Crabs in the bucket!

“Dream Killers are just like Crabs in the bucket”


Have you ever shared “your dream” with someone and  their initial reaction was trying to take your dream away from you ?

Another way to put it by  Fashion Designer Anthony Van Lam “Stunt your growth” so you can’t reach your dream.

So, how did you feel at the time?

Embarrassed, angry  and disappointed?

Did you know why  these dream killers react this way ?

  • Some of them had already given up on their own dreams.

  • Some of them too scare to pursuit their dreams.

  • Some  of them never thought their dreams could ever come true.

Whatever their reasons may be they are just like “Crabs in the bucket”…

I remember when I was little. I had a crab pet, his name was Naughty. He was always tried to get away. You can put him in a bucket with the lid wide open and Naughty was somehow managed to get out of the bucket. The next day  I got couple more crabs to keep him company.  Then I noticed when you put 2 or more crabs together in a bucket as soon as Naughty tried to climb out, the other crabs tried to pull him down so nobody can escape.

This crab analogy is just as true with your dreams in life and business. You will come across people with the Crab mentality and will do everything in their power to steal or poison your dreams.

Which is why it’s so important to STOP LISTEN to those dream killers.

If you want to  become successful it’s very important to listen to successful people who have already accomplished  their dreams.
