Crab Mentality…

Dear support system,

You are not crabs and for that, I thank you.  Insert obvious, what is Aimee talking about, thought.  I have been fighting extremely hard to get out of the bucket.  Each time I get closer, a thought pulls me back down.  Just like crabs in the bucket.  This metaphor was used this weekend.  Individually, the crabs could easily escape from the pot, but instead, they grab at each other in a useless competition which prevents them from escaping and actually making it out.  Hmmm.  Sound familiar?

So I took this and spun it while reflecting on what Warren Barfield said.  You see my problem is sometimes all it takes is one crab.  Just one.  A doctor telling me that there is no cure for autoimmune, fibromyalgia, etc.  A friend telling me no, they are not interested in my business, which is their choice by the way, or someone speaking negative thoughts in my ear about how I won’t be able to grow my business.  These thoughts become like crabs in my head and they pull me down.  Over and over again.  Until now.

I am going to succeed in my personal business, Vitalize You, and I am going to change lives.  I am not promising you anything you can’t already achieve, but I am promising you guidance on your journey.  So to all my customers and fans, thank you for believing in my adventure.  For lifting me out of the bucket when I needed it instead of pulling me back down…because believe me, I do enough of that on my own.

  1. Keep fighting the good fight, my friend. This was a good analogy. Now, when someone is pouring out yuck to me or giving me bad reports, speaking negativity, I will be like, “Oh, they are just crabs.” Ha ha. In my head of course. lol

    My focus over the last few years while also dealing with health issues has been to make sure I am feeding myself good thoughts every single day…lots of them. I started a 30 day challenge that I think has turned into a life long challenge. I am learning more and more how important our thoughts are. This year a lot of focus will be on taking every thought captive. Our thoughts are so important. Have you heard of Dr. Caroline Leaf? She has a great book called Switch On Your Brain. It is fantastic. It is really transforming how I view my thoughts. It reminds me of the Peace Pilgrim quote I love so much….

    “If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.”

  2. Awesome post Aimee and whatever any little voices might be saying, take my word for it, you’re doing a great job. In my part of the world it’s known as “Tall Poppy Syndrome.” (Google it.) As sure as someone begins to look remotely successful in their given field, there will be many just trying to cut them down to size!!!! Shut your ears to all negative comments, you’re doing great.
