From Fitness to Film: How Drive Can Make Dreams a Reality

A global icon with larger than life charisma, Arnold is a mammoth of fitness, film, and business. An immigrant from Austria with few resources, he made his dream a reality by coming to America and becoming the greatest bodybuilder in the world.

He was the youngest person to ever win the Mr. Universe title and went on to win seven Mr. Olympia titles. Arnold gained worldwide fame in Hollywood, and starred in many movies including Conan the Barbarian, The Terminator series, Predator, Twins, and Total Recall. As an author and a businessman, he earned his college degree and became a millionaire through his business enterprises in real estate, landscaping, and bodybuilding. Arnold served two terms as the 38th Governor of California from 2003 until 2011. He also works with non-profits, acts as Chairman of the After-School All-Stars, a nationwide after-school program, and serves as coach and international torch bearer for Special Olympics.

Arnold’s drive propelled and inspired him to achieve success. Come hear first-hand the four principles that have underpinned his success: have a vision and trust it; break the rules; don’t be afraid to fail, and work hard – there are no shortcuts.
