Who is Elliott Hulse and what is his special message?
People all over the world send questions to Elliott Hulse. Elliott then answers them in a special way, with a number of themes recurring: physical and spiritual health. Let’s take a look at what makes Elliott so special…
Let’s zoom in on one of his videos
Letter to Elliot Hulse: 18-year-old boy has lived in America since 1999 but was deported back to El Salvador in 2014 for doing criminal acts. He is devastated because his whole life is now falling apart and because he has let everyone down.
Hulse, the coach, says:
“This is the harsh reality, and receive it. Receive it without resistance. You did something, and this is the result. That’s how life works. Think that’s OK, take responsibility for that. Do not feel sorry for yourself, but rather feel strength for the fact that you are a creator of your life . You are a manifestor of circumstances.
However, there are unconscious undercurrents that cause you to do that, so we could discover what is happening inside you in your character, psychologically, spiritually. But take responsibility.
Don’t judge yourself. There are unconscious things that make choices for you and cause you to see those things. But get deported as a man. You have to stand on your own feet. You are 18 years old.
Many adults say, “What have you learned from your mistakes?” That’s a superficial question. You answer with: “I have learned not to sell drugs in front of the police. I have learned not to take weapons with me in certain places ”. Those are all things you done. What you have done is not what you have learned.
What you really need to learn is what your weaknesses are. Always look at character traits and virtues. Always look at who you are not and who you are. Because then you can work on it.
If you know that you have fear, find out very clearly what you are afraid of, why you are making choices based on that fear, and feel that fear. What scares you? Something scares you that makes you do all those bad things. You may fear the lack of safety and security, and you may believe that you do not have the skills or character to make money in a resourceful way.
That fear prevents you from taking a proper job, paying taxes and becoming a resourceful citizen.
It always comes down to your core values and your core virtues. Get in touch with your values, see which virtues you have not yet developed enough and build yourself from the inside out.
My take on what I’ve seen from Elliott Hulse
I think Hulse treats the 18 year old boy like an adult in his video and teaches him a hard lesson. I think that is very appropriate, but at the same time quite hard.
Hulse says that you should look to your own character traits, values and virtues for change. I personally find it difficult to change that because I think I could just change my behavior. If I think logically, I think that you can also fine-tune your behavior. That requires a lot of perseverance.
I feel it is slightly contradictory that you should not judge yourself for what you have done, but that at the same time you should take responsibility for your actions and accept the consequences. Both are correct, but it seems difficult to have to comply with both at the same time.
Elliott points to a deeper truth
I just think with my logical brain, but Elliott understands that the hard truth is a spiritual lesson.
In addition, I find a number of NLP Presuppositions in Elliott’s advice :
- This is a quote from the video: “You may fear the lack of safety and security, and you may believe that you do not have the skills or character to make money in a resourceful way. “That quote corresponds with the following principle of NLP:“ Every behavior has a positive intention for the person himself ”.
- This is a quote from the video: “However, there are unconscious undercurrents that cause you to do that, so we could discover what is happening inside you in your character, psychologically, spiritually. But take responsibility. ”That corresponds to the following principle of NLP:“ People have two levels of communication: A conscious and an unconscious level. ”
- If Hulse had said something along the lines of the NLP principle below, he could conclude his message in a positive way and to encourage the boy to rebuild his life positively in El Salvador. “Everyone has all the resources in them to achieve any desired change in them”
