Dig deep down and ask yourselves, who do you want to be? Not want, but WHO?

I didn’t want to just be a bodybuilding champion. I wanted to be the best bodybuilder of all time.

Dig deep down and ask yourselves, who do you want to be? Not want, but WHO?

I’m talking about figuring out for yourselves what makes you happy. You have to think outside the box that’s what I believe after all. What’s the point of being on this earth if all you want is to be like everyone and avoid trouble.

We have so many rules in this life about everything. I say break the rules, not the law, but the rules.

Dig deep down. Ask yourselves. Who do you want to be?

Not want, but who?

I’m talking about figuring out for yourself what makes you happy.

You never listen that you can’t do something.

Don’t be afraid to fail.

Anything I’ve ever attempted I was always willing to fail.

Don’t be afraid of making decisions. You can’t be paralyzed by fear of failure or you would never push yourself.

If you push it is because you believe in yourself and in your vision. And you know it’s the right thing to do. Success will come. So don’t be afraid to fail.

I mean how many times have you heard that you can’t do this and you can’t do that because it has never been done before? So pay no attention to the people who say it can’t be done.

If I would have listened to the naysayers I would still be in the Austrian Alps Yodeling. I would never have come to America. I always listened to myself say “Yes you can.”

You never want to fail because you didn’t work hard enough. Work your butt off. I always believed in leaving no stone unturned. No Pain, No Gain.

When you are out there partying and horsing around, someone out there at the same time is working hard. Someone is working hard and someone is winning. Just remember that.

You can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in the pockets.
