i thought some one out there might benefit from this so here they are ... all quotes from the good old ARNOLD ....
I never set limits or created mental barriers. You may have read that I imagined my biceps as big as mountain peaks when I did my curling exercises. This visualization process was essential if I was to gain the kind of mass and size I needed to win the Mr. Olympia contest against monsters like Sergio Oliva and Lou Ferrigno ...

"Experiencing this pain in my muscles and aching and going on and on is my challenge. The last three or four reps is what makes the muscles grow. This area of pain divides a champion from someone who is not a champion. That's what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they'll go through the pain no matter what happens. I have no fear of fainting. I do squats until I fall over and pass out. So what? It's not going to kill me. I wake up five minutes later and I'm OK. A lot of other athletes are afraid of this. So they don't pass out. They don't go on." - Arnold Schwarzenegger!
I just use my muscles as a conversation piece, like someone walking a cheetah down 42nd Street. - Arnold Schwarzenegger!

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.
Learned helplessness is the giving-up reaction, the quitting response that follows from the belief that whatever you do doesn't matter.
"Good things don't happen by coincidence. Every dream carries with it certain risks, especially the risk of failure. But I am not stopped by risks. Suppose a great person takes the risk and fails. Then the person must try again. You cannot fail forever. If you try ten times, you have a better chance of making it on the eleventh try than if you didn't try at all."

The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it-as long as you really believe 100 percent.

"I was always interested in proportion and perfection. When I was fifteen, I took off my clothes and looked in the mirror. When I stared at myself naked, I realized that to be perfectly proportioned I would need twenty-inch arms to match the rest of me."

"My body is like breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I don't think about it, I just have it."
— Arnold Schwarzenegger
"As a kid I always idolized the winning athletes. It is one thing to idolize heroes. It is quite another to visualize yourself in their place. When I saw great people, I said to myself: "I can be there.""

'We all have great inner power. The power is self-faith. There?s really an attitude

'The unique thing about bodybuilding is that when I compete it is just me on a stage
alone. There is no field, no bat, no ball, no skis, no skates. All other athletes
have to use equipment, like a football. But I don't use anything in competition
except myself. It's just me up there. Me alone. No coach. No nothing.'
'My definition of a sport is that it's a physical activity that involves
competition. Since bodybuilders certainly train and then compete, we are certainly a
