About the Book:  
Life is meant to be lived with purpose. Before Rachel Karu could speak, she longed to be a singer and performer. But like all of us, Rachel was born with Gremlins- inner voices that hate change and demand the staus quo. These perpetual tapes clung to her mind like shackles threatening to derail her at every turning point. At the lead of Rachel’s gang was the toughest of them all: Perfectionism. In STEPPING INTO MORE: Lessons from a Recovering Perfectionist, Rachel details her personal journey of wrangling and ultimately co-existing with her Gremilins. We are born with strengths and development areas. Our goal is to create a fulfilling life and we all need some guidance along the way. Intended as a tool, this guide offers support as you grapple with your own Gremlins and higher self, so that you learn how to make clear, conscious choices that lead to a wonderful, expansive life. Rachel’s story and the reflective questions at the end of each chapter are designed to serve as a stepping stone for you to reconnect to and honor your passions, values, and dreams.

Book Review:

In a self-help book that is far less traditional than most, Karu shares snippets of her life with the reader, and then offers “questions to ponder”, allowing readers to discover their own gremlins that are keeping them from achieving and accomplishing. 

As one who is a bit on the obsessive side of the spectrum, the questions and the revelations are particularly helpful in providing an example of one person’s journey: both to not feel so isolated and to get a feel for the ways in which one can possibly ‘break’ bad habits. 

Although this was a quick read, the questions still linger, and I do find myself looking for other ways to accomplish and achieve the sort of goals that I may set for myself without over analyzing each step to death. 

Certainly a book that provides insight and some interesting food for thought. 

I received an eBook copy from the publisher for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
