Finding Your Courage In Everyday Life | Real Life Superman

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.



Most see what needs to be done, but few will meet the challenge and get it done. You must be willing to be the first to start something, to jump in the race. It is taking action and not waiting or procrastinating. Fear of failure stops action, so you won’t do anything. You stand back, hesitate, won’t take responsibility, and simply refuse to get involved. You must make a decision to step into the chaos, the situation, the relationship, the leadership need. You must call out the spunk and get up and go. We must enter the conflict instead of retreat, many times, it will reflect working without being told what to do or needing supervision, having the drive to succeed or accomplish the task and willing to move into conflict instead of avoiding the obvious dysfunction. Men who demonstrate this BAD ASS VIRTUE, rise to the challenge and act.
