“ALWAYS THINK OF YOURSELF AS SPECIAL. AND THINK, ‘I’M GOING TO PROVE TO MYSELF AND THE REST OF THE WORLD THAT I CAN DO IT.”-ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER
The bodybuilder-turned actor-turned governor-turned activist, also at 72 years of age, appears to feel that there is something that he can do and it is undoubtedly the key reason why he continues to add fresh accomplishments to his resume.
“I have never believed that I was average, and that alone is a great reason I have not been.”
Very few of us ever feel like we are meeting the rest of our goals. And let’s face it, life is a game of trial and error. So, getting caught up in the mistakes and disappointed by the trials is quick.
Don’t care about ambiguity
People should realize that I don’t have sympathy for ‘difficult.’ There are a lot of things in life that are difficult,” adds Schwarzenegger.
“You need to change your standards if you want to create habits. Each time anything is rough, are you going to back off? Or you’re going to be the person that looks at something that’s challenging or the worst, and says,’ I’m going to go and do that to show that to myself.’ That’s how you create behaviors. “
“Don’t ask me whether or not I can. You’re not doing that.
Goals aren’t sufficient. Have a Vision!
“Arnold, you got 16 hours of sleep. In this non-invasive treatment, something went wrong… you had internal bleeding, and we had to open you up in order for you not to die.
Arnold shared how his “routine cardiac operation took an abrupt turn in the most influential moment of our conversation and he endured a tough comeback before shooting the next Terminator video.
Concentration on Minor Wins
Then you need to bring in the reps or miles until you have your vision. In order to recover from his cardiac operation, this is precisely what Arnold, whom many deem the best bodybuilder of all time, had to do. He was out of the hospital within 6 days. It was just three weeks after that he experimented with light weights. And as he promised, he was on set for Terminator 6 three-and-a-half months back.
“The director said, ‘Three and a half months ago, I can’t believe you had open-heart surgery,'” Schwarzenegger continues.
