There's a famous story told about Bruce Lee in The Art of Expressing The Human Body: “Bruce had me up to three miles a day, really at a good pace. We’d run the three miles in twenty-one or twenty-two minutes. Just under eight minutes a mile [Note: when running on his own in 1968, Lee would get his time down to six-and-a half minutes per mile]. So this morning he said to me “We’re going to go five.” I said, “Bruce, I can’t go five. I’m a helluva lot older than you are, and I can’t do five.” He said, “When we get to three, we’ll shift gears and it’s only two more and you’ll do it.” I said “Okay, hell, I’ll go for it.” So we get to three, we go into the fourth mile and I’m okay for three or four minutes, and then I really begin to give out. I’m tired, my heart’s pounding, I can’t go any more and so I say to him, “Bruce if I run anymore,” –and we’re still running-”if I run any more I’m liable to have a heart attack and die.” He said, “Then die.” It made me so mad that I went the full five miles. Afterward I went to the shower and then I wanted to talk to him about it. I said, you know, “Why did you say that?” He said, “Because you might as well be dead. Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it’ll spread over into the rest of your life. It’ll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.”
This story sums up the mentality and focus a martial arts enthusiast has for his practice. One who can focus on his martial arts practice like this often has the same focus and mentality bleed over into other aspects of his or her life.
"This story is one of my favorite quotes about perseverance and determination, both of which are imperative when succeeding in the business world," explains Forest Cassidy, co-founder of LeadFerret. "Any man or woman dedicated in martial arts will likely show that 'then die' attitude in business as well. Whether you have a martial arts specific product or you're just looking to do business with someone who is a master of dedication, this directory is an excellent place to start."
