Ever wanted to get to the point in your life where you just know that you can stand undefeated against anything? Then there is one essential thing you must do immediately.
Become a honey badger.
Yes you heard (read) that right.
I am indeed telling you to be this funky looking skunk/sloth thing.
Well, not literally, of course.
Unless you’re into that sort of thing.
In which case…I don’t judge.
For those who don’t know, the honey badger is arguably the strongest animal alive today. Though not much bigger than a Shih Tzu, the honey badger will fearlessly take on anything from a cobra to a full-grown lion. Not to mention, their hide is so tough most other animals’ and insects’ stingers and teeth can rarely penetrate it–at least not while the badger’s still alive and fighting. And damn can they fight! Honey badgers in the heat of battle display seemingly endless amounts of ferocity and endurance. Like in the back of their minds they’re saying, “Bitch, please. I can do this all day!”
Hence the now famous mantra:
Now I know you’re still tripping off the strongest animal alive today part. In truth, the little devils aren’t from Krypton. So, no, honey badgers are not physically stronger than say a lion, a bear, or even half of the other things they take on.
“Changing the game is a mindset.” -Robert Rodriguez
It is their MENTALITY that gives them an edge over what would appear to be their betters. They don’t operate under fear or caution. They give whatever they’re up against everything that they’ve got as if they just know that they are incapable of losing.
That is what I am asking you to aspire to embody.
So lets break this down.
To be a honey badger you must have:
+Ferocity- The boldness that empowers you to fight through any situation with an intimidating passion.
+Endurance- The mental stamina to last in the heat of conflict without ever showing weakness to your opposition.
+Thick skin- The “don’t give a shit” attitude that doesn’t allow any adversity thrown at you to penetrate and actually hurt you.
+Confidence- The belief in yourself that nothing is too hard, too great, or too impossible for you to overcome.
So now that you know what it takes…
Are you ready?
