The number-one New York Times best-selling author shares the secret of his success and teaches you how to achieve the blessed, full life that belongs to you.
On January 13, 2016, at the close of a taping of Family Feud, Steve Harvey spontaneously began to speak. Not knowing that the cameras were still rolling, the $100 million host offered his studio audience insights into his own happiness and success. His staff, also moved by Steve's passionate words, shared the riveting six-minute video on social media. The clip immediately went viral, with more than 58 million views worldwide!
In this very personal and illuminating guide, the number-one New York Times best-selling author elaborates on those spontaneous remarks. His message is simple: You need to jump like your life depends on it - because it does - if you truly want a life of peace and abundance.
Jump explores seven vulnerable "seasons" in the Emmy Award-winner's life: being homeless and living out of his car, flunking out of college, enduring the emotional turmoil of a second failed marriage, risking stability to pursue his dream of television stardom, overcoming the Miss Universe mishap, blending his family, and owing the Internal Revenue Service $20 million. Steve uses these uncomfortable moments to explain his core principles and teach you what it means to jump:
Identifying the lesson and the blessing in all that life brings our way
Isolating particular moments when we must be still and when we must take action
Implementing "humble aggression" to achieve our dreams
Placing past mistakes in our rearview mirror and creating a fresh life story
Letting go of people who are weighing us down
Taking responsibility in the face of adversity
At the heart of this mesmerizing listen is faith - the confidence in knowing that leaping will elevate our lives and that we will be caught when we fall. Don't stand on the cliff of life and watch others soar by, Steve tells us. If you take a leap of faith, God will open your parachute and "give you life more abundantly".
Life is an incredible journey. It's not good enough to exist; you need to live. You need to jump - to take a leap of faith, a risk toward the rich life God has planned for you.
