Sometimes being a badass is a hard thing to do.  You have to own your shit and walk with it, get a bad rap for being honest, and people are gonna dislike you because you own your actions, but none of that should stop you from doing you. We all have our own ways of dealing with challenges we encounter in life and some of us choose to keep it real. Being real to me is being a badass. It’s owning the flaws and the greatness. It allows you to be honest and compassionate at the same time. By some people, this will be perceived as arrogance or cockiness.  Authenticity isn’t for anyone else but you.  If you remain true to yourself, you’ll find out who the other badass people are. Being a badass requires lots of love for yourself and others, patience, and willingness to fail. In doing so, your lead empowers others to find and express their own inner badasses. So own it: you’re a badass, and ain’t nobody stopping you.

See you on the mat. Much love and good vibes.
