6 Rules of "Success"

I've said on this website before, while Arnold is certainly inspirational in many ways, he has fallen short on what is most important; in being a real man. Nevertheless, I know we are all imperfect in our own ways and we can always learn something. Arnold gives a good speech here that I believe to be true on many levels. I can appreciate that, even while avoiding some of his mistakes, maintaining my personal honor, and making my family my highest priority.
A preamble to this speech should include an admonition to define success. If your definition is limited to fame and/or fortune your choices and motivation will be much different than if you include personal honor and a righteous posterity as a measurement.
I hope Arnold finds that real success is much more than fame or fortune. Maybe I would humbly add a 7th rule, Always be honest to yourself and in your dealings with your fellow man. Treat others as you would be treated.
