Our Favorite Bruce Lee Success Quotes and How You Can Apply Them in Your Life

The quotes listed below are just some of the philosophies that we’ve personally used as entrepreneurs. Hopefully these quotes will also help to inspire, motivate, and encourage you to go further after your dreams as well. Without further ado, let’s begin.

1. “Absorb what is useful. Discard what is not. Add what is uniquely your own. Simplicity is the key to brilliance.”

The main message in this quote is that although it’s important to learn from others, you must also take action for yourself to discover what works and what doesn’t. Only then will you be able to create your own unique path to success. Remember, life is all about growth and evolution. To grow and evolve, people must be willing to experiment with new things to determine what true success means to them. Through trial and error, you’ll learn about what works and that keeping things simple is the most efficient, and effective, approach towards success.

2. “To hell with circumstances, І create opportunities.”

Rather than blaming others for your current situation in life, you must take control of your own life. In the end, it’s up to you to create your own opportunities. To live your dream life, you must take the necessary actions to not only overcome negative situations in life but also use the lessons learned to create new positive opportunities. Don’t blame others if things don’t work out. Just learn from those mistakes and continue to move forward with no loss of enthusiasm towards achieving your goals and objectives.

3. “І fear not the man that practiced 10,000 kicks once, but І fear the man that practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

In this quote, Bruce Lee is stating that people should not be too scattered in life. Although doing so many things will allow you to be adequate at some things, you’ll never reach your full potential and be great at any one thing. Find your niche and follow your passion. Once determined, focus a majority of your energy and practice on refining your art until it’s perfected. Be just like Bruce Lee who found his passion in martial arts, he continued to practice and perfect his craft by learning from other martial arts disciplines over the years, prior to creating his own unique martial arts style – Jeet Kune Dо (The Way of the Intercepting Fist). Find what makes happy and practice it until you’re the best in that marketplace.

Hopefully the quotes listed above will help to inspire and motivate you towards achieving your passion and ambitions in life. Remember, it is your responsibility to create your own opportunities in life and pave your own unique path to success.

So don’t waste your most precious asset, time, and start creating your dream life now!
