Success comes from lack of confidence: Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Action star Arnold Schewarzenegger says he is not as confident as people think and credits his success to always striving to do better.

The 65-year-old former California Governor said he is not as confident as he appears to be, reported Contactmusic.

"I may come across as confident, but the reality is I've really never felt I've made it. I always have been very critical of myself. I think that the secret for my success has been that I've always been hungry. I've always felt like I was not good enough, that I have not got there yet," he said.

The 65-year-old Austrian also said he believes he is so popular because he is a living embodiment of The American Dream, and built up everything he has from scratch.

"There are many types of people who come to America and have been successful, not just me. But I'm the symbol of what is possible, simply because I'm more famous.

"When I came here I had literally nothing - I only had the dream and the determination to never stop until I achieved what I set out to achieve - whether it was the ultimate body building champion or a career in politics."
