Six Rules of Arnold SCHWARZENEGGER (NB!!! COMMENTS WILL BE ADDED A BIT LATER)
Of course, people ask me all the time, they say to me: «what is the secret of success..»
The first rule is TRUST YOURSELF. But what is most important, is that you have to dig down, dig deep down, to ask yourself — who do you want to be, not what, but WHO?!
And I’m talking about not what your parents and teachers want you to be, but YOU !!!
I’m talking about figuring out for YOURSELVES what makes YOU happy, no matter how crazy it may sound to other people. So, rule number one is, of course, TRUST yourself no matter how or what anyone else thinks.
Rule #2 is : BREAK THE RULES , we have so many rules in life about everything, I say break the rules. Not law but break the rules . it is impossible to be a maverick or true original if you are too well bahaved and don’t want to break the rules. You have to think outside the box, that’s what i believe. After all, what is the point of being on this earth if all you want to do is to be liked by everyone and avoid trouble. The only way that I got anyplace was by breaking some of the rules.
which , of course, brings me to the rule number three: DON’T BE AFRAID TO FAIL! Anything I’ve ever attempted I was always willing to fail. You can’t always win, but don’t be afraid of making decisions,. You can’t be paralysed by fear of failure or you will never push yourself . You keep pushing because you believe in yourself and in your vision . And you know it si the right thing to do. and success will come, so don’t be afraid to fail.
which brings me to the rule number four: DON’T LISTEN TO THE NEYSAYERS. I mean, how many times have you heard that you can’t do this or can’t do that and it is never been done before? I love it when someone says, that no one has done it before , because then, when I do it, then it means that I’m the first that HAS DONE IT. So, pay no attention to the people that say it can’t be done. I always listen to myself and say, «yes, you can.»
And that brings me to the rule number five, which is the most important rule of all: WORK YOUR BUTT OFF !!!! I’ve always believed leaving no stone unturned
Mohammed Ali, one of my great heroes, had great line in the 70’s, when he was asked « How many sit-ups do you do?» He said, «I don’t count my sit-ups. i` only start counting when it starts hurting. Whe I feel pain, that’s whe I start counting, because that’s when it counts. That’s what makes you a champion. And that’s the way it is with everything. NO PAIN, NO GAIN. And let me tell you, it is important to hae fun in life, of course. But when you’re 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. but if you want to win, there is absolutely no way around of hard hard work. None of my rules, by the way, of success will work unless you do. I’ve always figured out that there is 24 hours a day. You sleep six hours and you have 18 hours left. I know there are some of you out there that say, «well, wait a minute, I sleep eight hours or nine hours.» well then just sleep faster, I would reccomend Just remember , you can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets. And that takes me to the rule number six : which is very important rule, IT’S ABOUT GIVING BACK. Whatever path you choose in your life you must always must find time to give something back . Give something back to your community, something back to your state or to your country. Let me tell you something, reaching out and helping people will bring you more satisfaction than anything else that you have ever done. Remember those six rules :
- TRUST YOURSELF
- BREAK SOME RULES
- DON’T BE AFRAID TO FAIL
- IGNORE THE NAYSAYERS
- WORK LIKE HELL
- GIVE SOMETHING BACK
