Teaching Moments | Motivated


– I take all my moments
in life, good and bad, and I use them as teaching moments. Because that’s exactly what they all are. If you get really smart, everything that happens to you, you should make a note of it. Because everything happens
to you for a specific reason. There are no just haps in life. Every dark moment that you’ve ever had, is preparing you for
someplace God is taking you. That way you gotta, you can start feeling a little bit better. Somebody taught this
to me a long time ago, he said Steve, in order to get to the
life of your dreams, you’re gonna have to learn how to get comfortable
being uncomfortable. When you hear people say all the time, I don’t wanna do nothing that
I’m not comfortable with, this person’s in trouble. Because whatever your comfort zone is, if you stay in your comfort zone, that’s where you’ll fail. If your comfort zone is this big and you stay in your comfort zone, that’s where you’ll fail. In order to succeed in life, you have to step outside
of your comfort zone. But I wanna tell you
something about yourself. All of you are equipped to live outside of your comfort zone. God has proven it to you your entire life. I’m gonna show you something
that he’s done for you, that you haven’t really
paid a lot of attention to. See, a lot of people are afraid to jump, a lot of people are
afraid to take chances, a lot of people are afraid
to put things up for risk, and you shouldn’t be. Now you can be afraid, but you should learn
how to go ahead anyhow. See, because let me show you
something about yourself. For all the bad days you’ve ever had, for every day that you thought
you wasn’t gonna get through, for every period in your life you did not see no way you could
come out on the other side, your track record for surviving
them bad days is 100%. You have survived every
single one of them. Your track record for surviving
bad days y’all is 100%. And that’s pretty good. (applause) You can’t name one bad
day you ain’t got through. When you lost your mother, and you felt like your
whole world was crumblin’, ’cause I thought I was gonna die man. When my momma left here, boy let me tell you, that’s the worst I’ve ever
felt in my life to date. I’m 62 years old, but the day they told
me my momma was gone, when I had to pull the
plug on that machine, and I had to tell that to the doctor, it was the worst period of my life, I thought I was gonna die. I survived it. I want you to think about
all them bad moments you had that looked like you wasn’t gonna make it. And then I want you to ask yourself, well why did I make it? Well it’s real simple now, it’s simply because God
ain’t through with you yet. (applause) Everything you’re going through is God preparing you
for what he has for you.

  1. Every monday I canโ€™t wait for Steveโ€™s wise words. And heโ€™s absolutely right also this time. There are some moments in my life when I think โ€œwhy does this must happen to me?โ€, but now I get it! God is preparing me! And everything suddenly changes… I see the world differently. Everytime I go out of my comfort zone, I add a little piece to my armor. You know what? I think Iโ€™m gonna make it! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  2. When they ask us how are we still smiling after all we have been through, its because we have learnt to be comfortable in being uncomfortable.

  3. My God, if I don't identify with that statement; the day my mother died! It was the hardest thing to make a decision to let her go! The doctors and nurse's keep telling me pumping medicine's in her to keep her alive was not good. But I told them I wanted her pastor to see her before I made the decision, he arrived and went in. He came out, and said reverend let her go; I went in the room and all of these monitors were attached. Kinda reminded me of an old Star Trek episode. I was told to read to her the first ten verses of Psalms 51, after which I prayed and said to her that it was going to be alright she could leave! All of a sudden, she started bleeding from her nose, and all of the alarms began to ring, buzz, and sound off! The medical team did as they do probably hundreds of times a day. They ran to her besides, tilted the bed head down, started chest compressions, and then the shock. I stood there in utter dismay! It is not something I'd wish on anyone to stand there and can do nothing to stop the advance of death's grip upon your love one. There I stood, a preacher, police officer, and weightlifter! Nothing from this natural world had power at that moment. I literally felt helpless, and just like that, she was gone! Absolutely stunned, numb not knowing my next move. Wanting to move, but didn't know in which direction? I was in shock! When I came to my senses, I asked for a phone to call my aunt, and as soon I heard her voice, all I could do was scream! Yep, that was the worse day of my life; in a few months it will be twenty-two years, but I remember it as if it were yesterday, and the tears are real! But I've made it!!!! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’– I'd like to believe she's watching over my sister, brother, and I! It's only by the Grace of God!!!

  4. Would have been better if he kept it secular…….it is a good message that could have been great without the old time religion……everything happens for a reason is BS too…….

  5. Every time I listen to your motivational speech, feel like I can do it and you guys here watching this video and reading comments I must tell you that, you can achieve anything in life.

  6. Thank you for motivating today suddenly i really feel like moving. My spirit is jumping! Stay Blessed Steve Harvey and family๐Ÿ’ž

  7. People will ALWAYS be searching for some type of happiness in this world if they are a child of God and NEVER put him 1st.PERIOD!! You're gonna be groping in darkness until submit your life to his Law's,Statutes,and Commandments. Success is defined by looking at your neighbor wishing you have what they have. I wouldn't suggest anyone to do anything that their spirit don't agree with. Especially not for money.

  8. I was just telling my son about a blessing when my kids were younger and I didn't associate it with God at the time but he has brought me a long way. He must have something amazing for me and I just need to stop doubting him

  9. I'm so glad I found this page and stayed subscribe to it because these motivational videos are truly helpful. Thanks Steve.

  10. Fear is the virus at the moment and anxiety is fear too. If we tell our brain to shut up, just relax then surrender and allow ourselves to be walked through the door… ahh, itโ€™s magic! ๐ŸŒŸ

  11. Steve you know the god is among us you know you see us at this moment right he know what I'm typing right now you know ?

    And sorry for bad English

  12. Everyone is looking at what Steve has to say, I'm looking at the job I can be paid for in the backround! You're messaging has two sides Steve. One for the working man and another for the message.()

  13. Mr. Harvey
    I came across with your videos couple months ago and I watch
    when I get time. You are very nice person and I wish you the best. God Bless you and your family. Best Regards from Turkey

  14. Anyone ever told u that u gotta go through HELL to get to HEAVEN. Unfortunately Heaven and Hell DOES NOT EXIST!!!!

  15. Hey Uncle Steve,
    I believe that the teaching moments make or break us depending on our perspectives on the results of the tragedies that we face. My mum died at my dad's funeral in December, 2014. I am still here and the last time I checked my survival track record is a 100%. I started watching your hey Steve videos and the motivation ones a year ago. Do you know what? I found my dad and role model. That's you, Steve. Thanks for giving an orphan like me the right energy and motivation for my life's journey. I love and appreciate you. I have an internet Daddy๐Ÿ˜Š

  16. Iโ€™m here watching this video for a reason just like most of you…I wish and pray you guys all the best reach your goals and ambitions ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ we should always listen to uncle Steve โค๏ธ

  17. The real scary place in life is when one is comfortable enough not to change, and not dis-satisfied enough to change.

  18. God is not preparing a blessing for you; he is preparing YOU, for the blessing! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜‡

  19. If you stay in your comfort zone thatโ€™s where youโ€™ll fail, in order to succeed in life you gotta step outta your comfort zone๐Ÿ—ฃ๐Ÿ’ฏ

  20. Self confidence dont get u near as far anymore it all depends on a college degree unfortunately. Which is dumb because all my bosses end come up to me and asking for my opinion on the job at hand because they have never really done it. Thay just got a piece of paper that says they smart from a local college but I can't advance without that piece of paper smh. Hope everyone else has better luck then me lol

  21. Steve has some motivational stuff. But no matter what anyone says god cant help you physically or medically. Only mentally. Also you cant just always say you have all this great stuff because god helped and allowed you to have it. God doesn't wake up to that alarm clock every morning to go to work, you do. You have to give yourself credit for what you have accomplished instead of constantly saying god made it happen. Things do happen for a reason, and those reasons are what actions you took previously.

  22. Amen Steve๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ I thought I was going to die when my mom died 3 yrs ago. Nothing as bad as that. I know I can make it through anything now with the grace of God and her watching over me.๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

  27. steve God bless you for what your doing,i believe you will read this.thanks for visiting my country ghana,see you in america soon.

  28. If only all men could be like Steve Harvey, the world would surely be a much better place. Scarcity promotes value, that's why his caliber is valued so much. Finding people with so much wealth and still go out and assist others like Keanu Reeves, who gave away 90% of his salary to accommodate Al Pacino on "The Devil's Advocate, are rarer than radium. If you encounter one of these kind of people(species) count yourself extremely fortunate.

  29.

  30. Romans 8:28 โ€œ And we know thatGod causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.โ€ Amen. P.S. Great talk Steve, absolutely great ๐Ÿ‘

  31. I see you as a Prince Steve. As a matter of fact before you leave to settle back in Africa please contact me I have a proposal for the Demolition of poverty.

  32. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพโค๏ธ needed this

  33. Mr. Harvey wether I meet you or not…you are on my list of affirmations that I read every morning and night. Your words are truly blessed thank you for Sharing positive moments in the lives of many.

  34. Amen brother Steve. I thought the same when my mother passed. I am the youngest of 12 and not one wanted to help me with mom. I feel my mom's other children were dysfunctional and I was right. There was only one that would have helped me and she passed away when I was 16 of leukemia. Her and I were very close. I prayed to god, my sister and father to give me health, strength, guidance and motivation to care for her…and he did. Now I am starting a new chapter to continue my purpose and never let him down. My mom always told me, "The good lord will take care of me for taking care of me", I see it happing and I get emotional because I do not feel I deserve anything special. I only did what I felt what was right.
