Book Review: ‘Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success’ by Steve Harvey

Act Like a Success, Think Like a SuccessAct Like a Success, Think Like a Success by Steve Harvey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success” by Steve Harvey is a quick read on focusing on your ambition and defining your gift. Nothing new is divulged, but it’s a good reminder on working on yourself to become successful.

His philosophy is God gave you a gift, so use it. Like many self-help books, there are questions at the end of some of the chapters to make sure you realize your gift and act on using your gift for success. The back of the book goes into his other philosophy where if you have enough time to sleep, take others’ commands, and relax, then you won’t be successful. In fact, he was criticized for an old video conveying this same message today. Perfect timing.

His trajectory to his success is rare. Not everyone can follow his advice and see the same success, so though it’s interesting to hear how he got where he got, it still came off as out of touch, which again sometimes he’s criticized for.

Overall, it’s a good refresher on questioning your actions to ensure they’re leading you to your idea of success. The shortness and the simplicity helps with the motivation.
