“The beast in me is caged by frail and fragile bars.” Johnny Cash
Keep this in mind when you think that you cannot escape whatever is holding back the inner beast inside of you. The bars that you are behind are the fears, doubts, and failures of yourself and others that have “strengthened” and “hardened” over time due to the fact that you allowed for it to happen. Let me explain how you got these bars established:
- It started with yourself or someone else telling you that you cannot achieve your goals or overcome the obstacle that is in front of you. After hearing it enough, you start to believe that you cannot do it.
- From those fears, doubts will come in to prevent you from trying or even cause you to stumble and fail because you have been mentally sabotaged by those same fears.
- Once you have quit or failed enough times, you start to strengthen and harden the bars that prevent you from trying anything new or overcoming obstacles.
The “Final” Verdict: You have mentally and physically sentenced your inner beast behind these bars for failing you. Here is the actual reality and problem with your verdict:
- The actually reality is that you are sentencing your inner beast behind these “bars” because you allowed for yourself to be sabotaged by yourself, something, or someone else.
- Your inner beast is suffering because you do not trust it to come out and propel you to success.
- You are suffering because instead of spreading belief in yourself and others, you are now spreading fear and doubt in yourself and others.
You do not have to accept this “final” verdict that you have placed your inner beast under!
It may be hard to believe this if you have experienced failure enough times, but here is why you do not have to accept this verdict:
- Those bars you built can be broken by you if you allow for yourself to break them.
- With the help of a good support system and your confidence, you can ensure that your inner beast will not fail you in your desire of achieving your goals and overcoming obstacles.
- You have too much on the line to let yourself, someone, or something hold your inner beast back from running strong and powerful in your life.
I encourage you to release your inner beast from captivity and allow for it to do what it is supposed to do in your life. It will take you on a journey of ups and downs, but as long as you believe in yourself, have a good plan, and keep a good support system of positive people, your inner beast will take you where you need to go in life. Let’s remember that your inner beast cannot perform behind your bars of fear and doubt; it must be released into the world so that it can bring you closer to success!
I have some questions based on my previous that tie into this very thing. Give it some thought and I would love to hear what you think on this matter.
My final question for you: WHEN WILL YOU RELEASE YOUR INNER BEAST FROM CAPTIVITY?
