The only thing between you and the life you wish to live is the courage to decide.
Discover the possibilities waiting for you outside of the A Trap.
The tools you’ve relied on so far don’t work anymore, but you don’t know what else to do. You were never given a roadmap for this part of your life. What is there to life with all of my big goals behind me?
Without a roadmap, you fall back on what you know: hard work, persistence, grit. But now it just feels tiring, not satisfying.
Your old tools don’t work, but they’re all you have.
Accomplished most of your goals.
You were an A-student in school earning a practical degree. You went on to get a respectable job and seamlessly transitioned into an A-player at work, all while climbing the corporate ladder. Every achievement “i” has been dotted and every successful “t” crossed.
Thought you’d be happier
With all you’ve accomplished, you thought you’d be happier. You did everything right. You followed the successful path your parents, siblings, friends, and mentors laid out for you, but you find yourself thinking something is missing. After achieving so much, you expected to feel more content and fulfilled in your life.
Retirement sounds great even though it’s 15+ years away
With all boxes of success checked, you still constantly dream about the days of retirement where you will finally feel free to do what you REALLY want. You envision a time when you decide how to spend your days pursuing your interests and exploring new adventures. A time where you achieve freedom and fulfillment all at once. Should you have to wait until retirement for this?
Asking yourself: Is this all there is?
You continually wonder, is this all my success has to offer? I’ve worked hard to achieve every milestone, accomplish every goal, but I don’t feel satisfied they way I thought I would. You keep thinking there must be more to life, if only you knew what.
Prioritizing stability over freedom
It is nice to dream about freedom, but there are responsibilities to be addressed and bills to be paid. My focus at this time should be a steady paycheck and benefits. This will grant me the freedom I desire during my retirement. Stability feels safe and predictable, and I hope this will bring happiness. But what if it doesn’t…
Have more fun
Make decisions with more confidence and ease.
Stanford MBA and Apple executive who held the Worldwide Director of Finance position, Rusty achieved a level of success that many would envy.
He had everything he thought he wanted. He held his dream job at Apple, had a home, a family, had graduated from one of the top colleges in the world.
He expected that this path would fulfill him but, ironically, he felt like a failure.
Constantly dreaming about retirement or fantasizing about becoming a mailman, Rusty had “checked all the boxes” but felt locked in the trap of being a success.
For years, Rusty struggled to escape the trap of success. Like so many A Players, he created meaning from pursuit and progress, but he had already accomplished everything he thought he would and it wasn’t enough. Staying at Apple until retirement felt like selling my life for a paycheck. He knew that he wanted work to have meaning and purpose, but it took years to find the path to happiness by becoming a coach.
Now he is sharing the process with others.
Now Rusty helps other A-Players escape the trap that chasing success has locked them in.
