You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

    This is my favorite one “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” -Bruce Lee.

    Watch the movie Dragon – The Bruce Lee story (1993). This may give you an idea for a new motivational video about Bruce Lee. Beautiful background music and a lot of his quotes are there.

    About 2-3 years ago I was fighting depression, I had absolutely no clue what I wanted to do with my life. I started watching motivational videos, speeches and I found your channel. I saved all of them on my Ipod and still listen to them on a daily basis, they keep me focussed, they remind me of what I want and who I want to be. To be honest, I can’t imagine my life without them, your videos got me through so much, from depression to heartbreaks to sport injuries. I love the way how you just make all the different speeches become one and make each other stronger than they already are. I just want to say thank you, thank you for doing what you do. You made my world(my mind) a better place, keep it up man.
