It’s not hard to act like a true Gentleman, regardless of your background, ethnicity, social standing and age, so why do so many men forget this simple but highly effective tool for earning respect and attention?
I can only think that over the last few decades the art of being a Gentleman has been lost, left behind in today’s busy life’s, work pressures and the demands of home and family matters.
Maybe it’s just me but it feels like the art of being a Gentleman is slowly diminishing with every passing generation. The traits of acting in a chivalrous manner are not ones governed by any social grade, they are not the privilege of the upper class nor should they be only associated to those with wealth or status – acting like a Gentleman requires nothing but a free will and choice.
Whether or not you’re a man who believes in opening a door for a lady or offering a helping hand to those in need, the simple fact remains, actions speak louder than words.
If you want to be respected, admired and referred to in a positive way then act in a manner that earns you these values.
It matters not if you’re losing your hair, it has no relevance on how you act towards others.
Be remembered for your actions and not just the way you look, the attention this brings you will be the attention that can only help your self-esteem, confidence and lift your spirits when you’re feeling down.
Whether you’re on a date, out with your partner/wife, simple and courteous acts can make the difference between a long term or, ‘he was a bit of an arse’, relationships.
Don’t be remembered as just a bald guy, be remembered as Gent, it will be passed onto others – you never know where the next potential partner might be.
There are no excuses to not act like a Gent, I don’t believe a true man ever forgets this and I hope that more of you learn to be just that little bit more considerate when it comes to others.
The graphic above illustrates that it costs nothing to be a Gent (well apart from paying for dinner), all it takes is a little consideration, thought and actions.
Treat people how you would want them to treat you, act in a manner that earns you respect and ultimately the attention this brings you will be something lasting and memorable, an impression you want to leave.
