“As long as the hummingbird had not abandoned the land, somewhere there were still flowers, and they could all go on.”Leslie Marmon Silko
The animal kingdom can teach us many things. From trusting your instincts to being truthful—our furry (and not so furry) friends are often more intelligent than us.
This day we look at hummingbirds—one of nature’s most fascinating creatures.
Do you know that there are over 300 species of hummingbirds? The smallest hummingbirds on earth are the Bee Hummingbirds.
In life, there are many pathways.
Most of us have learned one of the most crucial lessons: life is not a straight path. There are ebbs and flows, which are natural. Hummingbirds fly forward, side to side, backward, and even upside down.
They can navigate the world like any other bird or animal thanks to their skill. As humans, we can do the same.
Setting a goal and sitting back will not get you there; choosing a path will.
Don’t let anyone hold you back.
Hummingbirds are tiny, but don’t let that fool you. Instead of their small stature being a limitation, they use it to their advantage. They can move around in several ways. Unlike other birds, hummingbirds can be fast, flying to 30 mph and diving up to 60 mph.
Use this as a revelation! Instead of focusing on your flaws or weaknesses, try to take advantage of your strengths. Nobody is perfect.
Be who you are.
Hummingbirds are tiny creatures, but it may be surprising to learn how aggressive they can be when threatened. It will fight to protect its territory.
If somebody takes things of yours or anger you, know when to stand your ground! Be who you are.
When you believe in who you are, you have deep-down peace of mind because you are honest at the most basic level. It gives you prowess when you respond from the place of your deepest self.
Make the most of every opportunity.
While hummingbirds are not giant creatures in nature, they have an enormous appetite and eat 77 times more than the average human. Fascinating, isn’t it?
Now, the message we should take from hummingbirds being big eaters is that we should have an appetite for learning and growing. Be hungry!
You won’t always be able to do what you enjoy or love, and some tasks in life are dull and demanding. Still, approach life with quiet confidence. Don’t let opportunities that resonate with you fly by. Seize them.
There is a lot we can learn from hummingbirds. With their courageous hearts and efficient way of living, they are a superb role model for us humans.
