One of the most inspirational quotes that I have come across is “You must accept the fact that there is no help but self-help. I cannot tell you how to gain freedom since freedom exists within you.” by the late Bruce Lee.
This quote really resonates with me, as do so many other quotes by the legendary Bruce Lee.
Defying The Odds
Bruce Lee managed to defy the odds to become a Hollywood Martial Arts acting legend. He struggled to break into the Hollywood movie scene.
At that time he was the most talented martial artist and fight scene choreographer. He always got the side part in productions that he auditioned for. He was given the side part of Kato in the Green Hornet TV serial.
His struggles to make it into the Hollywood movie scene did not lead to a break through, so he moved on. He managed to build up a cult following in the Hong Kong, Kung Fu movie industry. He was offered star roles by Golden Harvest in their productions.
Bruce Lee’s fame in the Hong Kong action movie scene attracted the attention of Warner Brothers. This led to a joint venture between Golden Harvest and Warner Brothers giving the world “Enter The Dragon“. Bruce Lee played one of the leading roles along with John Saxon and Jim Kelly.
This was the movie that put Bruce Lee on the Hollywood action movie map. Enter The Dragon has become a cult classic. I have watched it multiple times. It is sad that Bruce Lee passed away before his 33rd birthday.
As a teenager Bruce Lee got into many fights and had a lot of people after him. Growing up in British occupied Hong Kong was tough. The indigenous Chinese population were treated as second class citizens in their own land.
The Fighting Spirit
Bruce Lee’s fighting spirit led him to become a student of the legendary Wing Chun Master, Yip Man. After his Wing Chun training, he moved to the USA as he was born there. Bruce Lee was a US citizen by birth and decided to make it his home again.
He studied Philosophy whilst doing various part-time jobs to fund his studies. He was a perfectionist, he trained is mind, body and spirit. Whilst studying for his Philosophy degree, he started to teach some of his fellow students Kung Fu.
Bruce Lee also met his wife to be Linda Lee whilst studying at University. After graduating, Bruce Lee started to teach Martial Arts, and offered to train non-Chinese students, which was frowned upon by the Chinese Kung Fu Masters is the USA.
Bruce Lee believed in real equality and had respect for people of all races. He opened the doors of Chinese Martial Arts to the world.
He had to accept challenges from prominent Chinese Kung Fu Masters to gain the right to continue teaching non-Chinese students.
His dedication and will power won through and resulted in the birth of his own Martial Art Style “Jeet Kune Do“. Roughly translated in English as “Way of the Intercepting Fist“.
Bruce Lee took what is useful from various Martial Arts around the World to formulate his own style. In life we have to seek knowledge from various sources to enable us to reach our desired goal.
Leave Your Legacy
Bruce Lee has left behind his teaching for everyone to use in the development of their mind, body and spirit. Just one person can impact the world greatly.
What is going to be your legacy?
I am studying as much as I can on topics related to mind science and success programming, as I would like to empower as many people as I can with the knowledge that I leave behind.
I have decided to gather the knowledge and apply it in my life and pass onto others the methods and techniques that actually work.
We all have a purpose in life, that divine purpose is to serve and empower others. Many people are driven by the hunger of power and money. It is only a small number of people that use this power and money to serve humanity.
What we should all consider is that power and wealth are to be used in this world. You came to this world with nothing, and you will leave this world with nothing.
Leave something that will benefit others once you have gone. It can be in the form of knowledge or a charitable organization that helps the less fortunate.
There are many dictators in the world hungry for power and wealth, but a small number of philanthropist that actually want to make the world a better place for everyone.
You can do more in this world to help others if you are wealthy than if you are poor. Make it a priority to become wealthy and use this wealth to make positive changes to the lives of as many people as possible.
It is hard to do much in this world without money. You can only help the poor by becoming rich, and teaching them how to create financial freedom.
Money and knowledge should be circulated, the problems in the world are a result of hoarding money and knowledge. There are many monopolies operated by the global elite to siphon all the money and keep it within their group. They also want to keep knowledge among themselves by operating within secret societies.
All this so called secret knowledge is accessible via deep thought. Nothing can be hidden from a person who operates at a higher frequency.
Once people move away from operating from a vibrational frequency of greed and jealousy, the world will start to become a better place. The frequencies of love, peace and harmony can end the man made problems in this world.
You can continue living the life you have become accustomed to or you can make a decision to make a transformation. It all start with making a decision to do something about the circumstances that you are not happy with.
Like the quote from Bruce Lee “You must accept the fact that there is no help but self-help. I cannot tell you how to gain freedom since freedom exists within you.”
In life you need to take charge and initiate the transformation. Once you start on the journey towards creating the lifestyle you desire, there will be many windows of opportunity opening up for you.
I cannot tell you how to reach the freedom that you truly desire, I can only guide you towards tools and techniques, you need to make the ultimate decision.
You need to look within yourself to find the motivation to enable you to transform your lifestyle. Don’t wait for anyone or any event to come to your rescue. You need to focus on your dream and take the actions necessary to transform it into your reality.
