EXCERPT: Steve Harvey: Why Your Talent Isn't Always Your Gift
OPRAH: I thought it was very interesting because in the book you say there is your talent, but then there's your gift. And until you discover what your gift is, you are really aimlessly going through life. You're not really on purpose.
STEVE: No. See, your talent, you can be a good accountant. You can be a good lawyer. That could be your talent.
STEVE: But your gift, your gift is something. See, your talent will allow you to have a wonderful career. But this is what I've learned. Your career is what you paid for. Your career is what you paid for. Your calling is what you made. Your calling is tied directly to your gift. It's the only way.

OPRAH: Surround yourself with other dreamers. Let's talk about that.
STEVE: You know, if you don't surround yourself with other dreamers, here's what I know. If nine of your friends are broke, you're going to be the tenth one. That's it. If seven of your friends smoke, you're going to be number eight if you stay with that circle of friends. You've got to surround yourself with like-minded people. See, stop telling your big dreams to small-minded people.
