I don’t know if you’re like me or not. However, I figure you too love to kick off your new year, a new quarter, or a new season by having something to inspire you to something great. As it happens, I recently finished T. D. Jakes book Soar: Build Your Vision from the Ground Up, and it definitely fits the bill. No one can ever doubt that when they pick up a book by Bishop T. D. Jakes, that what is inside won’t have some sort of impact. For anyone who has hopes for the future, his book Soar is one that will cause your mind to do just that, as you move from page to page, from chapter to chapter, and from section to section.
Whether you’re dealing with the vision for your business, a ministry, or anything that you want out of life, this book is designed to help you go from what you see to having what you saw. Bishop Jakes, is well experienced in both ministry and business, so he, like only he can, shares his thoughts and experiences about vision with great insights from the world of aviation; both that of human aviation and that of the many birds that fly.
Each section of the book presents his personal accounts and “school-of-hard-knocks” lessons learned and best practices for taking a venture from blueprint conception to reality. What I appreciate about his presentation is that he doesn’t mince words or sugar coat anything. He gives you his thoughts on the benefits of good marketing, minding your business, having a plan, knowing your numbers and other common best practices.
This is a book that is definitely for anyone who has a burning heart to create and build, who dares to dream of better and greater. This is a book for the visionary who dares to pursue what has been seen but previously unsure how it might be brought to fruition. Whether you are envisioning a business, a ministry, or going beyond your current circumstances, you will find that this book is an invaluable resource to take you from flapping your wings to lift off to eventual soaring.
QUESTION: Do you imagine your life as someone who can soar like the eagles?
