It goes without saying that Arnold is an icon and a pioneer, not only in the fitness industry, but in the movie industry as well.  But have you ever wondered how he has been able to accomplish so many personal goals he set for himself? Have you ever wondered why good things just seem to happen for him? 

Some might say fate. While others, who are jealous of what he has accomplished and angry that they haven’t been able to make strides in their life, would just chalk it up to plain luck.

The problem is, those who only see Arnold’s great moments—never see what it took to get there. They think that the road has always been easy for him and opportunities just fell into his lap. Those are the same people who think that they have no control in their lives and that stuff happens to them. Instead of them actually taking control and makint things happen. 

Arnold has known all along that there is no luck. If you want something, you have to make it happen. You have to work hard and find opportunities. And when you find them, you devote your entire being to following through and making each one successful. 

Earl Nightingale stated that “What We Believe, We Become.” That was his strangest secret. The secret that many men will never learn in their lives. But it can be the greatest catalyst to change. If you believe that you are unlucky and you can never get ahead, then you won’t. If you believe that you are a positive person, you have many gifts to give to others, and you will be a champion, then you will. Nothing will stand in your way and your relentlessness will only be over shadowed by the belief you have in yourself.

Everyone has 24 hours each day.

When you want to be successful, you work hard and make the most of the 24 hours everyone has in their day. Eric Thomas says that “it doesn’t matter if you’re rich or you’re poor, everyone has 24 hours in the day. What you do in that 24 hours will determine if you will be successful.”

What did you do today? What did you do with your time?
