  • Work your ass off there is no magic pill. It drives me crazy to go to the gym. If you read one hour a day

  • I went and worked out five hours a day, and I was working on construction

  • We have 24 hours a day, organize your day, work hard

  • I'm here to talk about success

  • 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

  • I didn't have the money for food supplements or anything. So I had to go to work. So I worked in 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

  • I did all that

  • There was not one single minute that I wasted

  • And this is why I'm standing here today

  • At 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

  • 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

  • 74% of the people hate their job in America

  • The majority of people don't like what they're doing

  • Because they are really not doing it because they didn't have a goal and followed this goal

  • They're just aimlessly drift around and then there's a job opening so they get their job because you have to work

  • But then when you work it's a chore

  • 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

  • So people always ask me

  • When they saw me in the gym in the pumping iron days, they 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 on your face

  • The others are working out just as hard as you do and they look sour in the face

  • Why is that?

  • And I told people all the time because to me I am shooting for a goal

  • In front of me is the Mr Universe title

  • So every rep that I do gets me closer to accomplishing the goal to make this goal, this vision turn into reality

  • Every single set that I do

  • Every repetition every weight that i lift will get me a step closer to turning this goal into reality

  • So I couldn't wait to do another 500 pound squat. I couldn't wait to do another 500 pound benchpress

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

  • 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 the purpose

  • Mohammed Ali

  • Worked his butt off

  • And I saw it firsthand

  • Now remember that there was a sports writer

  • That was there in the gym, and he was working out he was doing situps

  • And 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 situps and he feels pain

  • That's when he starts counting

  • That is working hard

  • And so you can't get around the hard work, it doesn't matter who it is

  • Work your ass off. There is no magic pill

  • There is no magic out there

  • You cannot get around you have to work and work and work

  • You have this make sure of that in order stuff. So it's work

  • And it drives me crazy when people say that I don't have enough time

  • To go to the gym

  • For 45 minutes a day and work out

  • Or to do something for 45 minutes to an hour a day to improve if it is physically improve or if 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 you study about the history of musicians of composers how much you would know?

  • Imagine if you would 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 when people say they don't have the time. We have 24 hours a day

  • We sleep six hours a day. So that gives you still 18 hours

  • There's someone shaking the head out here 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 we have 8 hours left then you travel around an hour a day

  • Maybe two hours a day. So now you have still six hours left. So what are you doing with this six hours?

  • Maybe eat a little bit. Maybe schmooze a little bit

  • Talk a little bit to people and all that stuff, but you can see how much time is available if you organize your day

  • So you got the work hard

  • I hate Plan B

  • I tell you why

  • Because we have so many doubters as I've said earlier the no sayers

  • We have so many of those people who say no, you can't do it, that's impossible

  • That is okay because we just turn off as I said earlier and bees

  • Listen and be hear that no being a yes. You can't do it do it. You can 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. I have a plan B

  • And 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 plan a

  • 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 a fall and I get picked up and I have something else there that means 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

  • I'm telling you I've never ever

  • had a plan B I

  • I made a full commitment that I'm gonna be a bodybuilding champion. I made a full commitment that I'm gonna be in America

  • I made a full commitment that I'm gonna get in the show business

  • And I'm going to be a leading man. No matter what it takes. I will do the work.

  • I will do the work over and over and over, until I get it

  • The same as in politics and everything like that. So 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 Michael Jordan said in one of his interviews

  • When they said "you're unbelievable the greatest basketball player of all times"

  • I mean tell me about that. And then he said "Well, you just mentioned the successes"

  • But he says "for me to become the greatest basketball player I missed"

  • "nine thousand shots"

  • "When I was playing basketball in the NBA games"

  • So during this games that he was so successful he missed nine thousand shots

  • Does it make him a failure? No, he is one of the greatest basketball players are four times, but he failed

  • 9,000 times. Do you get it?

  • We all fail. It's okay.

  • What is not ok is 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

  • I failed in bodybuilding. I lost bodybuilding competitions

  • I lost powerlifting competitions and lost weightlifting competitions

  • I had movies that went in the toilet that were terrible. It got the worst reviews

  • And in politics, I remember I had many of the initiatives and the ballot

  • And we lost

  • My approval rating in California went down to 28% and

  • Then it went back up again and I won again the governorship

  • Hey, we all lose

  • If you all have lost as 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

Work your ass off there is no magic pill. It drives me crazy to go to the gym. If you read one hour a day
