    Book Review

Reviewed by Samantha Rivera for Readers' Favorite

Up and In by Steve Kubicek is a book of keys, a book which explains and details the ways in which any individual can turn to God and to their own internal self and achieve more than they ever have before. It’s all about getting ‘Up and In’ rather than ‘down and out.’ There’s more to life than just surviving. Thriving is what everyone wants to do and it’s something that will take some effort but is still possible. Each step of the journey is outlined in a new key and provides examples and methods of implementation so that no matter where you are on your path through life, you can succeed at making a difference for yourself and for others as well. The Lord works in mysterious ways and right now he’s working to help this book.

It’s not always easy to look at the glass as half full but that’s exactly what Up and In is all about. Throughout the course of this book the author hits on many aspects of life where an individual may feel stuck or unable to succeed. Yet they have the potential to do just that. It’s all about believing in yourself and believing in your dreams and goals. This book contains areas called, ‘Discovering Treasure’ which give prospecting assistance for those who don’t know how to apply the principle at hand and even ‘Digging Deeper’ sections which relate to why you should implement these changes and ideas in your life. I have to say this book is very inspirational.
