How do we garner our self-respect?
Why should we bother?
To make us happy and fulfilled of course. A man who respects himself is respected by others. A leader is a winner in this world. Someone who respects himself is worth following. Other men and women will look up to him and take his lead.
Let’s be real. People do judge a book by its cover. All the time people are giving off subconscious as well as bloody obvious signals about each other.
A man who has broad shoulders, a strong jawline, walks with his shoulders back and his chin up is going to be respected far more than someone who looks weak, skinny or fat. For anyone that feels that they are weak, skinny or fat, it’s not time to be ashamed. It’s time to accept the harsh reality that it’s time to change, unlike 95% of men who will be upset about how ‘unfair’ the world treats them.
This is a wake up call for a lot of men.
All change starts first with realisation and acceptance. Next, takes action.
Is it really superficial to judge a book by it’s cover?
Yes, of course there are always exceptions. Some men are naturally taller, have nice hair and are more attractive but you can’t fake someone that has genuinely put in the effort and that have tried to reach their genetic potential and become the best version of themselves. Physical attraction is natures way of manifesting how well you function and what resources you have.
What you can control:
Why do those points matter for commanding respect?
Your respect is determined mostly by the way you act and you look because both things are represented by how well you’ve grown up, your hardships, struggles, physical exercise and nutrition, amongst other things.
If you can level up these things which you can control then you will be respected far more. All these points link together; your state is going to represent a high status man. You know this man is high status because of his body language; he owns the space around him and takes almost a regal-like stance; showing high testosterone and serotonin levels. These hormones that he creates through his body language and current state increase his overall energy levels. He then uses this to go to the gym which also increases other feel good hormones and allows for him to release any aggression in a controlled and disciplined manner. Overtime, the way this mans lifestyle plays out has meant that he has a strong masculine physique and a more attractive face.
CALL TO ACTION
Stop being a victim and take control of your life. With what you can now control, work on these points and make yourself a high status individual that earned his respect and is successful in life.
If you imagine yourself at work or at home while colleagues and family talk about how much they aspire to be like you and you want this to be you. Then I recommend the book Higher Status.
