Contemplate on the Tree of Woe or Listen to Arnold

I didn’t want just to be a bodybuilding champion; I wanted to be the best bodybuilder of all times.  Dig deep down and ask yourselves: “Who do you want to be?  Not what, but who” I’m talking about figuring out for yourselves, what makes you happy. You have to think outside the box. That is what I believe, after all, what is the point of being on this earth if all you want to do is be liked by everyone and avoid trouble.

We have so many rules in life about everything. I say, break the rules, not the law, but break the rules. I remember that after I was finished with my bodybuilding career, I wanted to get into acting. I wanted to be a star in films.  Everyone at the same mind “It can’t be done.  Just look at your body. You have this huge monstrous body, overly developed. It doesn’t fit into the movies.” But you know, I didn’t listened to all this, this was their rules. I was convinced that I could do it.  Then I got the big break in “Conan the Barbarian”

Trust yourself, no matter how or what, anyone else thinks. And there the directors said, “If we didn’t have Arnold  Schwarzenegger, we would have to build one.” Then, when I did “The Terminator” “ll be back”, one of the most famous lines in the movie history. All because of my crazy accent.

It just shows that you should never listen to you can’t do something. Don’t be afraid to fail. Anything I ever attempted, I was always willing to fail. Don’t be afraid of making decisions. You can’t be paralyzed by fear of failure or you will never push yourself. You keep pushing because you believe in yourself and your vision and you know that is the right thing to do.  Success will come so don’t be afraid to fail.

How many times have you heard: “You can’t do this, you can’t do that. That it has never been done before” so pay no attention to the people that say it can’t be done. If I would have listened to the naysayers I’d still be in the Austrian Alps yodeling. I would never have come to America. I always listened to myself say: “Yes, you can”

You never want to fail because you didn’t work hard enough. Work your butt off. I always believed leaving no stone unturned. No pain, no gain. When you are out there partying, horsing around. Someone out there at the same time is working hard. Someone is getting smarter and someone is winning  just remember that.

You can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.
