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.

  10. Hello, Tyrese and friends of your blog:) I look forward to reading your book!! i just ordered it today after seeing you on 106 and Park!! I would like a piece of advice on my situation. I have a wonderful and great guy who i love, kids together, 1 has special needs-Autism. but I've had the opportunity to experience being IN love, unfortunately with someone else. (btw, prior to the guy im with now) I finally have a chance to live in love with the other person, but i find myself resenting the guy im with. Its not his fault, and he dosent deserve this. But, i don't want to be a selfish mother and upset our kids in leaving him. I guess i've settled, perhaps due to my medical condition spinal stenosis and I dont know what to do. i pray your book will help me thru my own web of confusion. Any advice I welcome graciously. I feel so guilty for feeling this way... i can be reached @ chantey.hamm@my.atlanta.chefs.edu or chantey427@yahoo.com. Thank you soo much for taking the time to read this!!

  15. Hello Tyrese, I watched you on The Steve Harvey Project last night. When they announced that you had written a book I stopped what I doing to watch the interview. You said many things that confirmed to me that I have been on the right track(sometimes you have to hear someone else say it). I hope men will read your book, to enlightened and better themselves, I certainly will. We as a people have to keep educating ourselves spiritually to get where we need to be. I totally understand the 5 people rule, love it and I use it!

  18. I have been doing a lot of self reflection this past few months, due to the fact that I felt i had lost focus in what i was doing. However I had decided once and for all to focus and be determined to reach my goal. I notice I get fearful when I get close to achieving something there's other elements sent to throw me off track its mad! I do actually think to myself am i sabotaging my own efforts unwittingly?

  19. What a great book.I read it in 2 days. Between training, cooking, cleaning and driving the kids around, I couldn't put the book down. Great time for self reflection and self motivation towards positive changes in your life. Your book is straight forward.I'm a married, mother of 3. My husband have been married 10 years, and we decided to be baptized together 2 years ago. It has made a huge difference in our relationship and how we raise our kids. Your chapter on "the circle of 5", and "master of your environment" hit the nail on the head. I've had to let go of certain friendships b/c of negativity or misery loves company syndrome. So many opportunities have opened up since they were released from my environment, and my relationship has flourished. We still face spiritual challenges together, but know have a tighter circle of Godly, positive influence around us. Thank you for writing such a wonderful book on your journey and influences.

  26. I saw you on Monique's show last night. MY mother and I were watching it. Your interview was very captivating. I tell you what, it really made me think, Tyrese. I am looking forward to this next chapter in life that God is calling me too. I know that for years I have been needing to change my circle and never listened to my mother. I am 29 now and still have a lot to learn. It's different coming from one of my peers. I am glad that your mother is well now. That is such a blessing. I am glad that you are seeking therapy to get to the point you need to be, so God can fully use you. With you saying that, you have no idea how inspired people are by you. Thank you for your inspiration!! I am definitely getting your book!!

    God bless you and your child and your entire family.

  28. my circle of married girlfriends and I shake our heads at our husbands all the time, it's as if they are stuck in the 90's. I was explaining to one of the guys about how his loyalty should no longer be with his homey's or his cousins his loyalty should be with his wife and daughter.

    The next night my sister in law told me to turn to you on the Monique Show (she says you're really her man,lol) When you made the statement "Loyalty has an experation date" I lost my breath. My husband was walking in from mens class at that time & before he could get into the house I was screaming for him to come watch it, poor man thought there was something wrong with me. lol

    I'm so impressed with you and your honesty. I've always been a fan but now Mr. Gibson you've taken yourself to a whole new level and I love you for it. My husband, 16 year old son, my nephew, and knuckle head little brother will be getting your book!!

    I've always supported you for your talent, now I get the chance to support you for your integrity. Now that's awesome!!!

  30. Hi Tyrese,

    I have been a fan of yours every since "Baby Boy" my favorite movie! and it is a pleasure to buy your book. I just ordered it today. Being overseas, you don't hear of all the new things that's going on, but as soon as I found out about your book, I ordered it, and will post it on facebook to encourage my friends to do the same. I read others comments and the insert of your book, and I'm already excited and can't wait to read it. God is good, and I encourage you to keep striving to reach your destiny. So proud of your accomplishment!
    Always a fan; Felicia Stevenson!

  31. I found out about your book a few days ago when I told my sister-n-law about my new website. She asked if I read your book and I said not yet. She then said that you guys are doing similar things and it's great for society. After looking at your site, I do notice a lot of similarities in your book and my site. My site is called whats Yo Excuse because I'm trying to get adults to give back to society by sharing there excuses, mistakes and life experiences. I want people to stop blaming other people for there problems and takr action. With that, I want teenagers to continue pursuing there childhood dreams by not making the same mistakes and excuses that they read on my site. I post motivational real life articles 5 days a week and encourage all to read, comment and share there experiences. I will be reading your book in the next few days. I'm glad I found someone higher than me that is also spreading this message. It confirms that Iam doing the right thing. Following my dreams and passions. Thanks Tyrese.

  32. If only the people around me new the life i had to go through.It still haunts me into my adulthood and brings many stresses to my new life which no one understands. Its very hard to conquer them on my own but i try. this book was AMAZING! i never purchased a book in my life and somehow i bought this one and read it in 2 days! It made me feel real good about myself. Keeping it real~ there were only a few lines that i havent heard or said before, so alot was repeat.BUT reading them from someone else gave me a confidence to stand by those words. "i was like wow, im very intellegent". thank you tyrese! and god bless you!
