Cambridge Bootcamp -
Got Crabs... 10/6/15
I want to share a quick story with you today…
It’s one that’s thrown around quite often actually when it comes to being successful
So I’m not going to pretend that I’ve made it up
(^^^ That’s success in any area btw: body, career, life. Whatever)
My story telling skills leave a lot to be desired, so bear with me. I’m no Jackanory!
‘There’s a man walking along a pier at the beach, let’s call it Hunstanton
He notices an old chap sitting in a chair, crab fishing
They start to talk
Man notices old chaps crab bucket, with no lid on and a crab about to escape
He points this out to the old chap, as he wouldn’t want him to lose a crab
‘Watch’ says old chap
As the crab gets close to the top of the bucket, just a pincher away from freedom…
Another crab reaches up and pulls him back down into the bucket prison.’
OK, so my story telling skills are almost non-existent!
But the message here is clear:
‘People can be far too quick to pull you back down, if they see you’re doing well’
Crabs, naysayers, energy vampires
Whatever you want to call them
‘Non-believers’ who feel it necessary to criticize what you’re doing
Common advice from the ‘success coaches’ is to minimise contact with these people
I believe that’s a little extreme
Could be work colleagues, friends, maybe even family
The people that you love
But even if it’s not intentional
They could be hindering, or maybe even stopping you from achieving your goals
All you need to do is block out the negativity
Let it wash over!
‘You don’t need to do that’
‘What are you eating that for?’
And absorb the positivity
‘I’m proud of you’
‘You deserve it’
Want to know why A LOT of people fail at the whole weight loss thing?
They have no-one to genuinely believe in them!
Want to know what to do about it?
(This is actually one of the ‘secret reasons’ that we’re so powerful)
At Fitness Camp we have an entire ARMY of people to believe in you!
All like minded
All with the same goals
And no crabs!
And you have me of course!
It’s a powerful combination!
I can understand that.
