Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author and motivational powerhouse Dr. Judith Sills shows how to leap walls and push past boundaries so we can move ahead and live life fully. If your life has run out of soul and there's no obvious refueling station, this audiobook is for you! Are you stuck in a comfortable, but less-than-satisfying job, marriage, or relationship? If you're loitering at what feels like a dead end, you may be locked into a comfort zone, and it's time to make a break for it!
The author of the national best seller Excess Baggage shows us how to take seven life-changing steps to push past self-imposed limits and the seductions of security to the joys of self-propelled change. Understand the paradox of how enjoying the safety of your comfort zone can also lull you into a secure but stagnant pattern of life, love, and work. With warmth, wisdom, and gentle humor, The Comfort Trap challenges us to stretch, take risks, and jump into the unknown abyss because the rewards for moving beyond the comfort zone can be enormous.

The Comfort Trap

This audio book was extremely helpful to me. I enjoyed it so much that I have listened to it twice. I personally have been in a "Comfort Trap" situation for a number of years that Judith described perfectly. She presented the mechanics of what is going on and what needed to be accomplished...something that several therapists could not do for me. I have also come to the realization that in one way or another, a very large portion of our population is not reaching their potential success, happiness, and well being because they are also stuck in comfort traps that they may not even be able to recognize or define.

Good Title - content doesn't deliver

I loved the title and got the book. Overall, I found the book very long with each point backed up with several examples from the authors practice. Being a happily married middle aged guy the numerous examples of young women in dead end relationships did nothing for me. The psycho - speak is heavy and I put the book away without finishing it. If you are interested in getting out of a rut I would recommend "The Magic of Thinking Big" which is also available on Audible.
