The things that hurt, instruct
Benjamin Franklin

Bad ass virtues represent those virtues we as men need to embrace, forge into our lives, honor, and replicate in younger men as well as sharpen each other with. These are the virtues that require the crucible for refining the dross, purifying strength, courage, confidence, resilience, and depth of character. This is what makes them bad ass because they will break us and reshape us on the anvil. They will never be easy to conquer but conquer we must. We must awaken these lost masculine virtues in each one of us and become them allowing them to define us. They give definition to our masculinity a frame, a reference, a routine, a map of true manhood north unleashing our masculine power.



We need each other. We were never created to be alone; we were created for relationship. Two are better than one because the other can come shoulder to shoulder to help and bring strength in the tough and horrific times in life that no one is ever immune from. Nothing great ever happened from being alone, it is always with others. When we believe we do not need anyone, we buy into the lie that we are superior. Superiority says you are better than everyone else, it creates a separateness from others, a condescending attitude of arrogance. You stop being a learner, valuing other gifts, skills, and design in others. We need others for our personal growth as well as professional growth. We need battle buddies who we depend on, who can carry us out after being wounded, won’t leave us, and are committed to our relationship to the end. Men who demonstrate this BAD ASS VIRTUE, form deep, meaningful, significant male relationships for the journey. Men who demonstrate this BAD ASS VIRTUE, form deep meaningful bonding relationships with other men.
