Be “The Bruce Lee” Of Your Success: Karate-Kick Your Fear, Master Your Money, Judo-Chop Your Limitations

I am going to literally show you how to be The Bruce Lee of your career path, and tell you the secret he used for his success…

Including how you can set yourself up for massive success by following the exact blueprint Bruce Lee used to go from unknown, to a world famous actor making millions of dollars and inspiring millions of people.

“A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.”
– Bruce Lee

It’s amazing that people do not know how he became a world famous actor and made millions of dollars, but I’m about to show you what he did…

If you do not follow these steps you probably will
not be The Bruce Lee of your desired career path….

Okay, now I assume you’re ready learn how a relatively unknown Chinese martial artist from Hong Kong became a world famous actor, making millions of dollars, impacting the lives of millions of people, and left an eternal legacy behind him when his life eventually ended…

In January 1969 when Lee was 28 years old, and having minor success in the United States, he was not doing well financially. He had a wife and two children recently born.

It was not where he wanted to be in terms of his career success and financial security.

So what did he do…?

Simply work harder…?


He took out a piece of paper and wrote the following, which he kept in his wallet, took with him everywhere he went and read out loud every single day….

I, Bruce Lee, will be the first highest paid Oriental super star in the United States. In return I will give the most exciting performances and render the best of quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting 1970 I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end of 1980 I will have in my possession $10,000,000. I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness.

No…. This is not a joke….

This is literally what Bruce Lee did in order to take his career to the next level. The rest is history.

He did three things with the paper…
1.) He carried it with him everywhere he went.
2.) He worked everyday to move closer to the vision he’d put onto paper.
3.) He read it at least once a day.

Everyday he was cementing the fantasy deeper into his subconscious mind of how he’d like his life to be.

Cementing an idea into the subconscious mind is exactly how hypnotism works. We know from countless studies that a person can become hypnotized to “moo” like a cow, behave like a dog, and all kinds of other strange things. This is because the hypnotist accesses a person’s subconscious mind and they begin to behave unconsciously in the way the hypnotist suggests. This is exactly what happened when Bruce Lee wrote down his dreams and goals and read them everyday—he was cementing them into his unconscious mind, slowly but surely he hypnotized himself.

Now I am going to explain to you why you will want to follow Bruce Lee’s example as soon as you finish this blog, and I am going to show you exactly how to do it.

First though, this is not philosophy…

This is neuroscience and psychology.

Psychologists tell us some 90% of our lives are unconscious.

This means that basically you are on autopilot based off what’s in your subconscious mind. To help you understand how powerful it is to suggest your dreams to your subconscious mind through the process of writing out your Definite Chief Objective, just as Bruce Lee did, I’ll break down the respective functions of the subconscious and conscious mind.

Conscious Mind…

This is the part of you that thinks and reasons. Your free will lies here. This is the part of your mind that can accept or reject any idea. For example, if I tell you the sky has never been blue and it’s always red, you will reject that because you are consciously aware that’s untrue.

No person or circumstance can cause you to think about thoughts or ideas you do not choose. The “thoughts” you choose consciously eventually determine what goes into your subconscious mind.

As you accept a thought, it is impressed upon the second part of your personality, your subconscious mind.

This is why every great achiever, leader, sage, philosopher, and spiritual/religious teacher has told us, “You become what you think about.”

Now that you understand the basic functions of the conscious mind, I’ll explain the subconscious, or unconscious part of your mind briefly.

Then we’ll send you on your way with your very own personal Chief Definite Aim, like Bruce Lee, so you can dominate your dreams, karate-kick fear, and judo-chop every challenge that stands between you and your desired lifestyle….

Sub-Conscious Mind…

This part of you is certainly the most magnificent and mysterious. Every thought your conscious mind chooses to accept, this unconscious part must accept … it has no ability to reject. This is the part of the mind that hypnotists access when they get you to behave in unconscious ways.

Any thought you consciously or unconsciously impress upon the subconscious over and over, becomes fixed in this part of your personality. Fixed ideas will then continue to express themselves without any conscious assistance, until they are replaced or overrode with another idea or image. (Fixed ideas are commonly referred to as habits and beliefs).


Why Are You Telling Me This?

It’s important to understand the subconscious and conscious minds, because then it begins to make sense as to why Bruce Lee wrote out his ambitions for life in a piece of paper and read it everyday.

You maybe wondering, why did he do that again?

Because the subconscious accepts and creates as your reality whatever is continuously impressed upon it. Just as a hypnotist commands your subconscious to bark like a dog, you can change the image of who you are and what’s possible for your life.

By writing your DEFINITE CHIEF AIM you are telling your subconscious mind what to create instead of having it create at default of what your past has been.

Now It’s Your Turn To Become Bruce Lee of Your Career Path And Master Your Wealth, Health, Happiness, and Love.

1.) Ask yourself, “What do I really want?”
2.) Ask yourself, “Is it true? Do I really want this, or am I settling and not using my conscious mind and imagination to really aim high with my marvelous mind?”
3.) Write out what comes to mind.
4.) Rewrite it just how Bruce Lee did… (example…)

I, Bruce Lee, will be the first highest paid Oriental super star in the United States. In return I will give the most exciting performances and render the best of quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting 1970 I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end of 1980 I will have in my possession $10,000,000. I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness.

Now that you’ve written out your aims for your life, you’ve begun to suggest it to your subconscious mind.

Most people never even do this. But if you actually study the world’s most successful people, almost all of them have done this…

Arnold Schwarzenegger says in his autobiography that one of the keys to his success was that he wrote out his dreams onto index cards and carried them around with him ever since he was just a young kid, all the way through his years as Governor of California.

If you go to the Smithsonian Institute and you see the Edison Exhibit, you’ll see his journal where he wrote a statement just like Bruce Lee did. He said, “I shall discover and deliver for the world a system of illumination to completely eliminate our current requirement on oil-lamp illumination.”

The truth is that most of the greatest achievers ever have written out a vision for their life. It’s not just Bruce Lee. It’s not just Thomas Edison. It’s not just YOU, once you do it…

It’s hundreds of the greatest achievers of human potential ever.

Now most of these people had no idea of exactly how they would make these dreams happen, they just knew they wanted it.

That’s the first step….

So the question is what do you want…?

What do you really want…?

Write it out on paper just how I’ve suggested and watch your life get even better than it already is. You can achieve good fortune, overcome fear, and become a force of nature.
