When we soar with Eagles

Everyone is unique. Everyone is special. We just have to look for that aspect of ‘specialness’ in them and them help them to fly. Here is a wonderful video clip to pay homage to that thought.

Last week we witnessed the amazing exploits of Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner who made history when he set a record for freefalling, plummeting 24 miles from the stratosphere to land safely. Just like Neil Armstrong our pioneer moon walker who recently passed away, Felix could not have achieved this without years and years of preparation and practice and without the support and backing of a legion of ‘believers’ over that time. I particularly loved the story of the previous record holder of over 30 years, Joseph Kittinger II, who played a major part in Felix’s success and who, at 84, was back at the control base as capsule communicator willing Felix on to break his own longstanding record. Didn’t you just love Joseph’s one finger salute to all of those who said Felix couldn’t break the speed of sound? I did. Sure it was a risk, as endeavours such as this often are. But it was calculated and planned over many years until the time was right, the dreamer was ready, and the conditions were perfect. And then the dream took flight, on the shoulders of those who believed in that dreamer and his dream.

So today in my blog I would like to pay homage to all the dreamers out there, and more particularly to those who support them in achieving their dream. In this life as we know it, I believe nothing of note is ever achieved without the support and encouragement of those around us… especially at work. As I said before, I believe that everyone is unique, and therefore it behoves us to find that uniqueness in them and help them to take flight. Then one day it will be our turn.

Here is a lovely reminder of the essence of soaring with eagles. It is not the video of Felix’s amazing feat. I guess most of you will already have seen that brief clip. It is still related to this topic, but for me, it encapsulates the essence of soaring and being in alignment, as part of the natural order of things. I loved watching this You Tube video. I hope you do too. I revelled in its beautiful message of being at ‘one’ with our environment when we soar. It is entitled “ParaHawking.” Enjoy!


Until next time… Let’s seek to understand more and judge less.   Have a great week – Brian

    Write more, that’s all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
    you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what you’re talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be
    giving us something enlightening to read?

    • Hi Alicia
      I appreciate your feedback and thank you for that. I think you will notice if you read all or any of the other blogs I upload weekly there is a huge amount of personal observation and insight that I like to share. I think I may have only uploaded about two or three videos over the whole time I have been writing for a year and a half. The comments and feedback that I receive seem to support that what I share seems to ‘hit the mark.’ I shared this video because it touched me and I felt others would like it too. Cheers – Brian

    First of all I would like to say terrific blog!

    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!

    • Hi there – I set myself the task of writing at the same time every week. Before that I don’t think too hard about it unless I happen to see something that takes my fancy and put it aside so that I have it nearby when I am ready to write. Once I sit down at my computer at the same time each week it tends to trigger my brain into action… and then I trust my instincts and go with the flow. I then write as if I am talking directly to each of you. I tend to then leave the finished article a few hours before coming back to it and editing it or tidying it up. By the way I don’t write directly into my blog post, I type into notepad and then print it out and read it over an hour or so later and make changes as I feel is needed. Finally I cut and paste the notepad copy into my new post page and add relevant images. That’s what works for me. I find typing it into notepad as if I am talking takes the pressure off me to write well directly into the post.
