Tribute To A One-Legged Badass

Back in 2013 my YouTube popularity had just begun to rise after creating videos for over 6 years. As a way to show my appreciation to all of my new subscribers I created a contest and giveaway for people who sent me their most inspirational transformation story. I received tons of amazing videos from people all over the world, but …

The Biggest Challenge For Millennials

Back when I was making daily “Yo Elliott” videos on YouTube, I would receive thousands of questions every single month. Most of my audience is between 16 and 30, so I got a lot of questions from Millennials. A staggering number of those questions went something like this: “Elliott, I feel depressed”. “Elliott, I don’t know what my passion is” …

How to Heal Your Childhood Wounds

They say that men fall in love with a woman who is like their mother, and vice versa for the ladies. This is an example of your childhood having a significant impact on your life today. However, let’s take this idea much deeper. What if you’re taking actions to this day, based on emotional wounds you received as a child? …

The White Knights & Dark Wizards of Fitness

Later this month I’ll be giving my most important speech of recent times at The Fitness Business Summit. The website in the link above shows the title of the speech I was going to give at first, but it’s no longer correct. I’ve changed my mind. Instead I am giving a talk that captures the essence of everything I’ve learned about leadership in my …

The New “Selfie Strength” Movement

It’s clear that we live in the most me-centric time and culture ever recorded. Today everyone is their own “celebrity”. Every time you take a selfie, your celebrating your self. Every social media post… Every glance in the mirror… Every mention of your accomplishments, your new toy or what you ate today… is a celebration of YOU. I totally get …

Hot Air or Hot Shit? (business ideas that stink so good)

Have you ever wanted to turn your passion into a business and live life on your own terms? That’s good, REAL good. But first we’ve got to evaluate if your idea is full hot air (all talk and not practical) or hot shit (dope, lit… awesome).   Last time I was in London my friend Brian Rose interviewed me on …

My major failure followed by biggest success

Welcome, welcome, welcome! Its been a bit since I’ve spilled all my thoughts, events and experiences out on my blog. This is LONG overdue. I think the best way for us to catch up with one another would be if I shared a timeline dating back to a major life event I experienced on October 29th (about four months ago). …

The Ills of Un-Groundedness

In April of last year I got rid of almost 90% of the books in my library. Why? Because I felt like it. And as you’ll see in a moment, I trust my feelings. So when my gut, heart, or that grounded voice in my head asks me to take action… I don’t question it, I just do it. Anyway, you might …

NEWS: Kanye West’s Spiritual War (my two cents)

Last night one of my closest friends sent me an article he thought I’d like. It was titled: “Inside Kanye West’s Breakdown: Rapper Feels Like ‘He’s Under Spiritual Attack” My friend was right… I liked the article for a number of good reasons. #1 – I like Kanye’s music. Kanye’s first few albums featured some mainstream hits.  They were songs that most people tap their …
