3 Lessons from Steve Austin 

Now that you know all about Steve Austin’s net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the best lessons we can learn from him:

 

1. Always Plan Ahead & Make Measured Yet Thorough Decisions

This can be applied to any walk of life. Whenever you face a situation, always weigh up all the possible outcomes before diving straight in there.

With Stone Cold, the outcome always circulated around someone getting their a** handed to them, but your not Stone Cold so a different approach is required. Always plan ahead. Try to ensure that when you attack a situation head on that you have a plan. This is where Austin would go through his ‘fixin’ up’ phase. 

 

2. Enjoy Exercising & Do Lots Of It

Obviously, on the face of things, this is yet another way of Stone Cold telling you that he is going to kick your a**. But there is a lot more you can take from these words of wisdom.

Stomping is a magnificent form of exercise that is highly underrated in fitness circles the world over. It’ll do your upper legs and core the power of good. It is something that Stone Cold attributed to the fine physique he sported throughout his career. 

 

3. Believe In Yourself & Your Own Abilities. You Can Do Anything

While Stone Cold was living his WWE life with eyes in the back of his head he was also promoting the most motivational of messages without even knowing it. You shouldn’t trust anyone to do anything you want doing. While you also shouldn’t always trust what people are telling you.

But the first part of this message is a more valuable lesson in how to go about your ‘biznatch’.

If you dive too deep into the latter part of that analysis you’ll turn into the paranoid, almost schizophrenic Austin of 2001… So yes, always believe in yourself. You CAN do anything that anyone else is capable of doing.
