What Bruce Lee Can Teach You About Goal Setting

1 comment

What exactly Bruce Lee can teach us on goal setting? There are many things that we can learn from this Ultimate Legend of Kung Fu but what really captivated me was his ability to set goals and achieve them by using affirmations. If you want to learn more about Bruce Lee, check this out. He mastered this technique which he learned from a self development guru, Napolean Hill, the famous author of Think and Grow Rich. As many are aware of this famous book, there are some important principles Napolean Hill taught us in this money magnet book. One of the main important money rule that he taught us was setting goals. We can see this in A Definite Chief Aim chapter where he will give a six steps rules to set goals easily.

Now how does Napolean Hill related to Bruce Lee.
They are cousins actually. Do not get surprised for they told me personally. There was some kind of blueprint error. All right enough of nasty jokes it is serious time. They are related as master and student. Napolean Hill in his Think and Grow Rich book taught us how to set goals in six steps while Bruce Lee applied it. Bruce Lee learned this knowledge from Napolean Hill's book.

How Bruce Lee Knew About This?
Whether you believe or not, Bruce Lee, the ultimate fighter loves to read books a lot. Yes, especially personal development books. If he is alive now sure he will be looking for blogs that provides personal development articles and subscribe to them. He was a keen learner and he had a library of books. If there are people who made money from him, it must be from the selling of their books to Bruce Lee.

What about his goal setting technique?
All right please be patience, here we go now. This was sourced two years before his greatest hit The Big Boss where he once mentioned his personal affirmation in 1969. Check out this amazing affirmation.

I, Bruce Lee, will be the highest paid Oriental superstar in the United States. In return, I will give the most exciting performances and render the best quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting in 1970, I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end of 1989 I will have in my possession $10,000,000. Then I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness.

It is amazing that he really achieved everything that is stated in his personal affirmation. If you can analyze Bruce Lee's personal affirmation, you can see that he was so precise in setting goals until he even managed to set the time limit and also the period. He was so keen to get the exact amount of money he stated. Now this is where we must agree and bow to his success for he achieved what he truly desired. I Love you Bruce Lee.

How You Can Apply This In Your Life
This is the perfect moment for you to analyze and apply whatever he stated in his personal affirmation. I will give out a sample of the copy of his affirmation and you can write down your goals accordingly. There are two person we must thank to. One is Napolean Hill for creating such an amazing method and Bruce Lee for proving that this method works as strong as a punch from him. Remember again that ideas will work for you only when you work on them. Apply them my friend. I will end this post with a sample of an affirmation (based from Bruce Lee's Personal Affirmation) that you can use for your self and also with an inspiring quote from Bruce Lee. Good Luck In Achieving Your Goals.

I, (your name), will be (your goal as precise as you can). In return, I will give( what you intend to give in return to attain your goal and make sure you are honest in giving.) Starting in (a definite date), I will achieve ( your result of attaining your goal ) and I will have in my possession( the amount of money that you want.) Then I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness. ( here you can add extra fulfillment that you will get by attaining your goal )

Wish You Happiness and Success,

Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.
