One time a man was walking along the beach and say another man fishing in the surf with a bait bucket beside him. As he drew closer, he saw that the bait bucket had no lid and had live crabs inside. "Why don't you cover your bait bucket so the crabs won't escape?", he said. "You don't understand.", the man replied, "If there is one crab in the bucket it would surely crawl out very quickly. However, when there are many crabs in the bucket, if one tries to crawl up the side, the others grab hold of it and pull it back down so that it will share the same fate as the rest of them." So it is with people. If one tries to do something different, get better grades, better jobs, improve themselves, escape their environment, or dream big dreams, other people will try to drag them back down to share their fate.
Moral of the story: Ignore the crabs. Charge ahead and do what is right for you. It may not be easy and you may not succeed as much as you like, but you will NEVER share the same fate as those never try.
“You’ll never be able to read minds” 🧐 Mistakes & Misunderstandings happen when we fail to communicate our feelings and struggle to ask the questions we desperately want to ask.
Why are we sometimes just not direct with what we want to say? Most of us want to avoid confrontation and rejection but in the long-run , if we continue to not ask the questions - we’ll never get the answers!
Instead of trying to read minds, spend some time being absolutely direct in your communication and see what happens.
Communication is Key
