How one becomes what one is — Self-actualization is the important thing. And my personal message to people is that I hope they will go towards self-actualization rather than self-image actualization. I hope that they will search within themselves for honest self-expression. – Bruce Lee
Some of the following is total image projection nonsense, but it helps bring me some “street cred” within the fitness scene, and opens up different kinds of opportunities. But there is also a ton of useful information in the articles, interviews, and podcasts. I live my life like an open book, shoot from the hip, answer questions honestly, and never hold back information when I know it can help. I apologize in advance for any foul language or inappropriate humor. I resort to both when I’m excited or nervous, and I’m usually both when I’m doing this stuff.
