Motivational Speech by Arnold Schwarzenegger: Sunday Motivation for St. Patrick's Day

I decided to experiment with posting something motivational and positive on the Galionite Facebook page every day for the next couple weeks to see if people enjoy tha t kind of positive thing, and I liked the motivational video I shared so much I decided to share some thoughts about it here on the Galionite website.

It was a motivational speech by Arnold Schwarzenegger, and I'm sharing the video at the end of this article, after my five favorite parts of the speech.

Work Your Butt Off

Okay, The Arnold used slightly more colorful language than I put in the heading above, but I thought it was great that he wasn't out there saying success is going to be easy. He was almost brutally honest about the amount of decision-making and sweat equity it takes to get the things you want out of life.

I know a lot of people who WANT more out of life - but instead of working to get it, they watch TV in every minute of their spare time. Watching a little TV's a great way to relax, but when it's all you do, you're watching other people live and do things when you COULD be out there doing the living yourself.

Don't Waste a Minute of Your Time

I also really respected that he mentioned not sitting around thinking about the things you would like to do.... someday.... and Schwarzenegger talked about how you can start spending even an hour a day working on the things you want to do. Then, you'll be making progress instead of watching your dreams slowly die.

Time is our most precious commodity, and the older you get, the more you begin to feel how true that is. (That part was mine - not Schwarzenegger's) Explore your schedule and lifestyle - make the time to work on achieving your goals.

Organize Your Time

Instead of saying you would do something you dream about achieving if you only had more time, organize your time and achieve your goal.
  • Break your time down into how many hours you spend on each thing you do, like hours spent working each day, time you spend sleeping, eating, visiting with friends, etc. 
  • Make decisions about what to do with the remaining time that move you toward success.
  • Even putting just one hour a day towards your goal moves you in the direction you want to go. 
    • In the speech, Schwarzenegger used the example of spending an hour a day reading about history - and how much you would know at the end of 365 hours just one year of spending a single hour each day reading about history. 
    • He also brought up the example of spending one hour a day working on a business idea and how much closer you would be to having your own (successful) business.

Forget Plan B and Focus on Your Goal

This part can be scary if you're used to having a backup plan, but Schwarzenegger says to move ahead with no safety net, and here's why.

A safety net is permission to fail, and  human beings perform better when there's no safety net in place.

If you put a lot of energy into creating a backup plan of what you're going to do when your dreams fall apart, then you're devoting energy that could go into making your dreams a success into the backup plan.

Instead, put your energy into creating the success you want, and be ready to get back up and keep working toward your goal if things don't work out the first time. And.... that leads to the last piece of advice I wanted to share from this motivation speech by Arnold Scwarzenegger.

If You Fail, Get Back Up

It's normal to get bugged out and discouraged when things go wrong with your life goals, but a setback is only the end if you choose to give up.

Relax if things go sour - it's ok to fail if you don't give up! 

Almost everyone who is succesful has failed many times, but you only see the success of others. You can't see the hard work that went into achieving success, and you can't see the number of times the successful person had to get back up and try again.

If you fail and give up, then your story ends with you as a failure. 

If you fail and keep trying, and you stay focused on your goal and working to achieve it, then your story can end in success.

And now finally, here's the Arnold Schwarzenegger motivational speech I shared on Facebook today...

So, my fellow Galionites, this was a little long, and if you've stuck with me to the end of this article, let's see what you can do!

Share your thoughts if you want to - or just go out there, work hard, work smart, be amazing, and do something great for yourself, your family and the community.
