Drugs like steroids give you an advantage, but you still have to put in the work to make progress. Watch the video -- it's short.

I always laugh at the "The nerves are high because it is all on the line" trope. If you haven't burned the fear of competition out of yourself through practice, then you haven't practiced enough.

Indeed, Arnie is a good example :-) Here he quotes Muhammed Ali on the topic of hard work:

"Muhammed Ali, one of my greatest hero’s had a great line when he was asked: ‘how many sit ups do you do?’. He said: ‘I don’t count my sit-ups, I only start counting when it starts hurting, that is when I start counting, because then it really counts, that’s what makes you a champion’. That’s the way it is with everyting, no pain, no gain!"
