Tonight at She Speaks To Inspire:  

[Link Removed] talks about the analogy of training a hawk.  

When a man goes to train a hawk. He will have a glove, some meat, and a rope tied to the hawk. After a long enough time of flying around with a rope preventing the hawk from going anywhere far, the hawk will seize to try. At this point, the trainer removes the rope, and the vast majority of the time, this now free bird of prey will continue to fly no further than the limit of the rope, which had previously held it. The hawk is now free to move, but in its mind it is not able to go past the length of the rope which held it.

Justin is a wise soul in a 23 year old body. He’s a blogger who decided to change his mind and elevate his life. Here is his story. A few years ago I had an idea that terrified me. Some day I am likely to get married. In that marriage, I am likely to have kids. Any kids that grow up with me as a dad, are likely to pick up my bad habits ... *screams from the sheer horror*. Thus launched a quest of self-improvement. When I started this quest I quickly found that I couldn't change my bad habits all at once. Every time I started to get somewhere I'd stress out and end up right back where I was. Finally I tried something that worked! I slowed down. I started learning to be patient with myself, and little by little I've made change. I've been at it for three years now. I am still in this process. I have a long way to go. I have learned a few things on the way. For example I have: * Re-prioritized my life * Improved my self-image * Improved my overall attitude * Started eating healthier (semi-vegetarian) * Read a ton of books * Stopped making excuses for my goals * Improved my people skills * Surrounded myself with positive influences * Overall become a more genuine me * Started taking my dreams seriously * Diminished the power of excuses in my life * Greatly Increased my focus Perhaps, something I've learned can help you make changes in your life, and achieve the goals that are important to you.
