It’s Up To You| Dream Big

A wise man once said ” The path to greatness you can’t tread without some heavy load ,so work your hardest and your best, there is no easy road.

Here’s a story to inspire you..

A group of eaglets were preparing for their first solo flight from the nest. This was an important day for the eaglets. It was the confidence builder many of them needed to fulfill their destiny.

“How far can I travel?” Asked one of the eaglets. “How far can you see ?” responded the master eagle.

“How high can I fly?” quizzed the young eaglet.”How far can you stretch your wings?” asked the master eagle.

“How long can I fly?” the eaglet persisted. “How far is the horizon?” the mentor rebounded.

“How much should I dream?” asked the eaglet. “How much can you dream!” smiled the older, wiser eagle.

“How much can I achieve?” the young eagle continued. ‘How much can you believe? ” the old eagle challenged.

Frustrated by the banter, the young eagle demanded, “Why don’t you answer my questions?”

“I did responded the master eagle”.

” Yes, but you answered them with questions.”

” I answered them the best I could.”

“But you’re the master eagle. You’re supposed to know everything. If you can’t answer these questions, then who can?”

“You !” The old wise eagle reassured.

“Me? How?” the young eagle was confused.

“No one can tell you how high to fly or how much to dream. It’s different for each eagle. Only God and you know how far you’ll go. No one on this earth knows your potential or what’s in your heart. You alone will answer that. The only thing that limits you is the edge of your imagination.”

The young eagle puzzled by this and asked, “What should I do?”

“Look at the horizon, spread your wings and fly.”
