Bruce Lee Taught us the Power of a Mission!

Tuesday, December 25th, 2018

Bruce Lee, Enter the DragonBruce Lee was on a Mission to prove Kung Fu was the greatest form of martial arts in the World!

This Mission affected every Decision he made, and this set a powerful example for others.

What important lesson can we learn about the power of a mission from Bruce Lee?

 

Missions Attract Followers

Bruce naturally had the intelligence and charisma to convert enemies into friends, who became followers. Kimura had been the leading Karate master in Seattle who taught Karate at his Dojo. However, after being graciously defeated by Bruce Lee, Kimura showed wisdom by realizing that Kung Fu was in fact superior to Karate. He then embarked on a campaign to persuade Bruce Lee to teach him Kung Fu.

As Kimura spent more time with Bruce Lee, he learned about his burning passion to prove that Kung Fu was the greatest form of martial arts in the world. Bruce Lee set a powerful example by always following his mission and allowing it to determine his course of action. His dedication was so unwavering it was able to not only attract followers but also motivate them to make sacrifices for the cause!

Bruce Lee’s vision was so powerful that it prompted Kimura to take the enormous step of selling his Dojo to fund the Kung Fu school, against Lee’s wishes! He took massive action with no thought of the loss of prestige this would cause in the Karate community, nor did he give thought to the great financial risk he was taking. Kimura acted selflessly because he had come under the spell of Bruce Lee and his Dream… Kimura had adopted the Mission as his own!

Mission Demands Great Sacrifice

Once Bruce Lee’s Kung Fu school was started with the help of Kimura’s investment, it was later moved to Oakland, where it flourished. Everyone that believed in Bruce’s vision was rewarded with the success of the school and the income it generated. However, Bruce Lee once again heard his Mission call and knew that opening a Kung Fu school was just one step towards proving that Kung Fu was the greatest martial arts in the World.

Bruce Lee realized that his Kung Fu school’s success alone couldn’t spread the message about the greatness of Kung Fu to the whole world. Director Ed Parker convinced Bruce that movies could give Kung Fu the worldwide exposure he sought. This made him decide to walk away from his very successful Kung Fu school and leave for Hollywood.

Missions Lead to Success

Of course, the rest is history as Bruce Lee did accomplish his mission of proving that Kung Fu is the greatest form of martial arts. We know this because there are hardly ever Karate movies on TV or at the box office as Kung Fu has taken over Hollywood and the world, thanks to Bruce Lee’s dedication! When you dedicate yourself to a powerful mission, it attracts followers and keeps you on the true path and ultimately leads you to success! Therefore, if you’re a business leader then you should evaluate your mission and consider revising it until it has the ability to attract followers and incite people to take action for the cause!
