Bro Guide to Being the Man

Who doesn't want to be 'The Man.' You know, that guy everyone wants to be friends with or says they know. When there is a party or gathering he is the type of person who always makes it just that much cooler. The type of guy that has your back no matter what, is cool like the other side of the pillow, and embodies everything that 'The most interesting man in the world' is all about.

So why aren't you that guy? You can be you know.

It's not like 'that guy' is some genetic marvel of coolness with an extra set of chromosomes in his DNA that you don't have. It's not about how you look, how you dress, or how much money you make. Sure it takes a little bit of work, but everything good in life does. In this case, it is just a matter of following some rules rather religiously. They aren't overly complex or tough to do. Heck you probably want to do this kind of stuff but just don't do it all the time.

Rules to Being the Man

1.     Confidence - Be confident no matter what you are doing. This doesn't mean be a cocky prick, but if you are going to do something then skip the fear and worry and just do it and own it. Tea party with your kids? Yeah you sip it and pretend that it burned your mouth.

2.     Impressive - Don't waste time trying to impress people, just be impressive in the way you handle yourself and do things.

3.     Friends - A good friend is worth more than anything in the world. Always be there for your friends to encourage, support, or whatever else they need you for. Remember, how your treat a person says more about you and less about them. Be the kind of guy everyone is proud to have as a friend.

4.     Women - In regards to dating; don't worry so damn much. Either she will like you or she won't but as long as you keep being the same awesome guy then eventually the right girl will come your way. In regards to a girlfriend or wife; treat her like you did the first few months you dated and your relationship will always be the envy of everyone else (and you will get laid a lot).

5.     Speaking - Only talk when you have something important to say, not just to be heard. Being the center of attention is not always being the life of the party. Also think about what you are going to say before you say it because shoving your foot in your mouth is never a good move.

6.     Manners - If you don't have them then get them. Having good manners and being a gentleman are timeless qualities that never go out of style.

7.     Trying - Classic words Bro - Do or do not; there is no try. Really in life "can't" is a four letter word. So get out there and give it everything you have no matter what it is.

8.     Glass Half-Full - Always be positive Bro. You never know what is going to happen. Dwelling on mistakes, living in the past, or living with regret isn't living. So think to yourself, "What can I do to make this situation more awesome?" Then do it.

9.     Bragging - If it was that cool then everyone will know it or talk about it. Let what you do define how cool you are, not you telling everyone about it trying to convince them how cool you are.

10. Respect - Everyone gets it until they lose it; then you just ignore those people in life because they aren't worth your time or energy.

 Remember, life is meant to be lived. So carpe the fuck out of this diem cause when it's over it's over.
