No one enjoys being stuck. We don’t like being stuck in line, stuck in traffic, stuck in a dead-end job or unhealthy relationship. There’s a strong sense of helplessness, of being trapped that can, at times, feel overwhelming and insurmountable. Caged. Clueless. Stuck.
The problem is, we don’t know how to get unstuck.
Unstuck At Last (italics) was written by Gallup Certified Strengths Coach Sarah Robinson to provide new insight, tools and aha! moments for anyone who has felt stuck in a life situation. Inspired by her own journey and the significant difference that discovering her Strengths made in her own life, Robinson is uniquely qualified to provide guidance and motivation to others, no matter their circumstances.
Identifying your Strengths is only the first step on the road to becoming unstuck. Knowing what they mean and how to use them every day is where the real work — and the real rewards — lie. Using real-life examples, Robinson guides you through relatable scenarios and meaningful exercises to a new paradigm. Embracing and utilizing your Strengths allows you to kick down the usual roadblocks and excuses (“Change is hard,” “My friends won’t accept me,” “I’m afraid to stand up for myself”) and live the life you were meant to live.
