At One Point In Time You Have To Take A Chance On You

When you take a chance on you, you're taking a chance on God!

We are all created in God’s image. When you take a chance on you, you’re taking a chance on God! We are all born with a gift at birth, use your gift appropriately in life! Your gift will make room for you! Darrius Simmons recently appeared on the #SteveTVShow, he was born with only four fingers. Darrius taught himself to play piano from YouTube, in high school he was invited to play piano at Carnegie Hall! That’s how you use your gift! That’s a perfect example of your gift making room for you!

  1. Wow Aman I pray for strength and support to use my gift. Thank you God for day to day. Love you Mr Steve Harvey from South Africa.

  2. Steve,
    I am Neelam Chanda and I live in Sacramento California. I was born and raised in India, and came to the United States in 2001.
    I saw one of your videos, where you said ” You have not, because you ask not.” Well, I am asking you for justice. I kept telling the truth everytime and sharing my experiences based on facts. I have endured so much pain and suffering and I want just one person in America to believe me and understand my perspective before I go back home.
    One of my experience was a search in my house conducted without a warrant in 2006. When I told my husband ( now ex because he thought I was delusional. You tell me Steve, if an invasion of privacy is done, isnt that a crime? Just because it needed to be covered up, I was labeled a liar and many other things.
    In the same year, I walked round and round in Menlo Park, as if I was a guinea pig for an illegal experiment conducted without an informed consent.
    I wish to meet you, and share my personal experiences with you. What saddens me the most is, the currency says in God we trust, yet so many times the godly people chose not to give me justice. Everytime I was doing well, I had to prove my self. This has being going on for 18 years now, and I have had consecutive life events including the death of my father who I loved so dearly.
    I hope and pray that I can share my experiences with you, because I am touched by your words and remind me of my father.
    Now I live alone in Sacramento, hating myself for trusting others at face value.
    I just home I get a chance to meet you and share with you my experiences, and then you decide If I deserve justice or not. This is my dream to meet you, just to vent, instead of bottling up these feelings of hurt.
    I am trusting God, that he will give me a final chance to prove my innocence to you.

  3. Hey my name is Kermitra but people call me kermit I will love to meet u in person

  4. This is my one shot Mr. Harvey!
    I have gone through many hard trials in my life. They range from cancer at 23 years old to being homeless with two degrees and applying for over 200 jobs and no called me for an interview for three years. Watch things go away in double. Abused in marriages to the most recent was having a reaction to a drug Levaquin that caused me not to walk for a period of time. I filed for Social Security Disability and have been denied two times. In the midst of all this I wrote a book called” Poems while being processed” which is still at the publication company because once again no money to pay to get it released. What gives me hope is to know the testimonies of you Steve Harvey, Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey. I tell myself God has no respective person if He did for you all surely He will do it for me one day. I to had to lose it all to answer the call. Thank you all for being the trail blazers for many of us! You give us hope!

  9. Steve, how do you find your gift?? PLEASE!!

  10. Amen hallelujah Amen

  11. All my life, I have worked 2 jobs. To provide for myself. Never asking anyone for anything. Then at 44 yrs. Old . I met a man. After 6 yrs. I found out he was on drugs. I tried leaving him , evicting him etc… made several calls and visits to our Sheriff Dept. They wouldn’t help me. Had recordings of him and his buddy saying they would cut my throat and put me in a river. Police said because I didn’t have their faces in the videos. There was nothing they could do. After years of being scared and sleeping with my money, debit cards,keys,dentures. Etc… I mustard up the courage to leave. The police told he and I, we neither one could move anything out of the house. Until a legal separation, eviction or divorce was filed. ( we were not married ) I took a few personal items with me. ( meds, toothbrush, few clothes ) that’s all police would let me leave with. I went to work. Went back to my house next day to get more clothes. He had burnt everything I owned. The police wouldn’t do a report cause we lived together. I couldn’t file home owner insurance cause no police report. I had to start over again at 52 yrs. Old. With 3 pair pants, 4 shirts, 1 pair of shoes. It’s been so very hard. So my thought to everyone. NEVER GIVE UP. AND NEVER EVER LET A DRUG ADDICT OR ANYONE PUT YOU IN DANGER. LEAVE!!!! I STAYED FOR YEARS FROM FEAR AND NOT WANTING TO RUIN MY CREDIT. IN THE END I LOST EVERYTHING I OWN…. BUT, IM ALIVE .

  24. Post retirement I had to get over myself, loss of parents, loss of niece and loss of a 6 CM fibroid, had to go through a period of being able to walk again too, signed up for comedy lessons, they will throw me on stage June 1st, restarted my Marlenes Mannah Blog Talk Radio and just finished an interview with a 98 year old. Love telling jokes. People don’t know that side of me. I used to work in a warehouse picking stock as a single parent, went to school got my BA in Psychology, then Masters in Adm, got married, divorced, 25 years later, remarried again and just celebrated 10 years of married. Wrote a book emptying my soul out called Loosed: You can live again, now reimagining and restructuring my life at 59. If I can do it, the young generations can do it. I’ve done plays Inlaws/Outlaws (on youtube), Monologue in Vagina Monologues, was an extra in A Question of Faith, Greenleaf (appeared as an extra in 2 Seasons), Barbershop 3: The Next Cut; 10 episodes of HLN CNN when they had Mock jurors (volunteered for that assignment), The Haves and Have Nots, If I should die before I wake (Eric Ayala), A Madea Christmas (The Play), If loving you is wrong, and Lord knows where he’s taking me next for his glory. Thanks for being a blessing to so many. Realized this season God will use me through collaboration. He’s orchestrating with whom.

  25. Just retired from govt with 37 years of public service. Worked Obama Hiring Reform Projects, RRA 98 Restructuring Project for the IRS and dedicated many years to setting pay through classification and organization design for thousands of employees during my federal career.

  29. Thank you, I need to hear that, I was with this men for 17 years and I found the whole time he was never faithful to me. I want to be happy without a man just happy with me. He was the money maker and now I have not a dollar in my pocket and 11 year old son to take care, but I have joy, i rather be happy and broke. I may be at the bottom now but that mean new beginning with new opportunities to enter into.

  30. Hi Steve! My name is Ian Parsons, I’m a current student at Liberty University pushing towards my graduation Fall of 2019 where I’m studying Christian Ministry. In the midst of my schooling, I’ve lost my job, my marriage, and now homeless living out of my car in Tempe, Arizona in the parking lot of Lowe’s. Another semester is upon me starting May 2019 and I really don’t understand why all of this is happening to me as I approach graduation but, I hold on taking it one day at a time. Although I face these odds, I still continue to hold on to my small business, my dreams of making my Mom proud through my gift, and seeing people smile through my gift where I create, make, and sell custom bow ties/neckties/accessories for babies to adults. I started my small business my final semester at a Community College in Virginia when my professor saw something in me by giving me a specific assignment according to the way that I carried myself which was always wearing a bow tie/necktie. Since then, I wake up and go to sleep thinking about ways to help others through the sewn pieces of material that I work with.
    My Mom told me as a child “Ian God gave you many gifts and talents, give them back to Him in all that you do and He will always take care of you”. That’s what I’ve held on to for almost 40 years. I’ve given no matter if I were able or if it were my last. Even now, living out of my car, I carry my sewing machine and material with me, sometimes setting up at local parks where I make my bow ties by connecting a battery pack to my car, plugging in my sewing machine, and working. Where there’s a will, I know that God will provide me with a way! No matter the quantity, I always help others by blessing them by undercutting my posted prices because of what my Mom told me as a child, I love seeing others smile when they receive my artwork. What I do with my bow ties is totally unique, all are handmade, and I put my all into each one. I hold on each day knowing that my breakthrough is coming. I’ve followed you for years and no matter what you’ve faced you kept your head up and pushed through. My Faith in God, What my Mom taught me, your examples, and the smiles of my customers are what keeps me going everyday. Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated, cherished, and passed along to others who face the same obstacles that I face today by never giving up and holding on to see dreams come true. Thank you Mr. Harvey for taking the time to read this short version of my story and being an inspiration to others like myself. Much love!

  31. I never comment on things because I feel like it never reaches the individual. I know there are usually people who are hired to attend to social media. But, I am going to take a chance (and break my own rule) and say Thank You. I am a single mom who could write a laundry list of disappointments, but every day I pull myself up and try to find positives in a negative world. If not for me, for my daughter. A few years ago, I finally took a chance on God and me for her. I removed myself from an unhealthy marriage to give her and me a healthy start. I have only made it because of God and my family. Countless times, He has taken care of me when I couldn’t take care of myself. He has never once removed His hand from me even when I didn’t deserve it. I know He has greater things in store for me if I just take more chances on Him and me. I know He will provide physically and financially for us. I plan to retire in 6 years from teaching (at 52) for 30 years and I believe the next chapter in my life will find me living His purpose for my life. I just have to figure out what direction that is. Mr. Harvey, your videos speak directly to me. I know I am one of many, but for a few minutes I feel like you know exactly what I am going through. Thank you for being a real person and not just a celebrity. Thank you for taking the time to be an inspiration to me.

  32. Thank You, Steve Keep The Faith!

  33. I am Amanda Nongogo from South Africa. Mr Harvey, I love you! You motivate me each and every time I watch you. Your motivation videos are just life changing, you are real and the advice you give is real. I can not tell you how many times after listening to you I have been motivated to go back out there and try harder, give my best. And you are so funny, I can never get tired of watching you!
