WHAT MAKES A LEADER DIFFERENT? A
LOOK AT THE EAGLE
Have you seen an eagle sitting on a
tree or in a high cliff? Noticed how
attentive this bird is to the
surrounding? Eagles are known for
their sharp vision and focus. Not
only that like leaders, you find them
one at a time and they do not flock.
Average people want easy routes for everything but leaders find
challenges as opportunity to shine! Leaders find adventure in
challenges and take these as an opportunity to show the tail light to
those who follow them. I remember one of our very good family friends
and my mentor in business said, “Everybody goes through challenges
when they arrive, but a leader grows through it.” That attribute of an
Eagle is what I found very fascinating. I compare challenges with the
stormy weather where all the other birds hide in the leaves and
branches of the trees for safety. In case of storm, the Eagle uses the
storm’s wind to lift it higher. Once it finds the wind of the storm, the
eagles uses the raging storm to lift him above the clouds. This gives the
eagle an opportunity to glide and rest its wings. What a powerful way
to use the power of storm in its favor to touch new heights!
While these traits of an Eagle is good enough a reason to compare

with leadership abilities and integrity in character in bunch. We find
them one at a time and they just don’t show up, we need to look out
for them; we need to keep the search ON and once in awhile we find
