Ever heard the story about the crabs in a bucket? Every time one of them tried to climb out, the others would pull them back.
And there's a lot of people out there just like those crabs. Some are obvious - negative and vocal.
But it's the silent ones who send messages of disapproval by their lack of action or words that can really get to you. I'd rather they got a backbone and got off the fence - pick a side!
Don't let either of these fool you, though!
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great,
- Mark Twain
