According to Bishop Jakes it starts with the individual embracing his past and no longer allowing it to define his future. Another step is to remember dreams and promises God has made in the past because God can't lie. Part of "repositioning" one's self is also taking control over circumstances and situations in life. Bishop Jakes encourages the reader to not allow the opinions of others, especially those who aren't spiritual, to deter a word received from God. He deals with the need to get out of debt and take control over scheduling and commitments. Learning to say "no" to opportunities or requests that don't add significance to time spent is also important. As a pastor, this is something I'm learning. As much as I would like to see people live differently or change, I can't make anyone do or understand anything they can't, won't, and don't want to see or believe. Bishop Jakes deals with the idea that some people are completely stuck in their own thinking and no amount of writing, talking, preaching, or teaching will change them. In essence, Jakes encourages the reader to invest in things, ministries, and people that will produce fruit. Good advice for me.
Overall, the book is good. It ends up being more of a self help book by the time it's over and in that it didn't completely appeal to me, but as always Bishop Jakes has great nuggets of wisdom for pastors and Christians alike.
