“The Lizard and the Eagle”
Part of us wants to fly, another part is terrified of that and wants to be comfortably on the ground, preferably under a cozy rock!
Let’s call this fear-driven part “The Lizard” and the growth driven part, “The Eagle”.
The Lizard is all about here and now – change is scary! The Lizard isn’t creative, so it can’t see how better can come and resists growth. It wants to freeze up, posture, fight, run away and be distracted. Anything but personal freedom as your source of meaning. Hedonism, fantasy, drama, tribalism, fundamentalism – these belong to the Lizard.
The Eagle is self-mastery. Owning yourself, so you stop slaving to everyone and everything else. It’s facing risk. It is about making dreams into realities, moved by the vision your highest self. Gratitude, joy and courage belong to the Eagle.
So which rules you?
These terms illustrate the differences between those who choose to live more each day and those who choose to die more each day.
We’re driven from within by our chosen focus – do we believe in our abilities and potential? Have we accepted the false gospel of self-doubt? It’s true that “What you see is what you get”…but where you look is what you’ll see! You can look wherever, so you can get whatever.
Don’t get frustrated – be patient. Stay motivated because Your Best Is Still Ahead! Let the Lizard hide under rocks – and You choose to fly, fearless Eagle.
