How I Get Un-Stuck
Follow Sean on his official webpage: SeanVigueFitness.com I'm excited to share with you a few ways I battle that horrible feeling of being "stuck" throughout the day. Being stuck can manifest in frustration, anger, dissatisfaction, annoyance and even an overwhelming feeling of failure.

Thanks for listening and sharing this podcast with others.
