LIFE LESSONS FROM NATURE: Is Your Past Greater Than Your Present?

More on “Life Lessons from Nature – 8 Principles of an Eagle”

I was speaking with someone a few days back and he kept telling me with pride about all the jobs he did in the past. Some were jobs he did 5-10 years ago but those were the only things he wished to talk about. “What are you doing now?” I almost asked him, but I let him finish his stories.

Principle No (3) : 

Eagles do not eat dead things.

They don’t revisit their past kill.

They feed only on fresh prey.

LO Feb Eagle

Many people constantly boast about their past achievements. Others due to fear, keep the spoils  of their past achievement in case they don’t achieve as much in the future.

“The day your yesterday consistently becomes more glorious and successful than your today and tomorrow, is the day you begin to die” – The Catalyst

 

Lesson No 3 from Nature: 

Like the eagle, do not rely on your past success, keep looking for new frontiers to conquer. Leave your past where it belongs, in the past. Celebrate your achievements, trash them and move on to do new things.

“Complacency is born the day you settle it in your heart that your GREATEST achievements happened in your past” – The Catalyst
