“Looking Inwards for a Better Life” by Dalton Dean Blankinship is an insightful, powerful self-help book that can motivate you to look inward to explore and find deeper truths. Some people seem to have it all together and are right where they want to be in life. But this book is for those who think maybe something is missing, due to the superficial nature of society and tolerance for surface knowledge. Honesty doesn’t always exist in abundance with people, but this book will help you take an honest look at yourself by understanding the levels of hierarchies in society.

Blankinship writes about truth and how to find it within yourself if you feel you aren’t getting enough of it in the world. He is quick to say that he doesn’t have all the answers but does give you starters to help you on your way to a deeper understanding. I like the author’s invitation to explore yourself by looking at your inner self and coming up with ways to make your future better. A philosopher once said, “Know thyself,” and that’s what this author is saying.

The author reminds us that success doesn’t come easily and it can be a challenging journey. In a world that can sometimes seem cynical, this encouraging, book can be a source of help and healing. It isn’t a long book, but it can leave a long-lasting impression.

Many good topics are covered, like communication being key in almost everything, how you must stick to your goals even when your feelings tell you to give up, and how it’s good to recognize history while moving ahead. Boundaries, values, and health are also addressed by the author, along with, last but certainly not least, finding your purpose.

As you can tell, this is a well-rounded book that takes the whole person into account, and the author manages to put a lot of information in a small package. The message, however, is big. Exercises are also included to get you thinking about your personal goals and journey. Embrace the Wolf Within is a good chapter too. For an inspiring, straightforward guide on how to reach inside yourself to be more than you ever thought you could, “Looking Inwards for a Better Life” by Dalton Dean Blankinship should be required reading.
