Lessons from Harvey Specter

Outside of his memorable quotes Harvey does an effortless job of demonstrating masculinity! While the show was created to entertain we would argue that it provides just as much educational value.

Throughout the show Harvey demonstrated many behavioural traits which are required for success such as hard work, measuring risk, being detail oriented, integrity and drive. However one of the most apparent character traits Harvey showed his viewers throughout the show was his response to problems and action taking.

Harvey made sure to always deal with the problem at hand and never run from them. While he technically got paid to deal with problems and solve them he did it with finesse and made sure to make it a point to influence those around him. Harvey believed in leading by example, never blaming anyone else.

This is the number one way to improve your life, whether that be finance, fitness, career or any other area, ensure you assess where you are and where you want to be, reverse engineer your desired destination and work towards it. Don’t announce your plans, just work on them and then you will inspire those around you. That’s the Harvey Specter way and who knows maybe one day we will be writing about the quotes YOU leave the world. Stay focused, be an action taker and the world is yours!
