qualities of a real manWhat are the qualities of a real man?

That’s a pretty tough question when you think about it.

It may have been a while since you’ve asked yourself or perhaps you never have.

One thing is for sure, being a man is something you must be proud of, but what does it take?

It’s something which you must strive to be with everything you’ve got, but how do you go about it?

Men’s advice in this area is practically non-exisitent and let’s face it, without the right amount of self-confidence and sense of self-worth, you are not going to acquire what it is you want out of your life.

As a man, there are specific qualities that you can embody which help you to create a lifetime of positive experiences, rather than a life full of regret and resentment.

This is something that is very much in question these days and I’d like to share with you my take on the top ten qualities that a man can embrace and portray to enrich his life.

10 Qualities Of A Real Man

Guys, pay close attention here because there are literally millions of women out there who are dying to find a great man.

If you’re failing to live up to the following, or don’t know what the qualities of a real man are, you better shape up. Because someone else out there is.

Ladies, if you know a man that comes up short in any of the following areas, or it’s your guy, please pass this along to him.

1)  A Real Man Is A Leader  

He thinks before he acts, making sure all the details and specifics are in order so when he does make a move, it’s a confident and determined one.  He makes decisions while considering and valuing the input of others and those closest to him.

2)  A Real Man Is Independent 

He does not need a woman in his life to be happy but he appreciates, loves, respects, and truly values her if she is.

3)  A Real Man Is Assertive

He stands up for for what he believes in, behind his convictions,  his words, and himself.  He does not seek approval, supplicate, or beg.  He is responsible for his own actions, and taking action when necessary.

4)  A Real Man Is Present 

He is there for his spouse or significant other, children, family, and friends. He supports them in the right way, and does not enable unhealthy behavior.

5)  A Real Man Welcomes Adversity

He invites cooperation and competition, because he knows his self-worth and is comfortable with his capabilities.  He is not afraid to ask questions when he doesn’t know the answer.

6)  A Real Man Is Honest

He knows being straight forward and upfront is the right thing to do.  He is faithful and respectful when it comes to managing his relationships (business and personal).

7)  A Real Man Has A Plan

He knows what he wants and he goes for it.  He develops a structure from which to act, and get’s better in accomplishing every successful step of it.

8)  A Real Man Is On The Level

He is able to  keep his cool in moments of stress and bends without breaking in the face of adversity and dire circumstances.

9)  A Real Man Has A Sense Of Timing

He knows when and when not to crack a joke.  He’s charming and chivalrous – in the right way (i.e. opening the door out of respect and appreciation, not because he feels he has to, or because she cant).

10)  A Real Man Embraces Success

He is not afraid to win and knows the value and growth that comes with losing.  He knows that a rising tide raises all boats, that there is plenty of room in the winner’s circle,  and wants others to succeed, too!

It’s amazing how easy it is to see the qualities of a real man, yet so many fail to on a daily basis.  Guys, what do you think?  Ladies, we love hearing your take, too.  Is there anything you would like to add?  Hit the share buttons below to sound off
