“You’re going to be sheer greatness because you’ve learned how to wake up.” I’ll never forget when John Walker told me that almost 40 years ago.
I was going through a rough period in my life. I had just been laid off and was on unemployment. At the time I signed up for Amway and my sponsor would call me at 5:30AM every morning. I had a bad attitude when he called, I was laid off and couldn’t see my future and it was 5:30AM! One day he called and said “I’m disappointed in you, when are you going to change your attitude? You wake up with a bad attitude, which pretty much explains why you’re having a lot of bad days. I hate that about you, you have so much potential.”
Now that cut me deep, I don’t like anybody – thinking I’m something but I’m acting like I’m not. So the next morning I flip the script. Watch what happens next. Here’s the reason how I became the AM morning radio personality. God turned me into the morning man. ‘The Steve Harvey Morning Show.’
