#3 TAKE ACTION!
In this episode we discuss one of Bruce Lee's most important philosophies—Take Action! Bruce Lee was known around the world as an action star but his philosophy about taking action goes much deeper.
Philosophy was not just an intellectual exercise for Bruce, he believed in applying it in real life through continual action. It was also an emotional process that started in his heart, then energized his body to manifest ideas in the real world. It was a process of becoming more intensely himself.
He encouraged his students to experience what it feels like to be fully alive and live the philosophy.
“Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.”

This week’s shoutout goes to pioneering Asian actor and activist George Takei. We all know him for his most famous role as Hikaru Sulu, helmsman of the USS Enterprise in the TV series Star Trek. But George is also an ardent activist working on behalf of LGBTQ+ rights. Thank you George for being a positive role model for us all.
