Why Steve Harvey Says Success Is Like Pulling a Wagon

Season 4 Episode 408
Aired on 09/07/2014 | CC tv-14
Comedian Steve Harvey was once a college dropout who drifted from one dead-end job to the next. Today, at age 57, he's an award-winning talk show host with a popular radio show and best-selling books.

In his new book, Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success, Steve shares a lesson he learned from the late Butch Lewis. "When you are a person who is success-minded, you have a wagon that you are pulling uphill," he says. "You are totally responsible for your wagon. You are the only one on rope."

Steve explains what kind of people to keep around to help with your wagon—and whom you should cut loose.
