In his phenomenal number one New York Times best seller Act like a Lady, Think like a Man, Steve Harvey told women what it takes to succeed in love. Now, he tells everyone how to succeed in life, giving you the keys to fulfill your purpose.
Countless books on success tell you what you need to get that you don't already possess. In Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success, Steve Harvey tells you how to achieve your dreams using the gift you already have. Every one of us was born with a gift endowed by our creator - something you do the best at with very little effort. While it can be like someone else's, your gift is yours alone. No one can take it away. You are the only one who can use it - or waste it.
Steve shows how that gift holds your greatest chance at success, and the fulfillment of your life's mission and purpose. He helps you learn to define your gift - whether it's being a problem solver, a people-connector, a whiz with numbers, or having an eye for colors. He makes clear that your job is not your gift; you may use it in your work, but it can also be used in your marriage or relationship, your community, and throughout every aspect of your life. Throughout, he provides a set of principles that will help you direct your gift. "The scriptures say your gift will make room for you and put you in the presence of great men," Steve reminds us. "This book is your roadmap to identifying your gift, acknowledging it, perfecting it, connecting it to a vehicle, and riding it to success. Because Success is the gift you already have."
Funny yet firm, told in Steve's warm and insightful voice, and peppered with anecdotes from his own life, practical advice, and truthful insights, this essential guide can help you transform your life and achieve everything you were born to.

I very much enjoyed listening to this short audio book and definitely plan to listen to it again so that I can work on some of the activities provided.
Another great book from Steve Harvey - moving, engaging and funny. Excellent listen, full of great, practical and inspirational insight into successful thinking. I wish everyone would chose a career that way - people would do what they love the most and (just maybe) everyone would be happy
Yes - and I nearly did. Since I'm listening to audiobooks in my car, I really couldn't wait to put it on again and drive.
If you know the path you're on, or recognise you have a gift/ talent in a particular area, this book will help you I believe. It's very motivational, and makes you think about your goals and how to achieve them.
There is only one small section of the book I did not like and this was the section where he speaks about first class, and pipes on about it for a while, you'll know what I mean when you get there. This aside its a really great book and I can hear the voice now reading to me so passionately and with belief it makes you want more.
Mr. Harvey covered sacrifice, time management, emotional management, finances, family balance, naysayers, and many other topics that one would face while going after their dreams. I enjoyed this book.
"My mentor from afar..."
I got this book because I liked how Steve Harvey "re-branded" himself.
It helps me remember that it is still not too late for me to reclaim some of the success I once had...
...or better yet, start anew and achieve other goals I set out to achieve.
Well done Steve.
Love it! This book offers practical and easy to comprehend advice for those looking to improve themselves.
"Really a refresh mind sparkle"
I love about do what you like even if it is clean bathroom you can be successful, it reminds us to do what we love what brings happiness and fulfillment!!
I love being a massage Therapist, I do also body structure, people say i glow when i work, and makes me so happy does not feel like work to me... I am also a healer and Reiki Master and people always put me down confusing massage with "happy ending" and that discourage me to pursue my dream.. but now I got a burst of that sparkle to ignore the ignorant s and be big on what I do!!
At the top, im a black male so I can relate to Mr Harvey and some of his struggles
Realizing I have my very own Gift that I can use as my foundation to build on to fulfill me
To the point and extremely valuable insight.
something you can listen to multiple times and should.
"Loved it learned alot!"
He gave list and steps and it was easy to listen to.
the most memorable moments were the story about what his teacher and father said to him and the notable moments about Oprah and how she continued on with OWN even with the haters and people saying she shouldn't have left her show.
It went quicker listening to it being read because I did my dishes and cooked while listening to it.
The story about his boss telling him he was a fool and the friend tell him to continue forth in his dream.
This is an impressive and outstanding motivational book. Highly recommended for anyone who wishes to get ahead in life.
I enjoyed hearing his views on success and life. not only is he amusing but he's sincere and encouraging.
"A must read....."
I am not able to say since I have only experienced the audio version. But, I will be picking up the print copy for myself and as gifts.
I like the fact that he breaks down the SMART goals and how Mr. Harvey uses a vision board. Also, advise about keeping the goal a priority.
I do like having the voice as oppose to the book. It makes it easier for me to listen in the car. Mr. Hodge has a nice reading voice.
I would say how to separate what is pertinent and/or important to keep in your life to assist with your purpose.
I do understand of the time restraints, but I would recommend that Mr. Harvey does a recording of his book(s). Sometimes the message comes better when it is delivered directly from the author.
