15 Quotes by Bruce Lee that will still inspire you today

Quotes-by-Bruce-leeBruce Lee is best remembered for his roles in popular martial arts movies of the early 1970s, such as Enter the Dragon.

Born Lee Jun-fan in San Francisco in 1940, he was a Hong Kong-American actor, director, martial artist, martial arts instructor and philosopher brought up in Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Bruce Lee is considered by commentators, critics, media and indeed other martial artists to be the most influential martial artist of all time.

He also remains a pop culture icon of the 20th century, who bridged the gap between East and West.

Sadly Bruce Lee died of a cerebral oedema in Hong Kong in 1973 but subsequently, he was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century. For a martial artist, that’s fairly impressive don’t you think?

Despite his untimely death, he continues to influence people and there are several websites dedicated to Bruce Lee around the world.

In his relatively short life, he was credited with many inspirational quotes, so I thought today I’d share a few of these with you dear reader.

So here are 15 quotes by Bruce Lee that will still inspire you today.

Success Secrets: How your life can be better than it is now

Success-SecretsHow is life for you? Perhaps you’re lucky and you have a great job, a nice house, a fancy car, a loving family and a lifestyle which is the envy of your neighbours? If that’s you then well done but there’s nothing for you here. If you’ve achieved all that then you don’t need any success secrets from me.

If it is you then I must tell you, you’re in a minority. However, I’m guessing you’re not part of that minority? Am I right? Statistically, you’re much more likely to be a member of life’s majority. Those people with a desire for their lives to be better but who for whatever reason cannot translate that desire into something that’s better.

Statistically, you’re more likely to be part of that group of people constantly on the lookout for success secrets. People searching for the ‘secret sauce‘ if you like. You’re not alone of course but I hope this post will help you.

Why is it that some people are successful and others are not?

What secrets do the successful know that the unsuccessful do not know?

Can anyone be successful? The simple answer is yes.

However unsuccessful people tend to think it’s not possible, so they don’t try. They just accept what they’re given as if that’s all they can expect from life. It’s almost as if they say to themselves, this is all life has for me. It’s like they believe that there are no success secrets.

Well, I must tell you now, if it’s not obvious to you, life can be better. Life is what you make it. Within reason, you can be whatever you want to be. You can have more. Other people do, so why not you?

Right now, where you are is where you are. It doesn’t really matter. What matters is that you don’t have to remain where you are. You’re not a tree, you can move. You can change. You can decide that your life will be different. And you can work towards something that’s better.

Your life really can be better than it is and you can be better than you are. However for it to be better you have to believe it can be better and you have to believe that you can turn it around. In fact, you have to believe in success secrets.

One thing all successful people have in common is a belief that something different can happen and they can make it happen. They don’t allow anyone to tell them it can’t be done. They know what they want and they’re determined to get it.

Some might consider them delusional but successful people see it as self-belief. They won’t accept that they cannot do something because intuitively they know, if they try hard enough, then anything is possible. If they decide what they want and strive for what they want, they just know that somehow they can get it. The price is determination and hard work but they’re willing to pay that price.

Successful people know that when faced with an elephant you cannot swallow it whole. However, it can be eaten one bite at a time.

If you’re building a wall then you don’t start with the entire wall. You start with a single brick and you get that right. Then once that’s securely in place you move on to the next brick and then the next and the next and so on. Pretty soon if you stick at it long enough you’ll have the whole wall.

Successful people know that they can’t get to where they want to go in one single leap. They know you get there gradually, one step at a time. And if you want to be successful, it starts with taking the first step.

Readers familiar with Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) will know that if you want to be successful you look for successful people, identify what they do and then copy that model. The idea is that if it worked for them then there’s a good chance it will work for you too. Most successful people will have had role models they’ve copied at various times.

So if you want to be successful look around for successful people and listen to what they have to say. Most people would accept that Will Smith is successful. In the video included here, he shares his thoughts on the secrets of success.

His observations are interesting and well worth a few minutes of your time. I can recommend them to you.

Further Reading:

An article of this type can only ever be a taster on the subject but there are plenty of good books which will enlighten you further on the subject of success secrets. For instance, one I suggest you explore is:-

The 21 Success Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires: How to Achieve Financial Independence Faster and Easier Than You Ever Thought Possible (The Laws of Success Series) by Brian Tracy

It all depends on how you define ‘success’ of course. However if for you success is all about achieving financial independence as fast and easy as possible then this book could be for you.

Remember it’s never easy. It requires hard work and determination. However whilst it’s not easy, it can be easier and this book will tell you how. You can explore it by clicking on the link.

So go on, CLICK NOW and check it out whilst it’s fresh in your mind.

7 inspirational quotes about success to motivate you

7-inspirational-quotes-about-successIf you’re looking for inspirational quotes about success then first think about what success really means to you. Your definition of success will not necessarily be the same as someone else’s.

Success to you might be nothing more than being happy and content.

That’s admirable of course, and there’s nothing wrong with having that as your goal. However, someone else might be looking for a lot more from life.

For them, success might be an Olympic gold medal or winning the Super Bowl.

So, before you pursue success, you would do well to reflect on what it means to you and why you want it. Knowing your ‘why?‘ is half the battle, when it comes to achieving success.

Success is something that is desired by many people but which only a few truly achieve.

To be successful, you have to want it so bad that it hurts. That’s why it’s important to know your why. If you know your ‘why?’ you will be able to bear any ‘how?’.

You must be focused on your goals; you must be disciplined; you must be determined; you must be prepared to make sacrifices; you must be prepared to work very, very hard; and you must possess self-belief too.

Remember; nothing worth having ever comes easy.

If you want success then you must be prepared to pay the price in blood, sweat and tears. And that price must always be paid first.

You’ll get nothing before you’ve paid the price. You’ll find that even people who are an ‘overnight success’ have spent years honing their skills before favourable circumstances provided them with an opportunity to shine like a star.

Nothing happens overnight. You’ve got to work at it and keep working at it.

And remember this too; you’ll experience failure from time to time and you’ll question whether you’re good enough over and over again.

The temptation to quit will be overwhelming at times. You’ll be constantly tempted to settle for an easier life. Don’t!

Success can be achieved if you stick at it and just keep going. Focus on the prize.

In the words of the late, great Muhammad Ali, I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’

Success can be yours if you work hard and hang on in there until you achieve whatever it is that you want to achieve. Just go for it!

And remember also; it’s better to try and fail than never having tried at all. At least you won’t spend the rest of your life wondering what might have been.

Here are seven interesting and inspirational quotes about success.

Inspirational quotes about success:

  1. Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers, you cannot be successful or happy. ~Norman Vincent Peale
  2. Commitment is a big part of what I am and what I believe. How committed are you to winning? How committed are you to being a good friend? To being trustworthy? To being successful? How committed are you to being a good father, a good teammate, a good role model? There’s that moment every morning when you look in the mirror: Are you committed, or are you not? ~LeBron James
  3. Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps, they need to take to get them closer to the fulfilment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them. ~Jack Canfield
  4. The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will. ~Vince Lombardi
  5. At the end of the day, you are solely responsible for your success and your failure. And the sooner you realize that you accept that, and integrate that into your work ethic, you will start being successful. As long as you blame others for the reason you aren’t where you want to be, you will always be a failure. ~Erin Cummings
  6. Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together. ~Paul Ryan
  7. Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success. ~Thomas J. Watson

7 inspirational quotes about love to help you reflect

7 Inspirational Quotes About LoveWe all need love and we need to feel love, wouldn’t you agree dear reader?

Human beings are emotional and social creatures and we all need other people.

We need a sense that we matter to other people. And of course, other people matter to us too. Our family, our friends and our loved ones.

We feel love for those who matter to us and our greatest love is for that special person who matters most.

Our greatest love is felt for that person in whose company we always feel a sense of contentment.

If you’ve found that special person then perhaps you should get down on your knees and thank God for the privilege because you’re lucky indeed. Not everyone is quite so lucky.

Here are 7 inspirational quotes about love to help you reflect on this complex emotion.

However, remember this; love alone won’t sustain a relationship.

That requires hard work and being prepared to compromise, frequently.

Nevertheless, without love, a relationship has no chance at all.

If you truly love someone, you’ll want what’s best for them and you’ll be prepared to set aside your own needs occasionally to ensure that their needs are being satisfied too.

In a successful relationship, all parties must feel their needs are respected and being met, at least most of the time.

Love means you can’t have your own way all of the time.

Inspirational quotes about love:

  1. Where there is love there is life. ~Mahatma Gandhi
  2. There’s only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved. ~George Sand
  3. A flower cannot blossom without sunshine and man cannot live without love. ~Max Muller
  4. Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye. ~H Jackson Brown, Jr
  5. Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. ~Oscar Wilde
  6. The best thing to hold onto in life is each other. ~Audrey Hepburn
  7. Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. ~Ann Landers

7 inspirational quotes about life to get you thinking

inspirational quotes about lifeWhether we like it or not, life happens to us all.

However, you shouldn’t just let it happen. Ideally, you should be in control. You only get one life, so you have to make sure it’s the life you want.

I firmly believe that life’s what you make it.

There will be times when you cannot be in control, for whatever reason, but being in control should always be your aim.

Not only should you be in control, but you should also be doing those things at which you excel and that you enjoy doing too.

Do the things you’re good at and you’ll have a real chance of success, particularly if you’re determined and you work hard.

The most important thing to remember is that you’ll have just this one life, so you have to live your own life in your own way. Only you can know what’s right for you. You’re the captain of your own ship and you decide where it goes.

Listen not to those who seek to constrain your ambitions, with reasons why you shouldn’t try. Instead, you must listen to your inner self when your instinct says, “I can do this!”

It matters not whether others think you can, as long as you believe you can.

Life’s not a dress rehearsal. It’s the only life you’re going to experience. So make sure you enjoy the experience.

Yes, there’ll be tough times but make sure there are good times too. You won’t live forever but you can make sure you live right now.

Here are 7 inspirational quotes about life which should get you thinking a little.

Inspirational quotes about life:

  1. Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life. ~Omar Khayyam
  2. Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. ~Lao Tzu
  3. Open your eyes and look within. Are you satisfied with the life you’re living? ~Bob Marley
  4. The truth is you don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride and nothing is guaranteed. ~Eminem
  5. If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit. ~Bill Clinton
  6. The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are. ~Joseph Campbell
  7. The hardest years in life are those between ten and seventy. ~Helen Hayes

7 inspirational quotes about attitude to make you think

inspirational quotes about attitudeYour attitude matters dear reader and it matters a lot.

It’s your attitude more than any other personal quality that will dictate how far you go in life.

A bad attitude will get you nowhere, but a good attitude will take you are far as you want to go.

As a hiring manager, the right attitude is the quality I value above all others.

Someone of average ability with a positive, can-do attitude is far more useful to me than a cynical, clever dick with a negative, it can’t be done attitude.

For me, your attitude is more important than your past, your education, your appearance or your skill-set.

All of those things are important of course. However, I can work around them if I have to, as long as you have the right attitude.

A bad attitude will do you no favours at all. You might think you’re being clever but no one else will be impressed, trust me.

The good news is that you can change your attitude any time you choose. Change your attitude and you’ll change your life. You don’t believe me? Then try it and see for yourself.

Attitude is everything; it’s that simple.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about attitude that will help you reflect on the importance of this hugely underrated personal quality dear reader.

Inspirational quotes about attitude:

  1. The only disability in life is a bad attitude. ~Scott Hamilton
  2. Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference. ~Winston Churchill
  3. People may hear your words but they feel your attitude. ~John C. Maxwell
  4. Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character. ~Albert Einstein
  5. There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. That little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative. ~W. Clement Stone
  6. Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. ~Thomas Jefferson
  7. My general attitude to life is to enjoy every minute of every day. I never do anything with a feeling of, ‘Oh God, I’ve got to do this today.’ ~Richard Branson

7 inspirational quotes about happiness

7 quotes about happinessIf I were to conduct a survey of readers on the question of happiness, I’m fairly sure that most people would say that whilst they want to be happy, they have yet to achieve that state of mind consistently.

Why is that do you think?

I think it’s because we’re always chasing what we haven’t got.

Being happy requires us to be content with what we have got. If we’re always chasing more, then by definition we can’t be content with what we’ve got, can we?

So if you want to be happy, then I think the trick is to learn to enjoy whatever it is that you’ve actually got, rather than fretting about those things that you’d like to possess but you don’t right now.

Take pleasure in the moment, whenever you can, and always look for the positives in any situation.

Happiness is a state of mind. You can choose to be happy or not.

It’s all down to the way you choose to look at the world.

You can allow things to bother you or you can say, “I’m not going to worry about stuff I can’t change, I’ll just focus on enjoying my life for what it is and make the best of it.”

Here are 7 inspirational quotes about happiness to help you think about what it all means.

Quotes about happiness:

  1. I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself in. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition. ~Martha Washington
  2. It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere. ~Agnes Repplier
  3. Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions. ~Dalai Lama
  4. Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won’t have to hunt for happiness. ~William E. Gladstone
  5. Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. ~Denis Waitley
  6. There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things that are beyond the power of our will. ~Epictetus
  7. Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present. ~Jim Rohn

Building personal branding for success

Building personal branding for successPersonal branding says something about you. And personal branding for success is something which you should take seriously if your aim is to be successful.

How you present yourself to the world is being judged all the time and people will draw conclusions about you based simply on their perception of you and how you look.

That may not seem fair but in my experience, it’s almost always true. And reputations can often be built largely based on other peoples’ perception of you.

So, is personal branding something that matters to you dear reader?

In your opinion, does it matter what you look like; how you dress; how you speak; or what people see in your digital footprint on social media and elsewhere? Certainly, it should do.

What do you think? Does your reputation matter to you?

Perhaps you believe that the only thing that really matters is the quality of the work that you do?

If that’s true then you may not see the need to worry about your personal branding.

However, I can assure you, you really are being judged all of the time, whether you like it or not.

The importance of personal branding:

Think about it for one moment. Now, how often have you walked into an open plan office area looking for a manager you’ve not met and yet you have no trouble spotting who he or she is, immediately?

Building personal branding for successYou just can’t miss them, can you? There’s just something about them that says, ‘I am the manager!‘ Well, that’s personal branding.

It’s the same thing with social media.

How you conduct yourself within your digital footprint will speak volumes about you and it will have an impact on how you’re perceived by others.

A silly remark on social media about other people or the latest news can prove very costly and may have implications in future years because it could suggest something about your judgement, or lack of it.

Jobs have been lost and people have been forced to resign over ill-judged comments made on social media, often many years before.

So you have to ask yourself, do I really want to be successful in my chosen field?

If you do then you must ensure that your personal branding is consistent with your ambition. To be the one, you must look like the one, in every respect.

You must also promote yourself in the right way, at every opportunity.

Self-promotion is important because it’s all about selling yourself and making sure you’re perceived by the world in the way you’d prefer to be perceived.

If you don’t sell yourself and create the right image for yourself then no one else is going to do it for you, that’s for sure. Constantly working on your personal branding must be part of your strategy for achieving success.

The good news is that with WordPress, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Linked In and other social media channels, it’s never been easier to promote yourself, create the right image, build relationships and tell the world what it is you have to offer.

So the obvious question now is, where do you start on building a personal brand?

Building a personal brand:

In the video below, recorded at TEDxCMU 2011, Jacob Cass presents some interesting and useful ideas as to how you can go about building your personal brand.

This video will provide you with some useful tips and it’s well worth watching.

Further Reading:

One video cannot cover this topic comprehensively, of course, so you might like to consider adding a reference book on the subject to your personal reference library.

Here are three that are worthy of your consideration:-

  1. Introduction To Personal Branding: Ten Steps Toward A New Professional You by Mel Carson
  2. Personal Branding For Dummies by Susan Chritton
  3. KNOWN: The Handbook for Building and Unleashing Your Personal Brand in the Digital Age by Mark Schaefer

You can take a look at each of them by clicking on the appropriate link. Why not take a look right now whilst it’s all fresh in your mind? I hope they prove useful to you.
