Everyone knows who Bruce Lee is – martial arts master, fight choreographer, film director, teacher and game-changing actor. Most people, however, probably don’t know that he was just 5’8″ tall. This is because the first thing you always notice about Bruce Lee is his amazing physique. The man was in perfect shape.
He trained rigorously and treated his body as a temple. He founded and popularized the hybrid martial arts system of Jeet Kune Do. His approach to martial arts was one of a philosopher. He often referred to his fighting system as “style without style” and “the art of fighting without fighting”.
Check him out waging epic, unarmed battle against Chuck Norris:
Unfortunately, Lee died all too young at the age of 32. He will forever live on in his many hit movies and in the hearts and minds of both Chinese and American martial arts fans and film buffs.

Food for thought = Words, fashion and effectiveness = to be or not to be taken seriously = that is the question…
A..Words: choose your words wisely,,,,,,,,,,,,, to be taken seriously.
The use of wishy washy words such as kinda and sorta take the
speaker and the listeners \ audience into a state of not being taken
For examples = listen to, mostly, artsy fartsy people, over and over,
using those two words when being interviewed on the radio and TV.
1. I kinda wrote that song sorta on the weekend, etc..
2. I sorta had sex and kinda like became / got pregnant, etc..
NOTE: The interviewer has an opportunity to give the interviewee
constructive criticism and/or feedback if the interviewee needs / wants to be taken more seriously, in the future.
B..Fashion: choose appropriate fashions to be taken seriously…
Appropriate fashion for a given situation adds to a person’s
credibility and contributes to the possibility that what they want to
present / offer, verbally, will be taken seriously.
NOTE: For a man to inappropriately wear shorts and/or short pants gives the impression, to others, that he was foolish enough to allow himself to be sold a half of a pair of pants and to show that the top
half of the pants, fortunately, is what he purchased rather than only
the bottom half of the pants, to be worn in public…
Example: It would be inappropriate for a female or male to wear a
bathing suit and/or PJs to a serious job interview, church, mall, etc.,
just to show off her or his shaved legs or night cloths …
C..Effectiveness: choosing the most appropriate fashions for a given situation …….. + using and choosing your words wisely will
contribute to allowing others to take you more seriously…
Examples above in A. and B….. or not to be taken seriously.
PS: Birds of a feather flock together… what kind of birds do you
want in your flock…
What you demonstrate influences what you get ( sew and/or reap ) + a change of fashion, now and then, keeps one from becoming
bored and/or boring….
Be especially careful about the distraction of tattooing and piercing if your intention Is to be taken seriously, in developing significant
future possibilities / options for yourself, regarding employment…
