One of the most common themes I come across when working with my coaching clients is what holds many of us back from achieving success. People ask questions such as, "Why can’t I get further in my career?" "How did I fail?" "What brought me to this point in my life?" The process of discovery takes time, and requires a great deal of soul-searching to unearth the motivation behind their actions. It’s part of the human condition to feel stuck or trapped and become confused by certain situations we find ourselves in -- and we all experience this at one time or another.
But what if you could see the "trap" before you fell into it? You could navigate your way around it, and move forward in a more positive direction.
Trap Tales: Outsmarting the 7 Hidden Obstacles to Success by coauthors Stephan M. Mardyks and David M.R. Covey, takes you on a journey that is full of unconventional wisdom, illustrating these traps and providing a road map on how to avoid them. I urge you to pick up a copy and discover ways to help you avoid the seven most common obstacles that entangle us all, each and every day.
The counter-intuitive strategies in the book will help you:
• Learn the seven biggest traps in life and work that catch people unaware
• Identify the traps that are holding you back right now
• Discover your escape route and climb out of the quicksand
• Become a “Trapologist” and avoid traps altogether
The authors' message is one of hope -- the belief that anybody can change the trajectory of their life, at any stage of their life. I whole-heartedly agree with this sentiment and encourage you to check out the book!
