Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts, it is glorious even to fail.

Bruce Lee

When Bruce Lee’s TV series “The Green Hornet” was canceled after a single season in 1967, the actor began teaching private martial arts lessons to famous students such as Steve McQueen, James Coburn, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Pressed to name his unique fight style, 26-year-old Lee obliged with Jeet Kune Do, a Cantonese phrase meaning “The way of the intercepting fist.” This quote — uttered before Lee became a film icon with 1973’s “Enter the Dragon,” which was released just six days after his death — appears in Lee’s posthumously published “Tao of Jeet Kune Do.” With it, Lee suggests that a meaningful goal equates to a steep climb. Even if you don’t achieve your highest objective, the steps taken will lead you somewhere satisfying.


MwsR Quote

Life can pull us down sometimes. When you feel the pressure, the pull, look for a stronghold. Sometimes, it can be found in family pictures, or in remembering accomplishments and goals that you have reached before. Perhaps pray for help from the Lord of strength. You do not have to deal with this pressure alone. Seek out loved ones for support and encoucouragement. Find something that is attainable and get it done. Whatever you do, you do not have to fall under the pressure. Remember David from the Bible and the fight he had with the giant Goliath. He won against that very big “obstacle” and against the pressure of that challenge. He asked God for help, God answered.
