Patrick Schwarzenegger Quotes

Patrick Arnold Shriver Schwarzenegger

Patrick Schwarzenegger quotes: for a dude with such rich and famous parents, he seems to have his sh*t together.

“Whatever seems like a lot when you’re just dreaming about it or thinking about it, when you write it down and you visualize what you can do every day to move closer towards those goals, it really helps. I learned it from my dad. Nothing is too much or too big. You can do it all, if you put your mind to it. It’s an incantation whose magic comes not from the words but from the work it inspires.”

“I keep a whiteboard next to my bed. It’s separated into five columns: Family, Financial, Physical, Mental and Work. I put it next to my bed so I’m reminded every day of where I want to go and how to utilize the day, and not push off till tomorrow what I can do today towards those goals.”

“I’m a grand-nephew to John F. Kennedy who once said, ‘Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.'”

“I think you can learn a thing or two from my dad or my mom. My dad was always adamant about not letting anybody else’s opinions mess with his drive or where he wanted to go. No matter what you’re doing in life, there’s are always going be people hating on you and wanting you to fail.”

“You can look at anything in life as a positive or negative. I definitely like to see it as a positive. Like everything in life, if you’re not going to put the time in, if you’re not going to work hard, if you’re not dedicated, people will care only so much what your name is and then they’ll say ‘next.'”

“When you play tennis with someone who is not good, you’re not good, but when you play with someone who is really good, you become better. That’s how it works.”

“My mom always talks about how hard it was to grow up in a political family. It’s always split up, and just—I want to have fun in life. No, politics isn’t on the list.”

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'”

“I’ve wanted to do some sort of acting stuff down the line, but modeling is a good way to get comfortable in front of the camera.”

“I’d run lines with dad. I always wanted to be an actor. I’d do new plays in acting class. We’d get assigned a partner, do a dozen scenes, and I’d practice with my parents.”

“My mom raised me with the idea of doing public service, and I definitely want to go in that direction. But I also want to follow in my dad’s entrepreneurial footsteps.”

“If an opportunity arises, then I won’t use school as an excuse not to work.”

“I’ve always been positive. I’ve always liked clothes. I love to go shopping and see what catches my eye.”

“I’ve always been into dressing nicely. My dad’s really into fashion, also. We’ll always go out and buy stuff. He has his own style and I have my own style, but it’s a shared thing. Same thing with my grandfather; he was really into his style, so it’s just sort of been passed down, I think.”

“Fashion and wearing clothes is a daily routine for everybody. What better way to spread the word of giving back and philanthropic ways of life than to wear something that gives back to charity?”

“My grandmother always said, ‘When you receive a paycheck, you always have to put a certain amount to your savings, and 10% right away to charity.'”

“I’m very fortunate to have been raised in my family. I learned early about the importance of giving back.”

“My passion for philanthropy, for example, comes from my parents and grandparents. My grandmother started the Special Olympics World Games, and I’ve worked and volunteered at the games or ceremonies ever since I was a little kid.”

“That was my introduction to giving back and volunteering. Obviously my parents have continued that family tradition and we always help different charities. But, at the end of the day, you still have to want to help—and I don’t think there’s any better feeling than giving back. Truly, I’m at my happiest when I see someone’s face, their reaction when you help them out.”

“In times like these, it’s always interesting to see how people come together, put aside their differences, and find ways to help people that are struggling. Through Instagram, we can get our message out to tons of different people. It’s how we are able to promote optimism and people that are using charities or creating organizations to help people that are really in need.”

“There are many other perks of being a Schwarzenegger. I was able to tag along with my dad across the Hollywood movie scene. Considering all of the big franchises that he’s been a part of… it has been full of very fun experiences. I was able to tag along on set while I was a child, including sleeping in the trailer and watching my father in front of the camera.”

“I’m very proud to call my father my mentor. My favorite advice from my father is, ‘Working hard and making sure that when you wake up each and every day, that you want to do the thing that you’re working on.'”

“Both my parents are proud of me. It’s pretty surreal ‘cause I remember growing up and going to set with him and it was like my favorite activity. I was so sad when he became governor and to go from Universal Studio’s lot to the Capitol. But it was really surreal to have him come to set, have kind of the pages turned. He’s really proud of me and they’re so supportive. I couldn’t ask for a better parent duo.”

“There’s definitely a lot of time management and juggling to be done. But, honestly, I love being stressed and having a lot of work. I find it easier to be organized when I’m stressed than when I have nothing going on.”

“I never really felt pressure to pursue a certain career. My parents always taught me that passion should drive your career choice. You should pursue whatever you wake up and are excited about, something you love doing. Whatever that was for me, they’re supportive of.”

“I’m becoming an inspiring entrepreneur, and I’ve sought out my father when it comes to questions on investing in certain businesses. It does not hurt to seek out dad’s advice when it helps.”

“The restaurant business is the most insane business, I think, that you can be in. But I fell in love with it and I wanted to get behind it.”

“With acting you can work for three months and not work for a year. So having other things you like to do during those down times is important.”

“Kids want their parents to be proud of them and to be happy for them. My parents just want us to do what we want to do. My dad has always said to follow your passion. It’s not really work if you’re doing something you love to do.”

“My mother’s nickname for me is ‘Positive Patrick.’ I like to live up to that title.”

“I understand it is better to be high on life instead.”

“I’m very motivated. I write everything out. I have a goal board and mood board right next to my bed, so I see it every day when I wake up and know exactly what I want to concentrate on and accomplish that day. And this year I am fully committed to accomplishing all of my goals.”

“Balancing it all is just time management at the end of the day.”

“I don’t feel any pressure. I’m blessed that my parents come from different backgrounds. It’s molded me into who I am, and the lessons that I’ve learned from them, and the inspiration that they’ve been for me… ultimately, I do want to make my own name and be my own person and not just, you know, ‘That Kennedy kid,’ or, ‘Oh, that’s Arnold’s kid,’ or something like that. Both are amazing things to be known for, but I want to be successful on my own terms, and give back in my own ways.”

“I’d love to just continue to work. For me, working is fun and living the dream. Whatever role’s next, I’m excited for it!”

“So yes, I’m very busy and have a lot on my plate right now, but there’s tons of people out there that have more, and they’re not complaining that they’re working their asses off. I love what I do, so for me it’s fun and I look forward to being busy each and every day.”
