This week, comedian and television personality Steve Harvey took to Twitter to share his advice on how people can live up to their God-given potential in their lives and careers. 

Harvey, who began his career as a stand-up comedian, is well known for hosting a daytime talk show that bore his name, as well as the “Family Feud” gameshow, the Miss Universe competition, and a new show titled “Judge Steve Harvey,” which is a “People’s Court” style courtroom show wherein Harvey presides over arbitration disputes. 

Harvey has spoken about being a Christian publicly on a number of occasions, and his advice to people often includes an element of faith and his belief in God. 

During an episode of his talk show, Harvey said, “Listen to me: talk to God often, even if you’re not perfect. Just talk to Him every day.”

“It’s not going to make your life easy. I made a t-shirt one time that said, ‘Faith don’t make it easy; faith makes it possible,’” he went on to say.

On Wednesday evening (July 20), Harvey shared his advice for people who are finding it difficult to remain motivated at work. 

“If you are waking up in the morning and you can’t stand waking up ’cause you don’t want to go to your job, it’s because you are not living in your God given gift,” Harvey said. “God created you to have a life of abundance to wake up in a joyous spirit.”

A few hours later, Harvey followed up with a tweet that highlighted the importance of gratitude.

“The reason some people aren’t getting what they want in life is ’cause they ain’t even grateful for what they have,” Harvey said. “If God gives you something, and you’re not grateful for it, why would he give you some more stuff to not be grateful for?”
