This week’s “Book to Read” is coming to you because of an inspiring video I watched. It’s “Jump” by Steve Harvey.
First I have to say I love Steve Harvey! He is hilarious, but I had no idea he was a motivational speaker till I happened to come across his video “Jump” in 2017 while mindlessly scrolling through one of my social media feeds. I watched the video and was so impressed. Then I found out he had written a book with the same title and immediately read it.
I love that in “Jump” Steve keeps things real. It was very inspiring to read about his story: his struggles, where he’s come from and how he kept going through adversity. But he also tells how he still keeps things in perspective and continues working diligently even through his successes. There is encouragement from page one and I found that the book gave me that feeling that if he can do it, then I know I can go after my dreams.
If you go online, you’ll read mixed reviews about the book (well, actually, this happens with all books!). Steve come from a Christian perspective but no matter what your ideology or spirituality, I believe you’ll find nuggets of wisdom throughout “Jump” that will inspire you.
