Steve Harvey, the Family Feud host, shared with his audience the secret to all success after taping a recent episode. He said, “Every successful person has had to jump.”
He explained why he calls it “jumping.” He said, “God, when He created all of us, He gave every last one of us a gift at birth… You’ve got to identify that gift.”
If you’re “standing on the cliff of life” and you see people soaring you by you, chances are they’re “living in their gift.”
“The only way for you to soar is you got to jump. You’ve got to take the gift that’s packed away on your back. You got to jump off that cliff and you got to pull that cord,” Harvey shared. “That gift opens up and provides the soar. If you don’t ever use it, you’re just going to go to work. And if you gettin’ up going to a job every day that you hate going to, that ain’t living. You just existing. At one point in time, you ought to see what living’s like. You gotta jump.”
It may not be smooth sailing, at least not at first. “But eventually the parachute has to open. That’s a promise of God.”
“You can play it safe and deal without all the cuts and tears. And, you can stand on that cliff of life forever safe. But if you don’t jump, I got another promise I can make you. Your parachute will never open. You’ll never know. You’ll never know what God really has for you.”
He says the only way to get to that abundant life (John 10:10) is to jump.

After I tape an episode at Family Feud I spend a few more minutes with the audience. I talk about jumping.
