It's so easy for people to be negative about someone else's dreams - especially those that don't have any.
Ask any entrepreneur and they will tell you that had they listened to all of those who gave them unsolicited advice about their business idea, startup or invention - they would have never taken the first step to get it off the ground.
The very minute you choose to be different, you will be treated differently. For the ambitious person who has the energy, drive, persistence and desire - anything is possible.
Unfortunately for many, those closest to them subscribe to the "Crab Theory" I detail in a chapter of my book, "Unemployable!".
You can safely put dozens of live crabs in a bucket with little worry any will escape as the very minute one pulls itself up by their claws to edge of the bucket, those beneath them will latch on to the crab reaching for freedom and bring them down off edge of escape.
