3 Crucial Steps You Must Take to Create the Strongest Version of Yourself – Elliott Hulse

Published

on

Legendary Elliott Hulse

Welcome once more to the “How to Be a Grownup Podcast Breakdown”!  My name is Erik Andress and I am the host of this show.  Today, I am humbled and grateful to bring you the words and wisdom of Youtube sensation and spiritual explorer Elliott Hulse!  He is a walking testament to what can be possible when you align with your purpose in this universe and grind hard to find the success that you deserve!

Check out this podcast interview with Elliott to learn all his tips, tricks, and techniques that he wants you to know to live a empowered life:


In this podcast, Elliott shares powerful insight on how his past experiences and the adversity he has overcome has given him amazing insight that allows him to bring holistic, vital information to the millions of people that follow his career.

While there were a lot of gems this inspiring entrepreneur dropped, here are the the three most important ways Elliott believes that you can do to dramatically increase the quality of your life:

1. Understand that purposeful adversity and suffering leads to greatness

Part of the human experience is pain.  Don’t let anybody tell you differently.  Anything that is worth doing in life will be challenging.  Building, maintaining, and sustaining a business is not for the faint of heart.  Developing a deep and loving relationship with a significant other that will stand by your side in the good times and the bad is a journey of personal growth for both partners.  However, so many of us don’t give ourselves the tools to deal with these burdens or roadblocks before they happen.  We allow ourselves to flounder and fail in the face of challenges, because we haven’t practiced being resilient.  

You have the chance to change that today.  You have the chance in this twenty four hour period, to give yourself the gift of GRIT and MENTAL TOUGHNESS.  Whether you choose to lift weights like Elliot or push yourself by reading a book a day like Tai Lopez, developing that internal sense of resilience will help you to deal with the challenges of everyday life much more easily.  Get up off your couch and take on the Spartan Race, see how much you can dead-lift, push yourself to jog a little bit further, pick up a book that seems like it might be beyond your scope of understanding and know that you will better your life for it!

“When you participate in purposeful suffering, your happiness level actually rises.” – Joe De Sena

2. Realize that your past mistakes cannot dictate the quality of your future

Don’t let other people’s perception of you be the excuse that you use to avoid going for your dreams.  As Elliott and I spoke about in the interview, he CHOSE to break out of the negative path that he was walking on.  Empower yourself to believe that you are capable of this as well.  Allow this paragraph to act as your permission slip to let go of the story that you believe was written for you, and to start to pen a new one for yourself.  

Give yourself permission to believe that you are not the negative labels that your educators placed upon you.  Give yourself permission to believe that friends and family that doubt your dream, just can’t see the heights that you are capable of reaching.  GIve yourself permission to believe that any mistakes that you have made in your past, were made by an entirely different person.  Those mistakes were made by a person full of uncertainty, doubt, regret, and devoid of purposeful direction.  Give yourself permission to believe that greatness and power are there inside you, just waiting for you to unlock the potential that you have always had!

The only way to get out of mediocrity is to keep shooting for excellence. Eric Thomas

3. Recognize that patience and persistence are the key ingredients to lasting success

In the social media world that we have been born and bred in, it becomes very easy to believe that success came overnight for so many of the flashy and beautiful individuals that you see on the Instagram recommend page.  Nothing in life that is worthwhile comes easily.  You want to be successful as a business owner or an entrepreneur?  Patience and persistence are the answer.  Stop reading books, stop watching Gary Vaynerchuk videos and start to put the work in while understanding that it will be a long trek towards lasting success.  Do you want to have a meaningful and deep relationship with a partner that makes your life better? You need to get out there, put yourself in positions where you could meet that person, and bring your best self to every interaction that you have with them.  When things get tough, when you argue or fight, push yourself to see the long term as opposed to the conflict in the moment.  

There is no debate, success is persistence and patience.  Challenges are an inevitable part of your journey towards the top.  You will fail.  You will stumble.  Onlookers might mock you or try to tear down your dreams.  You will fall down and get bloodied, bruised, and broken.  However, those that make their lasting mark on this world are the ones that choose to say that, “My obstacles don’t define me, my goals do.”

“You are not patient enough.  Your lack of patience is killing you.” – Gary Vaynerchuk

Motivation

Whenever I Am Fearful Of What People Think, I Do This.

Published

on

I’ve had some days recently where I’ve been plagued with that question “What will people think?”

“If I say that, will people hate it and could it ruin my career?”
‘If I say the truth and people dislike it, could that ruin an upcoming opportunity?”
‘If they don’t like it, will I ever get another chance?

Whenever I find myself becoming fearful of people’s opinions, I do this:

 

I compare their opinion to my mortality.

This is the main hack so let’s start with this. Whenever I find myself worrying about what people think and how it may affect my success, I remember that in the scheme of things I am only on this Earth for a short amount of time.

Anything that I say will likely be forgotten pretty quickly. People are so caught up in all the troubles of their own life that they don’t have space in their mind to remember all of my flaws and silly moments. So if people are highly unlikely to remember, then who cares what people think?

Comparing opinions to your own mortality is a fantastic way to get a reality check. This way of thinking always gets me out of my head. Death is a good motivator that will make you take action and not get caught up in your head trying to win a war against opinions.

 

I’d rather try for greatness than never know because of fear.

Being paralyzed by people’s opinions stops you from ever reaching your full potential. You end up second-guessing yourself and not taking certain actions out of fear for what people may think. You can’t enter their mind and steal their thoughts (not yet, anyway) so you’ll never know for sure.

Maybe people love what you said. Maybe what you hypothesize they’re thinking is wrong. So the truth is you’ll never know for sure.

“What I do know for sure is that greatness is within all of us and it can only be unleashed when you stop giving an F”

Greatness is achieved when you say what you think, you take vulnerable actions, you’re authentic and most of all, you don’t hold back. People’s opinions are holding you back and they don’t matter. What matters is your opinion of yourself.

 

What matters is you tried.

And your critics probably didn’t. By not being held back by opinions you end up trying things that you’d normally not do. Here are some of my own examples:

  • I went to a high interval training workout class. Normally I wouldn’t because I’m currently unfit, but because I don’t care what people think, I did it anyway and loved it.
  • I entered a public speaking competition and won against very tough competition. Normally I wouldn’t but I told myself that I can say cool stuff too.
  • I took a long plane trip overseas. Normally I wouldn’t because I have a fear of flying but because I’ve now flown enough times, flying is actually fun.
  • I started this whole blogging thing. Normally I wouldn’t of because I used to hate writing and found it dead boring. I thought people would think what I had to say was dumb. Then I discovered my passion for blogging and now it’s what I’m known for by millions of people

How much success are you leaving on the table by being shackled down with the opinions of others? Just do what you love and if people hate it then screw them. They’re obviously not your target audience or don’t get your unique talent. Giving it a go will show you more than doing nothing.

 

I think about not living my dream life.

If people’s horrible opinions of you are weighing you down, then try this reverse hack: Think about what would happen if you didn’t live your dream.

Whenever I second guess myself about giving a talk, I think about what would happen if I never discovered this whole inspiring others gift that I had secretly hidden inside of me.

When you weigh up in your head the difference between people’s thoughts of you, and living your dream life, you’ll find your mind always pushing towards the later. Use this super-sized hack to destroy your fear of opinions.

 

I remind myself of what the great’s do.

If fear of public reticule is holding me back, I think in my mind about what the greats would do. Would Steve Jobs let someone tell him that his phone needs more buttons?

“Would Martin Luther King let someone tell him that black people’s rights don’t matter and to stay at home today by the warm fire? Not in a million, trillion years”

So if the greats wouldn’t allow opinions to stop them in their tracks, why the heck would you?

 

I think of what I’m doing in comparison to the world.

An excellent way to put your actions and the opinions about them into perspective is to compare what you’re doing with the world. If you say something stupid in front of your co-workers, in the scheme of things, does that one event change the rest of the world?

Does your little mistake really matter compared with the billions of other mistakes that are happening at the same moment? Probably not.
