I was a big dreamer you know, and so my job was to clean these 7 floors between Friday, and Sunday. Everytime I would go to the 7th floor was the CEO’s office so I would bust in like I was the CEO, im dreaming like im the CEO now and who would have ever thought I’ve been blessed and here I am I am the CEO of my own company. well I think that the number one thing is you have to have a very clear vision a very clear goal of where you want to go because only then you will get there uh you can have the best airplane or the best ship in the world, but if the captain doesn’t know where to go he will just drift around if the pilot does not know where to go he will just drift around with his plane so it’s uh I think the key thing is that we know where were going and that your very passionate about that you see it always in front of you, the goal.
To thrive in whatever you do please understand your terrain know what your target is don’t guess it be as clued up as the next man because that’s, that’s, that’s your petrol that’s your fuel to get you moving. If you don’t know where your going, what your targets are, your never going to get there period. The other thing that’s important is you got to shoot for the top you got to go, and really have big goals and think big because then your going to get big then your going to go and achieve big things that is the most important thing and, you don’t achieve big things by accident. I have to tell each and every one of you that it doesn’t matter how how old you are how young you are, your age, you can achieve anything that you set your mind too and I always say if I can do it anyone can do it.
If you think that you gonna go, and accomplish something really special, and be the best in anything in the world and you think you can do it without working you make a big mistake because no matter what I did if it wasn’t in bodybuilding or in acting or if it isn’t in the political arena it always took a lot a lot of work and you got to put out, and you got to you know, sometimes its going to take a lot of sacrifices and notice If your not willing to work hard forget about it. I truly believe we are all equal as human beings, if we are obsessed with something, and we truly pursue our passion with everything we have regardless of any, anything else if you are obsessed work hard put in the time you will succeed, and that is a philosophy that I carry, my coaches carry and to see Lebron James who is like a mega superstar over here, and a phenomenal, phenomenal athlete share that belief is inspiring right back to me, and shows that we are thinking correct you know this is , this is hard work, this is an obsession, nothing can beat hard work.
This here is the reality, do you mean that the competion is not the reality? Listen, the work is behind the scenes. Competition is the easy part. Behind the Scenes is where all the work is done and everything is done to get to that one race that you need to run. I always question myself in the best of times, even when I was well number one for many many weeks, and month in a row. at certain times during the year I said “what can I improve?”, “what do I need to change?” because if you don’t do anything or you just do the same thing over, and over again you stay the same and staying the same means going backwards, because the other guys, are working harder, and improving so I always need to find ways to improve my game as well. Very often watch a lot of young people sort of meander around without any idea about why there doing what there doing. I mean to want and to be ambitious and to want to be successful is not enough.
