1. Goals. “A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.”
  2. Flexibility. “Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.”
  3. Time. “If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of.”
  4. Service. “Real living is living for others.”
  5. Acceptance. “Take no thought of who is right or wrong or who is better than. Be not for or against.”
  6. Single-Mindedness. “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”
  7. Creativity. “Using no way as way, using no limitation as limitation.”
  8. Simplicity. “Simplicity is the key to brilliance.”
  9. Find Your Path. “Absorb what is useful, Discard what is not, Add what is uniquely your own.”
  10. Take Action. “Knowing is not enough, you must apply; willing is not enough, you must do.”
  11. Ego. “The martial arts are ultimately self-knowledge. A punch or a kick is not to knock the hell out of the guy in front, but to knock the hell out of your ego, your fear, or your hang-ups.”
