Me too!!! This came along at the perfect time for me. So stoked I found it and read it. I am officially ready to be a total bad ass. Aye man the comment line is so long so I just wrote this here man. You are truly an awesome dude for putting this out there.
I just had to let you know this man. Im gonna train like a motherfucker man. Imean you are theee fucking man bro. You gotme So pumped man. You are helping people and that is pretty cool! Stumbled upon your blog at a perfect time. I am 49, married to my soul mate of 26 years, been in a corp career for 25 years Basically miserable. Do I need a new job?
Is it my boss he just got laid offmaybe I need to see a shrink, get some drugs. I am currently taking sleepers because my mind is buzzing, and also on stomach meds, out of shape too. I have always been healthy and have enjoyed a life of outdoor adventure. OK enough! Reading your BLOG has given me the strength to get out on the edge and stop waiting to go pursue my dreams! We have worked our asses off our entire adult life and saved enough to live comfortably and get what we need, although it will be a life-style adjustment.

My good friend was just diagnosed with cancer this week. Well guess what, life just dealt her a big fucking shit sandwich- sucks. I need to follow my heart. No more living in fear! The dream is NOW baby Bring it on! Thanks for the raw wake up call Chris!!! Chris I am fucking speechless man.
I am a relative newbie to your world. I connected through a link of another link from someplace. But I truly believe things fall into place for a reason. I knew you were no bullshit when I hit the pic of snake plisken, dude you have my attention!
We have all worked for a check, bought our own bs, and told clients what they want to hear to keep the peace. All I can say is you are right, tomorrow is going to be fucking fantastic, and I can not wait!!! I owe you a beer my friend.
probably 3 or Really awesome post man. My brothers and I would watch escape from New York and L. all the time. This is the first time seeing your site.
Glad I found it. Nicely done man! You did it once again. Another awesome post. I love your writing style. I love all of these, I need to work on Number 9 more:. Really cool stuff, man. I have never considered myself to be a badass but a majority of the things you posted are things that I have done throughout my life. Following this path has led me to some interesting jobs, situations and places. What is interesting to me is how these things have made me successful in other countries but would have acutally held me back in the USA.
I think this illustrates the direction our country has gone. Here in Egypt, where I have worked for 4 years. Despite my full sleeve tattoos well, one arm is done, working on the othermy disdain for wearing suits something that higher ups are expected to do here and my no bullshit attitude, I am a HSE director of a petrochemical country that gets invited to weddings, dinners and other social type things. I have fucked up more times then I can remember, owned up to my mistakes, fixed what I could and got the fuck on with my business.

Randal, I lived in Saudi Arabia for a number of years and even though there was a strict dress code for Western women when we were in Arab towns, it was still a place where I felt like everyone could just be themselves. It was only coming back to the States that I felt the pressure to conform - irony, indeed. It is the same in Egypt Tamera. The thing I love about Egypt is that it is borderline anarchy.
Traffic is chaos and dangerous. And interestingly enough, I feel much freer here than I do in the USA. I have to say 24 and 25 really resonated with me, but all in all, I love how you speak the truth brotha! Good thing with you is that you have lived this so there is a real world perspective in what you are saying rather than someone just blowing gas.
Very badass of you. Love this post, Chris!! This is my first time posting. I appreciate this list because sometimes people forget what badass is really about because we stick a dollar sign to it.
My parents came from a different country and work two jobs to send money back to their home country and provide for us. We had 11 people aunts, uncles, cousins etc. living in a two bedroom apartment. We grew up in a ganginfested area with drive by shooting but all my five brothers never got involve.
I am not saying we are perfect but my parents and others in similiar situations are badass.

Brilliant stuff, brother Chris! I am sharing that shit right now. That post is the shit Chris! at least 4 passages and another pile of quotes I got so juiced reading it! You knocked it out of the fucking park this time amigo. I am impressed, bro! Amazing read and extremely inspirational! I love the concept of being nice to others is BADASS and not considered weak. This article was full of positivity and contained so many lessons to learn about life such as forgiveness, mistakes, flaws, and slaying the dragon were all such powerful concepts.
I loved what your wrote about training the body, too. Thank you very much for creating such an incredible article. It was as BADASS as they come. Simply Awesome! Thanks for the post, Chris! I am printing it and tacking it up on my wall!
Things are still on the up and up. I think we both have hit some of the same rocky road paths with our ex-wives. Keep your head up man. It is hard for me to do at times, but you never know. This just rocks. I worked hard and busted my butt to get there. I just signed up 3 clients this week for a long term package and 2 short term programs. At the same time, I lost clients too in one door and out the other.
We totally conflicted. Train, help others, and give back to the community. Build a legacy. He is going to just take them.
But, my clients are happy. Better yet, I am happy. That gives me more hours to spend with my son and focus on training myself rather than training the others. Money is definitely not the answer to happiness. Money I was counting on actually money I was settling for.
And that is not really a financial success. First off, I love what I do so it is NOT work. Second off, I set myself up for success - Rather than going into debt although I struggled! I met real people and made meaningful connections with them. This ends now. I started with no money, a kettlebell, time, and a vision for success. I love this post and your no BS approach. I will share this with my friends and family.
Looking forward to your new book. Keep inspiring!! Love this post. I got out of my car, ready to lay into this dude verbally and physically if necessary. Stopped me in my tracks.
He was a badass motherfucker just by his outward appearance and the vibe he kicked. But he was cool about it, we spoke for a second, shook hands and we went about our ways. No need to go crazy to make your point, as I was doing. In the meantime, can you tell me where you get the Rollins quotes? Does he have a book you recommend?
I have Just discovered you and all your help that you provide on KBL. Let me tell you on this particular post you articulate everything that I practice or try to aspire to.
I am just a regular dude who is turning 44 this month. I love to train and I love to help people. I am testing for my NASM cert at the end of this month. The challenge is making time and getting the balls to take a few chances and make a leap of faith So your help on KBL and your inspirational words on this blog help snuff out the inner-wussy.
Keep coming with your sage advice and whether it be personal or fitness business. I for one have to remember life is fleeting. I need to slay my dragons and take bold action to get to my goals and remember my life is fleeting I need to be a Badass or Snake Pliskin minus the eye patchto be the best for me which, in turn, I believe will inspire my boys to also be Badasses Thanks.

You probably know how to get on i-tunes or sound cloud but if you need some help let me know. Great Blog. Great post man. Thanks for the post bro. Chris, yet again you hit the nail or nails square on the head. Going through a time in my life at present that has led to some actions and behaviours that I regret and to me being in a very dark place mentally. This has been another positive on my road back. Thanks for sharing Stewart, darkest before dawn brother, do your best to stay out of regret and look for the gift in all this something great will come out of it.
Many people point to their darkest being what brought them to their current heightened levels of happiness. Why does the use of guns have to portray a bad-ass image? This entirely depicts violence as a way of becoming badass. True badassness comes from attitude and not from gunpowder and bullets. I did enjoy the rest of your content! Staying true to oneself and the world is harder than it looks, and anyone who can master this skill has to have some balls. I got directed here by Kevin Ross Muay Thai fighter and I have to admit, this is a post i really needed to read.
I MEAN EXACTLY what I needed to read, RIGHT NOW and today. Awesome write up. I dig this brother, staight to the point, and honest. A lot of people will take great value in what you have listed here. I will reread this for some time to come, it is a good guidline to become a better version of myself. keep up the greatness, and thank you. Thank you thank you thank you!
Never read your blog, but will be reading it full time now. Straight badass is right. Hands down. Strong work son. wow Pip, that means a lot. Appreciate you keeping us all a little safer man. What inspiring, humorous, wonderful words to live by. Definitely looking forward to reading more of your stuff!
Thanks Chris for this. I was having a bad day, but this helped put things into perspectivekeep up the good work! Chris, i try to incorporate all 37 each day. These are important actions that we all need to try to achieve each day. So I made a simple phone call and found out what he needed to do.
Yes, I SHOULD not interfere in an 18 year olds world, but this was the exception to the rule. He is now on track and will be reading this copy when he logs into his email or reads the print out that is lying on his bed. thanks for writing your blog! I love them, so real life, educating stuff. Embraced my chemo treatments with a passion and energy that made me finish without side effects, all to an open mind, hard workouts, and LIFE!
This is awesomely condensed. I could read it every day and still get new insights from it. Facebooked and Tweeted. Thanks for the ass-kicking. It turned my mind around. Dude this is the best list of Life Changing things I have ever read!
Excellent Job Sir! Absolutely brilliant. It made me laugh out loud, nod in agreement, deeply contemplate, all in one blog! With grattitude. Loved this so much, read it three times in a row. and, of course, shared it. I will read it again, obviously. And, now, more of your writing. Thank you! I came across this blog from a retweet. Everything you said is perfect. I love it!

Love it dude, plan on reading more that you have to offer. Keep it coming! I find it far more powerful to show images of someone being a leader, a coach, a teacher, an artist creating something or images of one pushing themselves training which I you did at times. Hey Chris! Really enjoyed reading this! Very encouraging and super funny! I love and agree wholeheartedly with your perspective on success ie the true badass. AND of course the glorious joy of book collecting! Amen mah brotha!!
This is what I will share with my two year old son as he gets older. It pretty much encapsulates all the advice I wish I had growing up. A friend of mine posted the link to this on her facebook page. I am so glad I clicked on it. Someone happens to post something, you happen to click on it and it turns out being exactly what you needed. Thanks for the reminder! Kudos for responding to your comments. It was a awesome thing to see.
Fantastic post, Chris. I got here late to the party by way of a friendofafriendofafriend kind of thing. And have tried to live it for the past 35 years or so. Needless to say, it has been with varying degrees of success.
So I pick it up and try again. I hope it sticks to somebody else too. Thanks again. Chris- you just made me want to quit my corporate job and work for and do something for myself.
My crossfit gym posted the link to your blog, and I feel like training in crossfit has all of a sudden rekindled my inner spirit and drive. My inner creativeness is suddenly awake the last month and I feel like I should Do something bigger than be a sheep in the herd before my time is up on this earth. Right on, Chris. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me to be the best version of myself that I can be. It has been inspirational, and immensely helpful to say the least.
BTW: I was recently in Orange on a trip to Disney, and met Corey Beasley. Even though I never ran into you, it was cool to know that one of my heroes was so close by. Now, how the fuck am I supposed to finish my little post after reading such an epic post like this?!? Great job, brother! Keep fighting the good fight. i just consider myself a decent human being. thanx for the insights. This is too awesome.

I can't wait to go through this line by line with my wife of 26 yearswho is a BADASS herself and my two girls 25 and 21certified badasses. I am going to cut and paste this and place it by my bedside for my own daily reflection.
This is my new BIBLE. If you are ever in the SoFla area, a beer or three is on me. Awesome post Chris and so truegreat reminders to keep your mind on the present and live in the here and now!
Write some more! Great read ?? Three points hit home, dragon slaying, relationships and training. This read is the nudge I needed to refocus. At one point life forced me into survival mode and my mind helped me survive by focusing only on the moment. I have neglected my relationship with the one who created me, The God Who Sees Me. I became so burned out by religious crap that I walked away from all things churchy.
My relationship with God has suffered. Best Wishes - Cynde. great post again Chris. Hello, I just wanted to let you know that your posts have reached Saudi Arabia.
This is a very awesome article. I learned a lot and I was inspired a lot as well. My favorite part was number My to do list have always been so long and so stressful. However, reading your posts made me realize that I could only do much.

Getting your security blanket yanked out from underneath you can generate a lot of fear but it can also be the eye-opening motivator that propels you on to greater accomplishments. Fortunately for me, I have surrounded myself with quality people who are positive influences. Thank you for putting words to a solid framework for what it takes to seize the day and suck the marrow out of life.
I really needed this and you hit all the nails on the head for me. I have some young friends who really need this and will share it with them - start off being Badass young, I say! Seriously, thank you so much for writing and sharing this, it was exactly the counsel I needed right now.
I just returned to this today and started rereading the list. Yep, do the work, but remain unattached to outcome. Very tough to practice, but very necessary for me at this time. Well fucking done, getting this out into the world has already helped prolly thousands!
Am digging it, and hungry for more! Chris- totally badass! Why not just trying to be a good person? Be true to yourself and try to be the best version of that. That is all. Chris, there is an amazing amount of truth and wisdom here. THANK YOU for clarifying my thinking, and leading me to actually making a decision on a course of conduct that will benefit many others but perhaps come at significant cost to me.
You helped me realize that, for me, for sure, the cost of NOT acting is even greater. I particularly loved the line about not needing to fear a band of crazed horseman sweeping over the village tonight.
We live in a world where we have to please a few people, and do things even when we don't want to do them. All because we want to fit in, or be liked.

Keep up the great work! Your 41 reasons to work out, especially number 38, got me to the gym today for the first time in months. I never thought of exercising that way before, and it is a very powerful motivator. One day down, all of the rest of my days to go! I shake their hand and thank them for their service; I often ask what branch or when they were in.
After I shook his hand, I asked what unit. I think this made his day; I know it made mine. We chatted a bit and then he and his wife continued shopping.
Great stuff here! No frills no bullshit just real. I am a fan! Chris, Well stated and poignant. A lot of thought went into this and respect it highly. Really enjoyed the photos as well. There are photos in here that I have loved my whole life.
Keep it up and I do agree with the podcast idea, I think you have a lot to say. Love everything on this list. It is almost like this should be our wake up message every morning. A recording to be listened to along with the read. I know I am guilty of being my worst enemy, too hard on myself. trying ways to be better to myself and those around me. Nothing makes for a better day than a smile and a laugh from someone around you.
Love this post and I hope that the rest are as quality as this one I literally put everything I was doing on hold to read its entirety, even reposted it since I just subscribed. Everyone needs a reality check every now and than. But thanks for the great material. Hey Chris, just a quick one from the land downunder. I like all this. The more people who read this and act like this the better we are all going to be.
I hope my young step son gets to take this on board in his life. Very cool mate. Well done. Hey Chris, thanks for sharing this. Quite a few things hit home with me. I know I got a lot of baggage and emotional crap to shake some people into screaming in terror.
But I am gonna bookmark this and read it every time I need a reminder. I work the 9 - 5 job just to keep afloat. Just to keep bills paid.
I believe remembering and reminding myself of what you said here should help me focus enough to follow the dream of getting my creative mind published. That was a great post I am kind of happy now to be on face book to run into it.
keep the good stuff coming. Hi Chris. Fantastic, Great to hear the real stuff about life that no one really admits is what we need.
I think everyone is afraid to really live, too concerned about getting it. Few less gun pictures would be nice. Well said, brotherman.
I need to work on a few of these! Chris, Just wanted to express my appreciation for your blog post. To be honest, I had no idea who you were; I was directed to this post from a link on Thriving Business. com, a website about growing your business. I am however, most likely a lot older than your average reader. I just received my Medicare card! I started my career as a young person as a Physical Education teacher, so I know the value of good training, and having had to modify my own exercise habits as my body has gotten older, I know the wisdom of keeping up with training.
Well, being the BADASS person I am, I decided enough was enough and have been freelancing for the last 2 years. I am just now starting my own business and will be taking it offshore by the end of the year.
Your definition of Badass is such a hoot! I am sending it to all the young people I still work with and have in my life and family. I applaund you! You are truly BADASS!!! I mean, some of it goes back to good old wisdom our grandmas all gave us, but many of us mostly seem to learn by making mistakes.
Inspirational and a lot of common sense words. Arrived on my facebook wall at a particularly low the lowest point in my life. It has given me the push to carry on and keep on plugging away.
I found you online 3 years ago and you helped shape my business for free! I owe you BIG time, you continue to be an inspiration x. Thank you, Chris. It was one of my personal priestesses who turned me onto your Temple of Badassness! Wanted to say THANK YOU for your candor; the brilliance of the wake-up call that is your is-ness; and the assimilable wisdoms you share with such passionate eloquence.

Thanks for reminding just how much ass I can totally kick! Isabella J. Love the blog. I recommend it to everyone. Whenever I get tired, frustrated, hungry, or stressed. I read your blog and it re-centers me. I have been dealing with some pretty serious depression and separation from my wife and 2 year old daughter who is my life.
Whenever I need to refocus my life I read these 37 ways to be a total badass and I am reminded of who I really am. Thanks for your insights. Thanks Chris. I will tell you that you are dead on as it relates to your other posts as well. Especially about training. I get into the gym or work with the heavy bag, and all the other heinous shit that I am dealing with just disappears.
You are the man. Reading some of your posts have inspired me to create my own list of rules by which I live. Some of them are directly stolen from some of your posts and others come from things that are important to only me. Keep doing this great work as I know that it must be an inspiration to many.
Not exactly sure where in the world you may be Chris. The boat boys from NorthCraft Fabrication in Sooke, British Columbia are kickin it in these ways, and a free thought fist rises up from the stratosphere.

Kudos to you brother. Fuck yea! Need to read this everyday. Totally love the way your mind works!! Excellent article that would show us all the way to Nirvana if we could practice what you preach.
Personally, the dragon spoke to me. I need to walk into that fire. Fear is a constant companion. Will work on that. My mind kept having to bump over that error again and again, distracting me from the meat.
hey Bev, appreciate the words and thanks for the tip, I had two people edit it but I guessed we all missed those, thanks for the heads up. What an awesome, amazing, and inspiring piece of work. Never heard of you before. Someone shared your post on FB. This post could be renamed The Essential Steps to Live an Extraordinary Life, or something like that. Life is short and precious and thank you for sharing your views. chris- good effort here and i applaud your vehemency however, whats with all the swearing and all the gun pictures?
i mean. but the pictures of fools with guns? im not sure where you were going with that. guns and gun pictures mean only one thing: violence. i know that you think that guns and gun movies and chicks with guns and photos of people with guns and ultra close camera angles are cool and bad ass but really thats kind of out dated. you really seem like youre advocating for peace and harmony in a urban cool kind of way which is cool.
the gun imagery just doesnt fit here. i would go for less contradictory images and a tiny bit more humility. secretly, humbleness is the new bad-ass.
Possible speak bad ass things to do are not right
I write like I talk and this blog is mainly written for the kind of people that in real life I would be friends with. Now, about the guns. I never thought this post would be as popular as it is.
While to me, those were bad ass characters in bad ass movies, I do not want some kid to think that owning or using a gun can in anyway make him or her a bad ass. And I must say I agree wholeheartedly. This post was fucking boss.
I have a roof over my head, food in the pantry, and a car that works. My job may suck, and the people I deal with there on a daily basis may drive me up a wall on a good day, but I have one. Not tonight. Phenomenal article, very well written. lol My biggest battle is the negativity that comes out when things get really intense, especially when exhaustion sets in and there are still sets to get done.
But the last line in that segment about carving out a better existence brought me back to why I train in the first place, so thanks for the much needed reality check. Great read. I like your mix of zen and kicking ss, it speaks to me. I coach people on how to live a more bad ss life and will definitely add some of your insights into my tool belt. LOVE this post! Thank you for keeping it real and reinforcing the positive!
The post is dat bomb chris. You are on point with it. Some people always did call me a bad ass but I really didnt know what it was about. Until I read this post. I love it. Good stuff here. The thing I like most is the fact that you take the time to respond to people who comment.
I think that is badass. Thanks Matt, yeah it can take quite a bit of time, but this blog means a lot to me, and the fact people are commenting, like yourself, means a lot to me too. I found your blog via Alex Zinchenko mentioning it. I just gotta say I have only been read a couple of the articles; but I already know I love your thought output ?? I look forward to following your musings.
How is this the first time I have ever come across your blog?! This is an amazing post! Came at the perfect time for me as well. I love moments when you read something that you felt was written only for you!
Thanks so much Chris! I was truly impressed by you. You have your own voice, which seems to be getting only rarer in a world where everyone is chattering - simply because it is easy to do this - but few are thinking. You have a great gift, I believe, for identifying diamonds in the rough and then faceting them to reveal their beauty. This is not the kind of comment I usually bother to make. I hope that you will keep writing.
feels like the Higher me is always getting blocked off for some reason? ohhh, I can relate fortunately you are doing some good things like volunteering, being creative, Power of Now. Chrisgreat stuff here and to think all these years I thought I was an honest, good person, just doing my thing, going along and getting alongnow I KNOW I am a BADASS and so are you. Thanks I needed that boost today, glad I was paying attention when I saw you post float by in my newsfeed. As someone who writes about gratitude as often as possible, and about trying to make the time to truly live life and love it, I really respect what you have to say.
Thanks for this post. Signing up to read your blog as I type. Figuratively speaking of course. Would kind of defeat the purpose if it was literal. I so love this! I especially love how you stress that being a BADASS is not the same as being an ASSHOLE. Too many people think they have to treat everyone around them like dirt to get respect. Kudos to this awesome post.
So glad I found this site! Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah Buddy! Chris My Man! I too was one of those silent mysterious types. Hi Chris, First time reader. Really loved the article, just need to figure out a kid friendly version to share with my sons. I am a first time reader, and I found your list thoroughly inspirational. A year ago I was 30 lbs. overweight and suffered from a variety of insecurities and bad habits. I am now extremely fit and look the best I have in my life.
I run all the time, work out almost everyday, eat ridiculous amounts of delicious healthy foods and run a half-marathon on average every two weeks. It is not about looking like a badass or acting like a badass, it is about being a badass.
The training will never stop, but I am concentrating on the following, quite in line with your thoughts: honesty, integrity, humility, courage, tenacity and kindness. I becone a better person everyday! Hi Chris, Wow! I just finished reading your blog for the first time and I am beyond blown away!
