“Come to the edge of the nest,” said the mother eagle to her babies.


The three eaglets peered over and looked down, daring not to go too far near the edge.


“We are afraid,” they replied, as they hid under the safety of their mother’s comfortable wing.


“Come here,” she encouraged. “And I will help you.”


They came and with a loving, watchful eye, the mother eagle gently pushed the young eaglets out of their nests.


And with a courageous spirit, the eaglets flew upward and onward to fulfill their destined calling.


In our journey through life, like the eaglet, we were created to soar upward and onward to new, exciting experiences and a meaningful future. So take a step out of your comfort zone. Extend out; reach ahead, stretch further than where you are today, to get to where you desire to be tomorrow.


What really matters to you?


Have you clearly defined what you would like in your life?


Now, do you believe you can attain it?


Factors may be weighing against you, but do not be constrained by your circumstances.

Sometimes, we may be impelled or pushed out of a comfortable place to stretch us into a new terrain of blessings, where the outcome is far better than we could ever have imagined.


Many have found that past difficulties have inspired them to their greatest achievements. For the hardships that we face can provide us with a chance to discover who we really are, what we are made of, what we’re destined to become and share with others.

Whatever you aspire to do, whatever you want to be, you can accomplish it.

Perhaps, everywhere you turn, you’ve been hit with ongoing troubles. But don’t be swept away with the notion that, “It’s over for me now,” “I have missed my chance,” or “I’ve made too many mistakes to succeed.” Let go of previous disappointments and forgive those who may have hurt you. It’s not too late or too early to transform your situation for the better.


I believe that the same concept holds true when we encounter setbacks. Despite what’s happened, we have to keep on moving forward! So don’t stop, or think a past difficulty is the end. Learn from challenging experiences and keep on moving forward. Remember, just one ‘yes,’ one ‘opportunity’ one ‘idea’ or one ‘person,’ can turn past sorrows into present joys.

Today, assess your heart’s desires. What would you pursue if anything were possible?


Get a pencil and a sheet of paper and sit down and make a list of your aspirations.


Reach as high as your imagination will take you. And jot down dates in which your desired goals should be accomplished, believing and affirming daily their realization.


Just as an eagle soars far above the plains below, higher and higher into the azure sky, you have further to go on your journey. Get your enthusiasm back. God is guiding you, and there are infinite possibilities ahead. So, let them unfold. A whole, new, clear glorious life lies before you.
