Tim Ferriss Interviews Arnold Schwarzenegger on Psychological Warfare (And Much More)
The meaning of life is to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer.
– Arnold Schwarzenegger
Back in May of 1990, I read a long article on Arnold Schwarzenegger in Smart magazine (which I still happen to have). The article described in detail his ability to continuously overcome great odds and win. For starters, Arnold was born and raised in a small village in Austria where most people aspired to nothing more than a steady job with the government. Unlike everyone around him, Arnold craved more from life. He wanted to achieve something great in his time. So as a teen he committed to becoming a body-building champion because he saw the sport as a means of getting to America.
