1. Eagle flight

inspirational short stories with moral lesson

Once upon a time, an eagle's egg came between the hen's eggs. A few days later, chickens came out of those eggs, the eagle's baby was also one of them. They started growing up among them.

He would do what the rest of the chick did, play around here and there in the soil, pimple and eat the same way throughout the day. Like the rest of the chicks, he too could fly just a little higher, and would come down with flapping wings.

Then one day he saw an eagle flying in the open sky, the eagle was flying fearlessly. Then he asked the rest of the chicks, "Who is that magnificent bird flying high?" You can fly because you are a chicken! ”The eagle child accepted this truth and never tried to be like that. 

He lived like chicks all his life, and died without knowing his true strength one day.

Friends, many of us live a second-class life like that eagle without knowing our true potential, the mediocrity around us also makes us mediocre. We forget that we are out of our possibilities. Purna is a creature. Nothing is impossible for us in this world, but still we miss such a big chance of leading an average life.

inspirational short stories with moral

There may be days when you get up in the morning and things aren’t the way you had hoped they would be. That’s when you have to tell yourself that things will get better. There are times when people disappoint you and let you down.

But those are the times when you must remind yourself to trust your own judgements and opinions, to keep your life focused on believing in yourself.

There will be challenges to face and changes to make in your life, and it is up to you to accept them. Constantly keep yourself headed in the right direction for you. It may not be easy at times, but in those times of struggle you will find a stronger sense of who you are.

So when the days come that are filled with frustration and unexpected responsibilities, remember to believe in yourself and all you want your life to be. Because the challenges and changes will only help you to find the goals that you know are meant to come true for you.

Keep Believing in Yourself!
