MrBeast has revealed that he sometimes works eight days non-stop to churn out YouTube content.
During an interview on Russian-American computer scientist Lex Fridman's podcast, the 24-year-old shared his secret to success.
And the man is constantly grinding.
While he admits that having such a strenuous regiment can be stressful, giving into his ‘innate nature to work’ has improved his mental health.
He added: “The most depressed I get is when I try to restrict it, like, 'I don't work weekends' or 'I don't work this day'.
"What's best for me is just to work when I feel like working."
MrBeast, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson, said there are some nights he doesn’t sleep because he's filming and editing videos instead.
He continued: “When I'm really in the grind mode it'll be seven or eight days just non-stop going, going, and then I'll realize, 'Oh, I need some recharge time,' and then go f**king binge a season of anime."
The workhorse disclosed that while this isn’t the ‘norm’ surrounding himself with like-minded people who are highly motivated helps.
He said: "If you're around similar people, it's so much easier."
But he also doesn't recommend people following his work regime.
"Normal people, they don't want that life, and they probably shouldn't," he shared. "It's not good for you."
And without a doubt, this formula has worked as he's become the number one YouTuber and gained 20 million subscribers in one year.
While appearing on The Joe Rogan Podcast, the savvy content creator shared that he has cultivated a fairly quick and easy method to grow his following.
This includes his dubbed channels which - as the name suggests - show his videos dubbed in other languages.
He told Rogan: “We actually… I’m kind of curious why you don’t do this… we do our videos in other languages as well.
“So these are the exact same videos on my main channel, but we pay voice actors to dub over them. We translate the text on the video - everything.”
This is nothing short of a stroke of genius, as he told the podcaster that MrBeast en Español was ‘one of the fastest growing channels last year’.
And the numbers speak for itself, as the Spanish version language of his channel went from 300,000 viewers to a jaw-dropping 22 million in a single year.
He added: “Less than 10 per cent of the world speaks English - so 90 per cent of the world can’t even enjoy your content.
"And when I realised that, I was like, ‘wait a minute - 90 per cent of the world can’t even watch this stuff’.”
