Self-confidence is something caught and not taught. And, risk-running and chance-taking are the only ways to catch it.
Other Arnold Schwarzenegger quotes:
Never follow the crowd. Go where it's empty.
If you want to be a champion you cannot have any kind of an outside negative force coming in to deflect you.
If I train the hardest, run the longest, go beyond what anyone else has the mental determination to do, I will be the winner.
Every year I make a plan. I do it. It will be done.
The resistance that you fight physically in the gym and the resistance that you fight in life can only build a strong character.
If you want to turn a vision into reality, you have to give 100% and never stop believing in your dream.
Look for small victories and build on that. Each small victory, even if it is just getting up five minutes earlier, gives you confidence. You realize that these little victories make you feel great, and you keep going. You realize that being paralyzed by fear of failure is worse than failure.
Don't go where it's crowded. Go where it's empty. Even though it's harder to get there, that's where you belong and where there's less competition.
With strength and determination you can do anything you want in life, as long as you believe in yourself, because if you don't, no one else will.
I will always stay hungry, never satisfied with current accomplishments.
