This is the principle that spectators could never see from the grandstand of playing it safe! When in fact, anyone who’s ever done anything monumental in their lives knows, that sooner or later one has to stand on the brink of peril and promise. It is what one does on the precipice of opportunity that determines the outcome.
Steve Harvey shares with us what makes some ‘Jump’ while others turn sadly away only to eulogize the opportunity and bemoan the circumstances that discouraged them from action. Steve Harvey has done the leaping right before our eyes. Now he is committed to sharing the principles and preparations that he and others used to override their fears and surge into their unique destiny!
Your first JUMP is to read his book! It will make the next JUMP so much easier! (Bishop T.D. Jakes, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author)
From the Back Cover
“You need to JUMP as though your life depended on it. Because it does.”—Steve Harvey
Steve Harvey knows intimately what it’s like to face seemingly overwhelming odds. He flunked out of college. He was fired from his job. He was homeless and lived in his car. At one point he owed the IRS millions. In his most inspiring book to date, the number one New York Times bestselling author reveals how he not only survived these trials, but thrived despite them: he took a jump—a leap of faith—and has become one of the most popular, and most successful, entertainers on the planet.
Steve first introduced the concept of Jump at the close of a taping of his syndicated hit show Family Feud. Talking to the studio audience as only he can, the Emmy Award—winning host spontaneously delivered passionate advice on the secrets of his success. The video would immediately go viral and be seen by 58 million viewers (and counting) worldwide.
In this mesmerizing read, Steve builds on that invaluable advice. In Jump, he explores some vulnerable seasons in his life to use these unfortunate moments—among them, leaving a stable job to pursue his dream of being on television; starting a boys’ mentoring camp, without any support; and revealing, for the first time, the behind-the-scenes mishap of the Miss Universe pageant—to explain his core principles to teach you what it means to jump. Straightforward and profound, these principles include identifying the lessons and blessings in life; utilizing the practice of stillness; putting past mistakes in your rear-view mirror; trusting in God; and taking full responsibility, especially in difficult situations.
At the heart of this life-changing work is faith—having the confidence to know that taking your own leap will elevate your life. Jump is Steve’s testimony of what God has done in his life. Take a jump toward the rich life of blessings that God has planned for you.

I was caught in a job I hated, with a 6 hour daily commute (due to construction and traffic), and I honestly was miserable. I realized that the career I have spent my professional and educational life working towards was NOT for me (I was a Counselor). I'd been toying with making a change, but I was terrified. I wasn't sure if it was worth it. Everyone I spoke with, said to keep with the job I hated because it was stable, it paid well, etc.
After reading the book, and watching the video a million times, it happened. I took my jump. Now, it hasn't been smooth sailing the entire time. I was unemployed for a while. But my journey brought me from DC to OK. A completely different way of life, and living. I found a job that only has a 15 minute commute, 20 minutes if there is "traffic." (Seriously, traffic in OK does not compare to the DC traffic haha). Yes, I make significantly less. However, for the first time in 10 years, I am actually happy. Like, truly happy. Not fake happy. No mask to hide behind. My smile is real. My laugh is no longer fake.
My journey may not be for everyone, and honestly I don't recommend quiting your job tomorrow. I do recommend thought, reading the book, watching the video, and truly taking a look at your life. This may be that gentle push you need to take back control of your life.
It gets 4 stars because it doesn't say anything you couldn't find in other mainstream Christian motivational books but still a good read if you need help to transition your dreams into a reality.
and not to give up because you don't know what abundance blessings
God has in store for you! Steve Harvey uses his life as a good example
he tells you the raw truth about the ups and downs of following your
dreams it wouldn't be easy nothing worth getting is ever easy
you have to jump if you want God to provide a parachute to land
where he want you to be. I was for some reason guide to buy
this book I'm really glad I did because I found out what he's been
through is a lot of what I've been through. I needed the hope and
support to still follow what God put me here for. I love how
he surrounded himself with positive people and had great family
support! I would definitely recommend buying 2 copies of this book
one for you and one for a friend. It was so good it took me only 3 days to read it.
