#GetElevated. What does this hashtag we use in every single post even mean? Our brand is build on the notion that we want all of our followers to Elevate their lifestyle. In short: we want to see you succeed more than anything.
Most of you right now are in college or fresh out, or maybe even have dropped out. Whatever your story is, there’s a reason you’re here. Maybe you’re new to the entrepreneur game and you have the next big idea that will change the world, but have no idea where to start. Maybe you’re a rising SoundCloud rapper set to best Drake, but can’t find any listeners. Or maybe you’re a basketball player looking to better yourself for tryouts coming up in a few months, but can’t seem to get your shot right.
It doesn’t matter if you have the next big idea or are the best player on the team; if you don’t execute the action, you’re going nowhere. There are people out there that have the power to change the world, yet can’t draw themselves to get off the couch and spend a few hours a night working. They try, fail, and give up. Life gets in the way (Trust us, we know), but if you really have a special talent that can better you and your family, then never get up.
Think about your mentors and how many times they may have failed. Walt Disney was fired from his first job because he was “uncreative.” Bill Gates’ first business was a failure. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team. And where would they be if they had just given up? Not in the history books, that’s for sure.
Now, here’s the catch: Don’t do it for the money. If you’re trying to scam people out of their hard earned money so you can go buy yourself a new Ferrari; quit trying, you’ve already failed. Your vision should be what drives you to continue working, the money comes later. Here at Elevated, we support the high schooler that stays up until 2 am working on his app that can possibly save lives. We support the baseball player who spends his nights hitting balls instead of hanging out with friends. We understand that the grind is tough, but trust us, it’s so worth it in the end. The moment you can take a deep breath, look around and say, “I made it.” That’s what you’re working for. Not the cars or the money, but to be free. To Elevate yourself above your problems. That’s what we support.
