Eagles in a Storm!

The following is a though-provoking & invigorating ‘forward’ from one of my friends, Dinesh. I added my two pence right at the end.


Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks?

The eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come. When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it.The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm.

When the storms of life come upon us – and all of us will experience them – we can rise above them by setting our minds and our belief to a higher aim. The storms do not have to overcome us. We can allow our higher power to lift us above them.

The higher power you believe in enables us to ride the winds of the storm that bring sickness, tragedy, failure and disappointment in our lives. We can soar above the storm.

Remember, it is not the burdens of life that weigh us down; it is how we handle them.



  1. Always be proactive in gathering information
  2. Find time to process the info and be ready with a response
  3. Carry out your planned response.

Unfortunately, all of us are so caught up in our daily grind; we do not take time to process our data in to information and then weave a response or a strategy. Hence we are always caught being reactive rather than proactive.

Give me your thoughts on how do we become proactive in our daily life?
