Kevin Hart-Ebony-Magazine-September-2016-BellaNaija-001

Comedian, actor and all-round entertainer Kevin Hart is on the cover of Ebony Magazine’s October-November 2016 Issue.

He talks about Moguldom, Marriage and Race in America in the magazine and here’s an excerpt:

If you’re going to roll the dice, roll it on yourself. There’s a little battery in me that goes, ‘Ah, man. The minute you go to sleep, that guy who’s next, that guy who wants the spot you have, is working.”

“I’m not a content guy. Even with all the achievements, it’s not enough because there’s so much more life to live, and there’s so much more to do and accomplish. I think the thing that honestly keeps me going is the fact that it’s out there for the taking. I don’t think people really understand that you get out of life what you put into it. The more blood, sweat and tears you have behind the passion, the more rewards you’ll see behind the work.”

“When you talk about making your mark, you’re talking about building a legacy, leaving a blueprint. I’m doing that,”

    Congrats to him. Me, I’ll work smart and get that sleep. Without sleep, I’m of no use to anyone or myself.

      even Jesus slept at the right time. After you die, someone will still beak die record. The best thing in life is to live according to God’s plan and will and when you work, He shall make it yield increase. I work well and sleep well. Even King Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived said the best is to work and enjoy it well cos another that didnt sow many reap ur benefit.

    Y’all giving excuses to stay mediocre.
    Kevin isnt saying you shouldn’t sleep literally, He’s saying don’t rest on your oars thinking you have arrived. Keep working hard and putting in your best, because someone is always there waiting to take your spot.
    You saying even Jesus slept at the right time, The same bible said that ‘“A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, Then your poverty will come as a robber and your want like an armed man”.
    Still one of the funniest verses of the bible to me.

    Wow. Apparently United Nations voted us in last place in terms of education and basic health care. And I believe it. So adults can’t understand someone’s figure of speech :/

    Loool empty ambition- he will die and leave it all. It is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.. Why do humans strive so badly to reach success and covet it their whole lives. More money, bigger house, higher status, climbing the corporate ladder. It is all meaninglessness. You will die and leave it all behind, it will all rot away. In 200 years absolutely no one will care about your existence. Ask yourself if you care to think for the guy on the horse that passed on the very land you’re standing on 300 years ago. So instead of chasing this secular idea of success in futility, go before the lord and ask him his will for your life and run your race well in obedience to him, fulfilling all he’s called you to do. Life is but a vapor and it’s outcome is death. After that is a vast unfathomable eternity of either heaven or hell. Keeping this mind ask yourself what should you be chasing after if those are the two outcomes of life. And if you dont believe in God i urge you to seek him out. The seas dont stop where they do because science. Science does not cause it, it explains how it happens according to human’s fabricated and dumbed down understanding of how the universe works. And this explanation took the contribution of millions of humans over thousands of years marked by trial and error as theories were created and refuted. It is not a god to be able to create and command the seas to stop and not engulf the earth nor the sun to be situated exactly where it is and not even 0.1 of a millimeter away so it doesn’t burn humans to death. Pick up a Bible and start reading. You can be saved now or you can wait to find out the truth for yourself when you die and it’s too late. Death is only a heartbeat away. It’s up to you but know that you will bow down before the living God one day.
