11 inspirational lessons from Bruce Lee

 

 

Bruce Lee was an actor, philosopher, director and film producer, screenwriter and master of martial arts. He was born in November 1940 and died in July 1973 due to cerebral edema.

Many consider Brece Lee one of the most influential martial artists of the twentieth century. Films with his participation brought martial art to a whole new level.

He was a pioneer in the dissemination of Chinese martial arts in the West.

Until today, he is considered a legend. His philosophy is still alive thanks to his fighting style of Jeen Kune Do and his writing.

 

During adolescence, Henri Junttila, the author of the Wake Up Cloud blog, always looked at Bruce Lee. Now he reveals 11 great lessons that this master of martial arts gave him.

A low guy, weighing really little, but seemingly possessing the strength of a lion. He inspired, motivated and showed that we do not have to listen to people who impose restrictions. It is me who decide about my life and what I believe in.

 

Here are 11 great lessons that Bruce Lee taught me:

 

1. Goals

 

"The goal is not always what needs to be achieved. They are often there to have what to aspire for. "

Goals are something that we strive for, which is why it is not worth to be too crazy to achieve them. Focus on the process itself.

If you are crossing a beautiful trail, your goal is to reach the destination point. This does not mean, however, that you can not enjoy the walk or change the direction in which you are going. Be open and flexible.

 

2. Flexibility

 

"Note that it is easy to break even the most powerful tree, while bamboo or willow do not give in, swaying through the wind."

The happiest people in the world are flexible. They do not have ossified views, they do not try to control or manipulate the surroundings to feel happy.

It's good for them with this state of affairs. They accept it, live today and breathe.

If you want to lead a full content, a happy life, be a flexible person and accept things as they are.

 

3. Time

 

"If you love life, do not waste time, because life consists of it."

There is no time for procrastination, for justification, and for giving in to your fears. It can be difficult, but sooner or later you will die. Why not use life in the best way?

Do not waste time. Instead, start a bold journey towards your dreams. There will be failures and mistakes along the way, but stay calm and live today.

 

4. Service

 

"Real life is life for others".

The most satisfying way of life is helping others and enriching their lives. In my case, it started a blog. Thanks to this, I understood how much pleasure it is to help others.

If you can help others while following your passion, you have found the perfect lifestyle.

 

5. Acceptance

 

"Do not think about who is right and who is not or who is better. Do not be for something or against something. "

If you want the world to be better, you should get rid of judging others, superstitions and ossified views. You do not have to be right or be wrong. You do not have to be better than someone else.

Everything is as we see it. If you do not like it, you can do something different, but do not spread negative energy, because it never bodes well.

 

6. Determination

 

"I am not afraid of a man who has practiced 10000 kicks once, but who has practiced one hit 10,000 times."

If you want to achieve the result and be good at something, you have to stop doing a million things at once. Take care of something and follow it.

Most people give up before seeing the first results. They give up too soon. Do not be one of these people!

 

7. Creativity

 

"Treat an out of office situation as an opportunity. Treat no restrictions as a restriction. "

We impose restrictions on ourselves. Even if the guru claims that something is impossible, it does not mean that it really is. He is only a human; the same as you.

Remember - most of the great people have heard that they will not achieve something, and yet they are pushing forward and doing it against all odds. Listen to yourself and what impresses you.

 

8. Simplicity

 

"Simplicity is the key to greatness."

Simplify your life and get rid of what is unnecessary. They tell us that we must consume and accumulate material goods.

Fortunately for us, it turns out that it is not. Happiness comes from us, not from outside. Simplicity provides clarity and peace of mind.

 

9. Find your way

 

"Absorb what is useful. Reject what is not. Add what characterizes only you. "

At the beginning, learn from those who are your authority. Later, when you become better and start to succeed, take what works and reject what is ineffective.

We are all unique, so you have to find your niche and start listening to the inner voice. Follow your heart. In which direction is it pulling?

 

10. Act

 

"Knowledge is not enough. This knowledge should be used. Willingness is not enough. It should work. "

You can acquire a lot of knowledge, but if you never take action, you will not achieve anything. You will never have crystal clarity, hence it is necessary to face doubts and uncertainties.

You definitely want to be 100% sure that you will succeed, but something just does not exist. In order to get to where you want, you should move on.

 

11. Ego

 

"Martial arts are the ultimate form of self-awareness. It is not about finishing the boy in front of you but in killing your ego, fear and anxiety.

Everything you do is about your ego. This is the source of concern. He wants us to be in a safe and proper place where it is comfortable.

If you listen to the heart, you know that it is not your way. Follow your dreams and do it bravely. Accept the inner fear and go forward.

Life is about living, so start living and follow your passion.
