Tyrese's New Book "How to Get OUT of Your OWN WAY" Revealed!

Book Description:
Actor, singer, and songwriter Tyrese Gibson crafts an inspirational memoir filled with every emotion and life experience one could possibly imagine. Pairing honest and revealing personal stories with reflective questions based on his extremely popular online messages to his “Love Circle,” Tyrese hopes to motivate readers to pursue their dreams and not let life’s obstacles stand in their way.

How to Get Out of Your Own Way is organized into a series of fundamental questions that helped Tyrese redefine who he was as a human being and evolve into a new man. Tyrese stresses the importance of understanding your environment in order to get in control of your life and become the person you want to be. "Most people have ambitions," he explains, “but they have no clear sense of direction.” He brings a level of clarity and understanding about how to get through different challenges to help you make better choices. His passion and love for his fans is evident throughout: “I want to give people permission to want better for themselves and take their lives to another level. Sometimes we just need information on how to get it done.” Providing building blocks of wisdom—collected over the years from his various mentors including Will Smith and John Hope Bryant, and gained from business and personal experiences—Tyrese guides you toward rebuilding your life and achieving your mission. Emphasizing the importance of maintaining a positive spirit and staying open to all possibilities, Tyrese provides his personal roadmap that will lead you on the way to becoming the master of your environment. Brutally honest and bold in his personal revelations, Tyrese takes you on a journey of how he got out of his own way while encouraging you to do the same.

Some of Tyrese’s question-based chapters include: 
How Much Do You Love Yourself? 
Are You the Master of Your Environment? 
Who Are Your Five People? 
Why Do Men (and Some Women) Cheat? 
Do I Love You More that I Know You? 
What is Your Purpose?

Insightful, inspiring, and full of infectious positive energy, "How to Get Out of Your Own Way" will help you reprogram your mind and focus to achieve the life you always imagined for yourself. 

Tyrese Gibson—known to his legions of fans as “Tyrese”—is an American multi-media entertainer who has been hugely successful as a multi-platinum and Grammy-nominated R&B singer, songwriter, rapper, actor, and fashion model. Born and raised in the gritty South Central L.A. section of Watts, Tyrese was discovered at the age of fourteen when he won a local talent show. His performance in a 1995 Coke commercial, singing the phrase “Always Coca-Cola,” led to worldwide recognition and a longstanding music career. After releasing several award-winning albums, he transitioned into films, first with John Singleton’s critically acclaimed Baby Boy, followed by some of Hollywood’s biggest movies, including 2 Fast 2 Furious, Four Brothers and Michael Bay's Transformers. Tyrese created the bestselling comic book Mayhem and produced the television show First In. He is currently working on his sixth studio album and can be seen next in the upcoming mega-franchise films, Fast Five and Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon.

This Is Crazy...

It's ya man Tyrese...

At your request I wanted to send some more "Love" and a few new things to "Consider."

I used to write these all the time and decided to go easy cause just maybe what I write is waaay too positive for some. Let me go ahead and apologize to you in advance. I don't have any rumors, drama, or any kind of Hollywood or music inside scoop. I'm not trying to sell you anything, nor is this an invite to a party. It's a message that has REALLY changed my life that I wanted to share it with you.. So stay with me I'm going somewhere..

I want you to really sit on this for a second..

My approach to life has been... "I SEE the invisible, I HEAR in silence, I CLIMB invisible stairs, it's called having faith in God with no points of reference."

What is it with people that come up with these 5 or 10 year plans?

My mentor John Bryant once said to me, "If you wanna make God LAUGH tell HIM YOUR plan" (This is not to discourage anyone from creating goals). But consider this... if I had thought for 1 second when I was 16 years old that from getting on a bus to sing abut Coca Cola in a 30 second commercial (smile) it would have led to over 15 years of show business, and all the MANY amazing things that I've done, been exposed to and powerful people I've met and worked with, no one in the WORLD could have told me ANY of this was gonna happen.. My faith in God with NO point of reference ORDERED my steps and his blessings were REVEALED to me along the way.

People are starting to get lazy with their relationship with God.. Of course I believe in PRAYER, etc., etc., etc... But I also believe that after you're done PRAYING (and "Begging while
Praying" for some folks out there) you have to get up off of your knees and get out there and EXECUTE.. Michael Jordan said it best.. "You can't get POINTS TODAY for YESTERDAYS game" This has been my approach to my success.. I'm not the wealthiest guy in your inbox, nor am I the biggest star in the world.. But my grind is that of a man who has yet to accomplish ANYTHING..

I better wrap this up right?.. I'm getting long winded.. Ok.. ok.. Here we go.!

If this post finds you laying in bed... Ask yourself... Did you REALLY maximize your day with EVERY possible thing you could have done to move your life FORWARD??? Are there more calls you COULD have made to get things in motion?

Consider that because you may have more money than ALL your friends and family you've gotten LAZY and don't really feel like you have to work AS hard as you did when you first got it poppin!!! But, do you REALLY think you made it?? Are you REALLY done?? Do you really believe "Prayers without Execution" is gonna lead to ANY of your plans or goals coming to life??

When you get this message, know this it was no accident that you made it to the bottom of this post. This is AMERICA, people are literally putting their LIVES on the line to be in this great country of ours and for you to be so damn LAZY and NOT trying to take advantage of these blessings that are right in front of you, is just NOT IT..!! I believe that "Every blessing taken for granted becomes a curse." Stop going to parties and shit for photo ops, shaking hands and going home with NOTHING. Have a plan. Find out who's gonna be at these events and DECIDE what you're gonna talk to them about.. MAXIMIZE, EXECUTE, MAXIMIZE...

Listen, I have waaay more to say on this topic but I will end it here.. You know who you are...

Think for one-second, how is it that YOU know the amount of people you know, if you wasn't supposed to figure out SOMETHING that you can do to SHIFT this world.

Will Smith once said something to the affect of.. "Ideas are physical, if they stay in your MIND, you're robbing the world of experiencing them."

Nothing but love. I say this with all my heart. I wish nothing but success over your life. I pray that God's blessings rain FAVOR over you and your family. And as you receive this e-mail I hope that little negative voice or the spirit of "Self Sabotage and Self Defeat" doesn't
step in to try and TALK you out of changing the world..

My last and final 2 quotes..

"Geniuses must never die, the PROGRESS of MANKIND depends on us"
-Salvador Dali-

"You can NEVER take a break from GREATNESS" -Quincy Jones-

God Bless you..
Tyrese Gibson

This is your man, Tyrese. I am excited to announce that I will be holding a contest where I will pick 14 lucky ladies to treat to a massage, manicure, pedicure and other surprises on Valentine's Day. Are you ready for this?

Here are the rules:

Email me a one page letter as to why you deserve to be the lucky pampered lady and attach a photo of you and your child (or children). I want to read your passion and desire for this, but don't make it too wordy or you'll put me to sleep. LOL!!! Also, I get a lot of letters and messages from my fans about how my tweets have motivated them in some way or another, but I'm curious as to how I have inspired YOU. What adjustments have you made in your life that you are most proud of? Which of my tweets have had a great impact and how have you been able to apply that to your life?

Send it to and I will personally read every email to me and then decide who my 14 lucky single Valentine mothers are! And yes, you must be single mothers. I know what you single fathers are thinking, "What about me?" Right?? Although I do salute all the amazing fathers out there, this Valentine's Day is about the ladies. So let's all be gentlemen about this and let the females enjoy their day!!

The spa where you'll be getting your treatments done is located in Los Angeles. So please know that the winners are responsible for their own travel and expenses to and from the spa. The location and times will be given to the winners. Remember, this day is about you! Arrange a babysitter for the children so you can get your well-deserved day of leisure! I love you all, and can't wait to pamper the lucky ladies.

Deadline is Friday, February 12, 2010 at 12PM.

*For the winners, if for whatever reason you cannot make it, please give me at least a 24 hour notice with a doctor's note!! LOL! (I'm just playin)

Peace out!!
