Courage is not the absence of fear; it is the ability to act in the presence of fear.

Do not be restricted by forms

To be successful, your mind and body should have the ability to flow and adapt to any situation. 

There should be less rigidity and structure in strategy and more flexibility and mobility.

Kick dogma out of your life

Bruce didn’t subscribe to a dogma of any kind.

Although he was an avid reader of religion, philosophy, and martial arts, he viewed religious or philosophical ideologies at best only as signposts pointing to the truth, but not as the truth itself.

Death of the ego means we are open to criticism. We are embracing the process of learning to develop our abilities.

“Do not think about winning or losing, do not think about pride and pain. (…) The biggest mistake is to anticipate the outcome of the fight. You should not think about whether it ends in victory or defeat. Let nature take its course, and your weapons will be used at the right time.“
