I Hope I Screw This Up

How Falling In Love with Your Fears Can Change the World

I Hope I Screw This Up

A New York Times bestseller! In this irreverently funny, one-of-a-kind book, transformational comedian Kyle Cease shows you how to love failure and follow your heart, release the addictions of your mind, and live in a state of infinite possibility. If Eckhart Tolle and Jim Carrey had a baby, that baby would be Kyle Cease. After twenty-five years of achieving what he thought were his dreams of being a headlining touring comedian and actor, Kyle Cease suddenly discovered that the belief that “When something happens, I will be happy” is a complete lie. With nothing more than an intuition, he decided to quit his stand-up career at its peak, and now—as a transformational comedian, he brings his one-of-a-kind self-help wisdom to sold-out audiences in his Evolving Out Loud Live stage show. In I Hope I Screw This Up, he disarms readers as he leads them to their own personal breakthroughs, helping them to recognize that actual happiness and fulfillment is available to them—not in some distant future, but right now. As he has shown audiences all over the world, when you embrace your pain, fear, and vulnerability instead of pushing it away, you will discover an authentic creativity and power that is truly unstoppable. Using self-deprecating personal stories, hilarious observations on life, and poorly drawn illustrations, Kyle unravels the deepest issues standing between us and emotional freedom. From discovering the never-ending opportunities that come from playing—and going with whatever comes up in the moment—to learning to let go of what feels heavy in our lives, this book is a journey into the endless possibility that can appear if we just dare to let go of our fear of screwing up. This is not motivation. This is not inspiration. This is true transformation.

The Illusion of Money

Why Chasing Money Is Stopping You from Receiving It

The Illusion of Money

New York Times best-selling author and comedian-turned-motivational speaker, Kyle Cease, shows how your obsession with money is actually preventing you from living the life of your dreams. "I can't afford that." "Now's not the right time . . . I need to save up." "Quit my job? Are you nuts?!" Sound familiar? Money is one of the biggest excuses we make to not go after what we really want. Our fixation with money--the desire for more of it, and the fear of not having enough of it--is often really just a longing to feel safe. But this obsession with money is coming at a much bigger cost: our sanity, our creativity, our freedom, and our ability to step into our true power. This book is about eliminating the need to seek safety through the illusion of money, and learning to see ourselves for the perfection that we are--so that we can bring our gifts to the world in an authentic way, and allow ourselves to receive massive, true abundance as a result. Kyle Cease has heard excuses like the ones above countless times at his live events, and he has shown people how to completely break through them. In The Illusion of Money, he shares his own experiences as well as practical tools to help readers understand their ingrained beliefs and attachments to money, and how they can tap into our infinite assets and talents. "After 25 years as a successful comedian, actor, transformational speaker, author and junior-league amateur bowler, I've experienced many times how chasing money is not an effective way to create an abundant and fulfilling life. The most alive I've ever felt was after I left my comedy career at its peak to become a transformational speaker. I left tons of guaranteed money and so-called security for a complete unknown. It was terrifying--but what was on the other side of that terror was a completely different life that is not only more abundant financially, but has more freedom, more ease, more passion, more impact and more joy." -- Kyle Cease

The Inner World of a Suicidal Youth (revised edition)

What Every Parent and Health Professional Should Know

The Inner World of a Suicidal Youth (revised edition)

Suicide has been a public health crisis for at least the last two decades. When this book was first published in 2007, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), suicide was the third leading cause of death for youths ages 15 to 24, and the fourth leading cause of death for youths ages 10 to 14. Suicide rates have steadily increased so much that, since 2017, it is the second leading cause of death for youths in both age groups, 15-24, 10-14. The rate of suicide attempts has increased even more rapidly over the last two decades, by more than 400%. The U.S. data captured by the CDC is an unfortunate reflection of a global epidemic of suicide. As author Osborne explains, existing approaches to preventing youth suicide have had little impact on reducing the number of suicides and suicide attempts across America. While there are countries with suicide rates higher than the U.S., there are even more countries with rates that are lower. What can we, and should we, seek to learn from countries with much lower suicide rates than the U.S., countries like Barbados, Jamaica, Italy, Peru, and Panama? Like many youths, Electra is a well-loved, beautiful, highly intelligent teenager. By unveiling the private thoughts of a suicidal teenager in this unprecedented book, Osborne hopes that Electra’s diary, which spans 7 years from age 15 to 22, will provide an understanding of the adolescent mind that will spur more effective means to recognize, treat, and heal those at risk, and so vastly reduce suicide among our youth.
