Finding Traps we create for ourselves and dealing with them

Likening traps to a force field analysis; people focus on the driving focus without paying enough attention to the restraining forces.  Traps are more like the restraining forces or barriers that restrain us from reaching our potential or our dreams.   The book describes 7 traps and a course that is orientated on business traps such as the busy-ness trap.

Important things to focus on and set aside the others

Help people to understand that they live their own life.  People have to realize they have control of their lives.  You can lead your life, your business, your marriage etc. you do not have to be a victim who controls their own destiny.  Help people to focus on their core priorities to achieve their vision and their goals.  They control their destiny.  People understand their vision.

Learning how to be accountable first for the choices you make

With a society and culture that wants to point the finger at someone else, it is very tough to teach accountability.  Referring to this as a trap is a language that helps people realize and accept the reality of the situation.  Epiphany breakthroughs get you to a new level of thinking.

Try, failing, learning, and repeat system is the model for successful company

The process of life cannot speed up in an instantaneous results culture.  Business tries to create this very controlled environment:  fearing failure. We need to be open to the iteration process through working at repeating the process until we obtain success.
