    And even when they experience failure, they shrug it off and get back on to more success.

    I'm talking about the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger, coming from a farm where bodybuilding didn't exist to winning Mr. Olympia title seven times and becoming one of the greatest bodybuilders, then going into acting with nothing but a heavy accent, monstrous built and a name like Schwarzenegger and becoming one of the biggest movie stars ever, then going into politics and running for Governor.

    Dwayne Johnson, who's actual total run in the WWE was 6 years. From 1997 to 2003 but is considered one of the greatest professional wrestlers ever. A New York Times bestseller. Today he is the biggest star in Hollywood.

    Who else?

    Donald Trump. Started as a poor kid with only a million bucks and turned it into the equivalent of what it would have been had it been invested in a diversified fund. Then became a national television star on par with the Kardashians. Now, he carved out a place in history as an underdog and the future POTUS.

    Does it have to be a big buff guy or do businessmen and other professions count?

    Buffness is the only recognized measure of success on Sherdog

    In that case, it must be Tom Cruise. Started as a short little kid, made fun of for loving drama then grew up to all of five feet three to star in topless beach volleyball. From there he catapulted to the top of Hollywood. Then, he went on to dominate the religious world, spreading the joys of scientology to all, become their figurehead and leader. He was brave enough to go onto Oprah to share his religious joy.

    Then, he came back to hollywood to show his dominance and crush the world once more.

    Topless beach volleyball man.

    And penis length. As a pseudo-asian, you should also share our obsession with it.

    Winning!
    You're absolutely right. Look at Charlie Sheen. Man, he's dominated movie acting, television acting, chicks, even had three girlfriends at once. Then, he went on to dominate infectious diseases. This man is the definition of winning. He's the Michael Phelps of television and infectious diseases. Put this man on a box of Wheaties and Condoms.

    You said he was a winner, not me. Don't take your weird insecurities out on me.
