Dragon's Dream Revealed in a Secret Letter

Dear Dreamers,

We all know the most famous Dragon from Hong Kong. What we don't know is how he achieved his success and got to be so tremendously famous. Many of us think that Bruce Lee did not have any secrets at all. He got to where he was just by training and practising to perfection. No doubt about it. Though there was something different about him when compared to other kung fu fighters that practised as much as him.

Bruce Lee used to write vision letters to himself. In his letter he described himself as the first highest paid Oriental movie star in United States and his gross revenue being $ 10.000.000 until 1980. Secret lied in his detailed view of his own future where he exactly knew what he wanted to achieve. Bruce Lee was confident because he mastered the technique of visualization and dreaming about tremendous success. He visioned to be the best performer for his audience and he put his vision into letters.

In three years of time I heard hundreds of people complaining about their life and how unjust is their position. Negative people and dream killers are all around the world desperately trying to recruit more people to their group. On the other hand we have people who want to do something about their lives and desperately waiting for something to happen. The perfect moment waiters usually give replies such as show me the way to change and I will change. Well in that case I suppose Bruce Lee can be the best example of a man with a dream that changed not only himself but also world around him.

Here is the original letter written by Bruce Lee where he describes his future life period from 1970 to 1980. He wrote it when he was only 28 years old and had a standard life conditions which showed no signs of potential growth. Letter starts with header  "My Definite Chief Aim":

Transcript as follows:

I, Bruce Lee, will be the first highest paid Oriental super star in the United States. In return I will give the most exciting performances and render the best of quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting 1970 I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end of 1980 I will have in my possession $10,000,000. I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness.

Bruce Lee

One of the world's famous success coaches Jack Canfield wrote a whole paragraph in his book Success Principles about Bruce Lee's letter writing method and how it impacted his further actions. He also mentioned other famous stars including Jim Carey and how they achieved success using the same method.

Bruce Lee has inspired millions not just because he was a brilliant fighter. He also had a brilliant character which was molded for many years by repetition and dreaming about his future life. He keeps inspiring us with his words of wisdom even today.

If this method helped Bruce Lee it can help anybody. I invite you to think about your dream and put it into a form of letter where you put all details and all emotions together. It is time for us to follow the great man and get where we want to get. I wish you a clarity in your feelings, a confidence in your own future and a constant drive to contribute to others for a better world.
