I really enjoyed the book and I am inspired by Steve Harvey's story. It is amazing how many people tend to look at someone achieving mega success but not many people will stop and ask "How did the person get there?"
If you are not familiar and have not heard about Steve Harvey, well, he is a very famous comedian, talk show host, author and an inspiring man in the entertainment industry in USA. Since young, he was told that he would never amount to anything.
So the first thing to note is the voices that you hear. Everybody wants to say something to you, so it is our responsibility to filter which voices to hear. Many people will speak negativity to your life. Do not accept those voices. It is not worthy to sacrifice your future just to keep a friendship or relationship which is negative and destructive.
In this particular book, Steve Harvey he clarifies very well the point of discovering your gift. His gift is to make people laugh. He said, incorporating your gift into your life and sharing it with others will bring you joy, passion, and a new vigor for living life to the fullest.
But what was the turning point in his life? When he was tired of being tired, of being poor, sick, and going nowhere. This is that point in life that we make a decision to make changes.
It is never too late to make changes. As I mentioned earlier, one of the first steps is to eliminate the negative voices in your life. Many times, the most negative voice in your life is your own voice. While writing these notes, my son, who is five years old, is playing at my back on the bed doing something with the pillows. Suddenly I heard him say to himself "I am a failure". Immediately I stopped writing, turned to him and seriously corrected him to change his declaration to "I am victorious, I am a winner, I am more than a conqueror." He is trained to be positive but because he failed to stack the pillows in a way that he wanted, so quickly he declared "I am a failure". That's is the reason we need to catch ourselves talking negative and catch others too.
That is all I want to share for now. Be blessed and make your dreams come true.
