This was a big week for The School of Greatness. This week, I got to sit down with the one and only Kevin Hart and learn about what winning is truly all about. He gave me so many fantastic tips about hard work, attitude, relationships, and so much more that I know I’m going to apply to my life.
It was a long journey to make this interview happen. I had been talking to Kevin’s team for years to find the right time. I looked back at my emails and it’s been five years of going back and forth, and this happened to be the perfect timing.
My first conversation with Kevin actually happened unexpectedly and behind the scenes. I’m friends with his trainer, and I was going through some challenging times in my personal life some years back. His trainer reached out to me one day, put Kevin on the phone, and he gave me some quality life advice.
If you haven’t listened to the full interview yet, make sure you go and do that as soon as you finish here!
For this 5-Minute Friday, I wanted to do a special recap episode of my three biggest takeaways from my interview with Kevin Hart where we talk about what winning in this life truly means.
Before we dive into the recap, let’s review Kevin’s story:
Kevin Hart is a hugely successful comedian, actor, and producer who began his career by sizing men and women for footwear. In his spare time, he would run over to a Philadelphia amateur comedy club to try his hand at stand-up. In his early career, he underwent his fair amount of struggle and criticism, but after dedicated practice and performance, he quit his salesman job to fully pursue comedy. He began performing fulltime, which led to his appearance in several feature films, including Paper Soldiers, Scary Movie 3, and Soul Plane.
In 2009, Kevin released his first stand-up album, titled I’m a Grown Little Man, and has released 4 additional stand-up albums since then. He continues to star in movies, some of his most popular features being Think Like a Man, Get Hard, and Central Intelligence.
Not only is Kevin Hart one of the world’s favorite comedians and actors, but now he’s your life coach. He just released his new audiobook The Decision, Overcoming Today’s BS for Tomorrow’s Success, which is exclusively available on Audible. In his new audiobook, Kevin gets real and raw about the lessons and skills he’s learned and how they can help you create the life you’ve always dreamed of. It’s not only empowering, but also hysterical — Kevin Hart is truly a life coach like no other!
I cannot stress enough how amazing it was to have this interview with Kevin Hart and hear his perspective of what greatness truly is. I hope you enjoy hearing my greatest takeaways from this interview, and as always, I would love to hear your greatest takeaways from the episode as well!
