Words of wisdom we can all use from Arnold Schwarzenegger

Tuesday February 1, 2011

Words of wisdom we can all use from former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger from a speech he gave Wednesday January 26 in Toronto:

  1. Trust yourself.
  2. Have a clear vision of what you want.
  3. Be willing to break the rules.
  4. Never listen to the naysayers.
  5. Don’t be afraid to fail; it is ok to fail. The bigger the risk, the bigger the reward.
  6. Work like hell! The more you work on things, the better they are. Don’t look for shortcuts! We all have 24 hours each day; you only need to sleep; that leaves 18 hours for doing other things. You have no excuse!
  7. Every day is an opportunity for learning.
  8. Be yourself – your own person. Don’t change who you are to conform to other’s vision of what you should be.
