Arnold Schwarzenegger Leaves the Audience SPEECHLESS | One of the Best Motivational Speeches Ever

now Arnold Schwarzenegger Leaves the Audience SPEECHLESS | One of the Best Motivational Speeches Ever im here to talk about success Music the first rule of success is to have a vision you see if you dont have a vision of where you go and if you dont have a goal where you go you drift around and you never end up anywhere i mean as you know i was born in in austria after the second world war so i was very fortunate that i stumbled under my vision and i didnt really like austria when i grew up i couldnt wait to get out of there i couldnt see myself becoming a farmer or a worker in a factory or anything like that even though my parents wanted me to stay there and have a normal life but that was their vision not mine my vision was totally different i felt that i was born for something special for something unique for something big then one day i went to school i remember was years old and they showed a documentary about america there they showed this documentary the huge skyscrapers the high rises the huge bridges the six lane freeways and all of this stuff in this emissive thats where i want to be Music i dont want to be around here with these little farmhouses and these little buildings i want to be in america one day after school i walked by a store in graz so i went inside and i looked around and then i saw a magazine theres a bodybuilding magazine that had reg park on the cover bridge park was then a threetime mr universe and i saw him on the big screen as hercules i read that and i said to myself wow this is the blueprint for my life this is exactly what i want to do i want to become a bodybuilding champion just like rage park i want to get into movies just like rich park and i want to make millions of dollars and be rich and famous just like reg park do you know how great it felt that i knew where i was going imagine the majority of people dont know where theyre going i knew where i was going that im going to become this bodybuilding champion just like him so it was just a question of how do you do it i was so relieved because when you have a goal when you have a vision everything becomes easy so people always ask me when they saw me in the gym in the pumping iron days they say why is it that youre working out so hard five hours a day six hours a day and you have always a smile on your face and i told people all the time i said because to me im shooting for gold in front of me is the mr universe title so every rep that i do gets me closer to accomplishing that chord to make this core 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 turn the score in the reality so i couldnt wait to do another pound squat i couldnt wait to do another pound bench press i couldnt wait to do another reps of situps i couldnt wait for the next exercise with the age of i went to london and i wanted to miss the universe contest as the youngest mr universe ever and it was because i had a goal Applause so let me tell you something visualizing your goal and going after it makes it fun youve got to have a purpose no matter what you do in life youve got to have a purpose Music percent hate their job in america now theres not much different when you come to europe the majority of people dont like what theyre doing because theyre really not doing it because they didnt have a goal and they followed the score they just aimlessly drift around and then all of a sudden if theres a job opening so they get their job because you have to work but then when you work its a chore its work its not fun so if you think about only a quarter of the people really enjoy what theyre doing in life that is unbelievable if you think about it so i felt so blessed that i knew what i was doing its like a medical student that studies and knows he wants to become a doctor you know where to go and the same thing is also in politics i remember that in politics i had a very clear vision Music that i will be the leader of california this is as far as i could go because i was not born in america so i could not run for president so being the governor of the fifth largest state of i should say the largest state the fifth largest economy in the world was for me really the ultimate title the ultimate accomplishment in politics so even though people came up to me and says why dont you go and run for something smaller youre never gonna make it i ran for governor and then two months later i became governor of the state of california again because i had a very clear vision what im gonna do with california so thats rule number one have a vision rule number two is dont listen to the naysayers dont listen to the naysayers everything i ever did the thing that they heard out of peoples mouth was thats impossible that cant be done or no that is exactly what i heard and of course i proved to the people that it cant be done so whenever someone said to me it cant be done i heard it can be done when they said no i heard yes and when they said its impossible i heard it is possible im a strong believer what nelson mandela said that everything is always impossible until someone does it well im gonna be the one who said to myself im gonna do it and im gonna show it to them maybe it has never been done before thats perfectly fine with me but im gonna do it and i did not listen to the naysayers its all about the hard work that you put in i said i must have been bodybuilding i worked out five six hours a day im gonna do the same thing now for acting and of course i went to college to study english i studied the accent removal acting classes and all of this stuff all day long i worked and i worked in the works Music and within a short period of time i made one movie called hercules in new york which of course went right into the toilet but it didnt discourage me i still had the same vision and then all of a sudden i did streets of san francisco i did stay hungry and pumping on and the villain and then all of a sudden i was asked by dino de laurentiis at the universal studio to star in conan the barbarian and after i did conan the barbarian the director at the press conference said to the press the director was john millius he said to the press if we wouldnt have had arnold we would have had to build one so think about that the very body that they said can never be sold because the time is wrong a few years later im doing conan the barbarian and it was the number one hit at the box office when it came out in the summer of think about that and the director says if we wouldnt have had his body we would have had to build one so all of a sudden my body became an asset not a liability and the same thing was with terminator after we were finished filming terminator jim cameron said to the press if arnold wouldnt have had that accent and talk like a machine i think the movie wouldnt have worked so think about that the body and the accent that they attacked was an asset but i didnt listen to those losers i didnt listen to them at all its just the reality of it is that you cannot listen to the naysayers so this is a very important lesson for all of you so when someone says no this is a stupid idea you in your mind you dont have to say but your mind to say this of you your soul what do you know Music Music you '
