Bruce Lee Inspirational Quotes

What is my purpose?
Have you ever asked yourself this question?
People always say follow your passion and you will find your purpose. 
But what if you don't know what your purpose is?

A few years ago, I was on the internet looking at the fashion pictures, when I pressed something by mistake and it redirected me to a page about Bruce Lee. I was about to change the page when I noticed a title : '' Bruce Lee quotes and Bruce Lee philosophy''.
Bruce Lee was one of the greatest martial artists of all time, but did you know he was also a philosopher? He accomplished more in ten years than most people do in a lifetime.
Since I didn't know any of his quotes I decided to read an article. There was a short story I like a lot and now I want to share it with you.

A martial artist asked Bruce to teach him everything he knew about martial arts. 
Bruce held up two cups, both filled with liquid. 
''The first cup,'' said Bruce, ''represents all of your knowledge about martial arts. The second cup,
represents all of my knowledge about martial arts. If you want to fill your cup with my knowledge, 
you must first empty your cup of your knowledge.''

The moral of this story is:
If you want to know what is your purpose in life, you must first empty your mind of all the false purposes you've been taught during your life, including the idea that you might not have purpose at all. Once you become comfortable with overcoming your fears, you will start seeing positive changes and success in your life.  
Don't waste time, instead start slowly moving towards your dreams. You might fail and you might make mistakes along the way, but don't worry, stay positive and before you realize you will find your purpose.
Since reading Bruce Lee story, I often use his quotes as a source of inspiration. 
Get inspired, his words of wisdom will make you think. 


''I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to

''In order to taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup.''

''Choose the positive. You have choice, you are master of your attitude, choose the positive, the
  constructive. Optimism is a faith that leads to success.''

''Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.''

''What is'' is more important than ‘what should be.’ Too many people are looking at ‘what is’
  from a position of thinking ‘what should be’.''

''Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough: we must do.''

''If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.  Make at least 
  one definite move daily toward your goal.''

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

''After all, all knowledge simply means self-knowledge.''

''Simplicity is the key to brilliance.''
