Bruce Lee quotes have been an inspiration to many around the world. He is known for his martial arts skills but I see him more as a philosopher. I have learnt a lot by reading his biographies and following his way of life.
Our friends at OldQuotes have provided us with these 10 inspirational Bruce Lee quotes for living a successful life. These quotes and tips have certainly been influential in my life as well.
1“A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.”
The photo that you have in your bedroom of your ideal is a guiding compass. You have to decide when to stop. Of course carrying on should be the only option but one should never be disheartened in giving it the next shot.
2“I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you are not in this world to live up to mine.”
Don’t take a word what critics have to say. Everyone is a critic in themselves. Most unconventional personalities shined most conventionally. Don’t be a person which, in pleasing everyone, no one pleases.
3“A wise man can often learn more than a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.”
Being wise is learning from experience and still better to learn from a foolish one. To be wise accept that there is then learn and grow. To start understanding ask basic questions first arrive at complex ones yourself. Only a fool thinks that he knows everything.
4“Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.”
Accept your weaknesses to yourself and to others. It often is difficult at times but will help you in the long run.
5“Knowledge will give you power but character respect.”
Everyone is born with an innate personality but not with a developed character. The character needs time to develop. Knowledge comes from your experience. Knowledge becomes common to everyone but the character is your identification and it can work both ways giving you respect or despicability, only one at a time.
6“Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.”
This one speaks for itself. Don’t be a follower be a leader. Express your opinion even though how it sounds, cause that will improve with time. Things are different for every person, the same might not work for you as well as it worked for the other.
7“The possession of anything begins in the mind.”
Most of the battles are won before they are fought, is a saying by sun tzu. Planning is what makes the difference. Possession is victory and for that the master planner always win.
8“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing you’ll never get it done.”
We are all thinkers. We think then act what should be done is act first and then think what went wrong and then try again. Just a change of attitude to mend one’s life, nothing more nothing less.
9“If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made of.”
Set your priorities straight. Act on them. Be ethical and don’t let your will swindle. Make opportunities don’t wait for them. Time wasted will not get remembered by us only the one which made us tougher will.
10“As you think, so shall you become.”
Dream right, plan right & then act right. Fill yourself with belief, that you are the one. That is the first step towards achieving anything you want. Don’t compare. Making even others believe & think what you think & believe and let them become that, is the true definition of inspiration. Thinking what to become is inspiration acting on oneself by oneself.
