Have you ever watched Eagles closely? They are truly magnificent creatures. They are keen, wise, brave and audacious. Its vision, strength and flight is unmatchable.There is a lot to learn and be inspired from this fascinating bird. It’s traits intriguingly coincide with what may be the very essence & pre-requisite for a leader or entrepreneur to thrive.
Eagles are not scavengers.They don’t feast on the dead.They take risk and hunt for their prey. As entrepreneurs & leaders, it’s very important to steer clear of inertia and comfort zone and to constantly press forward for more. One must possess a never satisfying hunger and an unquenched thirst to grow and innovate. A plunge out of safety into the abyss with the faith that you’ll find a way is the only way to life.
Eagles love the storm. When clouds gather, they get excited because they will use the storm winds as propellers to fly even higher while the other birds seek safe shelters and hide in. Quite similarly for entrepreneurs it ultimately boils down to embrace ambiguity and to transform every adversity into opportunity.
When an eagle sites its prey, all it does is narrows its focus and sets out to get it. No matter what the obstacles on its way are, it will not budge focus from the prey until it grabs it. Similarly, in an entrepreneurial journey clear vision and focus is all that is required for success. More than 85 percent of business’s fail because of failure to apply the right course of actions to the thought process. No worthwhile idea holds any relevance with the ability to execute. Application is discipline and integral to strategy.
Eagles fly alone at high altitudes which no other bird can conquer. As an Entrepreneur, or leader when you are soaring high you will experience numerous forces that will try and pull you down.There will be disagreements and hurdles at every step. As an eagle you must not indulge in these wasteful confrontations and selectively choose your battles. One must rise above the chaos and the noise and remain undeterred by reckless provocation.
So, refuse to be average, let your spirits soar high and be ‘an Eagle in the world of crows’.
