A 12min Video Of How Arnold Went From A Small Town Kid To Mr. Universe. Super Inspiring.

There’s no doubt that Arnold Schwarzenegger is an incredible success story.  The fact that he was an immigrant from Austria and pursued his dream of coming to America to become the worlds greatest bodybuilder, the highest paid actor, and eventually Governor of California is very inspiring.

The Mindset Of A Champion

Schwarzenegger claims that it’s his mindset that has created all of the success in his life.  It’s his mind that would allow him to get up early and stay up late, to push beyond failure and his current limitations, and to visualize what he dreamed of and make it happen.  I’ve learned that your mind is your most powerful tool in manifesting the life you want.

“I would always ask people, “Why do you want to be a champion?” and people would say, “I want to get more muscular and maybe enter a bodybuilding contest”, and I would say, “Sit down.  If you think this way, you’re going to be a loser.  There’s no maybe.  You have to get up and say ‘I want to be a champion, and I’ll do whatever it takes’”.

Arnold has a “whatever-it-takes” mentality that has helped him succeed.  As mentioned earlier, it’s his supreme confidence and determination that has made him who he is.  There’s no doubt, if’s, and’s or but’s in his mind.  He is completely certain and congruent with what he wants.

Let me ask you, what if you had that same level of thinking with your goals?

What if by this moment forward, your proclaimed that you would do WHATEVER IT TAKES to become successful and achieve your goals?

Failure is not an option for Arnold, and nor should it be for you.

“You can develop hunger by creating a goal for yourself, a short-term goal and a long-term goal, and you must go after it.  If you do not see it and believe it, then who else will?”

Best of Arnold Photos & Quotes


“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.”

“Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.”

“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”
