Bruce Lee | Keys to Greatness


If Bruce Lee jokes are not enough to affirm his greatness just look at his accomplishments:
Bruce Lee does not get sea sick,
the sea gets Bruce Lee sick.
            • Sidekick a 300 pound punching bag so hard that it would fly up and hit the ceiling.
            • Snatch a dime out of a person’s hand and replace it with a penny before they closed their hand. 
            • Do one handed push ups using a thumb and index finger.  Do one handed chin ups 50 times.
            • Created a unique form of Martial Arts called Jeet Kune Do
            • Wrote, produced, and stared in over 20 movies​
While reading through some of Bruce Lee’s quotes, I realized this guy had a lot to say about how to achieve personal greatness.

1.  "TO HELL THIS CIRCUMSTANCES, I CREATE OPPORTUNITIES."
No matter who you are every guy finds himself in crappy situations.  Some guys, however, are just looking for an easy life.  If great things have not been handed down to them, they simply will give up and not try.  Not Bruce Lee.  He created opportunities.  Next time you find yourself struggling, realize that with effort you can create your own opportunities in life.


2. "IF YOU THINK A THING IS IMPOSSIBLE, YOU WILL MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE."

To be honest I'm not much of a "believe it and it will mysteriously happen" kind of a guy.  But the truth is, if you believe something can happen you will work your butt off trying to make it happen.  If you don’t believe, you won't even start. It's that simple.  Every dude that wants to succeed must first start by believing that amazing things can take place. 

3. "IF YOU ALWAYS PUT LIMIT ON EVERYTHING YOU DO, PHYSICALLY OR ANYTHING ELSE, IT WILL SPREAD INTO YOUR WORK AND INTO YOUR LIFE."

Limits are a good thing for our safety, but you could be a guy who is ruled by limitations.  Some men allow everything they do to be ruled by their doubt.  If you constantly think there are limitations to your work and life it will spread like a disease. You always remain just average.

4. "IF YOU SPEND TO MUCH TIME THINKING ABOUT A THING, YOU WILL NEVER GET IT DONE."

I personally know from my experience that thinking too long on something and avoiding choice is usually procrastination and a form of laziness and fear.  Plan, decide, do.

5. "IN THE MIDDLE OF DIFFICULTY LIES OPPORTUNITY."

When faced with difficulties, one of two things will happen.  It could prove to be your undoing or  it could become an opportunity for you to learn something new and succeed.  The choice is yours.
