Baseline; white-space: pre-wrap; font-family: Arial, Helvetica; font-size: 14px;">Bruce Lee is pretty well-known for the effect he has had on the martial arts community. He spent a great portion of his life working to optimize several different martial arts into one, and now people refer to him as the creator of mixed martial arts. He has authored a few books that have been greatly influential to me. There are plenty of nuggets within them that have truly helped me improve in many aspects of life. My favorite lesson from Bruce Lee lies within the quotation above. In this post, I’ll unpack this statement a little, and hope to help some of you understand how possible it is to be exactly who you want to be.
Baseline; white-space: pre-wrap; font-size: 16px;">1. Cultivate all of the information about yourself that you can. Find your strengths, and bring them into the light.
Focus your efforts here at first. Practice and learn to be in a mode of constant self-analysis. Learn to be brutally honest with yourself without getting too beaten up over mistakes that you make. I like to take the “hard and fast” approach here because I learn well from jumping right in and taking action. Find these details about your motivations, best learning habits, etc. and you’ll have a solid foundation to work with. Introspection is key.

Baseline; white-space: pre-wrap; font-size: 14px;">If you aren’t trimming the fat in one way or another, you are doing yourself a disservice. During your continued analysis, make sure to pick a few characteristics or habits that you would like to shed from yourself. You are currently carrying weight that is unnecessary for your improvement and success. What are you currently doing regularly that is making you worse? When in your life have those concerns been less of an issue? Consider and realize what was happening situationally in those moments that helped you be better. Sometimes you just need to put yourself in the right situations to be successful. Everyone has their pitfalls. What do YOU need to do to help yourself avoid yours?

Baseline; white-space: pre-wrap; font-size: 14.6667px;">Make your life fun. When you are doing this analysis, achieving goals, working, etc., always add your own flavor. Do things that you want to be doing, and you won’t have to put too much effort into anything. I enjoy my work, and I try to incorporate my personal goals and interests into my work-life. Because of this, I get up in the morning with a big smile on my face.
Baseline; white-space: pre-wrap; font-size: 14.6667px;">If you take one thing from Bruce Lee, it should be to constantly analyze your process. If you have the ability to honestly evaluate your own habits and character, that’s already better than most. Eventually, all of that analysis will start to manifest itself in the form of real self-improvement.

"After deciding to move to Denver from NYC, my father and I decided to spend our vacation in Denver back in August, for the purpose of beginning the search for a new home. My father and I contacted Marc, and he made what we thought would be a long, drawn out process seem relatively easy. Before we knew it, my father and I owned a home by the time we finished our vacation in nine days.
Marc was very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, patient and an all-around great person. He took the time to educate us, as we were first time home owners, and show us all around the Denver metro area. He also continues to follow up with us after the sale, which we really appreciate. I highly recommend Marc for your relocation needs.
