Speaker 3 (01:25):
Turn to turn the mouth turn you probably got to
turn mouth, turn out the word of the mony up

(01:49):
looking me.

Speaker 1 (01:55):
Come come out?

Speaker 2 (01:59):
You think that, Uh huh, I sure will. Good morning everybody.
You're listening to the voice, Come on dig me now,
one and only Steve Harvey got a radio show. Here
we go today. I think I have something for a
lot of people today, at least I hope I do.

(02:20):
And this is about on your journey, And this is
about something that happens to us all. I mean, what
happens to all of us from time to time when
we get discouraged, What happens to all of us when
we feel like quitting, What happens to all of us

(02:41):
when we have that turnback moment, What happens to all
of us when it don't seem like it's going to
pan out. Because I want you to understand something that everyone,
every single living soul, has those thoughts about something at
some point in their life. I mean you know, Look,

(03:04):
I've oftentimes been discouraged about things not happening as fast
as I like them. All things don't pan out the
way I would like for them to have panned out.
I mean, it's so many ways to get discouraged. But
what my encouragement to you is when discouragement comes is

(03:30):
understand this. It is a part of the growth process.
It is a test. It is a test of your faith.
How bad you want it, do you really believe? That's

(03:50):
all faith is is, simply, and I've said this how
many times. Faith is the belief in things that you
cannot see. So when discouragement comes, set backs comes, it
is a test of your faith. At least it's been
that way for me. Now other people can explain it
another way. I'm not other people. I can only give

(04:10):
it to you the way it has come to me
and throughout my life, and man o man or man
discouragement sometimes it's tough to deal with because it seems
at times when you were discouraged that it is so
absolute that this means the end, and if you allow

(04:32):
it to set in, it can be just that the
end of you, when merely merely it was a test
that's all it is. But the majority of people that
I know who are not successful or who have told
me the story of how they gave up, it was
because at a moment of discouragement that they allowed it

(04:57):
to set in and it became so engulfing that it
became the reason why you shouldn't finish. And then they
started justifying it with hitt one that I hate to hear. Well,
if it's God's will, excuse me. If it's God's will
that you fail. If it's God's will that you're not successful,

(05:22):
If it's God's will that you lay down and give up,
it's God's will that you allow yourself to amount to,
not to not reach your potential. That's God's will. That's
not the God I know. That's not the God I served,
That's not the God I've read about. That's not the

(05:42):
God I believe in. I'm sorry. I just my mother
always taught me something that he didn't bring me this
far to leave me. I just don't believe that, not
for a second.

Speaker 1 (05:55):
Now.

Speaker 2 (05:57):
Have I convinced myself for some things, yep? Have I
allowed the devil to come into the picture and paint
a different one from it? Yep? Yep, I've done all
of that, but you can't blame that on God. Now,
come on, So when discouragement comes, try to look at

(06:18):
it if you can, as a test of your faith,
and you merely have to pass the test. It could
be for a day, a half a day, a few hours,
a week, a few weeks, it don't matter. Don't nobody
know how long the test period is. Your job is
to keep the faith and keep moving. Keep the faith

(06:39):
and keep moving, keep working, keep believing, keep hope alive.
That's your job. If you do that, that's how you
pass the test. It could be over tomorrow, it could
be over in two weeks, it could be over in
a month. You don't know. But all you got to
do is wake up and keep the faith and fight

(06:59):
the discourage flings, And how do you do that? Steve?
Now here we go. This is the part I know
about for show because how many times I've had to
fight off discouragement in order to get to where God
wanted me to be. What do you do when you
become discouraged? Well, I think of the outcome. When I

(07:22):
get discouraged about a task, I think about the outcome. Man,
what would it be like if I were to complete
the task, what would it be like? Man? What would
the outcome be for me if I hung loan in there?
If I didn't give up. If I imagine, I imagine
if I don't quit, I imagine if I don't give up,

(07:45):
what would it be like? Man, Suppose everything I'm hoping
for comes true. But if I don't quit and give up,
that might just be the case. I start talking to
myself like that, I think of what the upside is.
What's the upside to stay in with it? You see,

(08:06):
all this is the same thing. I'm just giving you
different ways to look at it. I'm saying the exact
same thing over and over. But I'm just trying to
find the switch that connects in your mind where you
can say, Okay, man, I'm gonna hang in there. Because
if you think of the outcome and the outcome is
appealing to you, if you imagine what it would be
like if you don't give up or you don't quit,

(08:28):
if you think only of what the upside is to
stay in with it, And then I go, where can
this lead to? If I stay with it, man, and
the outcome comes true? What else could that lead me to?
Because I mean, there's always more to it. So where

(08:49):
else could this lead me to? What are the possibilities?

Speaker 3 (08:53):
Man?

Speaker 2 (08:54):
What are the limitless possibilities? What could God possibly have
in me? If I just hang in there, if I
pass this test of faith, If I just pass this test, now,
it ain't gonna be the only one. But you gotta
get past this one. No, then you gonna hear the
smooth plane. Then it's gonna be another one. It's gonna

(09:15):
be another one. Life ain't nothing but a series of tests.

Speaker 3 (09:18):
Man.

Speaker 2 (09:20):
Man, when you're thinking about giving up, when you're discouraged,
think of the outcome. Imagine what it would be like
if you don't quit, if you don't give up, what's
the upside to staying with it? Where can this all
lead to? What can this get you to? If you
do this and you get to where you think you

(09:41):
want to be? Oh my god, what's after that? What
are the limitless and endless possibilities of holding on to
your faith? What could really be out there for me?

Speaker 1 (09:52):
Man?

Speaker 2 (09:53):
If I just pass this test, you gotta talk yourself
into hanging in there.
