Breaking Out Of The Cage That’s KEEPING You From Success

I have a very empowering story to share with you here today… It’ll help you see, just as it did with me, where you are holding your own self back in life… How YOU are actually the one keeping yourself from experiencing greater success, freedom, and fulfillment.  If we really want to reach our highest potential and live a life of growth, beauty, and purpose, we have to break out of our own cages… It’s our responsibility to set OURSELVES free.

Enjoy!

So how do we really do it?  How do we break out of the cages of comfort?  We have to have the courage to let go of our ‘old familiar’ way of living and being, and step with power into the unknown.  We have to be willing to let go of our attachments and creature comforts and trust that, like the parrot, we can fly to greater heights.  If you want success, you have to have the courage to grow and change, adopt new habits, try new things, and step outside of that comfort zone cage you’ve been hanging out in most of your life.

The choice is yours… No one else can make it for you.  Those who have the courage to let go of their old attachments and comforts will grow and evolve rapidly.  Sadly though, most of the population is too afraid of leaving their cages.  The fear of the unknown is too great… It’s ironic that the one thing that will propel us to growth, freedom, and success the fastest is one thing that’s hardest for us to let go of as human creatures.  Are you ready to let go of your fear of the unknown?  Are you ready to courageously leave behind what no longer serves you?  Only the willing create success… Everyone else stays trapped in their self created cages, claiming they want success or freedom, but not willing to pay the price.

Just like the parrot in the story, you have the world at your fingertips…  Have the courage to step into your greatness!   The unknown is where your power truly lies…

To Your Success,

The key to freedom is in your own hand. You just need the courage to unlock the cage.

Hi Katie,
Inspirational as usual.There is another book I read that has helped alot of people find freedom from past hurts.I think it has been the second,most sold copies ever,and it is called’ “the shack”.Presently it is also in the works for a movie.

What you said reminded me of that book.

Thanks for all your contribution.

Phyllis

This is soooo true! I see my clients cling to their current situations, current bodies because if they change their constraints, they don’t really know who they are. It’s been a tremendous mirror for me in my own process of transformation.

That is one of those Indian/enlightenment stories. There are lots of them. Eckhart Tolle learned many of them. They can have a profound effect on some people at some times. There is a saying that actions speak louder than workds.

This story brings to mind all of the excuses I hear of why people can’t do this or do that … I can’t affort to, I’m too busy, etc. All the excuses are really just people clinging to their comfort zone. Great story Katie. Thanks for sharing it with us.

this clearly showed why most people have difficulties giving up their bad habits/things that they are used to.

its not easy to give up things you are used to and start doing things that are completely unkown to you.

its because of the fear of failure.

Wow Katie! I really love all that you share in your videos. This one truly touched my heart because this is something I have been working on in many areas of my life.

Most comforts I have held on to for years I was truly able to let go and overcome. I have just a few more in my life now that I am working on. Comforts that are closer to my heart that would truly impact all aspects of my life. But I WILL do them, especially learning from the story you shared here… so very valuable to me!

Thanks girl! HUGS!

Hey Katie,

I do feel like I am holding myself back… just like your parrot story. Just like an alcoholic, the first step is admitting it… it’s time for me to step out of my comfort zone and create the freedom and success I would like.

Thank you for your encouragement!

I have been really kicking my but out of the comfort zone.

I even went and offered my help to a family that needed help moving their farm. Capturing and moving bulls, cows, and sheep. Feeding pigs, chickens, and geese.

All this in the hot summer weather. Talk about being out of comfort zone.
