Soar Like an Eagle

There’s a legend about an American Indian who, while walking through the forest, came upon and Eagle’s egg. He searched for an Eagle’s nest, but none was to be found. In a clearing, he noticed a bunch of chickens. Carrying the egg over the clearing, he set it down in the middle of the chickens. Two days later, this baby eagle broke through its shell. In the weeks, months and years that followed, the baby eagle began mirroring the actions of the chickens. Pecking here. Hopping there. And it became – a way of life.

Many years later, he was walking down a road with one of the elder chickens. Looking high up in the sky, he saw this bird flying with such grace and dignity. His heart started to pound. He felt a rush of energy flow through his body that he had never experienced before. Turning to the elder chicken, he said excitedly: “What kind of a bird is that?”

The elder chicken replied: “That is an eagle. I’ve never seen one up close, but it’s the most magnificent bird in the universe. It can spot a storm coming five miles ahead, and it knows instinctively whether to go over it, under it, or around it. It can spot a fish in a stream from a mile up in the sky, and swish down and scoop it up.”

Seeing a sparkle in the eagle’s eye, he said: “Don’t get any crazy ideas. You’re nothing but a deformed chicken. That’s all you ever have been, and it’s all you ever will be.” But the eagle couldn’t ignore what was happening inside his body, mind, and spirit. He started to run down the road, spread his wings, lifted his feet off the ground, and began to soar soar to heights he never believed were possible.

Without hero’s we are all ordinary people. We don’t know how far we can go. Are you ready to SOAR LIKE AN EAGLE, to heights you never imagined? How much money have you wasted on your addiction in the last five years? Are you willing to commit a tiny fraction of that, $30.00, to invest in your recovery, by accepting the 30 DAY CHALLENGE? Start running! You have nothing to lose but your cravings for pills, alcohol or drugs.
