What I Have In Common With Arnold Schwarzenegger

I have covered these same things this blog over the past year, and in FB posts before that, and of course, I have lived it since the year 2003. Let’s take a look

1. Trust Yourself

When I started designing my car, and later when I started my company, I knew that I didn’t know what I was doing, but I always believed I could figure it all out. That’s it really. Sometimes that’s all it takes.

2. Break Some Rules

Not a problem, this one I have covered. Stupid rules are made to be broken. From studying for my degree picking the courses I wanted, even when I wasn’t accepted into the specific programs, applying instead after I had completed them, to doing business unconventionally, figuring out things as we go.

3. Don’t Be Afraid To Fail

It goes without saying, I have failed a lot. When you try everything for the first time, it sort of comes with the territory.

4. Ignore The Naysayers

This does not only mean haters, it also means ignoring your friends or family members who may not share your faith. It takes a strong mind to remain dedicated and committed, specially if everyone around you thinks you are wasting your time, and won’t succeed, and definitely if your goals are to do something that hasn’t been done before.

5. Work Like Hell

In Ryan Cavalieri’s words: “I don’t know how you do it. I don’t know how you have time to do anything.”. Well, basically by not having a life outside of JQRacing, it is actually possible. This is the one that I feel like I fail at the most. Spreading oneself too thin only means being average at everything, and not doing anything as well as possible. I feel like I leave too much on the table.

6. Give Something Back

I try to give good young drivers with the right attitude and dedication the opportunity to achieve their goals in RC racing. I provide a ton of content such as this, for free. Outside of RC I give back too, but that’s a different story. Good things happen to good people, so try and be a good person.
