Ric Flair: The Ultimate Confidence Booster

Jan

As a kid, I loved wrestling. While I loved Macho Man Randy Savage, Sting, and Rowdy Roddy Piper, sitting in front of the TV to watch the awesomeness that is Ric Flair was a weekly must-do.

The flashiness of Ric Flair’s costumes drew me in. When his theme song played, I would be in the living room, with a blanket draped over my shoulders.

Oh, and he’s an expert in trash talking. As a kid, I memorized the legendary speech in the video below:

That speech gave me the confidence I desperately needed in those moments of adolescence when confidence was M.I.A. Fast forward to adulthood, and I still have the unf*ckwithable mindset courtesy of Ric Flair.

Let's be honest, if you don't believe in your awesomeness, how can you expect anyone else to?

If you (still) think that Ric Flair doesn’t have an impact, check out the video below:

Dear Ric Flair,

If you just so happen to read this (and I’m putting it out there in the Universe that you will), thank you for being the badass that you are.

Your forever fan,

Joy
