Hermit crabs are remarkable creatures.
Unlike true crabs, which have their own exoskeleton to protect them, they have taken to inhabiting empty shells.
When they get too big for the shell that they are living in, they find a new one and move right in.
Over the years, I’ve met too many people who were afraid to learn the lesson of the hermit crab.
They find themselves stuck in a job that doesn’t suit them anymore.
They feel as though they have outgrown their current position.
They believe that their skills are being underutilised.
But when an empty shell (or more suitable job) presents itself, they hesitate and choose to stay in that cramped, uncomfortable space that’s restricting their growth.
My question today is, are you feeling restrained in your current situation?
And if so, what are you going to do about it?
