In honor of the late, great Bruce Lee (Jun Fan Lee), I’m posting his written declaration of his Definite Chief Aim.
For those that don’t know, the Definite Chief Aim was written about in Napoleon Hill’s classic Think and Grow Rich. You are to write your definite chief aim, how you intend to get it and when and what you intend to give back in return for it.
Bruce Lee was a philosopher and mental scientist, a student of the New Thought movement and it influenced his martial arts, his acting and his life. When he wrote this, he was 28 years old with his newly born 2nd child. His show the Green Hornet was over and he was nearly broke.
Here is what he wrote:
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.
