Wise words from Arnold Schwarzenegger
Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of the world's most successful people; he has had huge success in five realms of activity: In sports, as a Movie star, in politics, as an author, and as a real estate investor.
He seems to know how to achieve goals.
I wrote the following to reflect Arnold's content and style. I hope you enjoy this....
"Always I have been a great believer in the Western philosophy of achieving, of climbing, of getting higher and higher to the top.
I have a philosophy I call Stay hungry. Staying hungry means; always being hungry for more. So whenever I achieve a goal, immediately after that, I ask myself, "What other goal can I set, to try to achieve?". That's what staying hungry is all about.
It's about living.
Not just existing.
The secret always is to make your mind work for you; not against you.
You have to know who you want to be: Not what, but WHO.
And you must believe in yourself. You must be willing to work your butt off, and you must be ready to sacrifice short term pleasures for your ultimate goal.
You must absolutely ignore the naysayers. All my life I have had people telling me, "Arnold, you are crazy. Nobody has ever done that. It's not possible!". At first, that bothered me, but soon I realised that these people meant only that it was not possible for them.
Their rules did not apply to me.
I was always ready to break the rules; not the law; The rules.
I decided early on, that I could do whatever I set my mind to do.
The mind is incredible, once you have gained mastery over it. With the right use of your mind, you can achieve anything. I mean anything.
I decided early on that I wanted to be the best at whatever I do. When I was a bodybuilder, I was the best bodybuilder. When I was an actor, I was the best actor, in that I made more money and sold more seats than anyone else. I was successful too in politics.
I always use the same methods that I learned in the gym: I decide first, what I want. I am honest about my strengths and my weak points. I work my butt off to eliminate my weak points, and I always expect to win.
I recommend you do the same things:
- Decide what you want:
- Be honest about where you need to improve;
- Work your butt off;
- Ignore the naysayers,
- Don't break the law, but dare to break a few rules.
- Believe in yourself.
- Expect to win."
