The Elite Mentality

The Elite Mentality is a set of principles, characteristics and practical guidelines.

A mindset which allows you to achieve personal success and happiness by taking an alternative perspective.

We deliver the hard-hitting truths. The Elite Mentality isn't for everyone, it might not be for you.

The Complete Guide:

Authority - Without a level of authority, you will not be able to deliver the control needed to manage challenging situations.

This could be in a social environment, at work or in business.

You do not need to be an arrogant individual, but an element of authority is required to display that you have the presence to get something done.

Confidence - When you are feeling confident, you release the best version of yourself.

Having the confidence to speak and present yourself clearly is an effective tool and gives people a positive perception of you.

The Elite Mentality expresses confidence by knowing that you are happy and on your own pathway to success. 

Be proud of who you are and what you represent.

Discipline - If you can maintain a strong level of discipline through different aspects of your life, then you are going to win.

Making sacrifices is not easy but is required in order to achieve your goals and get to where you want to be. 

This relates to financial savings, gym progress or any long-term ambition which contributes to your overall happiness. 

A well-focussed mindset can remain disciplined when temptation exists and it will ultimately reveal where your priorities really are. 

Therefore, how badly do you want it?

Consistency - Being consistent is so important in anything you do. 

Stop looking at small samples for an answer. They are short-term and misleading.

If you commit to something, follow through with what you said by performing realistic actions in a comfortable routine.

Creating sustainability is the fundamental key to long-term success

Patience - You must always intend to act fast but be patient in terms of understanding how long good things take to develop. 

Be realistic with your time frame, because nothing truly special happens overnight.

However, be aware to not misinterpret your own patience as complacency.

Invest and trust in the structure of your process. 

Creativity - Life is a blank canvas and a completely free platform for you to showcase your personality, talent and ideas. 

Be creative, do your thing, express yourself and succeed in any direction. 

There are no limitations or rules - only artificial ones created by mainstream society influencing your own mindset.

Take Responsibility - If you want something doing properly, take responsibility so that everything is on you.

Being accountable is the ideal situation. Because with responsibility comes freedom and control. 

When you take responsibility it removes the complacent mindset of relying on others and being protected. 

If there's no one else to blame, you have to react and learn to find a way to deliver.

Energy - A positive, energetic vibe represents the Elite way of life. 

Wake up early, drink coffee, energise the day and get shit done.

Your body should source natural energy from the motivation of your ambitions.

Wake up with the thoughts of daily progress towards your goals and doing what makes you happy.

Vision - Vision is a huge aspect of the Elite Mentality.

Safety and complacency are not an option. Widen your viewpoint, see things from alternative angles.

Do not conform to normality because others aren't seeing it.

Enjoyment - Working hard is important but The Elite Mentality endorses fun and enjoyment.

Find what you love and do more of it.

Your life should be fun and this should overlap in and out of work. 

If you do not enjoy it, change it - or start building towards doing so.

Setting Goals - Set yourself goals frequently and document them in your own way for reference.

Smaller, shorter-term goals alongside larger, more ambitious ones. 

Until you identify clearly what you want and give yourself direction, you cannot progress smoothly.

Health - Look after yourself by eating well and exercising to a practical extent.

Release the natural endorphins and you will feel more confident and energetic.

Influence - Take inspiration from others who are offering value, insight, style, wisdom and logic. 

Adapt their positive aspects for yourself, in your own way. 

Offer others your thoughts and experiences.

Give them the opportunity to see you as a positive influence by your direction, independence and lifestyle.

Hard Work - We hear this a lot. But we are not referring to a cliché. 

This is pure, unattractive graft, notable sacrifice and relentless effort to maximise the potential of the situation.

Because the hardest things in life are done the least, but provide the most. 

The results of your actions will give you the platform where you will have the freedom to decide what you want to do in life. 

This brings a level of genuine happiness which cannot be beaten.

Learning - Try and learn from every experience which you have and every person that you meet. 

There is value to be taken from both your mistakes and wiser choices.

It is also never too late to learn something new. Studying is amazing, knowledge is powerful. It opens doors to greater things.

Stop Complaining - People love to complain because it’s easy. Executing to fix those problems, on the other hand, is hard.

When you stop complaining about the way you want it to be and start adjusting to the way it actually is, you will start to see results and progression.

Why are you wasting time and energy moaning about irrelevant and meaningless dumb shit which you can't change?

Motivation - If you are struggling to find motivation, you need figure out what it is which is preventing this.  

Consider your own environment and removing the negative or toxic energy which exists.

Set challenges guided by your passion and interests which encourage you to leave your comfort zone and trigger exciting experiences.

New Opportunities - Being open to new opportunities is a crucial element of The Elite Lifestyle.

Meeting new people and trying different things leads to amazing developments which you might never have been aware of. 

Never leave the door open to regret.

Positivity - Negativity is a disease which restricts people from an Elite perspective.

Bad shit happens. But your optimism is the greatest tool to overcome the issue.

Teach yourself to block your own negative thoughts and transition them to identify the positive underlying factors.

There is always a positive outcome, you just have to want to find it.

Gratitude - Sometimes it's hard to accept but the world does not owe you anything.

If you are reading this post, you have no reason not to be thankful and appreciate the opportunity you have to make an impact and do what you love.

Travelling - Broaden your horizons and see different locations.

Travel with work and travel with friends. But also travel alone, so you can do things your own way.

You don't need to be content with your current location. Plan trips regularly and attempt to visit new places each time so you can discover which cultures and lifestyles appeal to you.

Organisation - Preparation is the key to elevation. Things will always go better when planned out and thought through.  

Meticulous planning and attention to detail are what separates The Elite Mentality from the rest.

Don't be a calendar-Nazi but get your shit together. 

Partying - When it is time to party, relax, party hard and let yourself go.

Partying can lead to some of the best nights of your life and there is nothing like the feeling of celebrating and having a good time with your friends and family. 

Productivity - Be productive: Every. Single. Day.

Even on some days where you are tired or chilling - find a productive, low-key angle to advance your project or well-being.

Your future-self will say thanks. 

No Excuses - Once you have created a mindset where you believe that any excuse is a failure, then you are naturally going to adapt, learn, progress and win.

Deal in practicality, honesty and solutions. There are no excuses. Because what's the alternative? 

Slum Mentality -  The mindset of pure tunnel vision focus, where there is no distraction or alternative but to slog and enter a period of social hibernation.

Applying this in times of need where you have to knuckle down and get things done for a temporary period.

It can often be quite therapeutic and refreshing to distance yourself from everything once in a while.

But only the deepest of determinations can switch into this mode, and successful execution will lead to Elite results longer-term.  

Take Risks - Nobody achieved anything notable without taking risks. So be brave and follow your instincts. 

There is always something to fall back on.

Risks are the tools which lead to significant change and that breakthrough moment which you need.

Style - Take pride in your appearance.

That doesn't mean an expensive taste or designer brands.

It means having your own identity which stands out and feels right. 

Make Mistakes - Making mistakes is part of the process.

If you are making mistakes then it is evidence that you are pushing the boundaries, learning and living life. 

Fuck up and make as many mistakes as possible whilst you are young. It is the only way you are going to evolve. 

Loyalty - Remaining truly loyal is an Elite and underrated asset.

It ultimately represents your level of character and quality of personality.

Loyalty will earn yourself respect. This sets the foundation allowing you to build better relationships and be seen as a decent individual.  

Time-Keeping -
 Nobody likes people who struggle to manage their time.

It represents laziness and that what you are attending or who you are meeting is not a priority. 

In business and social life, timekeeping is an Elite factor, always noted by superiors.

You should look to be on point with this and send the correct message.

Versatility - Versatility is an Elite quality to possess.

Being capable of adapting to your surroundings and situation, not looking out of place among different types of demographics. 

It requires a broad-mind, good people skills and respect for other backgrounds.  

Self-Awareness - Self-awareness is a harsh and powerful thing. But these are hard-hitting truths.

Just because your Mum said it's good, doesn't mean it actually is. 

Equally, if she says you're not good enough, that is not conclusive.

You have to find out for yourself, who you are, what you are good at and what your ceiling is.

There is nothing wrong with belief, but do not allow it to cloud your judgement.

Be honest with your self-assessment, identify your own weaknesses and you will find progression a lot more natural and comfortable.

Time-Management  - A never-ending and impossible balancing act.

Managing your work commitments, relationships, social life and family time. This can be like spinning plates at times, trying to ensure everybody is happy.

Understand what your prerequisites are and structure your own priorities.  Compromise is the key. 

Happiness - Ultimately, everybody has their own agenda. Their own thought process, ideas, dreams and ambitions. 

One person's happiness is the opposite to that of another. 

Therefore, discover what is your own source of happiness - family, career, money, attention, success, freedom, love or a particular interest.

You will know when you find what makes you happy. Because you won't care about what anybody else thinks.
