The Eagle and the Jackdaw
One day, an eagle was flying high above the forest when he noticed a jackdaw resting on a limb and looked up at him with envy.
The jackdaw called out, "Hey, Eagle!" "Why are you so elevated? Surely it must be lonely up there by oneself."
The eagle answered, "Oh, it's not at all lonely." "I enjoy being able to see everything from atop this hill. Moreover, I am constructed for flight over the air. It is my purpose in life."
The jackdaw moaned as he looked down at his own sparrow-like wings. "I wish I could soar as high as you," he remarked.
The eagle stated, "Well, if you wish to fly high, you must strengthen your wings." "You cannot only sit on a branch and expect to soar like I do. You must put forth the necessary work and effort."
The jackdaw nodded and took flight to practice his flying abilities. As he labored diligently and persisted in his efforts, he began to ascend gradually and steadily.
The moral of this story is that if we want to accomplish something, we must work diligently and be willing to exert ourselves. We can overcome any hurdle and accomplish our goals with sufficient effort and resolve.
