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.

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.
