Arnold Schwarzenegger Great Speech
I’m here to talk about success right the first rule of success is to have a vision you see if you don’t have a vision of where you go and if you do have a goal
Where you go you drift around and you never end up anywhere it’s like you can have the best ship in the world you can have the best airplane in the world if the pilot or the captain doesn’t know where to go it would just drift around they would not end up anywhere almost like in the wrong place so I was very fortunate did I stumble on my vision.
I mean as you know I was born in 1947 in Austria after the Second World War and I didn’t really like Austria when I grew up I couldn’t wait to get out of there I couldn’t see my self becoming a farmer or working in a factory or anything like that even though my parents wanted me to stay there and have a normal life my father wanted me to become a police officer like he was my mother wanted me just to stay there and marry a girl in the name of Heidi hopefully and have a bunch of kids and run around like the fun trap family in the sound of music but that was their vision, not mine.
My vision was totally different I felt that that was born for something special for something unique for something big do you know how great it felt that I knew where I was going imagine the majority of people don’t know where they’re going it’s when you have a goal when you have a vision everything becomes easy because remember that in America for instance when you study you will see the percentage of people did like their jobs74% hate their job in America .
Now this is not much different when you come to Europe the majority of people don’t like what they’re doing because they’re really not doing it because they didn’t have a goal and they’d followed this goal they’re just aimlessly drift around and then over sudden if there’s a job opening so they get their job because if the world but then when you grow it’s a chore its work it’s not fun so if you think about only a quarter of the people really enjoy.
What they’redoing in life that is unbelievable if you think about it so I felt so blessed that I knew what I was doing it’s like a medical students in studies and knows he wants to become a doctor you know where to go so I know where to go so people always ask me when they saw me in the gym in the pumping iron days you say why is it that you’re working out so hard five hours a day six hours a day and you have always a smile on your face the others are working out just as hard as you do and then look sour in the face why is that and they told people all the time is it because to meI am shooting for gold in front of Mr. Universe title so every rep that Ido gets me closer to accomplishing that goal to make this call this vision turn into reality every single set that I do every repetition every weight that the lift will get my step closer to turned his goal into reality so I couldn’t wait to do another 500 pound squat I couldn’t wait to another 500 pound bench press I couldn’t wait to do another 2,000 reps of sit-ups I couldn’t wait for the next exercise for the next half hour posting and all the kind of things that you have to do you’ll be a champion and with the age of 20with the age of 20 I went to London and I won the Mr. Universe contest as the youngest Mr. universe ever and it was because I had a goal.
So let me tell you something visualizing your goal and going after it makes it fun you got to have a purpose no matter what you do in life you got to have a purpose so that rule number one has a vision rule number two does not listen to the naysayers don’t listen to the naysayers everything I ever did the thing that they heard out of peoples mouths was that’s impossible that can’t be done so whenever someone said to me it can’t be done I heard it can be done when they say no I heard yes I mean they said it’s impossible I heard it is possible I’m a strong believer what.
said that “Everything is always impossible until someone does it well “
I’m gonna be the one that said to myself I’m gonna do it and I’m gonna show you to them maybe it has never been done before that’s perfectly fine with me but I am gonna do it and I did not listen to the naysayers next thing the third point that I’m gonna make to you is before we sit down with your gun and talk about the rest of the three is work your ass off there is no magic bill there is no magic out there you cannot get around you have to work and work and work and it drives me crazy when people say they don’t have enough time to go to the gym for 45minutes a day and work out or do something for 45 minutes to an hour they do improve if it is physically improving it is mentally to improve imagine you read one hour a day about history how much you will learn after 365 hours in one year.
Think about if you study about the history of musicians of composers how much you would know to imagine if you who work on the business and some business that you want to develop every day for an hour imagine how further along you will go and get so it drives me nuts because we have but people said we don’t have the time wehave 24 hours a day we sleep 6 hours a day so that gives you still 18 hours and there’s someone shaking the head out here in front to say probably I don’t sleep six hours I sleep eight hours right but just sleep faster so we have 18 hours a day the average person works around 8 to 10 hours so let’s assume it’s 10 hours so if you have 8 hours left then you travel aroundan hour a day maybe 2 hours a day so now you’ve still 6 hours left so what do you do with this 6 hours where do we the six hours then we eat a little bit and we schmooze a little bit talk a little bit the people in ordered stuff but you can see how much time is available if you organize your day so you got to work hard.
I mean let me tell you something when I went to America I went to college I went and worked out 5hours a day and I was working on construction because in those days in bodybuilding there was no money we didn’t I didn’t have the money for food supplements or anything so I had to go to work so we worked in construction I went to college I worked out in the gym and at night from 8 o’clock at night to12 mid night I went to acting class four times a week say I did all that there was not one single minute that I wasted I became very friendly with Muhammad Ali in the 70s Muhammad Ali worked his but off in a saw it first hand now remember that there was a sports rider that wasthere in the gym when he was working outand he was doing situps and they asked him how many sit-ups do you do and he said I don’t start counting until it hurts now think about that he doesn’t start counting his sit-ups and bill Davy feels pain that’s when he starts counting that is working hard and so you can’t get around the hard ware it doesn’t matter who it is so maverick.
I believe what Ted Turner said work like hell and advertise you get it to work like hell go to bed and early to rise work like hell and advertise so you work your ass off and then you let the world know about your work that’s what it is all about to let people know if you have a company if you have a movie if you do a sports work your ass off but then advertise and let everyone know I hate plan B and I tell you why because we have so many doubt ersas I’ve said earlier they eat the no sales we have so many of those people did say no and you can’t do it it’s impossible that is okay because we just turn off as I said earlier and B listenand be hear that now being a yes you can’t do it you can’t do it and all that so that that is possible to do that amongst all the negative people around you but when you start doubting yourself that’s very dangerous because now what you’re basically saying is is that if my plan doesn’t work I have a fall back plan have a plan B if that means that you start thinking about Plan B and every thought that you put into Plan B you’re taking away now that thought and that energy from plan an and it’s very important to understand that we function better.
If there is no safety net because Plan B becomes a safety net it says that if I fail thenfr and I get picked up and I have something else there that was they will protect me and that’s not good because people perform better when there is no safety net people perform better in sports and everything else if you don’t have a plan B to me it is very dangerous to have a plan B because you’re cutting yourself off from the chance of really succeeding and the reason one of the main reasons why people want to have a plan B is because they are worried about failing what is if I fail then I don’t have anything else well let me tell yous omething don’t be afraid of failing because there’s nothing wrong with failing you have to fail in order to climb that ladder there’s no one that doesn’t fail we all fail it’s okay what is not okay is that when you fail you stay down who ever stays down is a loser and winners will fail and get up fail and get up fail and get up you always get up that is a winner that is a winner hey we all lose you all have lost us this is okay and this is why I say don’t be worried about losing because when you’re afraid of losing then you get frozen you get stiff you’re not relaxed you got to be in order to perform well in anything if it’s in boxing or if it is on your job or with your thinking is only happening when you relax so relax it’s okay to fail let’s just go all out and give it everything that you got that’s what it is all about so don’t be afraid to fail this is one of my six rules to success you can only feel complete as a person if you think about what can you do for your fellow member around you that may be needs helpI felt like that everyone has a different motivation why you get in to that I was an immigrant going to America and I saw how America was the most generous country in the world I mean they opened up their arms to me they helped me they invited me for Thanks giving dinner the people they brought me the bodybuilders in the gym brought me plates to my apartment because I had no plates had no silver wareI had no bed where I had no pillows at no blanket I had no TV I had no radio I had nothing they brought it to my apartment they helped me that’s all that first hand this generosity in America in the city myself as an immigrant that is being embraced with open arms that I need to go and make sure that I give somethingback.
