The Two Falcons

 

Once there was a king who received a gift of two magnificent falcons from Arabia. They were peregrine falcons, the most beautiful birds he had ever seen. He gave the precious birds to his head falconer to be trained.

Months passed and one day the head falconer informed the king that though one of the falcons was flying majestically, soaring high in the sky, the other bird had not moved from its branch since the day it had arrived.

The king summoned healers and sorcerers from all the land to tend to the falcon, but no one could make the bird fly. He presented the task to the member of his court, but the next day, the king saw through the palace window that the bird had still not moved from its perch. Having tried everything else, the king thought to himself, “Maybe I need someone more familiar with the countryside to understand the nature of this problem.” So he cried out to his court, “Go and get a farmer.”

The court quickly located the farmer, who came and stood before the king. The king asked him, “How did you make the falcon fly?”

With his head bowed, the farmer said to the king, ” It was very easy, your highness. I simply cut the branch where the bird was sitting.”

We are all made to fly — to realize our incredible potential as human beings. But instead of doing that, we sit on our branches, clinging to the things that are familiar to us. The possibilities are endless, but for most of us, they remain undiscovered. We conform to the familiar, the comfortable, the mundane. So for the most part, our lives are mediocre instead of exciting, thrilling and fulfilling.

So let us learn to destroy the branch of fear we cling to and free ourselves to the glory of flight.

What are You Putting Off for Tomorrow?

Thought for today. What are some things that you keep putting off to do “tomorrow”? Today is all you have right now. Why not do it today?

Be a Winner!

“Roll with the punches! No matter what comes, no matter what life does to you, no matter how hard the blows of failure and defeat land or how many time or for how long–roll with the punches. That’s the secret to success. Take it on you like a champ, roll with them, and then strike back with all that you’ve got in you! No matter how hard you are struck, roll with is and get up to do your best and strike again. That is what makes a WINNER!” — Thirumur David Kiran

The Only One Who Can Make Me Miserable…is ME!!!

“I have come to the amazing conclusion: the only one who can make me miserable is ME! True, the circumstances around me may be rough, but I have the freedom of choice and I can choose to either be miserable of happy. So, if I am going to take all of this effort to make the choice, I might as well make the right choice and be happy!” – Thirumur David Kiran
