EAGLE¶S CHARACTERISTICS Imagine being at a seminar or a meeting waiting for your favorite speaker or author to take the stage

and the host comes to the mic and announces someone other than who you came to see. Or maybe you¶re at a concert; you¶ve been waiting weeks to see your favorite artist. You bought the tickets the first day they went on sale and you have to wait for all the other opening acts to come on first. I mean they¶re ok, but that¶s not who you came to see.

It wouldn¶t even dawn on you to be afraid because your instinct is to protect that which you love and cherish. Well, that child is your vision, your dreams, your legacy and that attacker is the human emotion of fear. You have to be fearless and attack fear; no matter how large it is before it attacks your future. Tenacious ± An eagle looks for and flies into storms. As storms approach, lesser birds head for cover, but the eagle spreads its wings and mounts upon the powerful winds, soaring to great heights. Eagles actually use the storm to lift them.
