Some Great Motivators From Bruce Lee

bruce leeThere are so many "gurus" out there that spout daily affirmations and mantras to get us to  success. Many of them are great, many just re-hashed words that have long since lost their meanings. But today I came across a list of quotes from a surprising source and the directness and simplicity of the statements really spoke to me! I'm going to reproduce them here posting this unintentionally, on his birthday!

BE Positive

1. "Choose the positive. You have a choice. You are the master of your attitude. Choose the positive, the constructive. Optimism is a faith that leads to success.”

AIM HIGH

2. "A goal is not always meant to be reached. It often serves simply as something to aim at.”

It's all in YOUR Hands
3. "To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.”
you are what you think
4. "As you think, so shall you become.”

ACT NOW

5. "If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.”

Simplify

6. "It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.”

Don't Live to Please Everyone Else

7. "I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.”

Flexibility will Get You Through

8. "Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.”

APPLY what you've learned

9. "Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.”

(Goes along with #6) Focus Your Energy

10. "Simplicity is the key to brilliance.”

Bruce Lee shows us yet again, how our martial art training benefits us in all areas of life.
