People Who Know Sh*t: Arnold Schwarzenegger

This is a recurring PGP series. Catch up with all installments of People Who Know Sh*t by visiting the archive.

Every week, I profile a prominent individual who helps shape my perspective on life, business, and the world around me.

What comes to mind when you think about Arnold Schwarzenegger? 80s action hero? Real estate mogul? Governor of California? Guy who Cs himself in the gym?

Arnold is not properly represented by any of these labels, because he is all of them. He’s a true life dominator who conquers whatever monstrous challenge he decides to pursue. He lives a flavorful life and does not fuck around with mediocrity. If he’s going to lift weights he’s going to win the most prestigious honor in the sport of bodybuilding, seven times. If he’s going to be an action movie hero, he’s going to create a multi-billion dollar worldwide hollywood franchise. If he’s going to enter the political arena, he’s going to be the head of the biggest, most politically and economically fucked up state in the union. And if he were born in America I guarantee you we would call him “Mr. President” at some point.

Take a listen to this recent interview by Tim Ferriss to gain a better understanding of the man behind the legend.

You can also listen to this interview on iTunes, episode #216 of The Tim Ferriss Show. (Tim is another guy who knows some shit, FYI.)
