Publisher's Summary

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

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.

Really a refresh mind sparkle

What did you love best about Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success?

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!!

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

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!!

A must read.....

Would you consider the audio edition of Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success to be better than the print version?

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.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success?

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.

What does Mike Hodge bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

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.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

I would say how to separate what is pertinent and/or important to keep in your life to assist with your purpose.

Any additional comments?

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.

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

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

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.
