Joe Rogan Experience #1278 - Kevin HartFeb 27, 2020
here we go in five four three two one yeah and all the people that make me feel lazy in this world are - ok make me feel you on the rock it doesn't look like you ever slept and i don't know no days off that's why I love it it's an unattractive butt he's a person that motivates me inspires me indeed that we are we are coworkers we were friends I think it's I think it's like a blessing it's a blessing to be around that's right because it's really uplifting you know what it does to you it just makes you cut the loop when you're around people who really give you like they give you a good service a good value to you and your life then you look at those who don't and you can, you can walk away so I'm big on personality I'm big in energy i am big in will and once i think it is contagious so if you have a lot of laziness and a lot of what is around you will naturally feed on you you will become what is in your environment so how do i feel I nto exactly the same way and when I see I see that in you I see that in you I have seen avatar I see you I see you yes but a guy like that I always wonder how much of that is gaze I have had sleep experts on the podcast. to tell you there are real problems if you don't get enough sleep that you could be at a much higher risk of alzheimer's well there are other serious problems but i see a guy like rock i'm like how do you sleep what?
Where is the room to sleep? You know that's true. I can't say it's that I've witnessed the sleep patterns, but he's a latecomer asshole, so he knows. I know he is sleeping to rest, which is well deserved. but you know when you say you have these sleep experts and stuff, it's always something I go back and forth about because what is getting enough sleep like I'm a person where I run six to seven hours yes six seven hours I'm running yes five hours I'm great do I do the five hour thing all the time no but if I have to I'm fine no I don't need the eight and nine like that's too much for me the way I am I'm an early riser and now I'm getting older you know yeah I can lie on that bed at 9:30 or 10:00 on a day off from work I'm very happy with it, but then I get up at 5:30 I get up at 5:00 so what's enough to sleep ?
What do they tell you? This really depends on the person. There are people who have a gene where they can sleep hours at night I left oh my god I have that what is that gold what does that mean you have a special gene damn amalia yes that is um there are people who just don't need everything they can they can go a long time without sleep i was diagnosed i'm one of those people you thought you could be you're always burning up so your body is like when it's time to shut down it's like shutting down get that five six hours well you do well i'll confess this to you myself I'm an awesome cat Napper yeah I'm one of those guys if you stop talking to me long enough I'll fall asleep right here it's something about real silence and just doing nothing and I, well I'm probably picking up momentum all the time .
You are probably going for motivation and drive, okay, so when your body has this rest, you already have a little sleep here, that's right. I'm serious. heartbeat, do you feel that you have reached a good balance? So this is what I was wondering about guys like you or guys like The Rock when I look at your Instagram, your social media and you're constantly saying, damn, ever? i feel like you do too much maybe i just need to take a little break here do you ever feel that way i think perception definitely picks up on reality you know what it looks like so much isn't always so much because you have a schedule and you know within that schedule there are the things that most mean they kick in it's downtime you know me in my house it's downtime even though it's still active and i have to be dead and i'm with the kids and a wife in this conversation and i'm running and i came back for that ex's downtime for me like I'm closing a job so phone is any office I ain't coming back to get it till the morning and it's all talk it's all tv it's all taco tuesday it's couch . and snuggle you know baby time whatever that's my downtime cause i'm stepping out of each other that's wise that's what i think i do great i can get out of the other i can separate it so i think when you're able to do that then you're managing your mental you don't want to say if it is if it's always one thing all the time that's how you get crazy cause you never never turn it off yeah and i think i do a good job turning this off and focusing on this like when i love my family i'm with me and family nothing is nothing gets in the way or in the way that's fantastic that's so important is to understand that's beautiful I doubt it's gigantic I think I figured it out that's it you mean you're so successful that's all you have to be with that phone all the time that's the phone is the big one well the phone is the gift and the curse mm-hmm you know i think we yelled out the door and saw the gift oh my gosh it's their community is connecting when we can share we can meet new people we can keep in touch with everyone find new people as an entertainer i can interact with my fans and this is great and then you get hit with the curse and curses there is a high level of negativity that is out there that you know there are a lot of people who are not happy or going through things and they put a certain amount of negativity and hate through these devices These devices are the easiest way to touch everyone so when you burn out all day , you start to see yourself as part of the negative. i don't need to see i don't need to see i don't give it no mind i don't read that for what it isn't it doesn't help me it doesn't make me better it isn't it doesn't push me to new limits if something takes up just creative space i literally spend time going and navigating through what i think is a lot of you so i dont let the device beat me and at one point i definitely did at one point it was all there was all you know now i separate it i dont embrace it clear what when you realize what it is when you see when you see the bad you know when you see the bad side i thought the other day this is a real thing and it really made me think my phone died my phone died and i'm driving and i was using the maps and i said what the hell am I getting to I don't know where I'm going.
I said it was like you know how we got from point A to point B before the map. What we were doing? I used to print directions from Google Maps. I remember, but then, before that, how did you get to the places you were going that you didn't know how to get to? I don't even remember Thomas, guys, do you remember Thomas Scott? I had a boy Thomas when I first moved to Los Angeles. I had a Thomas guy and I know Bill Burr had a one hundred percent two or three years ago, but he really encouraged me because he was like how come we don't even know how to do the common, yeah? the norm is no longer normal because the device has made everything available and i literally had to drive to the rocket store buy a charger charge my phone to get back and use the map to get where i was going i had no idea how to get there no i had i didn't know any number by heart i didn't know who i was going to call oh my god this is the moment i thought what level of success i have reached.
I stopped and said here and said how am I going to get the widow bear's phone, man, I don't know what it was, a backup phone. the world if it felt like it was running out of house and how crazy i'm depending on you but that's when the lightbulb started to click yeah it started to click how how do we function without i want to back off a bit yeah still it's there I still need it I still think it's great with all the things we can do I want it but I still want to be able to put it down and get away from it my kids so I can get away from it that's why when I walk into the house , my phone is on because I can't, I can't and I start to play, it's about being on your phone if you see me doing the same, good, so at that time those conversations want me to know about your day. you tell me about your day your friends who you like who you don't like my daughter you what boy who what is not right my son yeah I like someone who oh jesus here he comes it's something great and I want to be able to have those moments and you know, I think it's, it's important to make sure that you prioritize, are you worried about what? comes the next hundred percent.
I worry that something is much more intrusive than that. What do you mean it's already happening? people could hear your oh yeah if you didn't need to FaceTime you could just do and you know that was the scariest thing because it's so easy to have a bug like that what's not a bug? that's what you just don't know oh there's definitely a government listen to us good hunter is that right yeah? Hart, we'd like you to feel like you're from NYU something a hundred percent yeah so the fear is the next level is intrusive you know I think it's all become intrusive now the hardest thing for me there is no privacy. outside my house, you know, the amount of money you have to spend right now just for security in.
You know the people who should be with me safely in my house. You complain a bit because without the fans, without the people who support me, I wouldn't be where I am, but there's no middle ground, you know? There are no more handshakes. much better right I have a moment like me we can talk if that's what you don't don't say it now weird why you're doing this to me it's kind of weird having a conversation so you're starting to see yourself get a little older and wiser and uh , you really see the times for what they are and see the direction that we're going in these people and I just hope and pray that we find a middle ground because I think right now that's one, yeah that's how I feel now, no, I'm sorry. also and especially i want to say that what you are talking about is that you are super famous and you lose all your privacy but everyone is losing their privacy yes slowly but surely it is happening to you because you are so famous and because you do something that it's in the public eye and people want to see you and they want to put that camera in front of you but there will come a time where we're dealing now which is like you have to turn on your phone you have to know you have to contact someone you have to put something that is that the steps will be out of the way who will be the people who will be able to act that is your life, yes, beautiful, you know, you know the bad, this is what I said, it is bad that really with me not i like that negativity it's the w and you know what's popular is failure the up you know the fight i can catch you know the hateful moment i can catch and post like the bad stand out and celebrate that's what with me what the the networks social now what really bothers me is you know when you see this stuff online like you know a fight and there is a man beating up a woman and he gets caught right that's bad the bad thing is you saw the video was more important than the actual help or the moment to step in and you know when you see these things where you're catching people doing these things to kids and the moment of what you have and what you want to post and get likes or whatever the focus is captured instead about the help, yeah, and that's the part that I just have a hard time processing I have a hard time processing what the likes mean to certain people well you get an extraordinary amount of attention so it doesn't mean anything t It means anything anyway something for a normal person but you are a normal person if they can see a world star video and upload it they are like man that's my video that's my video look my video has 5 million views yeah , my video has gone viral. my videos everywhere to them it's like it's a point of excitement that's why when they see you look oh how often they'll run into Kevin Hart at Costco or wherever you definitely told me. i'm in a restaurant and i'm in a bathroom and i go to the bathroom you know by the way i went to the bathroom you could definitely tell i had i was moving fast i was he knows one of those abrupt you know why you eat yes i'm eating bad so that I didn't eat bad in a while, my stomach immediately said that won't happen today.
I'm walking or they get really hard and while I'm walking a guy gets up and follows me in the bathroom, says, "I gotta take a picture man" and I said let me let me go to the bathroom when I'm done. i'll take a picture with you i go to the bathroom this is a true story hannah bible hand in the bible i assume the boys outside the bathroom because while i go i see it and i say what i say i finish i see the snake wash my hand i was sitting behind a wall and pulled out his phone im like he probably did it took me while i was dude put the phone on the thing like its about to be oh my gosh its over this is it this is my nightmare here we go they are about to put something on me, shit, it's the bottom of my feet, it's whatever, yeah, but he just waited and walked in. that moment was so important he was in the bathroom and as soon as i got a call in the second i said let's go out of the bathroom yeah let's take a picture it's a bathroom i said could i go to?
I'm a good boy, I'm gonna take the picture because I just don't want to lose you and I'm likethere wouldn't even be a thought, not even a thought, that's a bad price, how weird is it that sebastin minutes this is a this is a pretty weird time man this is weird halloween you'll be the end no no what you got on your phone right you're too big for me to ask you to check your phone or whatever you have but i had to go out and take the picture and i remember coming back to the table like what's happening that's not weird at this point what's happening yeah that didn't exist before i think that if you were famous before people just wanted to get an autograph or shake your hand what Pat what happened an autograph stage was the last time you got an autograph it's been a while I didn't write it I was I think I would know what to put that It's been a minute man yeah and I don't want to make this very clear you know it's not me no I don't know you know I understand Once again I want people to understand more importantly the fact that I welcome them yeah , I give him the b Welcome to the time when I can talk and chat with fame, but it should be like normal people, times are better when it's the real you. you know and after a real moment you get a picture because you're like me i was actually a nice guy or i know i did that you'd be so chill and cool you can't even see how genuine a person is i am because the first thing you do it's that you put the camera on your face and that's when people think you're a because they have the intrusive moment that later he meets him can you please stay?
I'm sorry you're not the one you look me in the face you're going to be like that they look for that now you have your moment yes you me look for the negative moment when does it start to get weird for you but how many years in um i know it's been it's been pretty crazy i've been pretty crazy for the last four or five the last four or five years and the last three, you know if he's gone crazy because now you know you're international, it's global and the next thing is bigger and for all ages, which is actually very cool, but I think you know that for comedians it's different because you feel like you know comedians, you know you're laughing, we're in your homes, everything is warmly received, so when you see a comedian, especially if you're a fan of a comedian, you're associating everything with funny and you.
You're just looking for the fun time, right? You are looking beyond a normal moment. You know it's like you're almost frowned upon if you're normal. I thought you were going to be funny like me I'm supposed to guess a pop block right on the site, you know, yeah, if it's 2:00 in the morning and you bump into me and I'm like, hey, how you doing man? That's not enough when you solve your now mm-hmm. You at the Comedy Store, but only once, where do you work out? I like to go to random comedy clubs, you know, I think I'll go to New York first. a scenario you try to figure out once i have a skeleton of what i want to do i'll go to west palm i love that comedy club The Improv down there and the whole place is great i'll stay for two weeks oh real and go and tell some jokes i'll go to Utah I'll go to Denver which two wise guys do yeah yeah yeah I'll go to comedy clubs just random comedy clubs you wouldn't expect to see me at but I'll have a great run and the goal is to get out of there with just a base not having a game complete, i just want to get a foundation, so when i'm done laying the foundation, then i'll make a little run at the comedy club.
I'm going to do a whole career in the comedy club where I'm only going to be two or three months and it's the comedy club. weekend and people are surprised that I'm there and then I'm doing it but you know that's my gym that's how I work and I end up leaving that period of time with a full set after the first three or four months that I spend now, after that comedy club, three or four months in that career, then I take it to a small theater. I see what my laugh feels like in a small theater and do a little run in small theaters and then when I finally feel like it. it's at a point where i'm constantly laughing and the jokes are working and i flipped it forward in all directions and my story is a real roller coaster and it has an ending where i feel like we got off the roller coaster and we're happy and you don't feel like you were there for an hour mmm that's when i'm going to try it every now and then and if the arena, if the last er sounds like it's supposed to then i say ok i'm done, if it doesn't, I'll go back to small theaters and then I'll go to an arena again, so not that arena sounds like it's supposed to.
I say I go on tour, so sometimes it takes me about a year a year and three months here in four months. say how hard it is to develop our stand-up stuff people act like you just turn on a new hour it's an hour to get to an hour you're going four to five hours of that you thought that was fun yeah for coming up to that hour on that you finally say that this is going to be my performance this year, yeah, it's a lot for me to do that, especially at this level, you know that, especially when you're always making movies and you're always busy with a bunch of other stuff to gorge yourself on, yeah , you don't take white breaks or in fact you know when i'm on tour if there's a movie i do the movie schedule around the torso my shoot days will be mon tuesday wed thursday rap thursday maybe sometime show thursday night and then i'll go thursday friday saturday sometimes no show sunday sometimes show sunday depending on what the work schedule is and the workload for the following week would look like so im im complementing that so when I say I'm out I'm out I'm gone yeah so I cut that movie in two months and then when I'm not the tour schedule changes. so monday tuesday wednesday thursday dedicated family dedicated to an office everything then those weekends break but that's all it lasts a year and a half i mean this year we did 157 shows on my irresponsible tour wow 157 show before we you decided to put it on the netflix special yeah we did the netflix taping i think i did it three weeks before we finished so we probably had 143 shows oh wow then i taped it and finished the tour you always had this guy of structure like when did you do it? how did you design this person well thought out?
Yes, I mean a well thought out person. It's not random, no, everything is planned. at the end of that second year, my new special should come out when a new special should come out. Now I'm focusing on what the next special will be, so the first year is all development like now. Leave. I'm not on tour but now I'm mentally in the gym and throwing away all the old stuff I talked about in a way that's now thrown away I can't repeat it I can't tell now he's talking about what's the new version of myself . it's going to be what i want the conversation to be and what my thinking is and just taking notes so eventually now i'm going to start showing up at random comedy clubs and try to figure out what's next so mid 20 I'm probably doing comedy clubs by the end of 20.
I have a complete concept of that new hour and by the beginning of 21 I should be ready to go out with my new hour hmm end of 21 movie my new our mid 22 will be out that hour it seems a schedule alot of people are doing now the 2 year old schedule is perfect i understand yeah thats hard mate i know louis c.k did a year every year and george carlin did every year but i think even he said that it really wasn't the right way that's a tough year yeah i mean that's a thank you to those that can't do it i think that's amazing i think just because of everything i'm going through and all the different things i have in my mom us within the brand the business i need to make sure i'm giving a hundred percent change those things so they have the best chance of success if i'm trying to cheat then i'll show you you know it's not going to turn out for the best that i can and with that standing you got a magnifying glass on you you know you always get judged by what you did at one point just me As a musician you always get judged by the album everybody thought it was whatever so that the most important thing for an artist, whatever your trade, is creation. to do that is to talk about my life and the things that grow with me the only thing that grows with me my
experiences my family my marriage my mistakes my ups and downs those are the things i can talk about the most because as you get older things change everything becomes different it comes from my personal opinion about me my point of view about me and how i see life you can't lose material in that state mmm that's why i stay away from certain things because those things can get boring after a while for me because i don't have the knowledge of everything that I should like that good politics I don't know how to joke in politics I don't joke and everything that has to do with the slander of others or another community I do not do anything divisive good for you that is what matters most to me and You know last year was one that got a little weird because I was like you know I really dedicated myself to bringing people together like I'm I know that was my goal that's my priority I'm sure I thought that was to what he was doing on a world scale everyone all races shapes sizes whoever you are whatever you are you can come to a Kevin Hart show I have fun so when it came out like I was a person that was divisive it was hard for you to talk about it Oscar Oscar yeah this is a time where people are just looking to be upset about a hundred things they're not looking to look at you Kevin Hart as a human being like who is he that overall super positive?
They're not even concentrating on that, I mean, think about how positive you are, and yet they tried to focus on some pranks you pulled nine years ago. a is a is a wake-up call to understand the t but the most important thing is that it was good for me. I passed. I made sure that people in the LGBTQ community really got it. Hi guys. I apologized earlier, but I apologize again. Sorry, I'm not that guy. I don't want you to think I'm that guy, so it became the constant conversation, it never happened, it became the constant conversation and now they're guys, I'm not just sorry, I don't condone anything that's happened. to do with hating someone this is not a conversation anymore so i'm going to stop talking about it because now i feel like i'm feeding off yes what not i know i'm not the world and the public needs to understand and know that no because over this period of time i've shown i'm not so sorry once again i'm really sorry i'm sorry but then it stuck it just never stopped and at that point i made a decision and i'm like guys right now , I'm just making the decision not to talk about it anymore, that doesn't mean that I'm going to be disrespectful to anyone, that doesn't mean that I'm closing anything, it means that for me I'm going to stop talking about it because right now I don't know what to do right now i thought i thought the apology is what you wanted me to do i did i made sure you understood i'm not a hateful person in noga don't hate i did i quit so as not to take the spotlight off that night they're there to be celebrated i don't want to call attention on me and everything around me I quit everything I did was for the best I'm leaving guys because I don't want this to be a negative night or something negative and then it turned into a conversation so I waited for him to calm down.
I went to my talk show radio I gave another public apology make sure you don't understand I'm sorry I hope these words didn't hurt anyone once again I apologized I don't condone hate on anyone I hope you can forgive me for those jokes oh well now I say if you don't understand You don't think so I don't know what else to give I don't know what else to do there's nothing else you can do that's very wise of you nothing, you're very smart and easy to walk away like that because if you didn't they would probably haunt you forever but I mean , it becomes a point of attention, that's all, it was decided that this is something they will focus on.
I had a good talk and I'm going to talk about this for a minute, my friend, Lee Daniels, you know, Lee Daniels, Lee called me, he told me where to talk, you know, Lee Daniels is a director, producer, show business is the most big. it shows you know so he calls me it's like everyone talking to you and i was talking he's like he looks at this. It's a time where you could talk and talk about you know the community that's been affected by hate and you know hate crime. You can come forward and be a voice and say that you don't condone or support hate of any kind. or whatever you can take that scenario and do that and I said Lee I said I understand what you're saying I said ok why did you expect me to know what has been going on in this community regarding hate and crime I said I am not aware I said some people may just be unaware I'm not even no I have no idea what's going on I have no idea yes within that community I have no idea right when you tell me this I am now educated and understand that it is easy to just report the correct information it's key when people get information process information when you can process information you go oh wait a minute that makes sense hey if y'all think i can't hate waiting aminute I don't and anyone who does man that's bad you shouldn't I can't say that but instead when this happened it became an ally mmm it became a voice you know , and that's where there was just a miscommunication, that's where it kind of set up a back and forth that I think people just started to take things and run with it. and i'm just not i'm just not one to feed into what i feel won't eventually turn into a positive in a real conversation yeah yeah when i'm doing my best it was becoming tabloid rather than likeable to a real discussion click me yeah click me that's the problem there's so much hook out there because it's a very effective way to get people to pay attention to things because like you said people they focus on failure, anger and rage, that's what we want. see controversy that's what we want to see people don't want to see anger yeah and you know we think it's because it's just the times that is that's what's cool now always being negative you know how you always have some people it's a great example how you have people means you can talk about a movie ok we can talk about Titanic wow it's authentic one of the greatest movies of all time great movie yeah it was a great movie and why boy no reason i hated it yeah why yeah. like Titanic, why manga, yeah I know what, tell me why you hated it, I have time to talk about how good it is to be different, I want, I want to be the complete opposite of Denali Contreras, like people, you know what, no, that he was an idiot.
Wow Wow, why was he so dumb? We have people who like to do this, oh yeah sure, and what happens when one person does it, another person for no reason, they all go, yeah, me too, yeah, she asked, man, I didn't like it. or you saw what they're talking about you don't even know what they're talking about but you just want to jump on the negative bandwagon because that's the good thing it's not good to be positive it's not good to be happy I don't know if it's a cool thing I think usually they are people who are really frustrated with their lives 100% What is the factual side?
I made a joke earlier: Do you think Michael Jordan leaves comments on YouTube like people want to constantly get mad and complain about it? Do you know what needs to be done? this right here you know right here i'm not telling you how i feel write in your comment section joe
roganyou can kiss me you know what it takes what you have that you have the time to just be this negative and do it in this world you know someone is just poor management of your time yeah it's so valuable and i don't think people understand how valuable it can be if you use your time right yeah you've always been like this you've always been a sausage oh my god man but I always always really find a light in every dark tunnel I'll find a fucking man of light I hear everything you hear when I tell you to wait on my back it's so heavy from all the things I deal with and I'm fine the reason I'm well it's because I'm completely happy I'm happy and I'm not happy just because of success Success X is a bonus I'm happy because I really know the definition and feeling that comes with happiness I really know I felt it I felt it when I said what I said It really makes me happy and I look at the sky and Hendrix and I look at his oh I look at my wife I go I didn't have family when I was going up yes I have one I have a look what look what I built these people depend on me I provide these people that It makes me happy that makes me happy when my daughter shows up dad you're not just my dad you're my best friend I'm not happy that's my world so everything else from the outside that comes in you you're pulling a bubble that can't be burst mmm it's a force field around me yes there's a force field around me because what matters what really matters loves me whole heartedly and when you had that and you understand that you're unbreakable so if you don't add to that force field force yes no Don't make my force field stronger you don't have time for me my team beat productions the people under my umbrella you are part of my force field you what i think we all see the same things we want the same things , so what We march to the same beat, you can't, you can't get rid of it when you're an individual who's seen it and understands that if you've never felt it if you have no idea what it feels like then it's easy to shake off that's why some people they break easily that they break it's not something difficult it's not something difficult then those who break those who get depressed those who get depressed I understand I understand I don't I don't criticize people for that mmm I don't criticize anyone for that I also understand it's that the encouragement that can come from so many can add value for those who may need a little push hmm who may need a little Amen choose your cheer up it's so easy to be that positive reinforcement for someone and adding value is so easy but so me the people choose to throw that aside and kick while you're down hmm i try to put out the light of positivity because whoever is out there i don't know what i could do for someone else but someone else can just look at you I say you know the way he hugs his children.
He makes me want to be a better father. Your way to this man does not stop and waits for him every day. He wakes up and is positive regardless of what is going on. It makes me realize that. this isn't so bad the way he gets up and says hello today is another day is morning let's all be better than we were yesterday someone probably needed to hear that the more i can give that and i can take my platform to shed good energy i'm doing my part because there are many who thought the opposite, yes, I do not want to be a part of it, that's beautiful, man, that's it and that's true, I believe you, it's not, it's not forced. false yes it is not false this every day i hear every day it is seeing and contagious i also had a lady i heard a lady a certain lady rolled out the window when you are going to make a good movie again you saw that the silver lining was good what is it that oh it's a movie it's one of my movies that's how we think i think it's a good movie i see it's ok ma'am have a lovely day that's with such conviction as literally yes i could have said many things , like she rolled down a window, you could tell she still had the weird things I could say to her.
Ma'am, when she's going to make a good movie, it's a nap. I pulled one upside down, see the outside, what is that, oh, it's a movie, so now it's available. to come to you with a negative i get it every day when you'll be fun again doing my best but trying my best if it doesn't work out for you i hope to do better soon what do you do what am i going to feed that and add? water well why why yes from what seems to have been working so far you are getting this positive attitude towards life from life
experienceyou get it from books someone taught you how to find this I get it from experiences and from real understanding of perfection does not exist does not exist oh mmm we are in a time when people expect perfection you expect perfection i don't know where the dust came from i don't know what happened that's the criteria for living my true understanding is ok you have a life and then a life the goal for us is to live it to the best of our ability from the beginning so what did the end say in the middle in the beginning in the middle you're going to do things you're going to make mistakes you're going to go up you're supposed to you have to learn and then move on with understanding what not to do and as you move forward life may get better it may not but at some point it's going to click and everything i went through back here was supposed to to what would happen, so now that I am here.
I can go on. With such a high level of knowledge and I can make other people better I can improve myself I could do more for my family Something happens My dad is the best example Crazy drug addict in and out of jail Life was very bad very bad my dad son succeeded son then took money gave it to his father here is your house here is your truck here is your monthly at this age i want you to live your life you know you made mistakes you cant rebuild and correct the things you have done i am you son I love you you can't go back and redo you can't try to keep going backwards it's not about me you have grandkids mmm you're going to be the best grand pop you could be to these grandkids that's your focus now where is this energy dedicated to being a great pop for the grandchildren don't worry about me but something happened in your life something happened that moved you in the direction of reaping the benefits of happiness and success for your child my energy is now contagious nothing i give it to you, so now you can give that to all these other people who are around something happens and that's in every life in every life i understand there's a payoff for bad eventually there's a payoff it can't be bad but for so long if you have the strength and the understanding to realize that it will change will change is impossible just like poker i don't know if you play poker or not i don't play poker you can go wrong forever but it will eventually change once you understand the understanding of the game will eventually change blackjack you'll never be the casino but eventually you'll have a good run if you catch run you'll do well get out you waited long enough for it to happen here come catch it leave anything in life will eventually turn good no but this comes only from your own personal experience you have some role model that I am at your disposal in this way Nancy art spoke to you like this about positivity and about my mother knowledge reinforced my mom reinforced you don't start things and you don't finish them you don't give up there's nothing that comes out of quitting besides knowing that you didn't finish we finished everything you started finish it if you're going to do it do it to try and be the best not be better than other people be the best for you if you're in school and going to class you might get to give me 100 percent all the time and i'm a happy mom when you half fool me i'm on yeah mom i wanna do this i wanna wanna play baseball ok then you go to play with my mom just like that then why did you start the season because I thought I wanted to do it so you're going to end the season you don't give up there are other people who invested time and energy in you you don't just give up on people but I don't don't want to do it end the season mom i want to swim so you're going to finish swimming no matter what i did i was never allowed to quit so n Oh in everything i do when i pick it up i say im going to start it , I have to finish it, everything doesn't work, everything ate the best, hmm, not everything is out of the park, but I walk away saying I'm done.
I did it I did it right now I've been boxing I saw I saw you train with Rico Verhoeven first of all I'm a very strong kicker huge man okay he's a big guy too man nice guy but I started in jeans I started and said why am I doing this. I'm not going to be a professional wrestler. I'm not trying to be an amateur fighter. I'm doing the guinness way. I don't know about the sport, I at least want to make sure that I'm paying tribute to the people who do this for a living by really understanding it and learning.
You know what I'm going to get a real trainer. I'm going to get some real people to show me around so when it's all said and done and I look back after my workout. I can go. I gave it 100% and look how good I became. Look what I am. I am a product of a combat. I'm getting really yeah, yeah, just to feel it and be able to say it, you know right. scanty Bryan Callen is that serious no that's me yeah that's me come on that's me dude that's me he's getting it to look at this who's teaching him huh his name is Biggs he's in Atlanta, that's me.
I know he's a very good ex Gold Glove guy with you I was in a drink and everything when I was in training session when I got tired damn yeah I got groped I got my ass spanked and every other time I go the Guys worry all good I don't go crazy we had equipment and but I'm not there with guys who are trying to hurt yeah I'm not there I was playing guys who have no concept of reality yeah or control as if they were they're just helping me understand here's why you gotta keep going yeah that's a problem with celebrities trying to train like you're trying to like you you know that's why mickey rourke started submitting To all that facial surgery, I'm serious, he's part James Toney, Jesus, the eyelashes, she's not smart here, that's James Tony, he's a bad man and it's not that you don't like him.
I do not enter that space. Have you ever seen James Tony talk about boy bars and there's some of the most entertaining stuff you'll ever find on YouTube? that's her and he's one of the best defensive fighters ever so he's really hard to hit he has a fresh smell and a in the world yeah he had a guy that has a Mikey thing to him. I'm training with Mikey. I thought Mikey literally had like six arms this is the true story this I said I don't know what just happened but I thought he had his hands up no matter where I put him he just touched me he let me feel it but not to where I could get knocked out, but now I understand the move.
I understand the pivots. I understandshoulder protection and that's my goal. My goal is to understand why I can't do anything by halves. It's okay if you try to fight someone. No, of course, no. I just want to say that I did it and I learn and I can move. and I look at the paper because I put time into it while you learn it also while you watch and you start training then you start looking at a guy like Terence Crawford or lumen Co and you're like oh now I appreciate what you're doing because before you'd see like, oh yeah I hit that guy oh yeah he knocked out that guy but then you see him duck under the left and shoot with the right you know jesus this is precision this is crazy yeah the respect I have for people who they do that on a day to day it's through the roof yeah a and the people fighting are in the most amazing shape in the universe yeah you're in the most amazing shape you've ever moved you get hit for three to five minutes come back, do it, come back, do it and these fights go on and on and on.
Hats off to you, yes you get me three rounds. I'm exhaling my ass. I don't know where the air comes from. I'm looking for it. It's a crazy way to make a living with money. your brain thank god i didn't have to go down that path and you know those that do just make sure you put your body first like you said it's painful when you see the damage it can cause us yeah we were talking about that before like watching guys when they start to deteriorate and it's hard because no one wants to tell them that every time I want to tell them they got a better fight against them and maybe at the end of the year. then we will decide but right now we are going to train hard and my stuff is difficult because there is no choice so he and not once you have established yourself as a professional fighter and you don't have an exit strategy you don't know what to do you know now at less fortunately because the internet guys are getting podcasts and starting to make comments shows they're talking about fights and it's the positive you just found the positive that's the positive within the internet that's a positive you just don't hear it celebrate it too the internet is very positive for me I mean, this is the show that we do on the Internet.
I mean all of them, not just podcasts but also YouTube videos and information as well. I know more thanks to the Internet than I ever would have without it. I have no doubt in my mind. person i just want the internet yeah you get the things you can find and search and i mean like you said you are able to educate yourself yeah at a very high level these are the goods yeah we are talking about the goods , so when you talk about positive Kevin, how have you been, yes you are always like this? It is this.
It's the things I look at that are so easy. You are not only positive, although you seem crazy and ambitious. It sure is like ambitions off the c
harts like I know your riches like when when you think you have enough you don't have enough there isn't don't know enough I don't have enough because it's not over it's all over it's not over it's not over so you know when, when you put it a cap you're putting a score on it mm-hmm and the ambition comes from seeing what's out there that's obtainable you know when you see what's out there like what you can mean physical things like well you see what's out there when you see where people actually get wealth and insight from business relationships where you can acquire the people you can partner with and create certain things different streams of income what i found is like a young b missing a north philadelphia guy the older problem with the biggest problem within our community is the knowledge that we don't know debt debt is welcome because it's celebrated that's all we know and got e that credit card oh my that credit card and it's what it is they have to realize I don't have it after that yeah well you know what I'm getting student loans they gave it to me and then after that , I realized, I put a cable bill in your name. put it in my name we can change it whatever they do there let's put it in someone else's name it's welcome the hustle is welcome knowledge of banks and what you can do can't do is you don't even get it because you're going to check cashing places for example go to a check cashing place because i don't want to go through that ship banks i trust you go there to check the heads please let me take mine let me take the mine now take $30 whatever let me get it knowledge is given so its not for you to get that knowledge and understand it. oh oh this is why you put money oh this is how you increase vs decrease oh this is how you earn with your money oh wow i can gain wealth by investing in what is the world of stocks how many people ? participate in a stock market and there is a part that is not necessarily gambling there is a part of low risk that is not the information is not there so it is not so I reached a certain level and a certain group of people where I have it and now that I have it I want to give it to them so now I'm going to give it to them I'm going to give it to the people I know that need it the most and to me that younger generation of black people who don't understand that the good stuff is in financial longevity not in a now it's not at the time for jewelry not at the time for the car it's in longevity it's in construction so at the end of the day you can say look what i looked at what i worked for look what i have that's my monopoly it's real but you have to have financial understanding and I made team.
They chased me. I never did something called financial fitness. It's just about educating people about money. How to manage money. How to be smart with your money. I withhold taxes before because I didn't understand it at first I've had bad credit Credit cards didn't take me because I maxed out what I've been there I did thank God I was able to fix and I'm on the right track and now that I have the knowledge that I want to give, I may just not know it, so when you say endgame, endgame is coming to a point where I've taken all the knowledge I have.
I have been able to get through these years and really apply it and provide family wealth when all is said and done. heartbeat adventures your heartbeat real estate there are so many things the last heart will be attached to you real estate
kevinhardin sell real estate a bible back it up but the reason why is because investment is investment but as you you get older you learn this you learn it and you know it's a big thing where you talk about black versus white you know a lot of people do that and I run away so like there's racism racism exists I'm not unaware of it but there's a big volume, that's nonexistent, people had a good people and when you can merge with good people and follow the paths that you see these successful good people have led you then become part of a world and a group that no one expected you to be so for me now I have the job to do that and take all these relationships and all this knowledge and give it back to the people who need it most.
I like sharing. this in videos you like to release videos no we're going to start let's start financial fitness like i said with chase JPMorgan Chase Jamie Dimon very good guy for Shanda ok they are there helped leading in charge of saying how we can reach the people who we think they need the most financial information so I said put me out there we're going to go direct to the consumer so from colleges, high schools, senior classes, junior classes, go out and talk to people before for them to move on to the next stages of their life. a lot of things you should know so you're going to talk to them and just share personal information are you going to put this online too yeah yeah you'll be able to crawl and find content but I'm authentic so I said the best way to do it it's putting myself in a position to be heard well I want to be heard like it's a different story what I explained to the folks at JPMorgan Chase right as we were talking about this and as an amazing gathering of people who are just realizing this d the best way to go and do it and I said you can't have the white guy who has never been to the hood or isn't from the hood or has no idea how the economy works here and what the real problems are, you can't throwing that man in the situation to talk to people because I'm not listening to you from the door because you don't relate I don't relate to you but throwing someone in a situation who has lived through that has been in that has been what gré and now he's coming back to help run it it's a different ball game and that's who I want to be and you know we have other voices outside of me very powerful voices that will do it as well but the purpose is to align to really make a change so you can be the conversation about making a change you can be a real part of the action to do it I want to be part of the action and by doing it you will also be able to understand my drive you will understand why I do so much you will understand why my hand is in so much because i have access to it and the question should be why not yes the question shouldn't be you why is it doing everything it should do why aren't you why aren't you trying to do everything why not well that's what happens with a type you that becomes contagious like what you were saying about surrounding yourself with positive people and people who are constantly ambitious and there's fuel for you to feel good about that's what you're doing. around you show me an installation I loved it beautiful installation you tell me about how your podcast has grown to where you are now the success behind it on my radio station Laugh out loud Radio I got it It's mine I have a show there but you know Joe motivated me to do more I want to make sure that we really understand what is here inside your radio world because I just saw my boy in his space and I saw him happy is how successful he is I don't want to be you or beat you I want to take this energy and apply it in myself that's the purpose of seeing yes that's the purpose of being smart with your eyeballs you should be a sponge so I'm a sponge so I come here and I watch you maneuver I look at your set up I don't just lean in and you I congratulate, I go and I said, man, I'm inspired, man, that's great, John can't wait for two years. you'll call me, you'll see me, remember, i said i was inspired but you'll see what i let it grow into, that's the right way to encourage me to motivate well instead of hating, hating and competitive, yeah. mom beat you it's not a competition yeah i'm not interested in that either and i share exactly the same feelings it's not a competition at all yeah so if you don't have people like that to inspire you you might not know how positive it is and how powerful it is if you see someone who is on TV or on social media and you see them it's hard to get inspired you don't know them but you are. stay on that song you see the new car came out okay this is shit i can't stand that car man i can't stay in this town what we even in town what we eat.
I hate that place it's so easy if you people don't even listen to it it's so easy to be the smallest in the world the smallest but if it's always hate I can't stand these headphones why do we have these headphones ladies what a horrible day why the buzz here stan it's hard whatever i hate harwood how could you get a private table? I hate these chairs, you have better chairs. I hate these chi. P.S. it's so easy true so easy it's so easy to talk about each other yes and a lot of people don't realize that in a group you do it ping-pong you hate them yes unless it's fun it can be fun just between you trees yes Patrice was one one of the best funny one of the top 20 haters ok you bring up a good comedic point hate McConaughey does communicate one of the probably not the best Patrice Patrice I remember when he was talking and if he was saying something you just listen what do they would you tell your friends you, it made you feel good, like you're a comment, especially if you're funny, as I called Opie and Anthony one time, I was talking to them and Anthony, anything, always have a gun. concealed carry permit and i said to him i said do you ever worry that maybe you're pulling this energy out and you're manifesting some kind of attack on yourself because you're constantly thinking about it? you always have this weapon and Patrice says he doesn't believe in magic don't believe me summoning the world would come after you man it's like you just want to step back and look I don't know but it has bill burr so Marilyn oh bill used to get so mad Beautiful thing about Bill Barbara would be mad at Bill.
Bill is the type that is not funny. Where is the joke? There is no joke. He was so angry. We Comedy Cellar the days we were there. Quinn, when I say that we would sit at this table, we would set this table for four or five hours and it would be nothing but beautiful exchanges of crap with each other when I say that they used to give me so much, that's probably why it's so hard to bother me now. crap i took from age 20 to 24 and my young comic career about how horrible it was i had a joke i had a joke about where to start my career because at the time let me preface this this was at the beginning of my career this was ajoke i had about little people were midgets at the time and you know it was so bad because a cross eyed mitch robbed me and the joke was i didn't know he was robbing me because i was with someone else so i was looking at my friend but i he was stealing it was like a crisis game a very very horrible joke i remember telling his joke in a phone book he comes flying across the stage he put trees at me through a phone book i told him this ain't the boston comedy club people in a crowd little little place all you heard was and you sat up and hit the floor i said and patrice said read it it's better material than what you're saying he crawls laughs oh he's uh everyone could say they used to tear me apart so bad so bad man you claimed a withdrawal some news a corporate deal is masturbating in my house before this is I moved to LA I'm saying the two double apartments I just got Patrice coming out I said he needs It's an ass place I've got two rooms you can walk into it's my ex-wife time you know I'm coming home it's like an afternoon like Patrice my me all but three but run I get out in the bag open the door I said her big butt computer oh I see she has a hunched back so baby oil is fine and me. walk in my door he will come out get out get out he's so sick he's so sick he didn't stop he wasn't so worried about finishing then he didn't even stop and he turned around and nothing really came out yeah you just saw his hunched back.
He left like seven minutes late. It was like it was my fault. I can use go home for treatment. I love him to death. I love him to death. I met him was more than 100% yes good and bad yes you know there was some good and also some bad you know a lot of things t What wouldn't have been for Patrese probably could have happened but I think the level of not saying yes avoided some of that stuff, well he was almost too authentic yeah like his gypsy that was Charlie Sheen's roast whose roast was that? he did what he just tortured everyone else on the roast and then he went up there and you guys are this who is this oh my gosh Patrice has so many of those things yeah so many of the things one of the best to do if you're listening no you are polite I'm Patrice O'Neal, I'm just asking if you just saw Elvin in the room, one of his special ones, yes some of that, some of the funniest and most insightful men. it was then why the way people thought and behaved he said as one of the things he said i tell people all the time it's a brilliant thing he said it was forget what controversy it was but he was on tv with some woman who said you should never tell jokes about certain ngs things, you know, and they were getting mad at someone.
I think it was Opie and Anthony for a joke and he said you have to understand that all jokes come from the same place, the ones you like and the ones you don't like. the ones that make you laugh and the ones that make you mad they all come from the same place someone's just trying to be funny yeah like sometimes it just doesn't work i forgot his name but that was when he was doing all the upside promo and they kept trying to bring it down you know where do the jokes come from you know
kevinthese insensitive jokes where you said back then why what does it do to you why would you even say those things and the hardest thing for me to explain to you was do you think people think in jokes and while you're thinking about them you think they're not going to be funny all you think about as a joke you're thinking about it because you think you're going to laugh yeah the bet is if i get the lab vs. i don't get the lab don't laugh the joke wasn't funny in the funny moments we think can be great yeah i wish i had a more logical answer to back it up i said no especially at that point in my career i just thought it would be funny gone the same way as some people I think sir joke the offer is a thought comedians constantly throw around yes you constantly roll the dice and thor had to roll and well sure its not going to be good the other hat maybe it's ok maybe a little bit good but it's all meant to entertain it's not meant to be malicious it's not meant to cause hate it's all trying to make you laugh yes it is it's literally that simple a thought inside the comedian's mind if nothing they just kept trying to find thi It's like a hard definition of why and it's like I don't have it.
I don't have the reason why I thought it would be funny and it wasn't. That is the fall. The way is that until ten fifteen years ago there was never a discussion like this. Away I believe Jesus Christ you see their new offer what yeah and you'd laugh yeah they tell each other and yeah and it didn't matter what was a murder or rape joke or what some people just use those obscure . topics like they're trying to make us laugh, yeah, in meetings, the comedian, the comedian, there's always going to be, well, you guys just innovate, you know?
There's no way I could say no to some of the things I've heard myself say re Susan Smith, that lady who drowned her children. I know who you're talking about and I know the timing, but I'm not familiar with all that was involved. Holtzman was on stage that week and he says I heard those kids were wrong I heard they put that near the TV they never kept their blocks there we spilled their milk those kids won't be missed yeah and you were like oh me on 9/11 when it happened 9/11 don't let him on stage, well Mitzi Shore wouldn't let him on stage four months after 9/11, she can't keep him off stage, I mean do you, do you have the people, just Sartre? hear you howl and come back into the room you know like you go you know the comics is there in the back of the room they're going to laugh out loud with that chair and you know it's weird because right now inside sometimes i'm the comedian who chooses to be sensitive to the times you know i've made up my mind oh i get i get why you shouldn't say certain things why you should avoid this or that or this.
I get it and I am, but then there are other comedians that go. I'm not going to do that because people tell me this is what I'm going to try harder for, yeah, and I'll do that. It's not for me, you know? I don't like the flavor of this particular comedian, so I'm not going to endorse a watch from that comedian. I'm going to find another comedian. There are more to my liking. I'm going to go and turn my head like I want us to understand again that you just don't have to support it. If that is all.
There are many options. there's never been more comics i think about how many people were doing Netflix specials so many there's never been more it's such an easy thing so i don't understand why there's a push to destroy that you just don't have to support it like i think it's just a bunch of people who they have the ability to influence things now that they didn't have the ability before and it's like they see a window and want to throw a rock it's right there it makes sense i think there's something but i also think mm-hmm to us like meat to me in I particularly like comedy a lot it's one of my fits like I like Quentin Tarantino movies where people get shot and killed yes I don't want anyone to be shot dead in real life yes but I like comedy Yeah, do you know who Tim Dylan is? he is going so hard but i watched this video tears were rolling down my eyes i was crying and i said ok this guy needs this we need this right now because during this politically correct push you have this big giant gay guy who doesnt give a let me grab an animal watch this and we're going to be rai thirsty in captivity will be privately raised to be the greatest politician ever my name is Megan McCain and I'm on a new show we make people see this that riverboat casino catherine he is talking about my father again my father was tortured for a hundred years by this country and he came back and started seven wars because he is a gentleman try.

I'm around. I'm there with you. It's probably better. dude did you see that guy stomped on them and blew him away like all i could think is we don't see it in the video but that guy's head has to be smashed oh my god he had hit his head on the way? he fell backwards, yeah, have you ever seen one of the kind that slipped and fell down some steps at the museum and fell into the water? yeah, it's going, it's going in the water, Dumbo, right, you can't, you can't get over there's this guy coming up the stairs and this guy's legs come off my porch to, leave me alone and he keeps coming. do it don't do it and he got a boom the way he fell backwards you know hands behind him that's all head that's all head first of all to not see that kick coming yeah from a guy who says it's sad, but you also have to. realizing a guy that size is carrying all that weight with a donkey kick yeah that fell apart i got stomped on but to not see it one more time i always thought that about fat people but if you really are fat , imagine how strong your legs must be. should yeah if you really get some power behind that kick and also if you've lost weight you'd have these amazing legs that's always a theory it's just Anthony but I was wondering if his needs will go down wait what because you see someone from behind weighs like 500 pounds as t Their knees are that wide.
I'm fine, it's just that the bone is that fat around the bone, like the bone has grown too much because your body gets denser if you like heavyweight mmm like that if you look. just like weight lifters they are dense well part of that is not just their build it's that they are constantly lifting heavy stuff so your body thickens as you go but you know when when you meet people who are bigger make them focus on losing weight and stay away from weights and stuff and just do cardio you lose that fast yeah but you can't like it.
I know I know a couple of friends of mine and I lost like 130-140 pounds and they kind of fell in love with fitness now to the point where it's amazing how their body transforms and they like the new new process that they're in now quite a lot, yeah , they become addicted instead of food. getting addicted to being healthy exactly is totally possible ble totally possible i've had i don't know how many people come up to me and say they've lost over a hundred pounds because of listening to my show and havingfitness experts and diet experts and just talk about keeping up. away from sugar say don't eat late at night yes that's eating stop eating at a certain time and give yourself more than enough time to digest cal your calories start exercising well with me i think what helps as much as it does me i'm not a foodie You're not I'm not a foodie You just don't You know it's boring I have to go eat with you I'm just making a turk That's it Literally What's that?
I give this baked chicken some brown rice that's fine I'm fine don't worry about eating healthy I'm a healthy eater because I'm not a foodie so it's not like it doesn't matter as I don't have the will or want to eat the bad so if you're going through in and out burgers nothing nothing no man I'm black fried chicken f fried chicken you showed me a process Popeyes Roscoe is good too but Popeyes really stands out with Roscoe's paradise yes man Popeyes is I don't know what I don't know what's in that chicken better pretty good so look damn you like spicy it set my ass on fire but I still will yeah I still will but I'm not.
I can always eat the same thing and be fine. red beans and rice is a great thing to have on the side no one else has it is the best you never know me why Burger King or McDonald's pop has red beans and rice Popeyes is so good so good than when I was younger, I was about 22 years old, I was on a bike, I got hit by a car, not very hard, where I damaged myself, but I had Popeyes in my hand like the bag that I rode in on my bike and I was holding it with one hand. never let go go bag Wow that's how cool Popeyes the bike is everything else boom I'm there Popeyes I held on to nothing. g was damaged i still took home i finished that meal thats in crap thats good popeyes its 100% so thats my trick my trick is popeyes all day other than that im a thurr consistory im a healthy guy so dee take vitamins or supplements or anything i used to take multivitamins that inspired me to start making my house like right now we have bike ok i'm starting my own line of supplements vitae hustle love the vitamin we put out but let me tell you why i'm giving it to you to say why am i even getting into this space so when i look at fitness and i look at this world i noticed you know you have a great need to look like everything around you that you see like everyone likes everyone who are part of this world look so good and fit when they talk about these products and the things they can do and I said, you know what I can do and what I've done in my past.
I'm always bringing everyone's people together as a whole like there's no one alien. I realized when I did my runs with Nike and before Nike signed me it was about bringing in a bunch of people who had never run before and getting you guys to stand up, just come run with me, just give it a try and you'll find out that I have people that they never thought they'd do it and we're doing five miles, not ten miles, whatever, it's just a bunch, run something to say we did. a hustle in all of us that's what my multivitamin is about it's energy it's recharge it's the ability to focus it's approaching your day with all the tools you basically need it's not just about the physical aspect it's about health so yeah I can really motivate people to take a step in the right direction of health with a line of supplements aimed at the everyday person who may not know or be aware but wants to participate but isn't in it to look like all these different people in the ones you are to be the best version of yourself, how can I do that?
I teamed up with a great group of people to create the best possible products I want to make and I said I wanted to be patient so it took me four years to create about us and how many different products do you buy now just for doses vitae Hustle is the only one I have in right now so is it just a vitamin just a multivitamin but is it an amazing multivitamin is it a single pill or is it a pack but no it's a it's a jar I should have bought a good job a jar Jesus Christ so I'll give you like to mix it with some stuff no it's a full jar like all pills yeah pills ok um i'll tell you the cool stuff in it because i don't want to say nothing and have it where it's wrong so i always have it in my screen man omg i get it guys you see that yeah that's why you're here let's save that to my phone blueberry fruit extract scroll scroll back up there boron biotin beta carotene vitamin A mmm-hmm what's all good it's all good it's more than a multivitamin.
I'll plan it in a good time. What does that mean? well look it up it's also nice that everything in it you know it's not only researchable but you'll see why as my most important thing as a guy who's not that familiar with space I said who are the people I mean they do it at a high level that I can bring in to help me build this product, so I feel like you're never going to do it alone, you shouldn't try to do it alone and you don't take shortcuts, you don't. don't go the cheap route don't do it wrong something you have to do it all over again Brian so I went and looked at the people that were involved in creating the best marketplaces quotes the best stuff on the marketplace and put that together team I put together a team like four to five I'll tell you that for years I spent a lot of t money developing this because it wasn't right at first I had to go back I had to do it again it wasn't right I had to go back find out the other things they did that others things were better than things great had to go well go find again try do it again not right what else is out there what do we compare to? he said there is no lie there is no false presentation behind the product kevin
hartz multivitamins much more than multivitamins but more important is something for everyone and more important is awakening the hustle within all of us and it is the first there will be more but it will be after there is mastered and done this at the highest level, then I went to product number two, then I went to product number three before you know it, you want to see a whole line that Kevin Hart slowly develops that people can ac believe in because I'm a product of my own product thats the best thing in the world when you are a product of your product it has to work for me before i say it will work for everyone else so take this stuff damn well i take it how long i take it i spend all this money i better take it i've been taking the one that's being released now for about five to six months well i've been taking this one i'm very happy because i actually feel the d ifference and the difference is only in the energy you have with him day.
It's not an energy pill, but I do feel a difference in my ability to last through the day the way I do. make it light so i told you i'm starting at 5:30 late and i'm not shutting down to let 9 10 i saw a video one time where you were filming your trainer passed out yeah i eat this lifestyle y'all very unattractive sleeper by the way he shoots Tim's boss Ronald over the line and one of the worst sleepers you've got at sea So you take him with you everywhere yeah my trainers drop me everywhere Wow , everywhere, so you train every day, every day Wow, every day Sundays are light days like cardio maintenance is what we call not doing the same thing every time we change it I love changing the subject.
I love finding new things in Fitness to make it fun. You will never get bored. So your whole purpose is to maintain your vitality. Keep your energy high. there's a delay i need to train i need to do it because i'm so mentally invested in it now that when i don't i feel like i've cheated myself in a day or a week that i've come unstuck i feel like a man. I'm not myself because when I do it I feel like I'm always engaged. I am committed to constantly building, remodeling and molding. I'm working on myself so when I'm not working on myself I don't feel like my day is supposed to be about me it's starting off with the biggest bang right now It's to my advantage to start like nobody else.
My day begins before the worms and the birds rise. It's time to get up five past five and that's when you start working out. Jim 5:15 5:20 really 5:15 5:20 no food no I don't eat I don't need before training yes I don't I don't eat before training I never had I didn't know what I am now because I'm getting older I'm more aware of my body so I'm big on sports massages. I'm big on, you know, making sure I don't put myself in a position where I get injured and overworked, so I stretch, you know, trying to get as much movement. which how i can like it when i say i'm a little walking muscle i really AM my flexibility is limited so right now that's my biggest focus so i'm about to start doing yoga trying to do those things that can keep me in a position so as not to squeeze myself so as not to throw anything because I do a lot Are you going to do hot yoga?
Yes, do it all the time. you roll it up I love it. Incredible. Do it every week. Yes. The only thing that has stopped me from doing it is the smell. I thought you had to get over that yeah baby I hear I get pretty sick sometimes yeah the place I go is nice you just gotta make sure people take care of themselves well you know he'll be surrounded by stinky people. I'll be honest, I'm worried about myself. I don't know what I'm going to get, especially if you arrive early in the morning. You know how to eat.
You won't worry about farting. they're letting go and I explain to them that the killer Mikey was talking to me about farting in you ga class I'm the boy you can't be eating no you can't be eating before so early you're going to go I like to go at 6:00 a.m. which is weird most of the time 8:00 8:00 8:30 depends where which place I go - but you love it although it's great for your head - it's 90 minutes of suffering you know it's hot it's you one hundred and five degrees one hundred four degrees when you walk out of there you feel like you did something really yeah and it just changes the way your body feels: in terms of your range of motion, your flexibility, all those weird connecting knots and everything just opens up and you know that my question is when you are starting no, yes, how will I do it. it's extremely hard and a fresh start just bring lots of ice water just bring a big ol 64 ounce one of those you know thermos of ice water make sure you have enough water and drink enough water before I'm talking put me in a bag, yeah, just start now.
I don't need to be what people can see. me we only have a section in the back yeah well you turn left turn right everyone will see you yeah I say can I be in a place where they're going to see me at first like I don't want them to nobody saw me? you're an athletic man you're going to be fine you're going to be tight it's going to be hard for you to strike certain poses but you'll be fine i'll definitely do it i definitely realize it's a challenge me i'm definitely going to try 100% would you do it too ?
No, that's next, yes, that's next, Justin. I'm just here, listen, this is where Rico was laughing because I said, oh man, don't laugh. I said whatever you show me right now is my first time doing it. I do not do it. I don't kick. I don't know how to kick well. that day we did we worked on it and i think i threw a couple of good kicks a couple of good front kicks and i said i said take care i'm done with boxing i said this w will be my next test to learn to probably throw some kicks and move with my lower body now that I've worked on my upper body that's my next hobby that's your next time you know jiu jitsu is like that's the hard choice and you want to do that too.
I'm just this. As you get older, you have to find what to do well. If you can't find what to do, you won't lose your mind. You would get addicted to it. I just want to learn. I would like to because there's a lot to learn that's the thing, it's a long, long, endless, endless, endless, endless journey, there are also so many different variations of each different individual move and entries into new moves and defense and then the structure of it gets so crazy it's very complicated my son my son does a my son is heavy in boxing in karate i got it for that so he does both so the reason why i want to do i just like to keep up with him so we can know how to do things together I have trainers coming to the house and we'll work out together he loves it so I don't want to be left behind you know we have 1718 and we'll say Dave I don't want that but we better back off when they start to be so confident i just want to be able to hold and hold that's why i like to do it with them well it's good for a kid to have that in his head which is not defensive confidence yeah he needs it s to trust I will help you avoid things too well.
I tell my kids you know your last name puts a target on your back that you didn't ask for and we're not going to make trouble but you should always be prepared for trouble ifthey were. happen and if they do I just want them to know how to stand up for themselves so the things I make my kids do just have the knowledge and understanding the worst thing is just not knowing they know they are growing up completely different than I grew up where I grew up you didn't have no choice but to know if you don't know how to fight, that's all. our ass because they're going to test you, there's no way around it, they're going to judge you, they're going to rob you, you're going to get your backpack, take it, I'm going to try to take snakes like it's reality, it's not a fake reality that's real so if you're not ready for it if you don't have any kind of heart you won't last from where i grew up heart was everything and heart sometimes said i don't care if i get my ass yelled at i won't be a talk whatever that moment was, it was about establishing whatever level of respect you could and respect that eventually turned into friendship from everyone so my kids don't know what that world is like, they never will, so like father I just have to make sure that you have all the tools that I can possibly equip you with because my president has the ability to give it to me, we don't rent a financial space to take me here and have this extracurricular activity or this activity d extracurricular or learn it learn then exist that's the great riddle of success hebert can actually when successful people have children what made them successful is dry I grew up poor we were also on welfare and food stamps the whole thing when i was a little kid and that always stuck in my head this thought that we might not have enough food as I remember thinking that when it was a bit like what if we don't have food what if we run out of food?
My kids will never feel like they don't understand what that is and everyone I've ever met, that interest stemmed from some crazy struggle, yes, when they were young, yes. and that's what you and me and most people who are doing well in life are raising your children in a completely different way than what literally got you to the dance and the first thing is the hunger of not being one of those people that's left behind is what makes you successful in the first place and it's scary it's scary because you know my wife my wife told me that she was like you know I love that you're not hard on your kids but you always make sure that there is a lesson inside your conversation like i don't yell i will yell at my kids nothing will register when i'm yelling so i tried my best to talk to all of you i met my angriest i'm going to talk to you so that can process this because you guys need to understand what the problem is.
You need to understand what's wrong and what I really had to realize is that they didn't ask to be born into this. how we were raised right and we can't have anger or frustration being dedicated and thrown at them because they understood it so much better than we had how do we make sure it gets passed down to the right lessons so they appreciate and understand and not take it for granted the right they have platform It's hard for me because good kids good students plot themselves in school listen don't do nonsense yeah they want to play video games and stay awake like any other kids no sign of let it be bad or crazy yeah and the fear and panic is you got a note it's bad and crazy exists well this fairytale day we're in isn't real and sometime when i'm not around when your mother isn't it's around when you have friends or other family members around you You may be tested with the other side that's here that you've never really gotten a good look at so I have to prepare you for what you don't know exists.
I have to take you to Philly so you can see. I try to show my kids where I grew up. even thinking it's going to be like oh my gosh it failed it's so cool we can live here shut up you told everyone here the car right now around you talk like that move your back this isn't going well it's supposed to oh my gosh so cool daddy is so different oh my god he walked it around a neighborhood and it's like it's just not a reality you didn't have a grass and that's dad oh that's cool could you play why were you here? yeah when you hear this stuff it's so different man these were your steps the steps are broken how did you even play oh my god daddy so wait we're weird it was yours we lived on the top floor not at all no that's three separate units so the top floor was me and grandma was the middle which was someone else who was a neighbor and downstairs or someone else three different people lived in this one thing together all of you with strangers my own hands I don't know I don't know what what does this part say yes right in the car but when you see that's the reality you get hit with i have to make sure i'm talking i have to make sure i'm constantly teaching yes if i'm not and i'm not doing my part , I'm failing you know I took them to the neighborhood and I showed them how the stores work they are in the neighborhood this is what we got candy from here this is what we would get little sandwiches from y'all walk we don't have stores like this I can't We walk these things it's a whole different world well it's a whole different world seeing people stand on street corners what they do are big they sell drugs that's hard there those are people your dad still knows have been there forever that's what you don't want to do but they are forced with these decisions just because of what they have to do you just need to see this dad is taking you here to see this he drove them all over north philadelphia all over south philadelphia se made sure they could see yes see physically we leave the country we go to these resorts and islands before we go they are going to drive so you can see what is there before you get to this that is why we have to be good people that is why we try to everyone with respect that's why your dad likes to give to everyone that hasn't I'm constantly hitting my kids with that information because if you assume that everyone makes you look like It's like this when you're surrounded by people who don't like it, yeah how you did it, nor the advantage they had growing up the way they are now, it's a very weird thing and they don't understand it there's no way there's a small percentage yes a very small percentage and that's something I never want to let go of so it was in the back of my head are you talking about how do you know we'll have? enough food you were going up Chris Rock joke is so great he used to say hello he has a bag packed at the front door because he doesn't think this is his I really think you lose weight any minute someone will get you you thought you lived here you visited joy and i was like it was so real because even though you have it you can't lose sight of the reality of where you once were, yeah are you comfortable where you are now or are you still? having such thoughts like this is real because you're in this stratosphere of fame and success that's rare among rares hmm you know it's like david goggin said you're rare among rare men i'll be one hundred percent honest and say i'm I am comfortable with the understanding that hard work brings great rewards this is a reminder of the hard work and dedication I put into everything I have done I am not happy because I know where I came from and I never want to go back that doesn't mean I'm not I want to go back to the city that doesn't mean I'm going back to the people that means I don't want to go back to living like before I'm going back and I'm going to help I want to inspire what to motivate I want to show people that there is a way out that there is a way do more to get more to get more but personally I don't want to lose everything I've been able to get so I need to make sure I do everything I can to keep it so I can't be happy mmm so there is an understanding but i refuse to flip the switch so even if you like it and even if you have more money than you will spend for the rest of your life that's not what it's about it's about inspiring people and influence and constantly giving back and moving forward in a positive way and the only way you can do that is to stay active it's history man yeah you know we're all writing a book what your book looks like ummm how your book looks like your life is a lump you have a lot of chapters in your book but when they closed that book how good was the book how good was your book what was the end of your book yes the end of my book can be so amazing because of all that money was made all that was done achieved the first to do the man who did this caused a merger between this because of his commitment and growth communities were given this did education this changed the way Baba Baba was educated s gave books gave them computers gave them all the things that can be associated with you and that your existence becomes part of the chapters of your book, so my impulse is about my book.
I was a number one New York Times bestseller. to vote now yes what happened what if you are to tom the number one new york times bestseller if you get both what if you get all three hey man how do books become successful who publishes them i want to start a publication heartbeat company heart posting why not hmm that's all im doing is raising awareness and others to go why could why can't i create why can't i start why can't i be a business why can't i be a CEO why can't I be a tech guru?
Why can't I create lotions from kitchen products? Since there are so many things that some people just don't understand what they can do, let me be a place to show how many different things you don't have to do just one thing when all is said and done. and voila, my book will be full of everything Kevin Hart did because I never settled for doing just one, two or three, why not Kevin? Why are you creating health and wellness products? Why not? Why can't I try to create something I filled? It's cool and jumping into a space I'm already in.
I already give one hundred percent of myself in this space. Why not? Why can't I talk about financial wealth? Why can't I go back and educate those who don't know? Because you do not have time? I buy time. You certainly can, but it's so unusual for someone to spend so much energy and time giving back and getting involved with the kind of projects you're talking about, as well as being super ambitious with your own career, it makes me h happy, yeah I realized that that I am really happy. Discovery makes me happy, like when you find different things that excite me.
It makes me happy and it's weird when it clicks and school days tell you all the time. a lot of knowledge that book time to read that book i want to go home damn Sonic the Hedgehog i want to play i am at level 3 i have something to read this book the info is stuff in there you were forced to swallow it at a certain age you just might not get it you're getting it right but then it clicks, you may get information differently and what you do with that information is up to you, but people have different roles, you can go downhill, education wasn't my choice. it didn't do it for me but the knowledge in common sense that has naturally allowed me to get information apply it differently allowed me to develop my intelligence in so many different avenues to where I said oh my gosh I found my niche I found my story nt and now there are others things that my talent can lead me to.
I don't have all the knowledge and awareness, but I can allow people to do that thing that can teach me because now guess what learning is great, you know what happened. I don't have to keep doing well, it's proper, you're a kid, you're forced into this school, you don't want to learn, but then when you come out and you realize, oh, this really benefits me. Does it make me a better person? this makes me wiser it's 100 percent dirty and it's weird how it happens but when you go oh my gosh learn and knowledge is power mmm they used to tell me this when i was 10. now is the time i finally get it damn i'm about to turn 40.
It took me all this time to get the damn code but I got it yeah it hits you at a different time mm-hmm and when it gets excited man you. excited I'm excited for turning 50 I'm turning 40 you read books I don't read many books you listen to recorded books I've listened to books you know what we're going to do what Tony Robbins is great Tony is how I like his approach to giving information mm-hmm i like his attitude in general i like podcasts i like things that are real and outside of what is presented in front of me i like information i can go to the source and touch and talk so its me and i am reading a book , is a book recommended by such and such a person. who gave it to me and that is reading that book i learn more about the person i thought i already knew and now i earn more michelle obama's book great book great book i met her i talked to her i have been in the same rooms i have seen her success what going to try his book mmm or read a book wow i get it i get smart moving all the units he's moving i understand why women are reading his book and they leave feeling better feeling like they can't i get it oh wow hmm certain friends dwyane Wade wrote a book focused on being a parent on their road tobecoming a better father because of what happened with the mother of his children he developed a relationship more than a bond with his children like no one else Wow I didn't know that day that's great I love how you put it on the page there are certain things I just want knowing certain books helps i understand why people read books i understand what information you know the book i'm working on right now is all about the mental approach you have to life and people don't understand that your biggest enemy is you all my book is about you fighting against yourself, people to understand, it's you against yourself, the only person standing in your way is you, no one else is you now, when you write a book like this and especially about something like this, that's how you.
I managed to navigate through life mm-hmm, do you write it in essays? you do it me Don't get on your phone all voice memos and transcripts are fine so because of the time you don't have no time to sit and write mm-hmm so you need someone you can talk to during hours. hours hours into it hey i need an hour but i have to scream for myself i have some things we want to talk to you about keV what what is that ok book title ideas subtitle ideas my dedication is my intros inside my intros all these they are powerful paragraphs and the things that i just said that are now transcribed i can go back and read them come take a look here no conversation at all every one of them um no conversation at all and that's what the internet has allowed people to do the internet has allowed people to do Skip steps 1-30 since many people jump right to 100.
Good job. shoot them down. You should be dead. change i'm not that guy that we're doing th These weird things now that people don't take the time to sit down and think what I've understood is that what people are doing has nothing to do with me. I must always be one step ahead because I am thinking differently because I am thinking about myself to improve myself puts me in a position to make others better be the example not the problem the best way to eliminate the problem is a right of retention 8 yourself from him these are business thoughts oh it's thought i can pass and just read this is so you just have these philosophies of your life and you just talk listen just talk dance so now this is random able Columbus that's awesome there's the whole transcript this is it Sarge comes back throughout the day and I read and I'm like this is great this makes sense this didn't let me rephrase this I mean make sure it all flows together and at the end of the day what's my reason for it book my reason for the book is to make you better my reason for the book is to make people understand yeah we all agree we should all think we're great there's no reason you shouldn't think we you're great, if you don't think you're great, ask yourself why, why don't you think so? the highest of yourself when you do it people have no choice but to do the same hmm you had no choice but to follow suit many people draw on their past draw on the life they have experienced up to this point makes you better, yeah it makes you come back it better make you smarter yeah unless you say so yeah man that's the cool thing about that that's the cool thing about life you can hear a guy like you say that and then change your perspective and then you.
I'll go out there and take action you may not have taken before I had a 585 on my SAT confessions I took no money confession they gave you a 404 put your name on a piece of paper it's a true story Wow I guessed a BAC a da I did it hocus pocus true story I swear to god mano at my mother's grave to BAC to da I didn't care because there was a class trip that same day I wanted to go on a big adventure they told me that they are not taking my SAT seriously but they forbid me to move forward in life that's it what they told me at the time i said damn i should have maybe i should have applied maybe i should have been different when i saw my friends get their test scores back and they were ecstatic 800-900 960s they all go to college i felt like the idiot biggest in the world the biggest idiot in the world because the same people I want to run with to go on a great adventure with them had taken an SAT a week before and they already finished their work mmm they did everything they can I put what they should do to make that fun time really fun for them, I was the only idiot who didn't prioritize or take care of me, so I'm the only one who goes to Community College, everyone else goes to Temple University from Villanova, Drexel University, dammit I just fell behind, why didn't you guys? tell me everyone did it last week, how come you just tell me we were serious about college?
You didn't tell me you were trying to go to Simple or Drexel. Everything waits. they're doing what they're supposed to do hey idiot sit alone and figure it out because that's where you should learn your lesson any chance you're given should take series from this point on because otherwise you may find yourself feeling like this isn't it I get depressed at one point I learn from it I learned from it now I have to take a fucking test you better believe I'm studying for that test because I don't want to feel like I'm the guy mmm that didn't prepare now I have a story to tell my kids about what it feels like to be the kid in class who didn't prepare who has the cool words when they return all those grades but it's from my experience I don't underestimate those moments you take those moments you make the best of them because their life lessons are that simple you are saying that it is positive but in reality it is just simplicity that is very real it is real and it is your life experience and it is your life lessons 100% but The fact that a guy like you comes out and talks about it like that is where it makes it really powerful because it's not just something you learn from but now other people can learn from your past as well that's what I hope they look at themselves and realize that we all start from a different point you're not saying yes, that's why I'm so candid.
I am so sincere. I am so open. They are there. There is no like boys. I'm fine with being an open book. I'm okay with being flawed I'm okay with all the things that have happened to me that have been exposed I'm okay with everything I don't hide I don't run from it I don't I won't avoid any of it. I'm fine. Alright. It's a bed I made for myself. I happily slept in it. third son don't stop for nobody man son don't stop so I'll get up in the morning regardless of that son getting up in the morning regardless of how I feel and how down I am the sun will shine the morning and night the moon will be there and you will look up these days will keep passing so let the days go by and look up and don't waste a year doing what, what, just pick it up alright, i'll figure it out, I made some mistakes, life goes on, let me figure out life from this point on.
I'm a carry on type of person. You are a bad Kevin Hart. down here and talked about I'm more than happy I think it took too long actually and this is the first of what will be a lot of guys I'm sure I'm a fan too and just think what you're doing is not just inspiring in terms of what you've been able to accomplish and who you are, but also inspiring and how dedicated you are to helping other people. That means a lot for me. It is very motivating. Is very powerful. like listen just pretend and then become that guy because you're honest if you could do that and just say it and talk forget what's fake or not don't trust me you'll see more financial capacity is real this relationship with chase and no, she's making sure that you put me in a position to get the information that I have and to the people who really need it, that's the priority.
I will send more kids to college this year. my donation so you know I think I'm going to end up probably probably having about a good 21.5 million where we take it we just put that money away and just provide free education. UNCF helps me too that's a priority like I said this health and wellness side will see more of me vital so calm down. be a part of this hustle go get yours irresponsible on netflix filming filming we're about to go christmas there's so much going on man listen if there's ever something you want to promote you want people to know im your man me like that say thanks bro really I appreciate that I thank you bye everyone
