AceShowbiz - Comedian Kevin Hart has taken on a role as life coach for his new audiobook.
The "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" star is sharing advice and tips in "The Decision: Overcoming Today's BS for Tomorrow's Success", in the hopes of providing listeners with a little "motivation and inspiration" to achieve their personal and professional goals.
Hart admits he would never have expected to become a self-help guru, but he felt compelled to pass on the lessons he's learned over the years to help others in need of a little guidance.
"I think that's the beautiful thing about life, you have no idea where you can end up or the paths that you can take on until they're discovered," he told U.S. breakfast show "Today".
"So this space of motivation and inspiration has been a discovery but it's something I've fallen in love with and this is a passion project. This is something that I wanted to do."
"I wanted to inspire, motivate, and inform. I feel like that's something that's missing a lot, which is information. So I said, 'If I have information, why not share it, give it, give people the choice of looking at things through a different lens?'"
In the audiobook, Hart uses his journey to stand-up comedy stages as an example of a goal he set his sights on achieving, which forced him to "actually work hard at something."
"When I made that decision, I started to see the rewards," he said. "I saw the rewards from my hard work, from my efforts, from me really being determined to continue to go down that bumpy road and not give up."
And Hart is confident sharing his path to success will enable others to realise their own dreams.
"This story that I have... is personal, it's funny, and yet it's real, and I think that in today's time, if more people shared their journey, their story of how, you're gonna answer so many questions that people have,” he explained.
"This isn't an audiobook to tell people to live like me or do what I do, it's just to give you the information as to how it was obtained, that's it."
"The Decision: Overcoming Today's BS for Tomorrow's Success" is available via Audible.
