What Egg Are You? Find Out Before It Destroys You!

“If you crack an egg from the outside, it brings death to the egg. If the egg cracks from the inside, it brings life to the egg. The greatest things in life come from the inside.” – Unknown

When I first heard this quote over the radio, I was mystified, for it is eloquent, straightforward and simple. Although I am sure that this quote can be attributed to someone great, I lack the resources to research and confirm this. Yet, you might be asking yourself, “Brett, how can you be lacking the resources when you manage to post on a blog from within prison?” Well, posting on here is a process of copy and pasting from an email correspondence I share with someone, for other than that, I live in the dark ages. Of typewriters and snail-mail. Thus, if you know who this quote is by, please let me know!

Moving forward, this analogy inspired me to reflect on the time I have been imprisoned thus far. You see, I use to be the egg that would crack from the outside. The egg that was full of death and destruction. I was consumed by the superficial powers of greed, prestige and status. The powers cracking my egg from the outside. While in that world, true personal growth and development was not sustainable. And it never will. I thought I was flourishing, and the abundance of cash in my safe only reinforced this false sense of perception.

However, this perspective couldn’t be any farther from the truth, and after years of self-reflection in exile, I’m just beginning to realize and harness this new profound view of the world. One that is all about being intentional and staying true to oneself. Emerging from the inside of our eggs while developing walls and filters to prevent all of the negative outside influences from consuming us. Changing us from who we really are. To do so, we must invest in ourselves and build a strong inner foundation.

I too can now say that the greatest things in life come from the inside. That it is not some bullshit advice you read in a self-help book, but something that will actually bring us fulfillment. With that perspective, I’ve seen the death that has loomed over me for years be cast away, and new opportunities have been created. Even in a violent and depressing environment such as prison, there is joy to be found. As it all comes from within. So when people say to me, “Dude, you look way too happy to be in prison,” I shake my head and reply, “I always smile, and that will never change!”

Through patience, determination and positive self-talk (aka my friend grit!), I have morphed from a caterpillar to a butterfly, or from a fragile and chaotic egg to a hyper-jacked-up chickling. Instead of trying to change the world around me to achieve my desired results, I began to change from within and in turn, my perceptions have shifted and so has my world. Therefore, no matter what happens, I see everything positively and as a win. I can never lose. And so can you, so long as you develop the skill of positive perspective. Something extremely difficult to do at first, but gets much easier with time.

Today, I’d like to challenge you all to do some self-reflection. What type of egg are you? We all let outside influences plague us, and let our perceptions run wild. In prison I see this all the time. I see guys become completely hardened, which is usually reflected by an abundance of face and head tattoos! Join me in taking a stand against these negative influences and regaining full control of our perceptions. Starting today, let us all be patient, determined, kind, full of integrity, hard workers and positive thinkers.

The hardest part is getting started, but once you do, your momentum will build and build until you become an unstoppable force. By doing this, we can all be the eggs that crack from the inside, with endless possibilities awaiting us. The only thing in your way is yourself, so don’t be the egg that cracks from the outside. I was, and all it brought was drug addiction, greed, hate and death. Let’s expel the negative cloud of self-doubt and influence that has been looming over us, and instead allow ourselves to be filled with a prosperous beam of hope. Starting today, be the egg that cracks from the inside. You will never regret it.
