I finally got my laptop back so it’s time to get on track!  Thank you all for being patient!
The second step towards success that Arnold Schwarzenegger mentioned is probably one of my favorites!  Break the rules!

 

He reminds us to become bold and stay that way, to really think outside of the box and become a sort of trend setter.  Don’t go out breaking the law, hurting people, and destroying stuff!  That’s not what is meant by this step at all! Instead think about it like this:
Have you ever been sitting in class or talking to a friend about something and wondered, “Why does it have to be that way? Why does it have to be done that way?  I’m sure there are other ways to do this!”? Well, this is where you get to break the rules! Find something you love, something you have a passion for! Now….. make it better!  Most people tend to think that everything that is being done needs to be done that way, and when asked “why is it done that way?” well, the answer is usually “because it’s always been done that way!” Now what I want all of you guys to do, break the chains! Think outside the box and change the way things are done! Always question everything you are doing and everything that is being done around you! Make “why” the most common word in your vocabulary! Use it often!
Rules are meant to be broken, so live life that way.  Break away from the chains of the “only accepted way” and change the world around you.  The more you learn to do this, the more you’ll learn that the most successful people in this world have been the mavericks, the people that were the creators, the trend setters, and the “weird people”.  Become that weird person.  Become the maverick.  Become everything you want to be by taking whatever path you want to take to get there!  Don’t go a certain direction just because everyone says that’s the only correct way.  Stop listening to the cool kids.  Those cool kids will probably end up in a mediocre job while you’re off doing amazing things with your life!

Go out, break the rules, and live life the way you want to. True success is sure to follow if you are doing things your way!
