READ THIS ALL: What a night… “Think big!” I have to say sitting in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s kitchen 💪 talking about life for an hour was one of the most inspirational conversations of my life.
One of my best takeaways for you was “Think big!” He told me, “Tai, don’t listen to the naysayers. They are always there and they just are too afraid to do it themselves.”
He said, “Tai, don’t fear failure much. How far can we really fall? We are all only a few feet from the ground anyway.”
Arnold isn’t perfect but his level of achievement puts him at the highest level in my mind: 7 time Mr. Olympia, multimillionaire before 30, A-list actor, 2 time California governor, and philanthropist.
Whenever people point out the flaws in others I think of the words, “let him who is without sin throw the first stone.”
Arnold told me about his daily routine (he likes to workout on an empty stomach to burn fat), why he doesn’t struggle with procrastination (he feels guilty if he’s just laying around), and that he believes in the power of mentors (his first one was Reg Park).
And he reads non stop so you know I love that📚.
My dad was a pro bodybuilder. I wish he could have been with me last night talking to Arnold. It would have been one of the highlights of his life.
I’ll be posting our full conversation on YouTube and my podcast soon. Please watch for it. Life changing.
