Being born just after World War 2, ‘The Austrian Oak’ faced many challenges in his life. Due to this, he understands the importance of embracing toughness and discomfort. He suggested on the Howard Stern Show, “Don’t start creating a generation of wimps and weak people.” Explaining further about the same, Schwarzenegger pointed out in his daily newsletter that it’s not just the new generation he was talking about; it’s also the older ones that are becoming way too comfortable. “I’m also worried about my generation. Boomers whine on social media as much as Gen Z,” he stated.

However, this has led to people becoming too soft.
