There is a real reason why fitties still talk Arnold. He’s past his prime, he’s aging better than most but still aging nonetheless, and he’s been in the news for less than savory things. But there are reasons why he’s still the boss, and here is why.
1. He’s Confident
People always talk about how attractive confidence is, but in some, people call it egotistical and full of pride. The problem is that Arnold knows he looks good, he wins championships, and he got pretty much every woman that walked past him. The same way that Lebron has no qualms about announcing his supremacy, Arnold had no problem living up to his many titles.
2. He Gave Zero F*cks
So what if he slept around, did steriods, or other drugs? He quite literally couldn’t have cared what anyone thought. It’s difficult to do whatever you want if you’re worried what people may say. He knew that for every 1 person that would bemoan, there were 100 that couldn’t help but stare at his chiseled physique.
3. He Looked Like This
I mean, simply put, you can’t be a nobody if you look like this:
4. He Walked the Walk
It’s easy to not care what people say and be confident when you know you’re putting in the work, and that is exactly what Arnold did. You could call him obnoxious or showy, but the fact is that he was in the weight room doing work every day. Problem with most today, they have diarrhea of the mouth and nothing to back it up.
5. He Created a Career in America While Barely Knowing English
In all seriousness, his signature line lives on today and its literally only 3 words. He became famous while playing a cybernetic organism. The rest of his characters were either about killing a ton of people or making outrageous faces and sounds. And then he became the mayor of a state. Try moving to Russia and having that type of longevity.
6. Nearly 100% of His Quotes Hit You In the Feels
The motivation feels that is. You know I’m right. Here are a few that you can use for today.
“What we face may look insurmountable. But I learned something from all those years of training and competing. I learned something from all those sets and reps when I didn’t think I could lift another ounce of weight. What I learned is that we are always stronger than we know.”
“The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else. I hate that.”
