Last week Arnold surprised us with his career transformation, if you missed it you can see it here.
Today “he’s back” with some career motivation.
Arnold’s Six Life Rules
1. Trust Yourself
What is most important is for you to dig deep down…deep deep down, and ask yourself, “who do you want to be?” Not WHAT but WHO. I’m not talking about 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.
2. Break the Rules Once in a While
It is impossible to be a maverick, or a true original, if you are too well behaved and don’t want to break the rules. You have to think outside the box. What is the point to being on this earth if you want to be like everyone else?
3. Don’t be Afraid to Fail
You can’t be afraid to fail because you will never push yourself. You push yourself because you believe in your vision and future. And you know it is the right thing to do.
4. Don’t Listen to the Naysayers
How many times have you heard that you can’t do this and you can ‘t do that and it’s never been done before?
5. Work Your Butt Off
You never want to fail because you didn’t work hard enough. Muhammad Ali, one of my great heroes had a great line in the 70’s when he was asked, “how many situps do you do?” He said, “I don’t count my situps, I only start counting when it starts hurting, when I feel pain, that’s when I start counting because that’s when I start being a champion”.
6. Always Find Time to Give Something Back
Always find time to give something back, something back to your community, your state, or your country.
