What Defines a Successful Man in Our Modern Times?

By  | 

The term “success” can be defined as… wait…how do people define success? According to the Google dictionary, the term success refers to “the accomplishment of an aim or purpose”. Well if we put it that way almost anything can be labeled as a success. 

For example, your aim for today was to pet your dog, you accomplished that “task” is that success? We don’t want to get too philosophical on this matter and we’ll just cut to the chase. 

Yes, success is the accomplishment of some aim, but what’s more important it’s the accomplishment of a purpose. Defining a successful man at any time can be difficult but we believe that that has become especially complicated in this day and age. 

So, we are going to present you with examples of habits and overall life tips of men who are considered to be universally successful in their business, family life and that are overall pleased with the way their life is going. 

Hare, we are going to cover everything from appearance to the matters of the mind. 

Looking Sharp

While many won’t admit that looking a certain way gives an overall impression of who you are we believe that the way you dress directly reflects who you are. Many successful men enjoy wearing suits. It’s a part of who they are and they do look the part they play. 

Also, men that wear suits know all the part of it so they don’t always look like they came out of the office. 

They know how to combine different parts of a suit for any occasion and will always look the part. On you can learn more about all the parts of a suit and how you can combine them for each and every occasion. Men that take care of themselves always look sharp and on point.   

Getting Enough Sleep 

Getting enough sleep is not only important for our look in the morning but is also crucial for our overall well being. Although there is a common belief that in order to become successful you must hustle 24/7 that’s not the case. People who become successful are people who sleep at night. 

Getting enough sleep means that you’ll be fresh in the morning. You’ll have a sharp focus, your mind will be clear and you won’t feel any fatigue during the day. Also, people who get enough sleep tend to wake up earlier, meaning they have more time to get ahead or to enjoy their hobbies. 

Making Time For Exercise

Successful men make their priority to make time for exercise. Founder of Ritual Gym Brad Robinson said: “I believe that taking care of yourself shows that a certain level of commitment and discipline is part of your character. In a world where we interact with more people on a daily basis than at any time in history, you don’t have very much time to make an impression — seconds matter.”

Not only that but regular exercises make you more focused, motivated and help you feel relaxed throughout the day. Billionaire Richard Branson says he wakes up at 5 am to play tennis or go biking and since he added this routine his productivity has doubled! 

Spending Time With Inspiring People 

You know the saying “misery loves company”. Well, ain’t that the truth. How many times have you been in the company of people who always complain about everything, who blame everyone around them for their failures and that are just generally very negative? Well, if you know this scenario you should fix it. 

“Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.” Mark Ambrose. That’s why successful people surround themselves with inspiring people. With people who talk about ideas, the future, what they are currently working on and are thankful for. Keep that in mind the next time a “friend” calls you up for a drink. 

Good Manners

Good manners can take a person a long way. Being polite and kind is one of those dying virtues. But hopefully, the new generation of people will remember these valuable qualities and will start cultivating them again. Although many say that being polite can be perceived as being a hypocrite that’s simply not true. 

Many people as soon as they become powerful forget about their moral compass and become plain rude and self-absorbed. And although people will be kind to those kinds of people (most of the time) in front of their faces, they will talk about them behind their backs the first chance they get. And if you want to become someone who is successful and respected good manners are the way to go. 


The most important thing to remember when it comes to success is the inner feeling you get when you find out what your purpose is and how you can benefit from it. You can embrace some of these great habits and tips that many successful men have been doing for years and years and see how they work for you. But we’ll let you in on a little secret. They do work.
