A man is Strong; Men are strong both physically and mentally. A man’s mental strength is not defined in the times of triumph but in times of failure. It is only when pushed to a near breaking point does a true man become defined. Does he quit or does he get up and try again? Does he let himself be suppressed or does he rise to free himself from defeat?
A man is Decisive; A good man takes the time to think before he acts. His emotions do not decide his fate but rather his mind and when he comes to a conclusion, he sticks with it.
A man is Confident; Never to be deterred, a good man follows the beat of his own drum. He knows that the path he is on will lead him to where he wants to go. He does not let the questions of others bombard his mind or make impressions on his heart.
A man Knows When To Admit His Mistakes and Owns Up To Them; Even good men make mistakes. The test of a good man comes in how he makes up for the mistakes he has made. Does he repent and ask forgiveness from those he has harmed or does he shy away in shame at what he has done?
A man is Responsible; A good man is not only responsible but also takes responsibility for his actions. He can be trusted to live by his word and in times of his short comings, he does not simply brush it off.
A man is Kind; A good man does not play with a person’s emotions and makes sure that his intentions are made clear. He gives to those who give to them and helps where he sees a need.
A man is a Protector; Never to be toyed with, a good man does not back down when his loved ones are in danger.
A man Understands His Woman; The true test of a man comes in his daily interactions with the one he calls his own. He knows her deepest secret and delves into the dark parts of her heart. A man knows and understands that without fully understanding the woman he is with, that any relationship between the two will fail.
