Trap Tales: Outsmarting the 7 Common Traps in Life & Work

by David M.R. Covey and Stephan Mardyks

Published by Wiley


Outsmart the traps that can hold you back from success!

Trap Tales is your guide to avoiding seven obstacles that ensnare people every day. We all fall into traps, and we often don't even realize it until we're firmly entrenched, struggling for air—and the harder we try to climb out, the deeper we sink. But what if there were another way? What if we could spot traps from a distance, and avoid them entirely? In this book, authors David M. R. Covey and Stephan M. Mardyks train you in the art of Trapology. You’ll meet Alex and Victoria, who have fallen into traps you’re sure to recognize. As you read their stories, you’ll learn about the seven most common life traps, and how even the smartest and seemingly most accomplished people find themselves stuck and unable to achieve the success they desire. You may discover that you're actually trapped right now, but consider this book your lifeline—the lessons contained in Trap Tales will teach you how to escape these traps and how to sidestep them in the future.

Life traps are camouflaged, sometimes as a terrific opportunity, sometimes as comfortable security, sometimes as simple habit. Traps are masters of disguise, but there are telltale signs that give them away every time. This book shows you how to recognize those signs in time to take an alternate route; if you’ve already fallen into one, you'll learn how to climb out and get back on your way.

  • Learn the seven biggest life traps 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 them altogether

Traps are escapable, and knowing the right steps to take can change your life for the better. Stop letting traps steal your time, money, energy, and happiness—Trap Tales provides survival training of a different sort, and sets you on the journey to the next phase of your life.
