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.

Is it possible to create your own luck? Yes, of course it’s possible. Our favorite celebrities tell us all the time about the ‘big break’ that turned their career around and propelled them to where they are today. But the thing about creating your own luck is that you have to put in the work. Putting in the work, each and every day, puts you in a position to take advantage of the opportunities once they do come. And inevitably there’s going to be times where you don’t seize the opportunity that’s put in front of you, or even worse, you completely miss it altogether. But if you continue to work each and everyday, if you become more observant of what’s going on around you, you will recognize opportunities that are right in front of everyones face yet nobody else can see.

What’s really being said? How does the person across from you truly feel about you? You have the option of physically listening to what the other person is saying; but science has proved that the words someone says only accounts for about 7% of what they’re actually communicating. So what about the other 93%? Well that manifests itself in posture, eye contact, and tonality amongst other things. However, it’s not until you understand and learn to interpret the other methods of communicating that you’ll really understand how somebody feels about you or the situation. So that hot girl’s number that you got at the club but didn’t text back. Or that business deal that you were certain you were going to close but didn’t show for the next appointment. You’ll be able to see these situations coming, and possibly even avoid them, if you understand these few tricks on how to read body language.
Today I did a book of the day/ thought of the day for Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell and I think I like this book so much because it reinforces a thought I had on my own. The thought is “why do we as a society study average so much?” You must be an outlier.
