Bruce Lee was — and is — more than a martial artist. He is a cultural icon. He smashed through negative stereotypes, endured extreme physical injury, emotional stress, and major setbacks to emerge triumphant, a renowned martial arts champion. He authored his own unique martial arts form. This kickass gladiator was born with a sickly, weak body, but he didn’t recognize limitations. Lee honed his small body into a large, formidable weapon.
He aspired to make movies at a time when Asians were cast as meek gardeners and house servants — the Hollywood film industry rejected him. Undaunted, Lee took his productions to Hong Kong and became a huge star. When onscreen Bruce Lee vanquished bad guys, armed with only hands, feet and badassitude, viewers knew that real-life Bruce Lee could do all of that and more.
Lee’s life is an inspiration to anyone who seeks personal transformation. He embraced simplicity and espoused the idea that there are no limits. Take courage from Bruce the badass! Accept no limits to your recovery, healing, and kickass personal transformation!
“If you always put a limit on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” — Bruce Lee
“It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.” — Bruce Lee
