I think the first and most important thing is that you’ve got to have a goal and a vision.
Other Arnold Schwarzenegger quotes:
I never set limits or created mental barriers. You may have read that I imagined my biceps as big as mountain peaks when I did my curling exercises. This visualization process was essential if I was to gain the kind of mass and size I needed to win the mr Olympia contest against monsters like Sergio Olivia and Lou ferrigno.
Anything I've ever attempted, I was always willing to fail.
Every year I make a plan. I do it. It will be done.
We all have great inner power. The power is self-faith. There's really an attitude to winning. You have to see yourself winning before you win. And you have to be hungry. You have to want to conquer.
What is the point of being on this Earth if you are going to be like everyone else?
Always have one possibility in mind and that is to go to the top, to be the best. Everything else should just be a means to that end.
I set out to be the best and I am.
Be hungry for success, hungry to make your mark, hungry to be seen and to be heard and to have an effect. And as you move up and become successful, make sure also to be hungry for helping others.
I didn't mind basic training. It taught me that something that seems impossible at the start can be achieved.
I will not change. Because if you are successful and you change, you are an idiot.
