Truth be told, Arnold Schwarzenegger became famous because of his muscles and his movies, and with three boys in the house we sure watched a lot of those. However, it’s not so much the muscles or the movies that impressed me about the man, but rather his immense wisdom. It’s no surprise that he knows the secrets to success.
I know people always make fun of his accent, because after all these years that he has been living in the United States it is still very strong. But behind that heavy Austrian accent is a very smart man, and a very successful man. Not only in the world of sports or Hollywood but also in business and politics.
So I think you would agree with me when I say, when Arnold Schwarzenegger shares his secrets to success he speaks with authority.
While scouring YouTube for inspirational and motivational videos the other day I came across Arnold’s “Six Secrets to Success Speech.” In it he shares 6 rules that when followed will lead to success. They are very simple, to the point, and I’m sure you’ve heard them before.
Without further ado here they are…
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Six Secrets to Success
1. Trust Yourself!
2. Break Some Rules!
3. Don’t Be Afraid to Fail!
4. Don’t Listen to Naysayers!
5. Work Your Butt Off!
6. Give Something Back!
I encourage you to watch this short 4 minute video and listen to what Arnold has to say in detail about each and every one of these secrets to success.
Was I correct in assuming that you have heard all this before?
Well, all this wisdom that was just shared with you doesn’t do you any good if you don’t act on it. One of my favorite quotes about taking action is this one by Mark Twain….
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things
that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
You only have ONE life to live. So listen to the little voice inside of you and trust your gut. If you want something go after it.
As Arnold says…”None of these rules work unless you do.” Take his six secrets to success to heart, work your butt off and you surely will see results.
To Your Massive Success!
