It’s very easy to forget that Penguins are birds. They been given the challenge of being flightless, a perceived disadvantage as a bird, and created into one of its greatest abilities.
And instead of taking to the skies, Little Penguin has used the wings she has been given, to dive into the waters.
Little Penguins spends approx 80% of her life in water hunting for food and has adapted extremely well to this life. Moulting her feathers once a year and having a specific oil to coat her feathers, Little Penguin is asking you to consider using what society may deem as a ‘disability’ and switch that into your super powered ability.
There are always ways in which you can swim around or adapt to a challenge. It may take some time to accept but once you acknowledge the difference you bring to the world, the quicker you will be able to strengthen the skills you have inside you, to use it as your ‘ability’.
Honing in on your abilities and being aware that disadvantages can be your actual advantage in any situation, will assist in building your self confidence to strive for your goals or catch of the day!
Little Penguin may be small but they are determined, focused and persistent.
