The Crabs

Ben Carson, MD, Johns Hopkins University neurosurgeon who grew up on the streets of Detroit

Go down to the fish market and look into the crab barrel. They never have to put a lid on it because if one crab starts to crawl out, the others will grab onto him and pull him back down.

That's what negative peer pressure does. And that's what you must fight against.
