Striking Thoughts

Bruce Lee on The Mind

Command Your Mind

You are the commander of your mind. I've always been buffeted by circumstances because i thought of myself as a human being affected by outside conditioning. Now I realize that I am the power that commands the feeling of my mind and from which circumstances grow.

Bruce Lee on Health

The Joy of Exercise

I really dig exercise. When I'm jogging early in the morning, boy! It's sure refreshing. Although Hong Kong is one of the most crowded places in the world, I'm suprised how peaceful it can be in the morning. Sure, there are people, but I become oblivious to them while I am running.

The Therapeutic Benefits of Jogging

Jogging is not only a form of exercise to me, but it is also a form of relaxation. It is my own hour every morning when I can be alone with my thoughts.

On Diet

Only eat what your body requires, and don't become carried away with foods that don't benefit you.

Bruce Lee on Adversity

Adversity is Beneficial

Prosperity is apt to prevent us from examining our conduct; but adversity leads us to think properly of our state, and so is beneficial to us.

Adversity Causes The Mind to Think

In a time when everything goes well, my mind is pampered with enjoyment, possessiveness, etc. Only in times of adversity, privation, or mishap, does my mind function and think properly of my state. This close examination of self strengthens my mind and leads me to understand and be understood.

Do What You Have to Do

To be able to do the things we want sometimes requires the performance of a few we don't. Just as maintaining of good health may require the taking of unpleasant medicine, so the condition of being able to do the things we enjoy often requires the performance of a few we don't. Remember my friend that it is not what happens that counts, it is how you react to them. Your mental attitude determines what you make of it, either a stepping stone or stumbling block.

Bruce Lee on Success

The Price

He who wants success should learn how to fight, to strive, and to suffer. You can acquire a lot in life, if you are prepared to give up a lot to get it.

It's a Journey

Remember, success is a journey, not a destination. Have faith in your ability. You will do just fine.

3 Keys to Success

Persistence, persistence, and persistence. The power can be created and maintained through daily practice - continuous effort.

Bruce Lee on Detachment 

Holding On Prevents Growth

Tension: from NOW to THEN. People try to hold onto the sameness. This holding on prevents growth.

Confront the Problem to be Free of It

Let yourself go with the disease, be with it, keep company with it, this is the way to get rid of it.

I’m SJ. I’m a fitness enthusiast and published author. I transformed my body from a skinny fat 135lbs with 18% body fat to a solid 192lbs at 8% body fat. I became qualified in a field I was passionate about. I founded several online businesses that allow me to pursue ideas and projects in my life that I am passionate about without having to constantly worry about money. I published several eBooks explaining the training and dieting techniques I used to achieve the body I have today. I learnt a plethora of new information on dieting and fitness by reading and applying what I read, to find out what does work and what doesn’t work, because as I’m sure you’ve noticed the health and fitness industry is full of non-sense claims and BS. I found out what was true and what worked for me and applied that knowledge. And you bet I had fun during the whole process.
