Bruce Lee was much more than a martial arts film star who died young. He was an innovator in his sport,a ferocious trainer,a philosopher and an incredible athlete. He struggled against, and overcame, the many obstacles he encountered during his all too brief life. There were times he became discouraged but he persevered and found a way to achieve what he desired. An example of this was when he suffered a serious back injury that required he wear a brace for 6 months,Lee used this time to author the book that eventually became, Tao of Jeet Kune Do, a work that summarized his martial arts philosophy and viewpoints. Bruce Lee believed life was to be lived to its fullest and that an ideal life was one that offered challenges. What follows is another take on the subject of goals: "A goal is not always meant to be reached,it often serves simply as something to aim at." Although we may believe that we'll eventually reach the goal(s) we have set for ourselves,sometimes it doesn't happen. The good thing is that having a goal(s) gives you a purpose and life to your training that you will never experience if you just go "out there" day after day.
