Habits: 2021 Hermit Crabs

A man was walking along the beach and noticed another man casting his fishing line over the end of a pier. As the first man drew closer to the fisherman, he saw that the bait bucket had no lid. To his surprise, it was full of sea crabs crawling on top of each other.

Knowing the crabs could certainly escape, the man wondered why there was no lid. He asked the fisherman, “Why isn’t your bait bucket covered so the crabs won’t get out?”

The fisherman explained, “You need to understand that if there’s a single crab in that bucket, yes, it could certainly escape. However, since there are so many if one tries to crawl out, the others grab onto it, making sure it can’t escape so it will meet the same fate as the rest of them.”

When a crab tries to crawl out of the bucket, the others will pull her back down.

When you try to escape the bucket of bad habits, does your environment pull you down when you try to get out?

Or do they let you stand on their shoulders so you can reach the lip and get out?

As you approach 2021 with New Year Resolutions, ask yourself: Will my environment support me in these goals?
