Over the last couple of years I’ve been reading and watching just about anything around success. I’ve watched countless videos on YouTube, enrolled on courses and read books on self improvement and self development. Some of my favorites include:
- How to Win Friends and Influence People
- Unlimited Power: The New Science of Personal Achievement
- Awaken The Giant Within: How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical and Financial Life
- Think and Grow Rich
- The 4-Hour Work Week: Escape the 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich
- Man’s Search For Meaning: The classic tribute to hope from the Holocaust
One of my all time heroes in life is Arnold Schwarzenegger. He had a vision, and his life purpose was to hit that vision no matter what. It’s all about the journey, becoming the man or person you need to be in order to reach your life vision.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of my all time heroes
In one of the YouTube videos i found years ago was “6 Rules of Success” by Arnold Schwarzenegger. I couldn’t tell you the amount of times, even in one day (!), I’ve watched this quick clip. Its taken from his honorary degree speech, but the video uses a mixture of Arnold images, which provide you with inspiration. It also has subtitles too, not sure why as Arnold speaks pretty good English haha. Check it out below, it’s well worth a watch!
6 Rules of Success from Arnold Schwarzenegger
Remember his 6 rules of success, which are:
- Trust Yourself
- Break Some Rules
- Don’t be Afraid To Fail
- Ignore The Naysayers
- Work Like Hell
- Give Something Back
This video inspires me to take action and thats what life is all about. We can read, watch and enroll in all the value that others have created however its the action we take that moves us forward, moves us towards the vision and life we want. We need to take action in life to get what we want. So, take and use the value created by others like Arnold and the authors mentioned in the books above and then action it! Do something right away, take action and that action will move you forward!
Knowledge is the first step. Action is putting that knowledge to use and moving you forward to your life vision. Take action now!
Taking action from countless watches of this video and others like it made me create this website, and even this article to help encourage others to take action on the knowledge. It’s not enough to just have the knowledge, action is what is needed to move forward. Just remember that.
What YouTube videos inspire you? Are you taking action? Put it in print below!
