The story of how amazingly silly human behavior mimics animal mannerisms is not silly after all. A story shared with me many times growing up in the Philippines shows a simple fact, do you know how easy it is to keep a ‘crab’ in a shallow bucket? Just place another crab in there with it and watch how the first will snag the second and where both will not make it out.
Sadly it’s like that special friend who is the first to tell you, (or anyone else) how silly it is to work toward getting out of your comfort zone like to pursue a new promotion / finding love with an above league girl or guy / achieving a lofty fitness or health goal, etc. We all know who that person is..
Do not let the words of another stifle your growing imagination to better yourself! Move pass the limiting conjecture of those who continually whine about their life and be the best you!
The picture in your mind is but a fragile glimpse of the great possibilities of a better life, so fragile yet so powerful. To the crab, it’s food! Be aware of those that try through words and actions to keep you just where they are, whining, hoping and even praying; but not willing to move past their comfort zone. The gift of a better life is one of action in the face of what seemingly is fear. GET OFF YOUR ASS and out of the bucket!!
