I read a very interesting book by Steve Harvey called Jump. It’s his newest book. In it he spoke candidly of his journey to becoming a famous TV personality.
Of course he talks about his struggles and sacrifices as he’s paying his dues, so to speak. When he was just starting out, he took jobs that weren’t quite the right fit for him but these were necessary in order for him to discover what he truly wanted to do. When he finally had the nerve to follow his dreams, naturally he had heartbreaks and detractors.
The most interesting thing is that he also had heartbreaks and detractors even when he made it big and became a household name!
~Steve Harvey made millions but then, due to poor decisions by one of his managers, Steve discovered he owed the IRS millions of dollars!
~He is experienced and good at hosting different types of shows but he also made a now famous blunder at the Miss America Pageant.
So if you find that as you’re living more and more of your soul-prospering life but you’re still experiencing setbacks and still making mistakes, you are in good company! Every person we think of as successful is experiencing the same thing!
Don’t lose hope; don’t quit! Keep going!
In the meantime, get the book–most libraries have it or can order it through interlibrary loan. Read it and let me know what you think. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below. Thanks!
