Lucknow: Arnold Schwarzenegger came to the Unites States with less than twenty dollars and a whole lot of muscle. Born on July 30, 1947, Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger was raised in Thal, Austria.

His family was so poor that they all shared the same bath water to save water. His father was strict and would often beat him to teach discipline.

From a young age, Arnold had his eyes set on America. He finally got the chance to leave home to serve a mandatory year in the Austrian army.

During this time, he snuck away from his post to compete in and win the 'Mr. Europe Bodybuilding Competition.' He moved to America in 968 with just his ambitions. While working on his form, Arnold made sure he was more than just a set of bulging biceps.

He attended the University of Wisconsin-Superior and completed a degree in Business and Economics. With good business skills and a steady income, Arnold became a millionaire before he reached the age of 22.

It was at this stage when he decided to try his hand at acting. He struggled with his own accent and a last name that producers found too hard to pronounce. But he never gave up. Arnold Schwarzenegger has won five Mr. Universe titles and has been crowned Mr Olympia seven times.

His story teaches us that:

"Strength does not come from winning your struggles, develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength."
