“James McCrae is the Eckhart Tolle of the Internet Generation.”

“Don’t read this book,” your Ego says. “Your life could change. And that scares me.”

Sometimes our worst failures lead to our greatest transformation.

In 2012, James McCrae left behind a comfortable life in Minnesota and a successful career in advertising to move to New York City to pursue his dreams of being a writer. Soon after he arrived, Hurricane Sandy ripped through the eastern seaboard. New York City was underwater, and James – already jobless and running out of money – was suddenly homeless. Taking refuge on the island of Culebra, James sat alone on Flamenco Beach while his greatest doubts and insecurities rose to the surface. What he discovered was his Ego, and it had a lot of sh#t to say.

This story of adventure and transformation reminds us that we all have two voices inside us – the Ego and the Higher Self. The Ego is our reactive, attached mind that tells us that we are victims of circumstance. The Higher Self is our source of intuition and imagination that reminds us that we are the creators of our reality. Sh#t Your Ego Says (Hay House) sheds light on the critical battle between these voices.

With arresting honesty and compelling prose, James has outlined practical strategies for overthrowing the Ego and reclaiming a life of creativity and freedom. Whether you are looking to achieve meaningful career success, improve your relationships, or unlock your imagination, this book provides a no-nonsense roadmap to living with purpose.

James McCrae is a strategist and author at the intersection of creativity and mindfulness. He works with people and organizations around the world to unlock creative potential and turn imagination into results. An avid supporter of basketball, burritos, and yoga, James lives in New York City.
