Abu Dhabi, UAE: Well-known and famous American TV host and comedian Steve Harvey said that the United Arab Emirates is the “safest place” for an individual to accomplish their dreams. Harvey was speaking as he addressed the crowd at the Al Wasl Dome at the Expo 2020 Dubai on Sunday.
Harvey asserted, “You all are taking for granted what you have (been offered) here. Nobody is picking up your pocket or stealing your car. That is not how the rest of the world is. I come four times a year to experience peace because nobody is shooting at me and nobody has robbed me. I have been robbed at gunpoint four times, and they broke into my home”.
He then added, “Imagination is everything. What you have to understand is that whatever you see at Expo today, somebody had imagined this. This city of Dubai, Abu Dhabi or UAE – all this was imagined by the UAE’s great leadership. That is why it is as it is. They imagined it and believed in it. Everything you see comes from somebody’s Imagination.”
Sharing his inspiring life story, Harvey stated, “When I was poor, I dreamt of being a rich man. Everything you imagine means that God is showing you a preview of coming traction for you. Everything you imagine is God’s way of showing what he has in store for you. That is what Imagination is,” he said, adding that many times people have a wonderful imagination but are rejected when they share it with friends or family. There is no way you’re going to be rich. There is no way you can be a government official. We are ordinary people. How many times you have been told there is no way. Because God didn’t put this in their Imagination but your Imagination. He showed it to you, not to them.”
Meanwhile, the official page of Dubai EXPO 2020 praised Harvey and tweeted, “He never fails to make us smile and feel inspired! From the heart of Expo 2020 Dubai, the American TV legend and happiness-maker Steve Harvey delivered a motivational speech and brought us a whole lot of happiness — in celebration of #InternationalDayOfHappiness!
