The Death Of The Human Lobster

Orison Swett Marden (1850 – 1924) – “A lobster, when left high and dry among the rock, does not have the sense enough to work his way back to the sea, but waits for the sea to come to him. If it does not come, he remains where he is and dies, although the slightest effort would enable him to reach the waves, which are perhaps within a yard of him. The world is full of human lobsters; people stranded on the rocks of indecision and procrastination, who, instead of putting forth their own energies, are waiting for some grand billow of good fortune to set them afloat.”

  • Great inspirational video, Lou – thanks for posting it.

    And yes, I was sitting in front of the computer and thought \"oh yes, I am guilty\". At least sometimes.

    Your kick in the b*** is highly appreciated.

    Keep up the great work.

    Best wishes from Germany,

    Thorsten Happel

  • Another great video Lou! You didn’t sugar coat anything for us, just what we all need right?

    Hi Thorsten,

    Thank you for commenting. These videos are also the kick in the pants I sometimes need to get my butt in gear. We’re all human, and we’re all guilty of being human lobsters at some point or another. The challenge is to recognize it and then do something about it.

    All the best!


  • Lou!

    Dead-on man! Massive action gets massive results!
    What makes a pro? Doing the WORK that the amateur
    isn’t willing to do. Really appreciate your networking!

    Thanks Terry!

    I appreciate the comment and the support. Sometimes I feel like I’m preaching to the choir. Truth be told, some of these videos are more of a conversation with myself. The camera lens is my mirror, and I’m giving myself the boost I need to continue moving forward. Hopefully, others can benefit from the process.

    All the best!
