As I was out and running, I got to thinking about a lot of the emails and questions that have been sent to me over the last few months, quite a few here. What I see again and again are people emailing a question that’s sort of like this, and it goes, Carl, I want to dress better. Carl, I want to improve my style, but I don’t want to stand out. I don’t want to be the best dressed guy in the room. I’m worried about what my boss, what my peers, what my wife, what my friends are going to think. It’s really hard for me to answer that question because I feel that there’s something deeper here, and really, I think that there are many of us who are afraid to be ourselves. What do I mean by that? Well, I saw a great saying the other day and it said, Be yourself because everybody else is taken, and I love that. So many of us, we go through life and we try to be like other people. We look around and we try to blend in. We try to be like those around us and you’re never going to be great, you’re never going to be exceptional if you are just trying to be like other people. You have to find out who you are as a man, accept it, and then live and work hard to be the best man, to be the best you that you can be. Guys, it’s something that I think starts with a bit of pride.

It starts with confidence, and I’m talking healthy pride here. How do you develop that? For me, it’s about knowing a bit of history and that’s what I talk about in a lot of my posts. I try to give you guys a background on clothing. I think the military heritage of clothing really helps for making it more masculine for a lot of gentlemen. Another thing is to know your personal history, so look at where you come from. My father came from Guanajuato, Mexico, and knowing that and having that connection, I don’t have a problem wearing the Guayabera. I think that if you can start bringing in things like that, so if you’re Scottish, seriously consider some of the options that come from your homeland and look to your past to have the strength to move forward into the future. Accomplishments, and I’m not talking there are many of this. If you’re seeking to be the richest man in the world, good luck with that. There’s only one person that’s going to be the richest man in the world. Really, what you accomplish isn’t so important. Instead, what you have to start with and what you can accomplish with that is to me the better measure of truly what a man is.

So look at what you have, the gifts that you’ve been given, and do the best with what you have. Again, gentlemen, you’ve got to accept who you are. You’ve got to realize that you are the only you out there. Embrace that and become the man you know you can be. All right guys, this has been Carl. Have a great day and I’ll see you guys in the next post. Bye-bye.
