Imagine breathing out sweat and tears for the most part of your life to amass a whopping fortune of $450 million. At the age of 76, one with such a luxury can retire easily and comfortably enough. Yet, bodybuilding legend and Hollywood action-hero, Arnold Schwarzenegger, does not think that it is wise for him to do so. After a stellar career that still flourishes, the legend apparently does not have a moment to waste.

After giving his best at the gym and the movies, the FUBAR star is now en route to perfect the “fourth act” of his life.

One of the many taunts that young Schwarzenegger would receive from his father was to “Be useful!”. Now, decades later, the Austrian Oak still swears by it. In an interview with People regarding his new book, Be Useful: Seven Tools for Life, the star shared that he still finds a purpose in life despite his successes. From feeding his adorable pet family to making the world fit, he has no time to rest.

Essentially calling his 70s as the “fourth act” of his life, Schwarzenegger explained that despite being content he is “always hungry for more.” However, the “more” does not represent money or fame, but the humble thought of making the world a better place. Elaborating on how he has always followed it, the 7-time Mr. Olympia champion explained that, although happily asleep with his first title, his “other foot is already out of bed going for the second.”
