Story: Unforgettable Story

Hi Good day!
Came across 2 instances today about a person relying on others to tell them their own worth.

One was my friend who thought, she got the job by luck instead of she deserved it.

Next was my sister who was in the dumps & couldn't write a test she was well prepared for coz one of the professors gave the class a scathing lecture about how ungrateful a few of them were towards their studies,parents,teachers...

I am going to be spouting quotes here now:

If you dont think you are worth it, how will the Universe know what to give you.
Loreal products have a perfect punch line for this: Because I am worth it ! :)

No one can insult or hurt you without your permission.- Gandhiji

A favourite quote from a school orientations session:
I am Me and I am good, Coz God makes no Junk!

Had added this in the first few blogposts:

So since no 1 can tell you that you are Bad, nor can anyone tell you what you can achieve? how high can you reach?

Here is a short story from a book Simple Truths has on sale:

Unforgettable Story

The nest of young eagles hung on every word as the Master Eagle described his exploits. This was an important day for the eaglets. They were preparing for their first solo flight from the nest. It was the confidence builder many of them needed to fulfill their destiny.

"How far can I travel?" asked one of the eaglets.
"How far can you see?" responded the Master Eagle.
"How high can I fly?" quizzed the young eaglet.
"How far can you stretch your wings?" asked the old eagle.
"How long can I fly?" the eaglet persisted.
"How far is the horizon?" the mentor rebounded.
"How much should I dream?" asked the eaglet.
"How much can you dream?" smiled the older, wiser eagle.
"How much can I achieve?" the young eagle continued.
"How much can you believe?" the old eagle challenged.

Frustrated by the banter, the young eagle demanded, "Why don't you answer my questions?"
"I did."
"Yes. But you answered them with questions."

"I answered them the best I could."
"But you're the Master Eagle. You're supposed to know everything. If you can't answer these questions, who can?"
"You." The old wise eagle reassured.
"Me? How?" the young eagle was confused.
"No one can tell you how high to fly or how much to dream. It's different for each eagle. Only God and you know how far you'll go. No one on this earth knows your potential or what's in your heart. You alone will answer that. The only thing that limits you is the edge of your imagination."

The young eagle puzzled by this asked, "What should I do?"

"Look to the horizon, spread your wings, and fly."

Tom Reilly wrote this beautiful short story that I share in The Power of Attitude. I thought that it was an unforgettable way to communicate that our potential in life is only limited by our heart and our dreams.
