Success story of Arnold Schwarzenegger
Arnold Schwarzenegger was born in a poor family who lived in a small village in Austria. He had a strict father who preferred his elder son as he looked strong unlike him. Even though Schwarzenegger’s father, Gustav, was the local police chief, he followed his dream of becoming a soccer star.
It was was during his leg workout for soccer that he decided to become a Bodybuilder. Despite opposition from his parents , he trained 5 hours a day at a young age of 15.
” It would make me sick to miss a workout. I knew i couldn,t look at myself in the mirror the next morning if i didn’t do it.”
But through consistent hardwork, he became the youngest Mr. Universe at the age of 20.
Movie star “Terminator”
For Arnold, Mr. Universe title was a ticket to America where he could fulfill his dream of becoming a movie star. So, he gave auditions everywhere but the producers turned him down saying,“you will never get a lead role because you look like a monster.” They even discouraged him due to his accent saying that you talk like a machine. But he never listened to them and worked on his accent and acting skills. And in 1984, he shut down everyone who criticized him by his flawless role in Terminator. His most loved movie of all time is Terminator 2: Judgment Day. From the classic Arnold Schwarzenegger action films like Predator and Commando are on the list.
