The internet life of John Cena is almost as fascinating as his hairstyle.
On Instagram he’s a mischievous prankster. On Twitter a wise sage. The latter is such that my boss here at the site once opined that Cena’s timeline is “basically a self help book at this point.”
Maybe it’s Geno who’s the wise sage, because The Hollywood Reporter today let the world know that John is turning his Twitter into not one, but two self-help books!
The actor will release two new books of uplifting and motivational quotes, The Hollywood Reporter can exclusively announce.
Messages featured in both books are inspired by and adapted from Cena’s Twitter feed, in which he shares heartening and boosting words of affirmations to his followers almost daily such as “Put more into making a change, not an excuse” and “Live grounded. Dream grand. Love gratefully. Never lose hope.”
“We all have a lot on our minds, especially now, given the current state of the world. Words of encouragement can help us stay motivated and focused on what’s really important, and I hope that both Do Your Best Every Day to Do Your Best Every Day and Be a Work in Progress will inspire kids and adults to be the best versions of themselves,” Cena said in a statement.
In Do Your Best Every Day to Do Your Best Every Day, Cena shares affirmations about growing up and encourages young readers to do their part in making the world a better place. In Be A Work in Progress, Cena pushes readers to embrace challenges and seize and make the best of opportunities. Ballantine describes the book as a “pick-me-up readers will turn to again and again to reap the benefit of his values.”
“John Cena has a great talent for connecting with and encouraging kids and adults alike,” says Mallory Loehr, executive vp and publisher of Random House Books for Young Readers Group. “These collections are a new way for him to encourage readers of all ages to celebrate their achievements and take time to become the best version of themselves—whatever that might be.”
The 16 time WWE World champ and star of the upcoming films Fast & Furious 9 and The Suicide Squad is already a bestselling author via his Elbow Grease children’s books. These new tomes, both set for release on April 6 of next year, will look to appeal to kids and adults.
Both will be illustrated, with art in Do Your Best Ever Day by Susanna Harrison, Valeria Petrone creating illustrations for Be A Work in Progress. The Hollywood Reporter exclusive has sample work from both artists.
