Arnold Schwarzenegger is an Austrian-born American actor, film producer, businessman, investor, writer, philanthropist, former professional bodybuilder and politician. He has accomplished a lot of great things in his life in very different fields of expertise. Here is a great speech where he tells his life story and his 6 rules to life and success.
1. Trust yourself
Trust yourself and dig deep down to find what it is that makes you happy. Not what you think others would want you to do, or others may say that you need to do. Trust your own decision to do the things you’re passionate about. Only you know what your true desire is!
2. Break the rules
If you want to go forward you’re going to need to break the rules. Not the laws, but the rules of the game of life. Don’t stick to the things you were taught that you need to do. Think outside the box in every way possible. Look for new solutions for problems, you have to stand out to excel in life. The only way to stand out is to break the rules.
3. Don’t be afraid to fail
Failure is necessary to grow and learn. Everybody fails at a lot of things. You will fail in several attempts to get where you want to be, but by failing over and over you’ll learn how to overcome the problem in time. Don’t be afraid to fail, but be sure you learn from your failures. If you want to decide you can’t be afraid to fail.
4. Don’t listen to the naysayers
In everything you’re going to do there will be naysayers. The people who think you can’t do it, who don’t believe in you or who are so jealous that they don’t have the courage to do it themselves. Don’t listen to them. They’re only going to put doubt in your mind and that will only cloud your vision towards your goals.
5. Work your butt off
The most important rule of all. You never want to fail because you didn’t work hard enough. To become successful in life you’re going to need to work your butt off and go get the things you want. Nobody is going to hand you your dreams and success. No pain, no gain. It is important to have fun and enjoy your life, but be aware that there is someone else who is working while you are partying. If you want to succeed you’re going to need to work your butt off and outwork your competition.
6. Give back
No matter how hard you work for your success, but you’re always going to need to give something back to society. Help others with your knowledge, give away what you don’t need to the people who need it the most.
Remember these 6 rules. Trust yourself, break some rules, don’t be afraid to fail, ingore the naysayers, work like hell, and give something back
