Audible Original The Decision


Despite the global shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the hardest working man in show business is back with a new project, enlisting the help of world’s largest producer and provider of spoken-word entertainment and audiobooks. Today, actor, comedian and entrepreneur, Kevin Hart, released his brand new Audible Original audio book The Decision: Overcoming Today’s BS for Tomorrow’s Success. For the superstar comedian there was no better fit than the audio format with Audible.

“The reason this had to be done as an Audible Original is because you needed to hear the honesty. Reading a book like this doesn’t do it justice”, Hart said of the collaboration. “I saw a crazy amount of success with my first book  I Can’t Make This Up: Life Lessons on hard copy as well as Audible. But I found people really love to hear me tell the stories, the personality, the comedic tone, as well as the serious. That’s a combination a lot of people don’t have within the presentation of their product, so there was no other option for me.”

In this follow-up to his New York Times best-selling memoir, I Can’t Make This Up, the comedian turned life coach takes us on the Kevin Hart Mental Fitness Bootcamp, challenging listeners to go past their comfort zone and step into the unknown, on the way to success. He goes in-depth in talking about the pitfalls that keep us from being successful, from jealousy and comparison to self-doubt and fear of failure. He then equips listeners with the weapons for success, including positive mindset, consistency and determination, as well as Kevin Hart-isms like “What-Is-Ness”, “Cowboying Up” and “Teddy Bearing”.

Part self-help book, part social commentary, and standup comedy routine, The Decision is a really glimpse into the mind and winning attitude of one of Hollywood’s most successful actors and comedians. Hart has reached the pinnacle of success and has come back down to give us the road map on how to think and play the game the right way. If you’ve ever wished you could one-on-one coaching from Kevin Hart, now is your chance. It will make you laugh, cry, hurt, and think all at the same time, but most of all it will make you want to change.

Despite his rise to fame, Hart isn’t finished just yet. When asked what keeps him motivated and still in the game, Hart told SHIFTER, “I would really like to become a billionaire, and I really want people to understand why. It’s not for the money that comes with being a billionaire…It’s the hope given to the people behind. It’s the dream that people understand can become reality. If you’re a guy who has come from nothing and figured out how to turn that nothing into something. It’s the ability to go back, talk and give, and more importantly incentivize, create opportunities jobs and impact.”

With the game he shares in this book, we have no doubt in will happen.
