What if you could stop your emotions from hijacking your life?

Emotionally Equipped for Life is the only proven step-by-step method for dealing with the difficult emotions that show up in your life, so you take control of them before they take control of you.

You’re in the right place.

Whether you're: 

Someone frustrated, disappointed, or angry with the people in your life

Someone stuck in an endless cycle of being upset with yourself for the things you say and do

Someone who feels anxious or overwhelmed - and then binges on food, alcohol, or social media to numb yourself

Someone whose life goals are put on hold because their emotions get in the way

I'm Shira Gura.

For a long time, too, I was feeling stuck.

I’m an emotional well-being coach and I help people, like you, learn how to become emotionally-equipped, so they can take control of their emotions the moment they feel them. But it wasn’t always that way. 

I was feeling stuck in my marriage, how I dealt with my children, my work, and even stuck with how I felt about myself.

I realized that if I really wanted to feel in control, I needed a strategy that I could rely on no matter WHAT the situation.

I knew I needed practical mental steps that I could use IN THE MOMENT, before my emotions would get the best of me.

But I couldn’t find any tools like that, so I set out on a mission to create my own…and that's when how I dealt with my emotions began to change. I became emotionally equipped to deal with any situation. 

Then I became “unstuck.”

As I taught others my “unstuck tools” things began to change for them, too. Just as I know things in your life will change when you learn to control your emotions, rather than let them control you.

  • Pause and respond intentionally, rather than live on autopilot and react automatically

  • Get unstuck and feel completely in control as you navigate difficult and uncomfortable emotions

  • Feel better in any moment as you uncover how to get unstuck and take on a new mindset

  • Walk calmly, confidently, and courageously into future moments

  • Hold yourself in self-compassion for not being perfect, rather than beating yourself up each time you get stuck

  • Be the person you want to be and live deliberately


Emotionally Equipped for Life is for anyone looking to create a change in their lives – to become emotionally equipped to handle anything life throws at you. 

“A totally new approach to mindfulness, effective even for those for whom ‘be in the moment’ advice has never worked!” 

Marshall Goldsmith, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, Triggers: Changing Behavior That Lasts – Becoming the Person You Want to Be

I gained more confidence in myself and more trust in life.

She is a true gem."

What’s Inside This Course

Five powerful modules, 20 videos, and insightful exercises give you the tools, confidence, and unparalleled support to take control of your emotions, anytime, anywhere.


Module 1: The Foundations for Living an Emotionally Equipped Life

I know exactly what it feels like to have your life get hijacked by your emotions, so we’ll start exactly where you’re at by taking a big picture glance at what’s working in your life right now (and what’s not), to help you achieve TOTAL clarity about you will work on as we move through this course.

Essential skills:

  • Understand how the mind works - and why we get stuck


  • Discover the stories we tell ourselves that keep us stuck


  • Learn the words that your mind needs to hear to help you get unstuck


  • Practice the one skill that is essential to becoming emotionally equipped that you can use right away


Module 2: The Essential Skills for Living an Emotionally Equipped Life


Having tools in your life is useless unless you know how to use them, so we’ll do a deep dive into the essential skills you must learn, cultivate, and practice in order to use the “unstuck tools” you will learn later in this course.

We’ll start with mapping out exactly what you need to do when you face difficult emotions so instead of reacting automatically when you get stuck, you’ll know how to respond intentionally.

Then, you’ll discover the secret of why you get stuck. You’ll learn how to access the source of your stuck spots and what to do with them so you can get unstuck.

One of my favorite skills of all comes next. This is where you learn how to create new neural networks in your mind (it’s more fun than it sounds!) so you can start to change your mindset and feel better in any moment!

And finally, you’ll set yourself up for success by learning the skill of self-compassion so that you can eliminate the negative self-talk which often comes along with the stuck spots you face.

Essential skills:

  • Identify your emotions so you are clear about what you are really feeling


  • Uncover where your stuck spots come from and know what to do with them


  • Discover how being “right” can keep you stuck


  • Open your mind to consider alternate explanations for the behavior of others and yourself


  • Learn to be kind to yourself


Module 3: Getting unSTUCK with The unSTUCK Method


Now that you have learned the essential skills, you will bring them all together in a simple and a user-friendly way so that you can start to get unstuck in your own life, anytime, anywhere.

When your emotions are in check, everything becomes easier. Feeling calm and in control, getting along with people, and being the person you want to become. When you don’t have control over your emotions, you really don’t have control over much of anything as it is your emotions that drive your actions, which drive your results. 

If you want to have different results in your life, you must learn how to recognize, cope with, and process the thoughts and emotions that arise within you. The unSTUCK Method offers you a language to be able to embody emotional freedom and become more independent in your emotional health and well-being, rather than play the victim and blame people for how you feel at any given time.

This tool helped me internalize the concept of emotional freedom and how I always had free choice for all of my reactions and responses in life. It was learning how to get unSTUCK in my life that helped me become more independent and feel more self-sufficient in my emotional health and well-being.

Essential skills:

  • Learn step-by-step how to use The unSTUCK Method


  • Look at examples of how the unSTUCK Method works in different scenarios


  • Learn how to incorporate the unstuck method in all areas of your life


Module 4: Getting CLEAR with The CLEAR Way


So far you’ve seen how you can get stuck in the past, but you can also get stuck thinking about the future. Now you’ll learn how you can mentally prepare yourself to avoid getting stuck when anticipating something that is about to happen.

The CLEAR Way is a tool that guides you to become aware of the “holes” in your life and how you can take personal responsibility so that you can avoid falling into them. When you are CLEAR you have access a proactive way to go into any future moment and break out of unconscious patterns that aren’t serving you. Being CLEAR helps you become aware of your expectations (often we carry expectations without even realizing it) and accept in advance the very scenario you fear. When you are CLEAR, you change your story ahead of time so that you are not entering a situation already feeling stuck.

Getting CLEAR is like putting on a new pair of glasses – the gift of clarity allows you to be preemptive, deliberate, and mindful to cope with whatever potential obstacles you face. The CLEAR Way is about taking full responsibility for your life, rather than blaming others or blaming the circumstances outside of you for how you feel.

Essential skills:

  • Learn step-by-step how to use The CLEAR Way


  • Look at examples of how The CLEAR Way works in different scenarios


  • Learn how to incorporate The CLEAR Way in all areas of your life


Module 5: Living Deliberately


By this point, you will have learned how to get unstuck in your life, whether that’s something from your past or something that hasn’t happened yet. But, life isn’t just about getting unstuck,  - it’s about living deliberately. And that’s what we’ll focus on as we wrap up this course.

Once you get unSTUCK and you get CLEAR, the next step is to put into place the person you are committing to being, by identifying how that person thinks, what actions that kind of person would take, and what results those actions would lead to. Once you align yourself with who you decide to BE and you start taking actions that align with the results you want to see in your life, you will automatically be CREATING the results you want to see in your life. Living deliberately is not about getting to the final destination in a hurry. Rather, Living Deliberately is about recognizing that the key to getting from “here to there” is learning how to consciously be the creator of your life moment by moment.

 Being Emotionally Equipped means you have the tools to get unSTUCK from whatever situation you may be in currently, get CLEAR so you can move forward, and become free to Live Deliberately.

Essential skills:

  • Learn how answering the question “Who am I being?” may be the most important question you ask yourself in any moment.


  • Discover a powerful way to put yourself back in the driver seat of your life


  • Map out your own plan to start living deliberately and create the results you want to see in your life

When you complete this course, you will learn how to take complete and full responsibility for your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

    At the end of the 8-week course, you will receive a personal invite to join my inner “Circle.” I am fully aware that this work is not just about knowledge, but rather about practice, and therefore transformation happens over time. I see it as my duty and privilege to continue standing by your side as you explore all of the areas in your life where you can get unstuck and live deliberately. This is a life-time practice and I will be here for you every step of the way.

  • You want more emotional control in your life.
