Don't spend major time with minor people. If there are people in your life that continually disappoint you, break promises, stomp on your dreams, too judgmental, have different values and don't have your back during difficult times...that is not a friend.
Sometimes in life as you grow, your friends will either grow or go. Surround yourself with people who reflect values, goals, interests and lifestyle.
Remember the old adage "Birds of a feather flock together. If you're an eagle, don't hang around chickens: Chickens can't Fly!
Attributes of an Eagle:
1- Eagles fly alone at high altitude and not with sparrows or other small birds. No other bird can got to the height of the eagle.
2- Eagles have strong vision. They have the ability to focus on something up to five kilometres away. When an eagle sites his prey, he narrows his focus on it and set out to get it. No matter the obstacles.
3- Eagles love the storm. When clouds gather, the eagles get excited. The eagle uses the storm’s wind to lift it higher.We can use the storms of life to rise to greater heights. Achievers relish challenges and use them profitably.
4- The Eagle tests before it trusts. When a female eagle meets a male and they want to mate, she flies down to earth with the male pursuing her and she picks a twig. She flies back into the air with the male pursuing her.Once she has reached a height high enough for her, she lets the twig fall to the ground and watches it as it falls. The male chases after the twig. The faster it falls, the faster he chases it. He has to catch it before it!
5- Eagles do not eat dead things. They feed only on fresh prey. Vultures eat dead animals, but eagles will not. Be careful with what you feed your eyes and ears with!
But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength, They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not get tired, They shall walk and not faint.Isaiah 40:31
May this encourage you always.
