The wingspan of an eagle can be up to seven feet. The eagle was built to soar high above the earth. The eagle was also built to withstand a storm. When other birds seek shelter during a storm, the eagle runs into the storm. The storm is used to lift the eagle higher. The eagle has the capability to fly above the storm. When you allow your problems to lift you higher, you also will become an eagle.
Pigeons do not soar at high altitudes. This allows them to see the world from a lower angle. Surround yourself with people who are going to lift you higher in life. Proverbs 13:20 says, “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise.” Choose your friends wisely. Remember, good people bring out the good in other people. Friends will have an influence on your success in life. Be careful with who you surround yourself with… when was the last time you saw an eagle flying with pigeons? If you associate with pigeons, you will never fly with the eagles.
