From “Crabs In A Bucket” To Designer Mansions

Empower Network and Crab Mentality

Empower Network and The Crab Mentality

Kind of an interesting, yet disturbing story…

Recently, I arrived in Miami for a leaders retreat where myself and a dozen other top income earners in Empower Network met to mastermind.

Our “offices” for the weekend included a first class 5 star hotel, a luxury yacht & a designer mansion.

Here’s the view from our Miami suite (click the images to see the entire set)

But let me tell you… there have been quite a few obstacles along the way.

One that I can relate with – just earlier this week, we received an email from a concerned teammate who was having trouble coping with unsupportive loved ones who felt she was wasting her time “messing around with all this internet stuff.”

Her concerns brought to mind a story that I once heard about 20 crabs in a bucket, also known as “crab mentality.”

This way of thinking is best described by the phrase “if I can’t have it… neither can you.”

The metaphor refers to a pot of crabs.

Crab MentalityIndividually, the crabs could easily escape from the pot, but instead, they grab at each other in a useless “king of the hill” competition, which prevents any of them from escaping & ensures their collective demise.

The analogy in human behavior is that members of a group will attempt to “pull down” any member who achieves success beyond the others, out of envy or competitive feelings.

Many times, those who are pulling us down don’t even realize the reasons for their actions.

In fact, truly “Getting It” and understanding your potential in this industry is often easily understood by 12 and 14 year olds… Yet for some odd reason, adults have a hard time grasping the concept.

Unfortunately, many of our peers have been conditioned throughout their life to believe that playing it safe, and getting a dreadfully boring J.O.B. is the only way to success. Yet even a 14-year-old child can see the clear benefits of owning your own business rather than building someone else’s empire via a J.O.B.

Here’s a GREAT (short) article that proves how adults can easily miss the boat, when they allow their ignorance to guide them.

How To Conquer The Crab Mentality Mindset

empower-network-humilityI’ll be honest with you, my first 6 months in this business were pretty rough.

I was laughed at, humiliated, & there were plenty of times that I felt like giving up as a result of the “crabs” trying to pull me down.

It was in these tough times that I had a decision to make. I could give up & settle for mediocrity, or continue to fight my way out of the pot.

Now, as I look back from our mastermind suite in Miami, hanging out with the industry’s top income earners, I’d say that going my own way & not allowing the “crabs” to influence my decisions was by far the right choice to make.

NEVER Let Those With Crab Mentality Get You Down

Isn’t it time to start setting into motion the decisions that will shape your destiny?
