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
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.
