In his #1 New York Times
bestseller Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success
, Steve Harvey explains how you can achieve your dreams using the gift you already have —something you do the best at with very little effort. No one can take your gift away, you are the only one who can use it—or waste it and this is by itself both a liberating and scary thought at the same time.
Steve shows you how that gift holds the greatest chance at success and helps you to learn how to define your gift—whether that might be (problem solver? people-connector?).
He also explains that your job is not your gift; your gift can be used in your work, but it can also be used in every aspect of your life.
The book is your road map to identifying what your gift is, acknowledging it, perfecting it, connecting it to a vehicle, and riding it to success, and in every page there are anecdotes from his own life, practical advice, and insights. Steve Harvey is definitely an accomplished storyteller and you can almost hear his voice ringing in your ears in his typical funny drawl (if you have never seen him in action, go on You tube, priceless).
The book is broken down into 4 sections:
The book holds your hand through a life improvement process.
Once concept that I found particularly useful was “ Taking The Lid Off The Jar ” (Chapter 3): inspiring information on why it is important to avoid being boxed in by one’s external circumstances, their race, gender, economic background, age. Watch you on You Tube and then get the book.
No nonsense, funny and most certainly useful.
