1Source: Based on B. Morris, A. Gil, P. Neering, and O. Ryan, “Arnold Power”, Fortune, 9 August, 2004, 77-87; and R. Grover and A. Bernstein, “Arnold Gets Strict with the Teachers”, Business Week, May 2, 2005, 84-85. The governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is arguably playing the biggest role of his career. Elected in the October 2003 recall election that featured a hodgepodge of 135 candidates, including US celebrities Gary Coleman, Larry Flint, and Mary, Arnold replaced incumbent Gray Davis as the governor of the most populous state in the country by raking in 48.1% of the popular vote. Californians, weary of Gray Davis’ lack of progress, decided to put their trust in a man best known for his roles in action movies such as The Terminatorand Total Recall. Schwarzenegger’s ascent to the governor’s seat is impressive when one considers his background. Born in the small town on Thal, Austria, on July 30, 1947, Schwarzenegger was the product of a modest and harsh upbringing. His parents strictly disciplined him- treatment that he says “would be called child abuse” today. Schwarzenegger explains, “My hair was pulled. I was hit with belts. So was the kid next door, and so was the kid next door. It was just the way it was. Many of the children I’ve seen were broken by their parents, which was the German-Austrian mentality. Break the will. They didn’t want to create an individual… it was all about conforming. I was the one who didn’t conform and whose will could not be broken. Therefore I became a rebel. Every time I got hit, and every time someone said, ‘you can’t do this’ I said, ‘this is not going to be for much longer, because I’m going to move out of here. I want to be rich. I want to be somebody’. Determined to leave Austria, Schwarzenegger began to search for a way out, a way to become ‘somebody’. He found that way out through bodybuilding. As a child, he idolized bodybuilder Reg Park, a former Mr. Universe. Though his parents objected, Schwarzenegger pursued bodybuilding so vehemently that at one point he was able to bench-press 520 pounds (for comparison, physical fitness experts typically say that it is good to be able to bench press one’s own body weight).
