Kevin Hart is everywhere these days and I mean everywhere, with 'What now'.

The guy is on the road promoting his latest project, his stand-up comedy film 'What Now' that will be out in theatres today, Friday, October 14, 2016.

He is on radio shows, talk shows, YouTube interviews, and Instagram comedy skits just for one reason- promoting his new film. You would think that 'What Now' has not been predicted to make up to $15m in the cinemas in its opening weekend. You would think that 'What Now' hasn't gotten positive reviews from critics.

'What now' is another successful chapter in the book of Kevin Hart. The guy has been on fire for the last five years and with the way he is going, he will be around for a while.

With his outstanding success, Kevin Hart has his share of critics. His movies such as 'Ride Along', 'Ride Along 2' and 'Central Intelligence' have been slammed by movies for being cheesy and predictable.


Some fellow stand-up comedians have also said Kevin Hart is exactly funny on stage. Anyone who is aware of the history of African-American stand-up comedians knows that Hart is far from the great such as Eddie Murphy, Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor and Chris Rock.

Yes, Kevin Hart is not yet in the hall of fame but the thing about the newly married comedian is this. He has never said he is the new Denzel Washington or is the best stand-up comedian you have heard. For Kevin Hart, his success is down to hard work.

There is popular saying that hard work beats talent when talent refuses to work hard. This is Kevin Hart. Katt Williams is funnier than Hart but while the movie star has grinded hard for his position in the business.

There is a difference between potential and greatness. In between the two is hard work. If you don't work hard, your potential dies and you can never be great.

Football star Ronaldo is who he is today not because he scores a crazy amount of goals every season but because he trains himself to score a crazy amount of goals every season. Nothing is ever achieved without hard work.

The movie 'Whiplash' released in 2014, highlights the importance of hard work. The character Andrew Neiman bleeds and makes himself a hermit so that he can achieve his dream of being a world-class drummer.

He was a talented drummer but to get to the level he wanted he pushed himself to the limit.

Kevin is not the best actor or best comedian but he is the best at working hard and being who he wants to be. More talented comedians haven't attained the heights he has reached because they haven't worked as hard as him. They are also not as disciplined as him.

Talent is nothing without hard work and discipline. This is what has made Kevin Hart successful.
