From the Back Cover

Steve Harvey—New York Times bestselling author, nationally syndicated television and radio host, accomplished entrepreneur, and esteemed philanthropist—shares his personal principles of success, in this enlightening work that will guide you to a life of riches.

Steve Harvey was not always the dynamic television host and internationally renowned funny man whom we know and love today. It took him years to recognize his personal gift—his unique talent of making people laugh, and listen—and even then he still struggled, at one point being homeless and living out of his car. But through it all he remained focused on his goals, using his gift and his tenacity to achieve unimaginable success. And now, in Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success, he's paying it forward to help you live your dreams and create your own legacy.

Every person is born with a gift—whether it's the ability to solve problems, connect with people, or create beauty with your hands—and that gift can never be taken away from you. You need only to harness it, build it, and attach it to the right vehicle, using it in your job, your marriage, your community, and every aspect of your life. With Steve's easy advice and his sensible yet innovative principles, Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success is your road map to identifying your gift, perfecting it, and letting it transform your life.

Finding success and creating a legacy is not easy—it takes time, and courage. With this essential guide, and through Steve's warm humor and remarkable insights, you can harness your gift and create the life you've always wanted. You need only to open this book and begin.

Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success will inspire you. It will motivate you. And it will change your life.

This is an absolute great book HOWEVER I wouldn't recommend getting the kindle edition or any type of ebook version of it because its also a workbook/journal and in those formats you have no where to write your thoughts and ideas. Buy the paperback or hard cover.

Many of us know Steve Harvey from his work on a variety of media platforms, including television, radio, and online. He is a ubiquitous face in American media, and he also happens to be one of the most charismatic personalities around. He takes that charisma and sage wisdom and packages into Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success. As one of the most successful Americans today, Harvey certainly knows a thing or two about how to get things done. He also knows how to make you laugh along the way. This book is full of warm, funny, and powerful anecdotes and advice that almost everyone can follow to achieve their dreams. Harvey is not a
traditional self-help guru, which makes his advice ring truer than most others. Following his
action plan, I've been able to turn my life into much more of a success.

I've also used a book called 27 Quick Life Transformation Tips: Simple & Effective Methods For Making This Your Best Year Ever. It takes a similar "no-nonsense" approach to dispensing basic life wisdom that can prove to be profoundly transformative. Thetransformation tips are nothing short of brilliant and the action plans are easy to follow and
maintain. Advice in the book ranges from business expertise to keeping your body in shape and healthy. It's a great book that gives you a holistic look at how to change your life in short order. Indeed, many of the tips don't require a lengthy time investment. You can make direct, positive changes in your life and work your way toward success in no time.

If you don't think you can learn anything from a TV game show host or a book of 27 tips, then you would be patently wrong.

Are you still struggling to be the best "you" you can be? Have you taken a lot of dead-ends that (clearly) led nowhere? Have you read a lot of (basically useless) self-help books and nothing's changed? Well, you might want to give Harvey's new tome a try.

I love Steve Harvey. Always have since I first saw him at Hilarities when we both lived in Cleveland (different addresses :). He's funny, positive, and high-energy and genuinely seems to care about "people" and his audience. It's one of the reasons many of us root for him to do well. He's had his up's and down's in life (working on his third marriage, careers highs and lows, etc.), but these just make him more "human" and easier to relate to. What's great about this book is that he has a specific prescription for all of us to be happy and successful: "Find Your Gift and Live in Your Gift." He believes that each of us has a gift from God and when you find it and tap into it you will live the life that God meant for you and be joyous and successful. His message is very different than "O's', which says "if you really want something, the universe will 'conspire' to give it to you." That puts the onus for success and happiness on some outside "ether" instead of placing it where it belongs, with each of ourselves.
.
I haven't finished it yet (just started it this a.m.), but I wanted to get a (+) review out there for folks who aren't sure if this is just "another generic self-help book." No, it's not. It's full of details about his life and how he tapped into his gift to overcome personal, emotional, and financial failure. It gives clues on how to find your own gift (including, asking God). If you like Steve Harvey and his fun, bubbly, "can-do" 'tude, you'll love this book. If you don't like him but are curious about his hypothesis, you'll get a lot out of it as well. You may find your gift by first finding this book!

Not to sound corny, but Steve Harvey's book lays out your road-map to success in life. This book is not another rah-rah, think and get rich kind of book. It offers a step-by-step map to reach your goals in life, without compromising who you are or your values. Steve's book covers all of the bases--defining your gift, facing fears, handling nay-sayers, and finding your path to a rich and successful. His advice comes from his past failures and successes. A real gem for those of us that have spent countless hours dreaming of success. Time to stop dreaming and start creating my successful life!

The way Steve breaks down the principles of success is amazing. He gives you a step by step process to making sure all your dreams and ambitions come through if you follow his proven system. What's incredible is how he gives you a glimpse of of his life, the good, the bad, the ups and downs. His transparency about his success and failures really resonated with me. Thank you Mr Harvey for continuing to be a blessing to so many individuals. May God continue to bless you so that you can continue to pour into others.
Sincerely,

K. Kirkman

The advise in this book is priceless. Words from Steve's own father as well as Steve's own experiences kept me intrigued throughout this book! Now I will go back and apply each technique to my own life!
