Stay Out Of The Bucket

The blue crab are a beautiful species of crabs found in the Atlantic Ocean.  When people catch them for dinner they will routinely throw them in a bucket. 

When the first one is caught a lid has to be put on the bucket because the crab will try and crawl out. 

Once a second crab is caught and placed in the bucket the lid is not needed because the crabs will try and pull each other down and they can’t crawl out.

The same is true of some of the people around you.  There are some who want to keep you in the bucket when you are down.

Unsuccessful people, people without vision, goals, and dreams will do all that they can to try and keep you down with them.

Don’t be a crab.


I’m cheering for you.
