In his new book, Soar, the author, preacher, entertainer, and entrepreneur addresses economic frustration, social hostility and the responsibility he says each of us has to “to stop waiting on someone to rescue us, and redesign our lives, and create the kind of life you want to live.”

"If you don’t know where you are going, you don’t know what it takes to get there," declares Jakes who advises readers that the process includes actively creating a vision of where they want to be; then putting in the work to get there.
