The Turkey Learn To Fly

One day the leader eagle wanted to teach the turkey how to fly gracefully in the sky as they do. They get together at the top of the cliff and started the lesson. After teaching how to use their wings they began to flap it together and fly. To start with! They must jump off the cliff. The altitude is so high that the turkey must have too much courage to try. When learn something new, you have to apply it and the turkey did. Not all birds with wings can fly like an eagle and that is what the turkey wants to learn. Doubt and fear arise knowing that there is a big difference in physical capability and appearance, but it doesn’t matter because they really have to try and learn.

The leader eagle find out that the turkey is afraid to jump on the cliff; he knows that they can fly but they have to try. So he pushed the turkey on the cliff like what they do on their baby eagle.

You don’t know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. – Bob Marley

The turkey is falling down so he must flap their wings to fly or else he will die. It was the great decision, you never know unless you try to do it. Just before he hit the ground he manages to fly and does what the leader eagles explain. It is a great success on the part of the turkey, he discovers that soaring above the skies is great and have much more places to discover. The lesson has ended and the turkey are so thankful to the leader eagles. Without your help leader eagle we can never fly high in the sky.

But! Then the turkey went home walking not realizing that he already know how to fly.

If you ask us first you probably crossover easily and not been drown.

Learning from the experience of others is the shortest way to success. Following the footsteps of successful people is the fastest way to become successful.

For One Who Works Hard

One morning I wasted nearly an hour watching a tiny ant carry a huge feather cross my back terrace. Several times it was confronted by obstacles in its path and after a momentary pause it would make the necessary detour.

For the one who works hard

At one point the ant had to negotiate a crack in the concrete about 10mm wide. After brief contemplation the ant laid the feather over the crack, walked across it and picked up the feather on the other side then continued on its way.

I was fascinated by the ingenuity of this ant, one of God's smallest creatures. It served to reinforce the miracle of creation. Here was a minute insect, lacking in size yet equipped with a brain to reason, explore, discover and overcome. But this ant, like the two-legged co-residents of this planet, also shares human failings.

After some time the ant finally reached its destination - a flower bed at the end of the terrace and a small hole that was the entrance to its underground home. And it was here that the ant finally met its match. How could that large feather possibly fit down small hole?

Of course it couldn't. So the ant, after all this trouble and exercising great ingenuity, overcoming problems all along the way, just abandoned the feather and went home.

The ant had not thought the problem through before it began its epic journey and in the end the feather was nothing more than a burden.

Isn't OUR LIFE like that?

We worry about our family; we worry about money or the lack of it, we worry about work, about where we live, about all sorts of things. These are all burdens - the things we pick up along life's path and lug them around the obstacles and over the crevasses that life will bring, only to find that at the destination they are useless and we can't take them with us.
