Why You Need to Stop Saying What People Want to Hear

Kyle Cease has had a big impact on me, this video in particular. He blends comedy with personal development and is so fucking real and raw. He’s refreshing and captivating. He has a book out called I Hope I Screw This Up.

The first few chapters are like nothing I’ve ever read. This book feels like permission to wade through the uncomfortable, somewhat embarrassing, icky sticky darkness in search of your own truth and have it be ok to not know what you’re doing. Your willingness to dive into this gooey unknown is a step towards freedom and ultimately more joy in life. ~ Jade

Former standup comic turned transformation expert, Kyle Cease helps people evolve through ditching their “old story”. He started performing stand up comedy at the age of 12 and was headlining by the time he was 18 making him one of the youngest headlining acts in the country. He is the author of the bestselling book “I Hope I Screw This Up” and on this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu, you’re going to see how the story you tell yourself may be the wrong one.
