American comedian and television host, Steve Harvey has reminisced on his life and career so far and given credit to God.
The six-time Daytime Emmy Award winner first performed stand-up comedy on October 8, 1985, at the Hilarities Comedy Club in Cleveland, Ohio. In the late ’80s, Harvey was homeless for three years.He slept in his 1976 Ford when not performing gigs that provided a hotel, and he showered at gas stations or swimming pool showers.
In one of his recent shows, Harvey took the opportunity to inspire people’s lives by sharing his story of grass to grace. He said God had made him successful despite the fact that he had no solid education.
Steve acknowledged he was not good in school but learning to identify his gifts, mapping his vision and trusting God had gotten him to the peak of success.
“A simple principle of success is that it has to be written down somewhere. Oprah was on TV for 30 years talking of these vision boards,” Harvey said.
He added that he learned a few scriptures that made sense to his ear, one being:
“You have not, because you ask not. Faith without works is dead. Write the vision and make a plan”. “I did it without an education, I did it without nobodies money, all I did is I worked, wrote my visions down, read them morning and night,”
