After a career as a successful international corporate negotiator, Burns resident Steve Kubicek decided to share his experiences and his faith to help others learn how to unlock their potential and find fulfillment in life. The result of what he calls a lifetime of gathering information is “Up and In: Seven Keys to Unlocking Your Potential.” Kubicek will sign copies of the book 11 am-2 pm Saturday at Lighthouse Christian Bookstore at 432 Highway 46 South. “Up and In” is written as 42 daily messages that draw on Kubicek’s personal experiences, inspiration from others, gentle humor, uplifting anecdotes and Scripture to help readers overcome what Kubicek calls an “epidemic of down-and-out feelings” that is gripping the country. “When we are in an up-and-in frame of mind, we become attractive to others, even to ourselves, but when we are in a down mood or having a one-person pity party, we become repellent. It is hard to excel when you are pushing others away,” Kubicek says. Divided into chapters he calls seven keys, each daily reading includes personal insight toward a goal, tips for “discovering treasure,” a verse of Scripture and inspiration for “digging deeper.” An ordained deacon, Kubicek also travels as an inspirational speaker and is currently working on a book scheduled for release later this year called “Visibly Struck,” which he describes as a novel based on the true experiences of George Washington.
