  • I'm here to talk about success right

  • the first rule of success is to have a vision you see if you don't have a

  • vision of where you go and if you don't have a goal where you go you drift

  • around and you never end up anywhere it's like you can have the best ship in

  • the world you can have the best airplane in the

  • world if the pilot or the captain doesn't know where to go

  • it would just drift around he would not end up anywhere almost like in the wrong

  • place so I was very fortunate did I stumble onto my vision I mean as you

  • know I was born in 1947 in Austria after the Second World War and I didn't really

  • like Austria grew up I couldn't wait to get out of there I couldn't see

  • myself becoming a farmer or a worker in a factory or anything like that even

  • though my parents wanted me to stay there and have a normal life my father

  • wanted me to become a police officer like he was my mother wanted me just to

  • stay there and marry a girl in the name of Heidi hopefully and have a bunch of

  • kids and run around like the Von Trapp family in The Sound of Music but that

  • was their vision not mine my vision was totally different I felt that I was born

  • for something special for something unique for something big didn't know how

  • great it felt that I knew where I was going

  • imagine the majority of people don't know where they're going

  • it's when you have a goal when you have a vision everything becomes easy

  • because remember that in America for instance when you study you will see the

  • percentage of people did like their jobs

  • 74% hate their job in America now there is not much different when you

  • come to Europe the majority of people don't like what they're doing because

  • they're really not doing it because they didn't have a goal and they'd followed

  • this goal they're just aimlessly drift around and then over said and if there's

  • a job opening so they get their job because if the world but then when you

  • grow it's a joy it's work it's not fun so if you think about only a quarter of

  • the people really enjoy what they're doing in life that is unbelievable if

  • you think about it so I felt so blessed that I knew what I was doing it's like a

  • medical student said studies and knows he wants to become a doctor you know

  • where to go so I know where to go so people always

  • ask me when they saw me in the gym in the pumping iron days you say why is it

  • that you're working out so hard five hours a day six hours a day and you have

  • always a smile in your face the others are working out just as hard as you do

  • and then look sour in the face why is that in the told people all the time is

  • it because to me I am shooting for gold in front of mr. mr. Universe title

  • so every rep that I do gets me closer to accomplishing the goal to make this call

  • this vision turn into reality every single set that I do every repetition

  • every weight that I live will get my step closer to turned his goal into

  • reality so I couldn't wait to do another 500

  • pound squat I couldn't wait it to another 500 pound bench press I couldn't

  • wait to do another 2,000 reps of sit-ups I couldn't wait for the next exercise

  • for the next half hour posing and all the kind of things that you have to do

  • you'll be a champion and with the age of 20 with the age of 20 I went to London

  • and I won the Mr Universe contest as the youngest mr. universe ever and it was

  • because I had a goal so let me tell you something visualizing your goal and

  • going after it makes it fun you got to have a purpose no matter what you do in

  • life you got to have a purpose so that's rule number one

  • have a vision rule number two is don't listen to the naysayers don't listen to

  • the naysayers everything I ever did the thing that they heard out of people's

  • mouths was that's impossible that can't be done Oh No so whenever someone said

  • to me it can't be done I heard it can be done when they said no I heard yes and

  • when they said it's impossible I heard it is possible I'm a strong believer

  • what Nelson Mandela said that everything is always impossible until someone does

  • it well I'm gonna be the one that said to

  • myself I'm gonna do it and I'm gonna show it to them maybe it has never been

  • done before that's perfectly fine with me but I am gonna do it and I did not

  • listen to the naysayers I think the third point that I'm gonna make to you

  • is before we sit down with your gun and talk about the rest of the three is work

  • your ass off there is no magic bill there is no magic out there you cannot

  • get around you have to work and work and work and it drives me crazy when people

  • say they don't have enough time to go to the gym for 45 minutes a day and work

  • out or do something for 45 minutes to an hour a day to improve if it is

  • physically improve of it is mentally to improve imagine you read one hour a day

  • about history how much you will learn after 365 hours

  • in one year think about if it's study about the history of musicians of

  • composers how much you would know imagine if you who work on the business

  • and some business that you want to develop every day for an hour

  • imagine how further along you will go and get so it drives me nuts because we

  • have when people say they don't have the time we have 24 hours a day we sleep 6

  • hours a day so that gives you still 18 hours but there's someone shaking the

  • head out there in front to say probably I don't sleep 6 hours

  • I sleep eight hours right or just sleep faster

  • so we have 18 hours a day the average person works around 8 to 10 hours so

  • let's assume it's 10 hours so if you have 8 hours left then you travel around

  • an hour a day maybe 2 hours a day so now you've still 6 hours left so what

  • do you do it is 6 hours well you do with the 6 hours then we eat a little bit and

  • we schmooze a little bit talk a little bit the people and all that stuff but

  • you can see how much time 2 is available if you organize your day so you got the

  • work hard I mean let me tell you something when I went to America I went

  • to college I went and worked out five hours a day

  • and I was working on construction because in those days in bodybuilding

  • there was no money we didn't I didn't have the money for food supplements or

  • anything so I had to go to work say we worked on construction I went to

  • college I worked out in the gym and at night from 8 o'clock at night to 12

  • midnight I went to acting class four times a week say I did all that there

  • was not one single minute that I wasted I became very friendly with Muhammad Ali

  • in the 70s Muhammad Ali worked his butt off and I saw it firsthand now remember

  • that there was a sports rider that was there in the gym when he was working out

  • and he was doing situps and they asked him how many sit-ups do

  • you do and he said I don't start counting until it hurts now think about

  • that he doesn't start counting his setups until they be feels pain that's

  • when he says counting that is working hard and so you can't get around the

  • hardware it doesn't matter who it is so maverick I believe what Ted Turner said

  • work like hell and advertise

  • you get it work like hell go to bed and early early to rise work like hell and

  • advertise so you work your ass off and then you let the world know about your

  • work that's what it is all about let people know if you have a company if you

  • have a movie if you do a sports work your ass off but then advertise and let

  • everyone know I hate plan B and I tell you why because we have so many doubters

  • as I've said earlier they eat the no sales we have so many of those people

  • that say no and you can't do it it's impossible that is ok because we just

  • turn off as I said earlier and B's listen and be here that now being a yes

  • you can't do it do it you can't do it and all that so that that is possible to

  • do that amongst all the negative people around you but when you start doubting

  • yourself that's very dangerous because now what you're basically saying is is

  • that if my plan doesn't work I have a fallback plan have a plan B

  • if that means that you start thinking about Plan B and every thought that you

  • put into Plan B you're taking away now that thought and that energy from

  • playing a and and it's very important to understand that we function better if

  • there is no safety net because Plan B becomes a safety net it says that if I

  • fail then afar and I get picked up and I have something

  • else there that was they will protect me and that's not good because people

  • perform better when there's no safety net people perform better in sports and

  • everything else if you don't have a plan B to me it is very dangerous to have a

  • plan B because you're cutting yourself off from the chance of really succeeding

  • and the reason one of the main reasons why people want to have a plan B is

  • because they are worried about failing what is if I fail then I don't have

  • anything else well let me tell you something don't be afraid of failing

  • because there's nothing wrong with failing you have to fail in order to

  • climb that ladder there's no one that doesn't fail

  • we all fail it's okay

  • what is not okay is that when you fail you stay down whoever stays down is a

  • loser and winners will fail and get up fail and get up fail and get up you

  • always get up that is a winner that is a winner

  • hey we all lose we all have lost us this is okay and

  • this is why I say don't be worried about losing because when you're afraid of

  • losing then you get frozen you get stiff you're not relaxed you got to be in

  • order to perform well in anything if it's in boxing or if it is on your job

  • or with your thinking is only happening when you relax so relax it's okay to

  • fail let's just go all out and give it everything that you got that's what it

  • is all about so don't be afraid to fail this is one of my six rules to success

  • you can only feel complete as a person if you think about what can you do for

  • your fellow member around you that maybe needs help

  • I felt like that everyone has a different motivation why you get into

  • that I was an immigrant going to America and I saw how America was the most

  • generous country in the world I mean they opened up their arms to me they

  • helped me they invited me for Thanksgiving dinner the people they

  • brought me the bodybuilders in the gym brought me plates to my apartment

  • because I had no blade said no silverware I had no bed where I had no

  • pillows at the blanket I had no TV I had no radio I had nothing

  • they brought it to my apartment they helped me that's all that firsthand

  • this generosity in America in the center myself as an immigrant that is being

  • embraced with open arms that I need to go and make sure that I give something

  • back
