My Definite Chief Aim

In 1969, Bruce Lee wrote this letter stating what he wants to achieve and by when. He died 4 years later, at the early age of 32. It turns out that within those four short years, he accomplished everything he set out for himself. Incredible.

At one point in my life, I did a lot of visualization and it served me well. Unfortunately, it’s something I’ve lost over the years. Reading Bruce’s letter is a reminder of the power of this practice.

Tonight I’m going to outline my own definite chief aim. And I’d love for you to join me.

What do you want to accomplish? Where do you want to be? And by when?

My Definite Chief Aim

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.
