As you know I’m an avid audible listener and love, love, love listening to my books on the go. It’s saves so much time because I can listen to my books anywhere. For instance, traffic jams are one of my favorite times to listen to an audible book.
Currently, I’m listening to Kevin Hart’s new book on audible. When I found out he was reading his own book, I almost lost my mind. Everything in me knew the book would be funnier because he’s reading it. As you know I love it when the author reads their own book. In most cases, the author will add things they didn’t include in their book along with other surprises.
Let me tell you that June 6, 2017 could NOT get here fast ENOUGH. My husband and I are die-hard Kevin Hart fans. We even flew all the way to Vegas just to see his show then double back and went to see it in the movie theaters. This people makes us die-hard Kevin Hart fans!!
So far I’m in love with the book and constantly busting a gut listening to it. But through all the shits and giggles Kevin is laying down some really hard life lessons. So hard that I’m writing this blog post before finishing the audible book. Right now I’m on chapter 54 of 100. Yes people the book has 100 chapters.
Honestly, I couldn’t imagine listening to someone else’s dry voice for 10 hours telling the stories that he shares in his book. No offense to the top voice over guys but you would have done NO justice reading his book. Yes, I meant to structure the sentence in that way.
Now let’s get to the life lessons Kevin taught me in his book. Quick and dirty teasers only because you must read or listen to the book yourself for a personalize interpretation. Afterwards, come back here leave a comment so we can start a conversation about what we’ve learned.
Life Lesson #1 – 1 Chance Only
You only get 1 chance to make a first impression.
Ok, we’ve all heard this before. But hearing it again followed by his personal experience to back up this claim made it seem like hearing it for the first time. Stop rushing and take the time to prepare and/or learn your craft.
Life Lesson #2 – Key to Success
Hard work is not enough for success. The key to success is commitment.
Stay committed to YOU and everything else will fall into place. Have patience but nothing happens overnight.
Life Lesson #3 – The High Priority
Treat everything like it’s a high priority no matter how small the opportunity.
No time is wasted as long as you’re taking time working towards your goal. This is definitely a reminder I needed to hear right now. Recently, I was invited to an Empowerment Luncheon on July 8th to speak about AST. Of course I said yes! Will my target audience be there? Probably not, but you never know who someone else knows or the doors that can open up. No time is wasted people, remember that!
Lesson #4 – Toughest Transition EVER!
The toughest transition is the transitioning to understanding that being you is all you need to be.
Actually, I already knew this from my personal experience and journey. Maybe you’re listen harder to me since Kevin feels the same way.
This book is amazing to me even though I’m only 54 chapters into it. It amazes me because I love a great come up story of someone who beat the odds and went against the grain. This is what I had to do in my life, go against the grain. This is what I teach my clients, go against the grain.
We all must stop being afraid of stepping out on faith, erasing the line around our comfort zone, and embrace our uniqueness. This is how Kevin got the success he has today. His funny yet positive personality is what drew me to him. He’s relatable on so many levels because he’s just being himself.
Just in case you missed it, he’s successful for simply being who God made him to be. Simple!
