My father was a coal miner, and worked hard every day of his life. He taught me the value of a good day’s work, how to be a man and to do what you say you’re going to do. My mother was a Sunday School teacher. She instilled in me the importance of having a relationship with God, and showing gratitude. She always told me, “You are blessed to be a blessing.” That your success means nothing, if you don’t show anyone else how to achieve it.
Every successful person must do this.
Steve meets a lot of people with big professional aspirations, who don’t pursue their dreams because of a fear of failure. Steve launched a new segment called “Should I Jump,” with MELISSA, who has always dreamed of opening her own hair salon, but is afraid to leave her stable corporate gig as a financial aid advisor. Her fantasies of starting her own business have only gotten stronger since seeing a viral video of Steve talking about jumping to pursue your dreams.

"Essentialism isn't about getting more things done in less time...it's about getting only the right things done."
The director from Little Big Shots sat me down with his British accent and said, "Mr. Harvey I'd like to tell you something…and you can tell me to f*ck off and I will...but you’re absolutely the busiest person I've ever met in my life and I’m concerned about you. I want you to read a book called Essentialism.
You know what? This book along with my anniversary trip helped changed the whole way I think. The basics of essentialism is this:
Everybody must do the things that are essential to your life to make you happy or successful. You must eliminate everything that doesn’t make you happy or doesn’t lead to your success.
