A Review of The Decision: Overcoming Today’s BS for Tomorrow’s Success by Kevin Hart

Kevin Hart is hands-down one of the most successful entertainers of all time.

His rise to fame began in Philadelphia’s hardcore stand-up comedy scene. Through appearances in clubs, television shows, and his own social accounts, Hart established himself not just as a comedian, but also as a motivational speaker and fitness icon. In turn, this has helped expand his entrepreneurial ventures. Recently, a report by The Richest, states that “the busiest man in Hollywood” is even partnering with Nutribolt in a bid to take on the multi-billion dollar sports supplement market.

In addition to his business ventures, Hart’s $200 million net worth has also allowed him to become a regular player at charity poker tourneys. In fact, Hart is even mentioned near the top in a list of the richest card players by – side-by-side with the greatest cardslingers in history by virtue of his staggering wealth and charitable actions. Indeed, Hart’s career has been nothing short of impressive. And while it can be tempting to attribute these accomplishments to the man’s natural charisma and talent, it would be doing a disservice to the hard work that Hart has put into his career over the years.


Juggling the roles of entertainer, philanthropist, fitness icon, motivational speaker, and entrepreneur isn’t easy. And in his new audiobook, The Decision: Overcoming Today’s BS for Tomorrow’s Success, Kevin Hart spills the beans on how he got to where he is today. Published by Audible Originals, the 2021 Audie Awards finalist for Audiobook of the Year is a unique take on motivation to say the least.

Parts IV to V: This section’s filled with advice for everyday approaches and practices to build mental fitness. Alongside good nutrition, this includes ensuring positive inputs throughout your life, whether in your mindset, your environment, or the company you keep. Hart also details the importance of embracing discomfort and learning to visualize the outcomes you want.

Part VI: Capping off the lessons, Hart clarifies how your life’s end goal shouldn’t be factors like fame, money, or success. Instead, focus on building a life that is meaningful and purposeful. And along the way, learn to enjoy the successes which remind you that you’re on the right path.
