Getting unSTUCK is about YOU. It is about your life and you taking the necessary steps to transform your personal “stuck” stories to feel better in any given moment.
My goal is to have listeners realize that anyone and everyone can get unSTUCK, and not just me!
And I believe your stories will inspire others to realize this!
For that reason, I want to share your stories with my audience.
If you would like me to feature your story in a future Getting unSTUCK podcast episode, be sure you are familiar with my podcast structure by listening in to some of the episodes, and then please follow the guidelines below:
Take a moment and decide which “stuck” story you’d like to share.
Then, write your “stuck” story on paper or in a Word document (about 2 pages single spaced). Your story should loosely follow how I deliver my stories on my podcast. Allow yourself to be funny, if it’s appropriate. Sometimes, self-deprecating humor is one of the best sources of health and medicine that exists.
At the top of the page write, “Hi, Shira. This is (your name or a fictitious name) from (where you live.)
Then, write the background of your story, say how you noticed you were stuck, so you took a (S) stop, share what (T) emotion(s) you were stuck on, what you (U) uncovered and if each of your thoughts were 100% accurate, what you (C) considered, share with us the end of the story, and how you held yourself in self-compassion or said it was (K) O.K. for having gotten stuck in the first place.
Find a quiet place to record yourself reading your story. The quality of your audio is important. Record yourself speaking your story into your phone using your favorite voice recording app. (While you don’t necessarily have to read your story word for word, I have found that having what you are planning to say written out in front of you is a very helpful guide.) Please speak slowly and as clearly as possible. Remember, the listeners won’t know your story ahead of time and they won’t have the words in front of them to read, so your clarity is important!
Your story should take about 10 minutes (give or take) to read.
Listen to your recording. Did it sound good? Were there noises in the background? Consider recording it a second time. While the recording does not need to be perfect, it does need to be good enough to broadcast from my podcast. (If you do send me a recording and I like your story, but the quality is not good enough, I will let you know!)
Decide what you wish your title of your story to be. Consider “x”. Your consideration should be unique to my podcast. (Each episode of my podcast requires a unique name. Your consideration may be similar to consideration I already presented, but it needs to take on a different name. For example, “Consider It Was Meant to Be” and “Consider It’s in God’s Hands” are similar considerations, but with different titles. Be sure to check out the names of all the episodes before you send in yours!)
Email me your recording: shira at thestuckmethod dot com. Subject: Consider “x”.
I will be in touch with you as soon as possible to let you know I received your recording!
