Trust yourself, the beginning of success


The first idea Arnold Schwarzenegger brought up when discussing his 6 keys to success I think is the most important one of all. Trust yourself. What does this mean? How do you go about doing this?

To me trusting yourself is a mixture of many things; self-esteem, composure, confidence, and self-worth all play a huge part in learning how to trust yourself. Trusting yourself really comes down to a decision you make for you and you ONLY! You can’t decide to trust yourself for someone else, you can’t magically begin trusting yourself because I, or someone else, says too, and you sure as hell can’t trust yourself if you don’t actually believe in yourself. Trusting yourself comes down to believing in yourself and the decisions you make and standing by them because you know the decisions you make for yourself are the right decisions. Trusting yourself should not be something to procrastinate, trusting yourself should start now! Nothing can stop you when you learn to trust yourself, and as Johann Wolfgang Von Gbethe said, “as soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live”. Truer words have never been spoken. So how do you go about being able to trust yourself? Well, it comes down to faith. Believe in what you are doing, lead your life as you want it to be, do not stray from your path, and be vigilant in your decision to continue with what you set out to do. Once a plan has been set into motion, it stays in motion. Set goals, make plans, follow a timeline and benchmarks. Whatever you need to do to stay on pace or exceed the goals you want to make can be done and should be done.

Nothing can stop you.
No one can shake loose a foundation self-trust.
Nothing can tear apart who you want to be.
Most importantly no one can take away the trust you have in yourself once you realize you know more than you think you do and you learn to believe in each and every decision you make.

Go out and make the decision.
Learn to trust yourself.
Become hungry for more and strive for the best and biggest goals you can imagine.
Believe in your decisions and don’t allow yourself to stray from the path you’ve chosen for yourself.

Arnold’s 6 keys to success Part 1


It has been quite a while since I last wrote a blog post, and for any of my readers I am sorry for the absence! Life sometimes gets way too busy! You forget some of the things you enjoy doing, the things you want to do, and focus solely on the things you need to do. All that being said, over the next few weeks I’ll be writing about a speech made by Arnold Schwarzenegger about his 6 keys to success. I would love to hear ideas and comments about anything I write and my thoughts behind some of these comments! Enjoy! 🙂

The 6 key to success:
1) Trust Yourself
2) Break The Rules
3) Don’t Be Afraid To Fail
4) Ignore The Naysayer
5) Work Your Butt Off
6) Give Something Back

I’ll be posting again later this week and will begin building on the idea of trusting yourself. I hope all of my readers have a great week and don’t forget to look back in a few days! 🙂
