The past couple of weeks have been hectic for Arnold Schwarzenegger. Arnold has been looking forward to the release of his new book on October 24th and has been promoting his latest work, appearing on interviews, podcasts, talk shows, etc. During an interview with CBS Mornings, Schwarzenegger pointed out, “The most important thing is that kids today don’t have goals. And so what I’m trying to do in this book is to let them know the most important thing is to have a goal, because if you have nothing to chase, then why are you going to school?”

Suggesting a solution for this, Schwarzenegger disclosed that without a goal, a person can never make it big in life. He believes that the problem is that people often underestimate themselves and don’t set goals for themselves, which is a waste of time and resources. “So you have to chase something if you have a goal, whatever that may be, and then it makes it much more fun,” Arnold emphasized.

After serving as Governor of California, Schwarzenegger expressed his desire to run for President of America. However, because he was not born in America and was given citizenship later, he was denied a chance to stand in the elections as per the constitution. However, even years after this happened, Schwarzenegger says, “I think that I would have made a great president.”

During a podcast with Howard Stern, he was asked if it was frustrating for him when he was denied a chance. Replying to this, Schwarzenegger said, “It really wasn’t.” Explaining the reasoning behind this, he stated, “I felt kind of like everything that I’ve accomplished in my life… all because of America,” Arnie said.
