What’s going on?
As a way to bid the “Yo Elliott!” Q&A videos that I have been creating for the last few years good-bye… I am holding a contest for you to participate in.
How Do I participate?
Create a 3-4 minute “mash-up” video using any, and as many, of my videos from any of my 2 main YouTube channels. (you can find them here and here.). Then upload your unique video to YouTube for public viewership. Give the video your own title, but add [Best Of Yo Elliott] as a subtitle. Example – “Grow Stronger Now! [Best Of Yo Elliott]“
I will search [best of yo elliott] in YouTube, that is how I will find your video, so make sure you add this. I will then add your video to a playlist on my channel where we can all watch them. (also, feel free to post your video on my Facebook wall if you’d like… but this is not necessary for participation)
My team (friends and family) and I will watch all the videos and our personal favorites will be the winners — so be as creative as you possibly can, use music and all of your best editing skills if you have em’.
***ALL ENTRIES ARE DUE NO LATER THAN MARCH 12th*** videos uploaded after March 12th will not be counted. Winners will be announced on the following Monday.
What do I win?
GRAND PRIZE WINNER gets a brand new iPad Air. I will have it mailed to you directly from Apple. I also like to throw in a few surprise gifts, so you’ll be getting a ton of cool things that I personally choose
We will also choose a few runner-ups who will receive gifts too. And everyone who participates will be recognized.
By participating in this contest, you are also giving me permission to upload your video to my Strength Camp YouTube channel with a link back to your channel. This is a great way to build the subscribers and viewership of your own channel, an added benefit to participating!
Finally, I am eternally grateful to have you guys in my life. I love serving you with these videos, and I am excited to see how you might take my words and create a fun, interesting and educational video re-mix that we can share with hundred of thousands of people to support them in Growing Stronger!
Good luck, and thank you!
Last week one of our Strength Camp Challenge sponsors stopped by the gym bearing gifts of bodybuilding supplements, shaker bottles, t-shirts, etc.
Since right now the only supplement I am using is Living Fuel, I decided to create a fun contest to give away the valuable box of protein shakes to someone who might be able to use it… rather than letting the box collect dust in a closet at my gym.
Originally I was just going to give away this box to the Grand Prize winner, but after the amazing outpouring of love in the over 700 images you’ve created, I decided that a single box of supplements was just not enough.
So, I have decided to not only send the box of supplements to the grand prize winner… I am also sending a gift package including a canister of Living Fuel to all of the “runner ups” that myself, Colleen and my best friends personally chose.
Again, a HUGE thank you everyone who contributed to this contest and to everyone on the Journey of Becoming The Strongest Version Of Yourself. We are a small community with BIG intentions… and as each of us grow stronger we support others in finding and developing their own personal strength.
GRAND PRIZE WINNER:
I chose this one from @witnessmyfirstmarathon as the Grand Prize winner. It’s a great quote, and the design is clean. One of the main reason for the contest was to gather some quotes and images that could inspire ANYONE, whether they’ve heard of Elliott Hulse, or not. I call this universal sharability - This one has that quality.
Runner Ups (in no particular order)
Besides the fact that it strokes my ego, I love this one by @murtmakeithurt because the “King, Warrior, Magician, Lover” theme has been strong in my recent personal development and I have been speaking a lot about the idea of Masculine Archetype in some of my videos.
This one makes the list for the same reason as the grand prize winner. It is a good quote and image. Very creative work done by @farz93 – who by they way, makes some pretty dope memes. This is only one of several awesome ones he made.
I chose this by @kammarad because of how simple and strong the message is. If you are familiar with my story you can see how this image captures the essence of my personal evolution, service to the word and grand message about FOLLOWING YOUR HEART. If it weren’t for the criteria of “universal sharability” this one is my personal favorite.
I love this one from @dovydasmolina also due to the simplicity of the message and great picture. The only reason why this one did not get Grand Prize was because it looks almost like I’m saying “get” as in “understand” with my fingers pointing to my head, as opposed to “get” as in receive something. So, in a way… I even confused myself with this quote. But again, if you are familiar with me and my message, it should be clear what I am talking about
Finally, this image created by @thouzndthword joins our list due to thoughtfulness and creativity. The creator is obviously familiar with my love for the writers and poets of the Transcendentalist movement of America in the mid-late 1800′s. The movement was created and spread by men like Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman and of course Henry David Thoreau (my face is superimposed on his head below) who constantly preached SIMPLICITY in all things, and coined the term Civil Disobedience which inspired many of our greatest freedom fighters such as Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.
Once again, THANK YOU for participating. I will attempt to contact you each individually to get your mailing address and send you the prizes. If you don’t hear from my by the middle of next week just hit me up through the contact link on this blog.
To invite over 700 images with my face and sayings on it for the purpose of inspiring others might seem a little narcissistic or self-righteous, but I can assure you that nothing but humility coursed through my veins as I scrolled though all of these amazing images.
We are all in this together… and I am just grateful that my words though the videos I create, might serve as nourishment for you while on your personal journey of Growing Stronger.

On several occasions I have been accused of “sealing”
the interesting ideas and perspectives I share in my
videos, from other people.
Well, the sneering haters who propound such sentiments
…are 100% correct.
I steal ALL of my ideas from various resources, including
books, mentors, seminars, coaches and even my friends!
In fact, there are very few brand new ideas anywhere…
unless you’re a quantum physicist.
But even some of their discoveries can be found in the
ancient Hermetic texts from the 3rd Century AD.
I love filling my mind with perspectives and ideas that I
wouldn’t otherwise gain… if I didn’t steal them from
Even more, I love stealing these ideas and re-mixing them
with each other, AND my personal experiences. In fact, I
believe that this is the BEST method for joining the
“learn-ed class of folks”!
We live in greatest era of idea proliferation that has ever
existed. Heck, the mere fact that you can read this so-called
e-mail via the inter-net on your smart phone… is proof
The biggest problem we now have is… WHAT TO READ!?
Ideas influence your thoughts, thoughts influence your
attitude, your attitude shapes your activities… and your
life is built upon the activities you engage in!
So, what kind of ideas are you bringing into your head?
I can’t tell you what you should be reading or studying.
But what I can tell you is that whatever you are putting
in your mind right now, will bare the fruits of your future.
Will that fruit be sweet and juicy, or dry and rotten?
Anyway, in case you ever wonder what Elliott Hulse is
filling his mind with at the moment, you can always
take a peek at my reading list at the link below:
Also, if you wanna fill YOUR mind with my latest and
most interesting “re-mixed” ideas I’d invite you to join
me at either of the two live events I’m hosting in the
next few months.
You can learn more about those here:
See ya soon.
