  • George Donaldson says:

    I’m currently struggling with chronic depression. This video has made me smile. Thank you Arnold.

  • JustVid says:

    I never knew my biological father but I always felt Arnold was a father-like figure to me. He’s strong, wise, and kind. When he speaks, you feel like everything is possible. God bless.

    • Shubhangi Singh says:


    • TheAll seer says:

      @Shubhangi Singh wahh beti

    • LotriminSpray says:

      I never met my biological father and my step dad hates my guts the moment he met me the rest of the family hates me as well. I don’t care anymore and one day will give them what they want. I have no future and I’ll be glad when i die one day. Life is not worth living for most and i gave up a long time ago. Maybe things would of been different if i had a father in my life when i needed him.

    • JustVid says:

      @LotriminSpray you shouldn’t give up even if it looks like there’s no future. Until you’re alive – everything is possible. You never know what awaits around the corner. Keep on keeping on, my friend.

    • Muhib Khan says:

      @LotriminSpray dont settle keep looking
      – steve jobs

      dont stay hopeless anything is possible

  • Bloodsaber64 says:

    That first half made me realize how visionless my entire life has been.

    • iver says:

      While in my case, it was opposite, it seems like I’m doing the right thing, I’ve decided who I want to be at 5 years old, my father told me about programming, I fell in love with it, everybody wanted to be a cosmonaut when they were little, I’ve wanted to be a programmer, currently at 15 y.o. I’m studying to become software and game developer

    • Narottam Zakheim says:

      ye that was the point mate

  • Sjaak Schulteis says:

    I’m 63 and just now I realize that, even though I’m not a millionaire, I did it too. I had a great job for 30 years, traveled around the world and retired with 55 to live in Asia. That was my dream when I was young and now, listening to the words of Schwarzenegger I fulfilled my dream!

    • Provokatör Suat says:

      Retired in the land of easy to get ypung girls sounds like a fantastic goal to me

    • Nitta Yoshifumi says:

      Good for you

    • Bradford Palmer says:

      Being 64, and living 3/4 of my life disappointed in the achieving my goal of being a animal doctor, I suddenly realized, many of those guys are still working, while I retired at 52.

      It takes retrospection and removing oneself from people who put you down, before you’re able to see what you’ve accomplished.

      Thanks for the post.

    • sunday perez says:

      @DJ Moon Knight he said Asia that doesn’t mean China automatically lol

  • Arthur Galestian says:

    Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of my favorite living people on this planet, someone I continually look up to. What a gem this man is.

    • firesupport says:

      I certainly wonder why California voted him out he can only do so much as a Governor and he’s done way better than what their now Governor is doing

    • The Snowflakes are Melting says:

      Well he says sacrooo your freedom

    • Michael Duke says:

      Not after COVID rotted his brain! He said screw your freedoms at a time when it was known the jab didn’t stop community spread.

  • Remington says:

    I think this is one of the BEST motivational speeches I’ve ever Heard. It applies to all of us’ no matter what color we are’ we all are HUMAN BEINGS, we are all the same. Some ppl need to stop pushing other to think they’re different because we are not different. We have to do this together having a goal and sharing it with others. Thank you to our FARMERS and what they go through to make it for themselves to help us.
    I found it to be very motivating for all. Rule no#2 right on

  • Leon Stenutz says:

    3:38: “I had a goal. Visualizing your goal and going after it makes it fun. You got to have a purpose no matter what you do in life! — Schwarzenegger

  • Ahmed Shakoor says:

    I have immense respect for Arnold. He saw the dedication of farmer and factory workers and the way those hardworking men struggled to provide for their families and said “I want more”. He wanted to achieve more than mediocre but respectable greatness. He wanted to be herculean. The stuff of legend. He wanted to be an inspiration and He achieved it. What a absolute legend. I promise myself I will have pride in what I do. I promise myself I will work hard. I promise myself I will become a great man like Mr. Universe himself Arnold. He is still amazingly great today. I will become strong. I will achieve my goals. I will be a good man.

  • Mr Wilkerson says:

    One of my biggest inspirations(especially in the gym). The dedication and hard work he put into building one of the Blueprints to success. Very motivating! BIG respect Arnold 💯💯

  • innov4u says:

    Arnold’s message is so powerful and inspiring because it’s simultaneously both logical and emotional.
    It says, turn negatives into positives, ie impossible to possible.
    Also his delivery is powerful.
    In all, an inspiration 🙂

  • Daniel Overbury says:

    Very inspiring speech when you need that boost in motivation. Really makes you think about possibilities.

Schwarzenegger’s personal journey from humble beginnings to becoming a global icon is a testament to the power of resilience and relentless pursuit of one’s dreams. His unwavering determination and unwavering belief in oneself are truly awe-inspiring. This speech has touched my soul and reminded me that with hard work, dedication, and a burning desire, anything is possible. Thank you, Arnold, for reminding us to dream big and never settle for mediocrity. Prepare to be moved, inspired, and ready to conquer any obstacle that stands in your way.

  • Yong Fox says:


  • kdee says:

    His physique during the late 70s has never been surpassed in my opinion. The proportions, condition and total package was phenomenal.

  • M&K says:

    👏 what a story loved watching it unfold growing up over the years. Big fan of his, cant believe so much time has passed 😢 glad that strategy worked out for him 😊

  • History Unveiled says:

    Arnold Schwarzenegger’s motivational speech was nothing short of inspiring. His incredible life journey and unwavering determination served as a powerful reminder that with hard work and perseverance, anything is possible

  • Frank Allen says:

    Thank you so incredibly much, Governor. I could never describe how important hearing this has been. This is exactly what has been destroying my life. I’ve known these things on some level for a long time, but to hear you speak them clearly and directly crystallized these things in my mind. This has reenergized me towards the path I should be taking. The one biggest difficulty is I haven’t been able to define a direction and a goal. I knew this was the thing that I lacked, and your message stated this with such simple clarity, that it is unmistakable of what I am lacking.

    • Adil Hgamim says:

      Life isn’t easy because the human cannot choose the area where he grows up so just people has chance to find himself
