Life is a matter of choices. You can repeat the same dull routine every day for years or decide to look within yourself for the special gift that will unlock your potential. Let comedian and talk-show host Steve Harvey, a rags-to-riches victor himself, inspire you to reach for the stars. Now a successful stand-up comedian, the popular host of his own TV talk show and steward of the game show Family Feud, Harvey was once homeless, choked with debt and going nowhere. Then he discovered his gift – his ability to make people laugh – and with determination, he achieved wealth and fame. Harvey’s relentless pursuit of success is the cornerstone of this inspirational advice manual sprinkled with elements of autobiography. The key to fulfilling your potential, he maintains, is identifying the inherent, unique gift that sets you apart from everyone else, and then putting it to work. getAbstract recommends his sensible, realistic and heartfelt advice, which will make you feel as if you’ve found a smart, sincere friend, not just a smart guy on TV.
