Many of you have probably heard of Arnold Schwarzenegger. He has had an amazing career to date, from Mr. Universe and Hollywood superstar to Governor of California.
If someone is the epitome of success, it is him. He managed to become the best in three completely different careers. What others don't manage in one lifetime, he achieved three times in a row.
Schwarzenegger gave a speech at the commencement address at the University of
Southern California when he was awarded an honorary doctorate degree in 2009. He mentions his '6 rules of success' towards the end of his speech after having given several examples of how he became successful.
Here is the audio of the last minutes of his speech where he breaks down his rules of success. I prepared a worksheet for you which you can download below the video.
If you want to understand Arnie's rules of success in more detail, watch the following videoclips or the film Pumping Iron (1977) and see what he says and what he does and how this fits into his speech on the six rules of success.
Remember the growth mindset attitude: Do not be intimidated by the success of others! Learn from the best and use their success as inspiration for your own.
