(3) Eagles do not eat clarion i.e. dead things. They feed only on fresh prey. 
Tip: Do not rely on your past success. Keep looking for new frontiers to conquer. Leave your past where it belongs – behind you. There is a reason why Scripture enjoins us not to think we have attained, but to press towards the mark.
(4) Eagles love storms. When clouds gather, the eagle gets excited. The eagle uses the storm’s wind to lift it higher. It gets into a storm for lifting and once atop relaxes to glide above it, thereby resting its wings and the effort required to flap! Thereby finding rest in a storm! Meanwhile, whilst a storm rages, other birds hide away, giving the eagle a free reign of the roost. 
Tip: Face up to your challenges rather than run from them. This will make you emerge stronger and better than you were before. An the classic theory of elastic expansion kicks in. Let me explain – once an elastic band is over stretched, it takes a new form by becoming bigger than before. Storms, well used, can become stepping stones to freedom and/or more enlightenment. Ask Bro. Joseph. 
(5) Mating Ritual: To commit to starting a family with a male eagle, a female eagle sets a commitment test – a fetch ritual. She plunges to earth with the male in hot pursuit. She picks up a twig and then soars back into the air, to a high altitude where she then drops the twig to free fall. The male is required to chase after to retrieve. Is expected to catch the twig in mid-flight, and fetch it back to the female eagle. The female repeats this test over and over again by increasing the drop altitude. 
Where a male is able to catch up and retrieve successively, then and only then, will she accept him as her mate – for life. Why? To the female, the male eagle has shown commitment.
Tip: Whether in private life or in business, you must test and be sure of the commitment of those you partner with. Critical for your long term marital or business survival.
(6) Eagles’ Training Manual. When it is time to let an eaglet out of the nursery nest, the parent Eagle removes the down feathers and soft grass in the nest to inconvenience the eaglet. It then practically pushes the young one over the edge, encouraging the eaglet to exercise its wings! The parent catches and repeats this process until the eaglet is ready to spread its own wings to soar! Amazing!
Tip: Leave your comfort zone, there is no growth there. Worst case scenario, you would have learnt one more way not to do things! Remember the theory of elastic expansion I explained above.
(7) Regeneration: As an Eagle ages, it’s feathers become weak and this slows it down, threatening its survival. At this time, the eagle retires temporarily to a place hidden away in the rocks, far from prying eyes. Whilst there, it plucks out every feather on it’s own body until completely bare. This is a painful process and its body will be covered in blood. It temporarily appears vulnerable to the elements. The eagle however endures and remains in this hiding place until new feathers grow (as the law of regeneration ensures); then it makes a grand re-entry into its habitat. That eagle then gets to live again for a long time! Studies show that an eagle too week to follow through on this process dies in the hiding place!
Tip: We occasionally need to shed old habits, cast aside some limiting relationships, do

away with things that burden us, or adds little or no value to our lives and purpose. 

It is important that we learn to do this with all the ruthlessness it deserves, enduring temporary pain. We need to be able to burn those limiting bridges and move on! Remember, fortune favors the brave.
Dear readers, it is my wish that you to prosper this year. And I know you have it in you to so do. Why don’t you study more on the Eagle and see what other viable lessons you can learn; so that you too can soar to greater heights this year.

2016, GOALS & YOUR ROLE

  Based on reactions to my last post on 2016, Goals & Imagination, I have decided to do a follow up with this title. Many got in touch with us to know why many set goals do not end in result despite engaging their imaginative powers. Some claim this has lead to frustration; while some have given up. I trust that we should be able to address this issue here with the help of our eternal teacher, the Holy Spirit.
First, let me say this straight away – I am a praying person. Those who know me personally know that I love to pray, and by His grace my life is a testament to the efficacy of God’s manifest assistance through prayers; and I remain eternally grateful for this. 
I need to say this because of my MAIN POINT in this piece, which is :- God will not do for man what He has enabled man to do for himself! And this is where most who set goals miss it. Yes, prayers are efficacious, but to succeed (the ultimate function of set goals), you (not God) has more roles to play! Am I saying you should not pray over your goals? No! Am I saying you should not remind God that you have goals set, and need His help? No!! So what exactly am I saying?
Change the manner of your prayers already! As a vessel, I see many prayers that will not be answered by the Almighty, even if He wanted to! For example, when a person prays for God to ‘make me a millionaire’, frustration will soon set it because that is not God’s job to put physical cash in any man’s pocket! In fact, currency is alien to God’s principles! (Topic for another day, maybe) 
The correct prayer should have been for God to ‘open my mind to unique ideas for prosperity’! Reference Jacob in Laban’s employment. Show me where God ‘made him a rich man by depositing cash in his pocket’ as many pray today, and I will keep quiet. Rather, what happened? God gave Jacob a unique idea to get stripped and spotted cattle! That is the pattern through out scripture. 
Next, spend more time working on your goal(s)! It saddens me today that many religious organizations (both Christian and Moslem) encourage adherents to spend more time in places of worship than in working and meditation on their trades, jobs and professions! Or how else do you explain the plethora of religious services on work days and periods when people should be at work! And a times, several times during one day! 
Do you know what this does? It encourages people to lie and cheat; and no one who does both succeeds in a lasting manner, or gets the help of the Almighty God! See, what excuse other than lies would an employee give to his/her employer for their absence from work during working hours at the same time EVERY WEEK, other than to lie? And that is cheating the employer of time that would be paid for! Yet such people want the help of the Almighty who abhors liars? I don’t see it happening! Another thing you need to see my friends on this point, is that the pastor or imam who calls such prayer meetings during working hours is at his/her own job, while you are not!!!! Time that should be spent in creative contemplation is spent in often raucous gatherings! What imaginative thought could be done there? Beat me o. 
Third, you need to conquer your self – every flesh is prone to indiscipline. Trust me, been there, done that! Switch off that gadget, and spend time in contemplation! There is a reason why the biggest earners are the thinkers not the person of brawn! Thinkers put others to work! It is the way of the Almighty. Read the story of recreation again, how much physical effort did the Almighty God exert? Go through the amazing work of the Lord Jesus Christ, how much physical lifting did He do to calm the storm, to feed over 5000 people with 5 loaves and 2 pieces of fish? Even to raise Lazarus, He ordered others to do the physical rolling away of the tomb stone! My dear friend, learn to think – and this requires disciplining your flesh. Switch off that TV set, and pick up a book. Ignore that WIFI and your smart gadgets, just sit down in meditation! Do you have to attend that party – again? Must you go out – again? These are things the flesh luxuriate in. You have to win that battle friend.
In concluding this piece, you will notice that I have avoided mentioning the steps mentioned in my previous post on “2016, Goals & Imagination”, so please go back to them that piece.
