  • Mareng John says:

    I was losing hope in life but thanks to uncle Steve Harvey for the motivational speech…God bless you

  • SPK says:

    As a 66 year old attorney/ CPA who’s been around the block a few times, you nailed it Steve. As one of my old high school teachers used to say, success is 1.0% inspiration, 99% perspiration

  • D. J. Savick says:

    Generational poverty has been like a curse in my family. Fueled by low education and too many kids. As a person who knows what it’s like to break out of poverty, I can tell you that everything Steve is saying is absolutely true. I was the first person to graduate college in my family. It took 12 years, but I graduated with honors and debt free. I had a great career and did well enough to retired early. I can add a few bits of advice as well: Don’t be afraid of failure. Endeavor to persevere. Don’t let the thoughts, observations, comments, opinions, and judgements of others tell you how to live your life. Don’t wait for opportunities to be given to you, make them yourself. Learn. Learn. Learn. If school won’t teach you what you want to know, educate yourself. Knowledge is power but power is useless without action.

    • Bully Maguire says:

      Respect for you. People like you deserve respect and love from their family. I currently just graduated from elementary with high honors (95%). Now I try my best to go on forward with life. High school definitely is more advanced. The development of my mentality and perseverance must start now. I know it’s going to be harder in the future. Even with a high grade, I consider this a distraction as overconfidence is a hindrance to truly unlock my highest potential. I’m lucky to have good parents and important things in life. Now with a complete family, I must not disappoint them, they are my source of motivation. I pledge to myself that I will strive for success and get success no matter what obstacle is in front of me.

    • Lily Jessica McCabe says:

      Incredible words

    • Lights, Camera, Kalimah!! says:

      Your story is so empowering and meaningful to me. I’m still in college and it’s taking me a while to graduate due to financial issues. Fueled also with the death of my father life, school has been difficult but praise God I’m making it work. However, sometimes I fall victim to insecurity and comparing myself to my friends who have gone on to graduate. Sometimes I feel like I’m never going to get to where I want to be but stories like Steve’s and yours fill me with hope. I just have to get climbing those stairs to open the door to my well deserved life, no matter how long it takes🙏🏾💪🏾

    • Unknown KB says:

      “Knowledge is power but power is useless without action”… This last sentence will always be in my mind…

    • Typhoon says:
