My names Nick Wood and I was reminded the other day of a speech from Arnold Schwarzenegger where he talks about the 6 rules for a successful life and if you want to start an online business these rules are as valid today as they were when he spoke them.  An I transcribed the speech here for you.

Of course people ask me all the time they say to me what is the secret to Success.

Rule 1


The first rule is, trust yourself but what is most important is that you have to dig deep down, dig deep down and ask yourselves who do you want to be.  Not what, but who, and I’m talking about not what your parents and teachers want you to be but you.  I’m talking about figuring it out for yourselves, what makes you happy no matter how crazy it may sound to other people. So rule number one is of course Trust Yourself no matter how what anyone else thinks.

 Rule 2

And of course rule number two is break the Rules we have so many rules
in life about everything. I said break the rules not the law but break the
rules it is impossible to be a maverick or true original if you’re too well-behaved and don’t want to break the rules you have to think outside the box that’s what I believe after all what is the point of being on the earth if all you want to do is be liked by everyone and avoid trouble?  The only way that ever got any place was by breaking some of the rules which of course brings me the rule number three.

   Rule 3

Don’t Be Afraid To Fail. Anything I’ve ever attempted I was always willing to fail you can’t always win but don’t be afraid of making decisions.  You can’t be paralyzed by fear failure or you will never push yourself.  You keep pushing because you believe in yourself and in your vision and you know that it’s the right thing to do and success will come. So don’t be afraid to fail which brings me to rule number four which is.

Rule 4

Don’t Listen To The Naysayers. I mean how many times have you heard that you can’t do this you can’t do that it has never been done before?  I love it when someone says that never no one has ever done this before, because then when I do it  that means that I’m the first one that has done it so pay no attention to the people who say you can’t be done I always listen to myself and said “yes
you can.”  That brings me to rule number five which is the most important rule of
world of all


Rule 5


Work Your Butt Off.   Now I always believe leaving no stone unturned
Muhammad Ali one of my great heroes had a great line in the 70s when he was asked
“how many sit-ups do you do?”  He said I don’t count my sit-ups I only start counting when it starts hurting When I feel pain that’s when I start counting because that’s when it really counts.  That’s what makes you a champion that’s the way it is with everything.  No pain, no gain.  Let me tell you something it is important to have fun in life of course, but when you’re out there partying, horsing around, someone out there the same time is working hard someone is getting smarter and someone is winning.  just remember that but if you
want to win there’s absolutely no way around hard work.  None of my rules By the way, of success will work unless you do.  I’ve always figured out that there’s 24 hours a day you sleep six hours and have 18 hours left. Now, I know there’s some of you out there that will say wait a minute I sleep eight hours or nine hours well then, just sleep faster, I would recommend.   Just remember you can’t climb the ladder of success in your hands in your pockets.


  Rule 6

That takes be the rule number six which is a very important it’s about giving back.
Whatever path you take in your lives you must always find time to give something back, something back to your community.  Give something back to your state or your country. Let me tell you something reaching out and helping people will bring you more satisfaction than anything you have ever done.

Remember the six rules
1. Trust Yourself.

  1. Break Some Rules.
  2. Don’t be afraid to Fail
  3. Ignore The Naysayers
    5. Work Like Hell
  4. Give Something Back.
