You, Unstuck: You Are the Solution to Your Greatest Problem
What's holding you back? Seth Allen Smith says look in the mirror. It's who, not what. All of us feel trapped, stuck, or unable to move forward in life at some point. But ultimately, the greatest obstacle to achieving your full potential is you. But the good news is you can find the solution in the mirror too.
This book combats a destructive mindset that we all sometimes fall into : I can't change. I am the victim of my circumstances and confined by my personal limitations. This philosophy, intangible though it is, destroys more dreams and limits more lives than any actual, physical obstacle. It is a philosophy of stagnation and damnation.
Drawing on literature, history, and his personal experiences with chronic depression, as well as on encounters with remarkable "ordinary" people who've beaten the odds, Smith inspires us to see that no matter how dire our circumstances there is always some positive step you can take, however small it might be. He doesn't sugarcoat the difficulties or offer promises of overnight success. But he does promise that if you continue to see yourself as a victim you'll remain frozen and fearful. Nobody wants that. We may not be able to control what happens to us, but we can always control how we react. We all have the power to lift ourselves out of the abyss and into the light.
Born in Anchorage, Alaska and raised in the American West, Seth Adam Smith is a tenacious traveler who loves the Arizona desert as much as the wilderness of Siberia. An aspiring author, Seth recently finished several of his novels and is currently on a "literal" odyssey to publish them.
In all that he does, Seth's focus in life to promote good causes. Winston Churchill had it right when he said: "What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone?...I avow my faith that we are marching towards better days. Humanity will not be cast down. We are going on swinging bravely forward along the grand high road and already behind the distant mountains is the promise of the sun."
