The Eagle That Died A Chicken

A man found an eagle egg and hid it in a chicken pen. The egg hatched and the eagle grew up alongside a bunch chickens.

Then one day the aging eagle looked up into the sky and saw a bird majestically gliding in the wind. He looked up in awe “who’s that?” He asked. “That’s the eagle, the king of the birds” the chickens said. “They belong in the sky and we belong on earth – we’re chickens.”

And the eagle lived and died a chicken because that’s what he thought he was.

Don’t let others tell you what you can’t do. Don’t let the limitations of others limit your vision. If you could just believe in yourself, you could achieve what you never thought possible.
