Robert Bakke declares, “Living with less is NOT the new normal!” Bakke is a black belt, a jet captain, a NASCAR driver, author of Amazon’s best-selling book, “Prayer at Full Throttle” and may have set a world record in the process.
Bakke’s new book (his second) is self-published, yet managed to achieve “global” television publicity in a mere 4.5 months from the date it launched … a feat that seems utterly impossible, which is why he has Guinness World Records checking into it. The American Dream is most definitely alive and well, and Bakke is looking for interviews to spread the word.
Proving the impossible to be “possible” wasn’t always the case for Bakke.
But then one day in college, for no particular reason, he picked up a New Testament and starting reading. “I couldn’t understand why they didn’t teach this stuff in church,” says Bakke, who continues, “it was the most encouraging and powerful information I had ever laid my eyes on. It completely changed what I thought about God, myself, and my capabilities. When I had finished reading it, I truly believed that with God’s help I could accomplish anything. And so can anyone, especially when they are living in the greatest country on earth. America.”
According to Bakke, people need to disregard what they are hearing about living with less as being the new normal. “It’s baloney,” say Bakke, who adds, “This is America. We are a God-blessed nation, and my God doesn’t think in terms of ‘small and lack’ and neither should you. It’s time we put America and success back on the radar.”
