no, just a dedicated martial arts practitioner!!

I think that Bruce Lee, in his short journey, proved that he might actually be a super human. There are so many things related to him that let us believe our trust on the point that he might not be some average human. Although, there is a possibility that he was an average human being. This makes us think deep that humans are capable of doing so much, only if we focus and work hard.

According to me the real kick in Bruce Lee's life was the problem when he lost the fight with the street kid. That fight was the real game changer in his life and the ultimate motivation to him that made him who he is today was because of that fight. We all should take inspiration from him that if a person wants he/she could do anything and everything happen. There is nothing like impossible in this world. All that is there is in our mind. We choose to do a thing or not do it out of fear or any other emotion due to that feeling only.

If we think that something can happen, then it will happen we just have to hang on to it and work in its direction to make it happen and then the world would go like WHAAAAT!
