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.

People have got to understand, where you are right now, will soon be your past. Where you are right now is temporary. It don't matter where you at. It only matters where you going. So I've never let my darkest moments define who I was because I'm not going to be this much longer.

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

You have to have darkness in your life, so when the light comes you recognise it and you appreciate it.
