What It Takes To Be A Real Badass

Having a strong will and power

Taking some difficult challenges even though you are not sure if you can accomplish it. By exploring new things, you will learn through the experience whether you succeeded or not. Do not decline something immediately because you might lose an opportunity.

Standing up to what is right

Your actions speak louder than your words so just do it. Don't be a coward when you know someone is being bullied , use your voice as a sword against injustice. Remember it is not cool to be a bully and hurting others is not fun. A real badass is a role model to others.

Not taking criticisms to the heart

When other people try to put you down, you should always use it as a motivation to rise to be more better, more capable and more respectable. Remember you should only take words from the people you care for , not from stranger who knows nothing about you. Be strong and be optimistic.

Learning from your mistakes

If you do something stupid or wrong, make sure that in the future you will avoid doing that same mistake. Once is enough for a wise man so if you keep repeating the same error over and over again, you are not growing to be better. It's okay to omit a mistake because we are not perfect but try your best to avoid it.

Not overthinking about things

Remember people can commit a mistake , your not the only one who is imperfect. Do not sulk in the corner because that will not help you.Their is a difference between grasping and clinging. Grasping is holding on to something for a short period of time but clinging is not letting go of your problems. Once you do something there is no turning back but you can refrain yourself from making the same mistake.

Taking risks

It's okay to play with fire sometimes because life is boring without some spice. You only live once so you should take some calculated risks which means that you need to take risk that will not make you go a downward spiral. Be adventurous and explore the world.
