She asked him how he would describe himself...

He says he's a 'former player'.

But now this father and grandfather has written influential and inspirational books.

In his book Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success, Steve Harvey tells you how to achieve your dreams using the gift you already have, and has inspired many readers.

Relebogile asked him how he was able to take the darkest parts of his life and make them so positive.

Steve Harvey, author, comedian and actor

Everything you are going through is preparing you for what you asked for.

Steve Harvey, author, comedian and actor
