More than anything else, a gentleman is defined by his attitude and behaviours, here's what I think is most important…

1) Confidence goes a long way…
“Don’t confuse confidence with cockiness, be assured in the presentation of yourself. Look people in the eye and speak clearly. Act like you should be there and people will assume you should be. You have no idea how many times I've been somewhere that I wasn't meant to be and ended up getting in and having a great time of it. Be kind to people, above and below you. Being mean spirited just shows insecurity, fear and smallness.”

2) Be Focused…
“Focus on what makes you happy, what makes you enjoy the time you have. Don't try and do too many things at once, you end up not doing any of them very well.”

3) Don’t Settle…
“Don't waste time with people who waste your time. Don't accept something that's not what you want. Don't accept the rules as they are, question and break them to find out what your own rules are. Surround yourself with people who push you to become more like the person you want to be.”

4) Say Less, Do More…
“If there's one thing I've learned it is to stop talking about myself. Ask questions, be present and intelligently interested. Forget your phone, checking your messages, etc. Be where you are and participate more fully with the people you're with. You'll soon realize how much you've been missing, plus, when other people aren't putting in their fair share, then refer to No.3 and seek out new people. You'll find that you get more done because you spend less time talking about all the things you're ‘gonna do’.”

5) Life is Uncertain…
“By its nature, life is uncertain and unpredictable. One of the biggest decisions you need to make is how much risk you're comfortable with taking and then go after what you want with the full understanding it could all blow up in your face at any moment. Enjoy the ride.”
