Three Traits All Excellent Men Possess

We’re here today with the three most vital and important traits you need to posses in order to the most epic-ally awesome dude possible.

1. Character

You need to have good integrity and this means treating people well and doing good things. This means even little things like opening doors for others and saying “please” and “thank you”.

2. Attractiveness

Don’t mistake this for being graced with incredible looks or hitting the genetic lottery. What we’re talking about here is taking care of your appearance, your style, and your grooming. Attractiveness is also tied very closely to your personality – developing humor, confidence, and being the type of person others want to be around all go a long way in increasing your attractiveness.

3. Money and power

We hate to admit it to ourselves, but these two things are are helpful in being able to dictate how we want to live our lives.

We’re all going to strive to reach all three of these goals, but in reality Eric points out that you should realistically strive to posses at least two of the above points. Being a good-looking guy, but treating everyone around you poorly isn’t going to work. Being a nice guy, but not working hard and saving up some money isn’t going to cut it if you want to be epically awesome.

And this brings us to the enemy of the urban beardsman – the main-street guy who doesn’t invest in himself, floats through life, and never progresses. Eric readily admits that he used to be that type of guy, but finally decided to take a step back and take a harder look at himself. But what he did – and what he recommends to every guy out there – is to strive for two of the traits above, and the third will come to you.
