What exactly does it mean to be Ruthless? Ask any individual and I am sure you will get a variety of responses. Most people will define it as being merciless, having no compassion, or even being a savage. If you ask me, a brother of the Rho Alpha Chapter of Sigma Lambda Beta, I would tell you that it means none of those things. Well, maybe the merciless part, but I swear we are in no way savages that lack compassion. So what does it mean to be Ruthless? It would be hard to sum it up in a few words or even a few sentences, but I will try my best to keep this short and to the point. Being Ruthless is not just an act, it is a way of life. It is a way of approaching different problems and having the drive and tenacity to solve those problems. It is something that runs so deep in your veins that it exudes from you: an aura. It is a force that is felt by all those around us. We drive for excellence and anything less is a failure. For us there is no second place. There are no second chances and there sure as hell no free passes. To be Ruthless means to be look adversity in the face with a confident smirk. It means fearlessly walking in the shadows with your head held high. Being Ruthless means giving 110% and more. It is progression with the utmost resilience; a Ruthless man is never stagnant. We don't hear ‘no’, we hear ‘try harder.’ My name is Adrian Collins and I am a Brother of the Ruthless Rho Alpha Chapter of Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity Inc. -A.C.R.
