I have been thinking about writing this post for quite some time.  There are people I encounter in life that I consider a Bad Ass.  I encounter true Bad Asses occasionally, but less and less frequently these days.

I don’t care what your W2 said you made last year.  I don’t care how athletic you are.  I don’t care how people view you. 

A Bad Ass is someone who is someone who is passionate about something.  A Bad Ass is someone who is not afraid to speak his or her mind.  A Bad Ass is someone who stands up for what they believe in regardless of what others think of them. I aspire to be like them.  I imagine you do too!

You see, there are too many wimps out there.  They wake up, do their thing and go on with their lives.  I look for someone who wants to make a difference. 

Man up, put your gloves on and don’t be afraid to speak your mind.  Don’t be afraid of trying something different.   Don’t be afraid of what someone else might think. 

You are an original.  You are unique.   Be confident.  Be bold.  Be excited.  Love life, and embrace change.  Make a difference.  Stick out your tongue, do a slam-dunk.

Thanks for all of the Bad Asses out there.  You know who you are.  I do too.  Recruiting needs you.  Change the world one idea at a time.  I need to take your lead.  I certainly have a lot to learn from you.

To everyone who commented on this post, I think you kind of missed the point. Will wrote a good piece about what he thinks it takes to not be a troll and to actually kick ass online. To all you comment baiters, and Animal, looking right at you, you kind of not only missed the point but proved Will's rationale for writing it to be absolutely spot on.  I'd never say to keep it positive, but at least be constructive.

Great post with some interesting commentary.

Badass seems to be the new way of saying -- WORK HARD,  slay the dragons and place people!

I am amazed that people are still reading this.   I like your picture Robye!  TY Jeanna and Matt.  I guess it was more of a hot button than I realized.

I think a 'badass' is someone with hemorrhoids, and my boss is one, because he likes to talk about them a lot.
