Today, as we have been doing since the beginning of February on our daily Wisdom Nuggets For Today, we continue with the theme of the month : Life Lessons from Nature. And all through this week we have been looking at 8 Principles of an eagle, inspired by Dr. Myles Munroe. If you have missed the previous principles, please check my social media pages to follow them. We can all learn from these critical principles.
8 Principles of an Eagle – Principle No (5) – COMMITMENT
When a female eagle meets a male and they want to mate, she flies down to earth with the male pursing her and she picks up a twig. She flies back into the air with the male pursuing her.Once she has reached a height high enough for her, she lets the twig fall to the ground and watches it as it falls.
The male chases after the twig. The faster it falls, the faster he chases until he reaches it and has to catch it before it falls to the ground, then bring it back to the female eagle.
The female eagle grabs the twig and flies to a much higher altitude, and then drops the twig for the male to chase.
This goes on for hours, with the height increasing until the female eagle is assured that the male eagle has mastered the art of picking up the twig which shows commitment, then and only then, will she allow him to mate with her!
Lesson No 5 from Nature:
Whether in your personal life or in business, one should test the commitment of the people one intends to go into relationships/partnership with.
“Good relationships are built on sacrifice, hard work, consistency and dedication to each other” – The Catalyst
“Don’t give your CHERRY to just anybody; find someone that’s serious and committed” – The Catalyst
