Here it is: If you have one crab in a bucket you need to put a lid on the bucket because it will climb out. However, if you have a bunch of crabs in a bucket you don’t need a lid. Anytime one of the crabs tries to climb out, the other crabs will pull the one trying to escape back in the bucket. No crabs will get out because they will all pull the escaping crab back to the bottom every time.
Not all of your friends and family will be supportive of your dream. It is imperative to surround yourself with people who are not crabs. People that have the opposite instinct of those crabs. Ones that see you close to the edge of the top of the bucket and give you that little push to get you out.
People heading toward their dreams are looking for other dreamers to surround themselves with. Align and attract people who refuse to settle. People that are not satisfied with living a mediocre life. These are the people who should be in your inner circle. These are the ones that you should allow to speak into your life. These will be the ones that will encourage you to keep walking out your dream. They will remind you that your dream is possible.
Remove negative voices or they will cause you to settle. Most people don’t want to stretch and grow. Most people are satisfied with staying in the bucket. Most people don’t want to be used by God in a mighty way. Don’t drop and forget about these people, but be conscious of how much you allow them to speak into your life.
Have strong friendships with positive people and minister to those people who look at the world negatively. Be the crab that got away! Be blessed on your journey.
How do you stay connected to other dreamers?
