Arnold Schwarzenegger is an iconic man who has achieved incredible things in his life and is a hero to millions because of his attitude towards life!
The lessons you can learn from him and his work ethic can be applied to any area of your life you are trying to improve, whether you are trying to lose weight, build muscle, become successful at anything or have a big goal you want to accomplish, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s philosophy can help you.
I have personally had to endure both physical and mental challenges over the past few years, from a career change and retraining, to running a marathon and other physical tests. Many times have I turned to YouTube videos of Arnold Schwarzenegger, his motivational quotes and even his amazing book Total Recall and they have given me the boost I needed to keep going, and helped me maintain the winning attitude which is so important to achieve any goal no matter how big or small.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 6 Rules For Success:
- Trust Yourself
- Break The Rules
- Don’t Be Afraid To Fail
- Don’t Listen To The Naysayers
- Work Your Butt Off
- Give Something Back
These may be Arnie’s rules for success, but they can probably be applied to anyone who has achieved big things in their life. Anyone who has become successful at some point had to ignore the status quo and decide that they weren’t going to settle for an average life and try and please others. If you have a vision and a big goal you need to ignore people who say it can’t be done and trust your own gut.
Now you’ll achieve nothing in life if you don’t have a solid worth ethic, if you approach your goal with patience, perseverance and commitment then you’re going to increase the likelihood that you will hit your goal. Even if you fail to get to where you want to be, the fact you have worked so hard and raised your standards is only going to make you a better person and improve your position in life.
If you’re looking to conquer a goal, whether it becoming physically fit and losing weight, building muscle or starting a successful business it will take an attitude change first. If you want to achieve something, you first need to become that person who is capable of achieving big things which means building a solid foundation to build on. If you have good values, a solid work ethic and treat others well then you’re giving yourself a massive chance of success.
To finish off, here are some motivational quotes from Arnie that may inspire you to take that risk, work a little harder, and keep your standards high!
“The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That’s what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they’ll go through the pain no matter what happens.”
“I knew I was a winner back in the late sixties. I knew I was destined for great things. People will say that kind of thinking is totally immodest. I agree. Modesty is not a word that applies to me in any way. I hope it never will.”
“What we face may look insurmountable. But I learned something from all those years of training and competing. I learned something from all those sets and reps when I didn’t think I could lift another ounce of weight. What I learned is that we are always stronger than we know.”
“The resistance that you fight physically in the gym and the resistance that you fight in life can only build a strong character.”
“Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.”
“The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent.”
“The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else. I hate that.”
“For me life is continuously being hungry. The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer.”
