I think it would be fair to say one of the best success stories of our time is without any doubt Arnold Schwarzenegger’s. You may like him or not but it doesn’t change the fact that he was an immigrant from Austria who came to America at the age of 21 who could not speak English. All he had was the American dream, a dream to become the world’s greatest bodybuilder. But as you all may know, it did not stop with becoming the greatest bodybuilder of all time, he next became the highest paid actor and eventually Governor of California. This is an inspiring story for sure and when he speaks about success this is why people listen.

One of my favourite quote by Arnold is:

”Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.”

”Help others and give something back. I guarantee you will discover that while public service improves the lives and the world around you, its greatest reward is the enrichment and new meaning it will bring your own life.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold knows the true value of helping people, you may agree or disagree with his political stance but you can respect his philosophy of helping people. If you found this post inspiring please share with someone who will appreciate the inspiration.

Some further info about Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Arnold was born in the small town of Thal, close to Graz, Austria on July 30, 1947, in a house that had no plumbing or phone. He came to America only with his bulging biceps to declare to the world on 31/10/1968.

Schwarzenegger was known as the Styrian Oak, or Austrian Oak, in the bodybuilding world, where he dwarfed his competition. He won his first amateur Mr. Universe title in 1967. After moving to California in 1968 to train and compete in bigger events in the United States, he won four more Mr. Universe titles and then the professional Mr. Olympia title six years in a row (1970–75) before retiring.
