Have a Clear Goal I had a goal and whatever it takes to get there I would do. So I was doing my daily work, cleaning the guns and going to the shooting range margin 20 miles a day and running at five in the morning with heavy camper boots, with all kinds of stuff. I work out three hours and get up early in the morning, again do the most sit-ups and push-ups. Everyone would say this is the wrong direction that I am going, or I am in a dream world, I am useless. I made up my mind that whatever it was as an athlete I am going to break. I needed to reach that goal, that vision of being a world champion. To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goal. - Abdul Kalam Rule #2. Think Big Think big, then you going to get big. Then you are going to go and achieve big things, that is the most important thing. You know we don't achieve big things by accident, so shoot for the top. Shoot for the skies, shoot for the stars. As long as you are going to be thinking anyway, think big. - Donald Trump Rule #3. Work Your Butt Off The other thing is that youve got to work your butt off! If you think that you are going to go and accomplish something really special and be the best in anything in the world and you think you can do it without working you make a big mistake. Because no matter what I did, if it was a body building or acting or in the political arena it always took a lot of work. If you are not willing to work hard forget about it, so this is a rule that is very important. You have to fight to reach your dream. You have to sacrifice and work hard for it. - -Lionel Messi Rule #4. Use Power of Potential Use your power of potential and make this nation and this world a better place. It worked for this immigrant who came over here to this country with twenty dollars in the pocket and I know and I guarantee it will work for you too. With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world. - DALAI LAMA Rule #5. Keep trying until you Succeed If you afraid to fail then youll always be holding yourself back because you are afraid that if you go all out you may fail. But in weightlifting we learned that very quickly, the only way you could break a record is if you willing to fail. That's when you put on more weight you tried something until you would not be able to lift again, which has happened to me many times. But eventually when you train hard enough you would lift it. So don't be afraid to fail. Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war. - Donald Trump Rule #6. Be Focused In Austria kids were conditioned to follow parents path. But unlike other kids around me I was very determined that I have to get out there. And then one day, I saw the cover of a magazine with the picture of Reg Park, It says, how Mr universe became Hercules. I opened this magazine and a read through it and there was the whole plan laid out. I ask myself, Arnold, what is it about you that is so different, why are you the only one that sees it so clearly, about this call of going to America, winning the Mr Universe contest and getting in the movies in making millions of dollars no one knows or talks about this around here. Is it real, is it just a crazy fantasy, but wait a minute, Reg Park did it. Then that's possible Arnold, focus, the key thing is to be focus, I started visualizing myself standing up to the stage just like Reg Park and it became more and more clear, I said to myself, Arnold you've got to go believe in yourself. If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you'll achieve the same results. Rule #7. Believe in Yourself This is why I try to tell you anything and everything can be done, if you can visualize it if you believe in yourself. It was the same thing again when I ran for governor, you can imagine when I went on at the night show and I announce that I am going to run for governor of the great state of California. People came to me afterwards and say you are crazy, you don't announce something like this on The Tonight Show, you should have an official press conference at the State Capitol. Plus, you don't start first from the governorship, you go and start first with Mayor, with state Senator, and I said I don't want to be senator, I don't want to be mayor, I want to be governor don't you understand that. Well the rest is history I won in 2003, and I won also in 2006. Let me tell you, you're going to find the naysayers on every turn you will make. Don't listen just visualize you go or know exactly where you want to go trust yourself get out there, work like hell, break some of the rules and never ever be afraid of failure. Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but rea-sonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy. - Norman Vincent Peale Rule #8. Dont Listen to Naysayers I mean how many times have you heard that you can't do this, you can't do that, because it has never been done before. Somehow, but I love it when someone says that never no one has ever done this before because then, when I do it that means to them, I am the first to succeed in doing it. So pay no attention to the people who say it can't be done. I always say to myself, yes you can. Whatever you do you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there will always be someone to tell you that you are wrong. - Ralph Waldo Emerson Rule #9. Dont Be Afraid to Fail Anything I have ever attempted I was always willing to fail, you cannot always win but don't be afraid of making decisions, you can't be paralyzed by fear of failure or you would never push yourself. You keep pushing because you believe in yourself and in your vision and you know that it's the right thing to do success will come soon don't be afraid to fail. The biggest risk is not taking any risk... In a world that is changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaran-teed to fail is not taking risks. - Mark Zuckerberg Rule #10. Break The Rules There are so many rules in lives about everything, I say great, break the rules not the law. It is impossible to be a maverick or too original if you are too well-behaved and want to break the rules you have to think outside the box probable that is what I believe after all. What is the point of being in this earth if all you want to do is to feel like everyone and avoid trouble. The only way that Ive ever got anyplace was the breaking some of the rules. What matters is this: Being fearless of failure arms you to break the rules. In doing so, you may change the culture and just possibly, for a moment, change life itself. - Malcolm Mclaren SUCCESS QUOTES FROM ARNOLD Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength. Help others and give something back. I guarantee you will discover that while pub-lic service improves the lives and the world around you, its greatest reward is the enrichment and new meaning it will bring your own life. The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent. I knew I was a winner back in the late sixties. I knew I was destined for great things. People will say that kind of thinking is totally immodest. I agree. Modesty is not a word that applies to me in any way - I hope it never will. Failure is not an option. Everyone has to succeed.
