The Ultimate Motivational Speech - Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwazenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger's 6 Rules For Insane Success & Motivation

Ok. You probably have strong feelings about Arnold Schwarzenegger for any number of reasons. They may not be positive.

Regardless, if you are looking for motivation in your life, I am going to ask you to please put those aside for a moment and just start watching this video. I think that, no matter what preconceptions you may have about the man or what he has done, you will stay to the end if you make through the first three minutes.

This is very motivational stuff. Anyone with an ounce of ambition in their life should watch this video once in their life. It is one of the great college commencement speeches. Commencement Address by Arnold Schwarzenegger at the University of Southern California, May 15, 2009.

Incidentally, if you listen very, very closely, you will notice that there are times when Arnold's accent disappears completely and he speaks with just as little accent as any Midwesterner. It only lasts for an instance, and you really have to listen hard for it, but it is there.

Also, notice how quiet the audience gets as he goes along.

Food for thought.

Arnold's six rules:
  1. Trust yourself
  2. break some rules
  3. don't be afraid to fail
  4. ignore the naysayers
  5. work like hell
  6. give something back.
If you like this one, you may like the other one I posted. In it, Arnold gives a different version of this speech, but in a more conversational way and with different anecdotes.
