Long ago there was a corn farm in the countryside. It belonged to Mrs. and Mr. Hawks. It was very peaceful around the farm.
Beside the farm there was a smooth cliff. There was a small basin at the edge of the top of that cliff. One day, two eagles built their nest there. They lay their eggs inside the nest.
One day there was an earthquake. Because of the earthquake, one egg fell down into the corn farm. The chickens saw the egg. They took care of it.
Soon, the egg cracked and a beautiful baby eagle was born. But the chickens thought he was a chicken too. So he was raised to be a chicken.
One day, he was playing with the other chickens in the farm when he saw many eagles soaring high near the cliff top.
He said, “Oh! How I wish I could soar like that – high in the sky.”
All chickens roared with laughter and said rudely, “Ha! You are a chicken and chickens do not soar.”
They all teased him and made fun of him.
He continued looking at his mother, father, brothers and sisters high above. After sometime he passed away, still believing himself a chicken.
The Moral Of This Inspirational Story is – You become what you believe you are; so if you dream of becoming an eagle, follow your dreams, not the words of a chicken.
