Arnold Schwarzenegger Reveals His 6 Secrets to Success

May 21, 2015 2 min read

Bodybuilder, movie star, politician and certified legend Arnold Schwarzenegger has overcome many obstacles in life on the road to becoming successful. He has managed to preserve and come out on top after very hurdle. These 6 secrets he claims are what made him great and what has pushed him past his comfort zone when it comes to fitness, and life challenges. 1. TRUST YOURSELF arnold-warfare-2 "My parents wanted a different vision for me. They wanted me to be a police officer like my father, to marry a girl named Heidi, and to have a bunch of children, like the von Trapp family in "The Sound of Music." I wanted to get out of Austria, to come to America, to be a champion. I had total trust and confidence in that decision and I went after it. Have trust in yourself, craft your own vision, and go after it. Once you have a strong enough vision, you can work like hell to achieve it." arnold-schwarzenegger-9-2343135 2. BREAK THE RULES "People said I could not become an actor. The rules said that actors with accents could not be leading men. I broke that rule. I didn't care if no one in history had ever done it. I took acting classes, accent-removal lessons, and English lessons. I worked hard, and I became a leading man." 3. DON'T BE AFRAID OF FAILURE maxresdefault "A failure is someone who falls and never gets back up. A winner falls, gets up, dusts himself off, and keeps moving. Don't be afraid to fail! Everyone around the world fails. Don't be afraid to attack that goal." 4. IGNORE THE HATERS "When I was 15 years old and told people I wanted to be a champion bodybuilder, right away they told me it wouldn't happen. "It's impossible," they said. "It's an American sport. In Austria, you can be a ski, cycling, or maybe track and field champion, but you cannot be a bodybuilding champion. You know something? I didn't listen to them. I moved to America. I became a bodybuilding champion. The rest is history." 5. WORK HARD, NO EXCUSES "I hate when people say, "I don't have enough time to work out." That's crazy to me. You have 24 hours in a day. Sleep six hours, and you have 18 hours left. Do your job, which probably takes 8-10 hours, and you have at least 10 hours left. You're telling me you can't work out in that time?" arnold-schwarzenegger-041 6. GIVE BACK "We have to help people. There are millions of children who need help, who come from families that don't have enough money or don't read well. Help them learn to read! Encourage people to exercise! Join an organization where you can give a kid a hug, hang a medal around their neck and say, "You're a winner! We believe in you. We love you. We care for you. Do something for your community, your state, your country. Give something back." These 6 commandments have helped Arnold attack life and made him the successful man he is.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
