Crows and Eagles

If the crows evaluate an eagle on his flying skills, this is what the report will say "Abnormal values. Outside the reference range. Overreaches and too ambitious. Social misfit. Needs therapy."

Having said that, not everyone who fails the crows' aviation test is an eagle.
But no eagle will ever pass the crows' aviation test.

Be careful where you go to prove yourself. Be careful how you interpret failure.
Failure by itself does not make you a misunderstood genius.

A vast majority of people aspire to be the proverbial eagle in all spheres of life - professional and personal. Sadly most fail the crow's test but do not become the eagle they so much want to be.
To be able to measure one's own success is truly a tall order. I guess that is why we are just following Munnabhai's diktat - Lage Raho Munnabhai.
Cheers..Have a nice day

hi GB: Haan.. that's what I meant to say.. today, far too many ppl believe, when they fail, that they are eagles in a world of crows. But that may not be true!
