Becky Vollmer's You Are Not Stuck is a blend of straight talk, humor, and clear steps for action to help change-seekers reset their priorities, drown out the naysaying voices in their heads, and make bold choices.

We all feel stuck sometimes: in our jobs, our relationships, our habits, or when the life we’re living simply doesn’t add up to the one we want. We feel stuck when it seems like we don’t have options, or when we don’t trust or allow ourselves to make the changes we so deeply long to make.

Speaker and yoga teacher Becky Vollmer believes that, when we feel paralyzed by our fears, the answer isn’t just courage—it’s choice. Because we all have choices, we just have to be brave enough to make them.

You Are Not Stuck is the key to breaking the cycle of fear and making bold choices for real change. Sometimes this transformation looks like an audacious Thelma and Louise-style leap; more often, though, it is a series of small, deliberate actions based on personal values that yield more clarity, alignment, and, ultimately, long-term contentment than driving off a cliff.

If what you seek is a tried-and-true process of empowerment that unlocks the true north already inside you, look no further. This book is a unique blend of permission and spirituality that will help you excavate your divine inner badass, close the gap between intention and action, and develop a strategic path forward that’s as unique as your thumbprint.

Through warm and straightforward wisdom, a modern and approachable take on ancient yoga philosophy, a series of practical and insightful grounding exercises, and a healthy dose of laugh-out-loud humor, you’ll learn how to make soul-guided choices in support of the life you’ve desired all along.

“Permission to quit, to change, to live in alignment with priorities” writes Becky Vollmer, in the opening chapter. These were options she had to give to herself first before she could teach others how to let go of a life that isn’t working for you anymore. “We all have choices; we just have to be brave enough to make them,” Vollmer says. This well-written guide, full of anecdotes from her own struggle to leave a corporate golden handcuffs career and an addictive drinking habit, gives readers the courage and steps to venture out from their uncomfortable “comfort” zones into uncertainty.

Thanks to Netgalley and St. Martin's Press for this arc which made my day! Becky Vollmer writes each page with realistic situations and emotions. She offers true reasoning of why one might feel a certain type of way and how to change that thinking pattern. I have recommended this book to anyone that will listen. Excellent read, and note what she says about procrastination; her statement is 100% true!

I love a good self help book and this one really is a good self help book. I enjoyed it from the beginning. I've been known to think I'm stuck and it's a terrible feeling. Becky Vollmer offers us a new way of looking at this long-used and often wrong thought process. Highly recommend!

This book was incredible from the first to the very last page. I absolutely loved it especially for its reliance on wisdom from yoga and meditation.
“The best thing you can possibly do with your life is to tackle the motherfucking shit out of it.” That’s the spirit and quote that encapsulates the energy and spirit of this incredible book. MUST read for self development and happiness.

Grab a journal and a pen while you read You Are Not Stuck! I really enjoyed this book. It encourages the reader to really analyze their thoughts and behaviors by journaling and asking thoughtful questions. Like many of us, the last several years have hit me pretty hard with the COVID-19 Pandemic and everything else it wrought beyond the virus. I found this book very motivating and insightful. It's a great place to start if you've been feeling stuck and want to change. Highly recommend!

Thank you St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for this ARC. All thoughts are my own.
