I would keep taking the book out from the school library, renewing it every 2 weeks so noone else could read about Arnie and learn his secrets. Just me, it was all mine!
I remember laughing to myself as my name was the only name to fill up both front and back of all the sign out cards for this awesome book.
Arnold was Fearless to go heavier and move HUGE & Massive poundages that others feared.
Arnold went the extra mile and did NOT fear the heavy load sitting on his back because he was sooo freaking hungry to make his calves grow because he wanted to win so badly!
Arnold also understood that this going the extra mile, or sometimes only the extra few inches is what created the greatness that so many others feared doing.
Are you going the extra mile?
What about the extra inch?
On Sunday my athletes were invited to come in for a free workout with the Coaches going through the certification / mentorship. It was a 10 AM workout.
2 kids who said they would show, did not. That is missing out on inches and miles.
That is FEAR of waking up and doing something when perhaps your mind and body are not wanting it. Sometimes, ya just gotta say 'F**k it!", right?
Arnold was Fearless to travel to America to compete against the best bodybuilders in the world when he did not speak English.
Fearless to tell people of his lofty goals of becoming the best built man in the world, moving to America and becoming a Hollywood star known around the world.
Everyone else around Arnold focused on how crazy he was, and how he should not have such "dreams".
His passioned toppled and trampled over all obstacles and road blocks.
Arnold's most powerful weapon: His Mind.
Your most powerful weapon? Your Mind.
Only if you so choose.
Most people remain scared their entire life and fear the risk of doing what Arnold did; Achieving Greatness.
Greatness to you may not mean becoming a Hollywood action hero and Mr. Olympia.
It might mean benching 315 lbs, quitting your lame 9-5 suit & tie job and not waking up to an alarm clock.
YOU decide what Greatness means and only you can define it.
But, just like Arnie did, you gotta have that "F**K It!" attitude and go for it.
You gotta believe that you too, are Numero Uno!
Above, Arnold believed he was Numero Uno, even when he wasn't smokin' The Ganja Mon!
It's OK to be scared, the trick is, not allowing your fear to control you!
