Success Secrets of Mother Nature: Red-Tailed Hawk Part 2: Trust and Faith

In yesterday’s post, I told you about one of the Red Tailed hawks that lives in my neighborhood (click here to be taken to the post). Even though I didn’t see the hawk today, it stayed on my mind all day.

I kept picturing the way the hawk seemed so carefree and how it playfully wheeled in the sky as it skimmed along on the thermals. Never once did it over exert itself–or even exert itself, for that matter! But yet, it soared!

To my amazement, at one point I noticed the hawk was climbing HIGHER in the sky!

There was no desperate flapping of wings slinging feathers everywhere, and there was no squawking and carrying on while it strained to go higher.

No, none of that!

With a simple and easy tilt of its wings, the hawk glided higher in the sky!

This got me to thinking….

The hawk did what it did best–in this case, gliding and soaring. Not once did it worry or get frustrated and curse its bad luck at having been born a hawk. Not once did it try to catch prey like a bear or a shark would.


Not once.

Instead, the hawk trusted that it had what it took to be a hawk. And it trusted that with observation and patience, opportunities that were right for it would come along. And, when they did, the hawk took immediate action!

Your homework is to trust and have faith in the fact that you have what it takes to be you and that Nature, events, and opportunities are supporting you in being you. Trust and have faith in the fact that you also have what it takes to make your dreams come true and that Nature, events, and opportunities are conspiring to help you live the life of your dreams.

Like the hawk, be patient, be observant, and do what you naturally do best. When opportunities line up, take action!

You can do it, I know you can!

I am very proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,
