Although the story is short it contains a very essential lesson everyone should learn. The story inspires me not just to dream but also to make my dream come true. Well, I am a dreamer, I am somebody full of dreams and I want most of them to come true. Whenever I feel like giving up my dreams I just start thinking of this wonderful story.
" Go forward God knows the measure of your heart."A man found an eagle and put it in the nest of a backyard hen. The eagle hatched with the brood of chickens and grew up with them. All his life the eagle did what the backyard chickens did, thinking he was a backyard chicken, he clucked and cackled. He would thrash his wings and fly a few feet into the air. Years passed and the eagle grew very old.
One day he saw a magnificient bird far above him in the cloudless sky. It glided in greatful majesty among the powerful wind currents, with scracely a beat of its strong golden wings.
The old eagle looked up in awe, "Who's that?", he asked.
"That's the eagle. The king of the birds." , say his neighbor.
"He belong to the sky. We belong to the earth we're chickens."
So the eagle lived and died a chicken, for that's what he thought he was.
