“You can’t climb the Ladder of Success, with your hands in your Pockets!”

Everyone in this world wants success. Everyone has their own perception of success. Every signal individual works with a different definition of success. No matter what our social status is, no matter what our circumstances are, we crave success. But what most of us forget in this fight towards success is the idea of being consistency and persistence. Success is not a quick trip. We as a human being completely forget that in order to reach a certain point we need to give our full effort to achieve that point. We tend to forget that success is a continuous journey and this journey ends when we achieve our inner peace. Success is finding out what we love and fighting for that. One can get a clear idea of the journey towards success by following the story of the famous American. He fights for what he wanted to achieve, no matter how many obstacles he has to pass through. There will be people who will say this is the wrong direction that you are going or you are in a dream world or you are useless or what not, but with great determination and confidence in yourself, you will achieve what you want.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, an embodied of the American dream, very brilliantly said, “You can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.” He is a megastar with a true tale of “from rags to riches”.

His story depicts a picture of great struggle and determination towards his dream, his vision of becoming the American dream. It all started when he saw an image of Rag Park in magazine of Mr. Universe. With his goal to achieve Mr. junior title, he planned where he wanted himself in the future. At a young age, he uses to take a keen interest in bodybuilding. Brought up in a strict village where his father wanted him in the military, he never pushed away his dream but worked with great zeal to achieve where he is today. When every single person in the military train use to sleep from all the exhaustion of the day he would use to work out for 3 more hours and use to wake up in the morning early to again start the training.

He never loses hope and left military training house to compete in the competition and won. He not only established himself as the best in the bodybuilding world but smarty invested in his studies and also paved his way towards the celebrity world. What makes Arnold stand out among bodybuilders is that he simply didn’t identify himself as a bodybuilder. He fought for a position of governor, became a producer and a great actor popularly known as “Terminator”. His success story is phenomenal for us to learn that it was his attitude that paved his way towards success. He continues to inspire the young generation to not to compromise and have respect for the commitment they make to themselves.

The key thing is to be focused and visualize your goals. Arnold‘s story depicts that attitude is the blueprint for the rest of your life. He took a lot of work and study. No one handed it to him. He worked hard for it all. It can be concluded that success is a blend of all these things that makes a person fall in love with what he does. It requires passion and refusal to give up. That is how we can all conquer success.
