Finding Your Courage In Everyday Life | Real Life Superman

The things that hurt, instruct
Benjamin Franklin

Badass 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.



You must take ownership for your shit storms you bring onto yourself and all other relationships. We all have missteps. Taking responsibility is honorable. What you refuse to own will follow you, it will eventually mark you. Blaming, side stepping, ignoring, keeping silent, denial, letting another take the fall, not being honest is the mark of an adolescent boy not a man and is dishonorable. No one can trust a liar, a blame shifter. Stepping up to the plate and owning your decisions, remarks, and leadership is being responsible and personally accountable. Yes, it’s a tough and painful decision with lots of slander and many times hate dispensed on you but it will bring a deep sense of integrity and peace knowing you did what was right, regardless of the consequences. That’s being noble, a lost value in our culture of manhood. Men who demonstrate this BAD ASS VIRTUE, will be respected and honored.
