Soar Like an Eagle

When you soar like an eagle,
you attract hunters.

Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. 
Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

1 Peter 5:8 NASB

When people are unreasonable, illogical,
self-centered and arrogant,
love them anyway. 
When people insist that your goodness
contains selfish ulterior motives,
do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win both friends and enemies. 
People may become jealous of you. 
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank,
you will be both honorable and vulnerable. 
Some will seek to twist your words against you.
Be honest and frank anyway.
If you do good today, some may forget about it by tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
If you show yourself to be a big person with great ideas, don't be surprised if you are opposed by small people with closed minds.
Think big anyway.
What you have spent years building,
some may seek to destroy overnight.
Build anyway.
Mark Twain once said,
"Always do right. 
This will gratify most people, and astonish the rest!"
