Don’t think that becoming a high value man is only by wearing a nice dress, polite speech or a fragrant body.

It requires more than that.

The word “man” itself also makes it clear that you require a thorough thought and clearly define what you like or don’t like in life.

You have to be consistent in getting what you like and knowing how to say no to things that aren’t right for you.

Women like a man who is consistent, has a clear opinion, is not ambiguous in work as well as in love.

For them, it’s a trustworthy man to send their feelings to, but for bosses and colleagues, you’re a reliable person at work.

So, you want to become a high value man?

Don’t be overly concerned about your appearance.

Learn to be consistent and have your own opinion.

 2) Keep your promise and be on time

A gentleman never breaks a promise.

This is an extremely important element of a gentleman.

Keeping promises and punctuality is respecting other people’s time and respecting your own words.

Keeping promises requires you to carefully consider your decision before making.

If you feel you can help others, then speak up to help, and once you say it, by all means keep your word.

At work, keeping promises is highly valued, and if you are a reputable person, you will gain credibility, of course, your career will also be promoted.

 3) Dress well

Dress well can make a big difference in how you’re perceived.

High value men take care of their appearance because they understand the importance of looking good for themselves as well as for others.

Having a well-dressed appearance will tell other people that you take pride in your appearance and that you are in control of yourself.

There’s one thing for sure, a well-dressed man is more likely to be perceived as high value.

To dress well, you should try to avoid wearing items that are too casual or too flashy.

Instead, you should look for clothes that are well-fitting and stylish while also matching your personal style.

A well-dressed man will also keep himself clean and groomed at all times so that he looks good both inside and out.

So don’t forget to smell good.

By doing this, you will be able to make more connections that make people want to be around you.

 4) Affirm a personal style

A personal style is a group of core values that define you as a person.

It’s your unique way of doing things, and includes everything from your preferred clothing styles and hobbies to the way you think and behave.

A strong personal style can help you stand out from the crowd and also help you be more confident about yourself.

So you want to cultivate a personal style?

You have to be true to yourself.

Be honest with yourself about what you like and don’t like, and don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd.

You can learn a lot about yourself by looking at the clothes you wear, the way you groom yourself, and the hobbies and interests that you pursue.

Take some time each day to reflect on these things, and make sure that they are consistent with who you are as a person.

This will help you to define your personal style and come across as confident and competent.

 5) Have life purpose and passion

A life purpose and passion can go a long way towards helping you to become a high value man.

By identifying your life purpose, you can start to see yourself in a new light.

You can begin to understand what your strengths are and start to build on them.

By developing a passion, you can start to see yourself as someone who is driven and ambitious.

You can start to see yourself as someone who is willing to work hard and make sacrifices in order to achieve your goals.

A life purpose and passion will help you to build confidence and self-esteem, which will help you to become a high value man.

So, let’s start to decide who you want to be and then work toward becoming that person every day.

It’s a hard question, maybe.

I’ve been there, so let me show you how.

I can honestly say that this new way of finding purpose actually helped me to become a better version of myself.

6) Know the fundamentals of staying healthy

Maintaining good health is essential for a number of reasons.

Firstly, it will help you feel better overall.

Secondly, it will help you to look better as well.

Finally, it will help you to be able to perform better at work.

Therefore, it is important that you take care of your health.

It’s easier than you think.

First and foremost, you need to make sure that you eat healthy.

This means that you should make sure that you eat a healthy diet.

Besides eating healthy, you should also exercise regularly.

This will help you to keep your body fit and healthy.

Finally, you should try to avoid drinking too much alcohol.

This will help to keep your body hydrated.

By taking these simple steps, it is possible for you to become a high value man.

7) Say thank you and sorry at the right time

By knowing the right time and place to use thank you and sorry, you can become a polite man in others’ eyes.

When the other person has just done something nice for you or said something kind, this is a great time to show your appreciation and say “thank you”.

It’s important to keep gratitude on your mind at all times.

But that’s not all.

Saying sorry when you are wrong is also equally necessary.

When men apologize, it’s more about feeling remorseful and taking responsibility for a mistake that he made.

By apology, you show respect and care for the other person.

It shows that he is a high value man because he is willing to take responsibility for his actions.

So remember: Saying thanks and sorry is always appreciated!

8) Confidence is key

Confidence is an important trait for any man to have, because it can help you feel more comfortable with yourself and your surroundings.

When you are confident in who you are, it shows that you respect yourself and that you’re not afraid to stand out or be different.

When you feel confident, it shows in your body language and your interactions with others.

You’re also showing that you’re not insecure and anxious about what others think of you.

Confidence can also give you the courage to try new things to upgrade yourself that you might be nervous about.

However, confidence is not easy to come by.

It takes time and effort to build up.

You can start by making small changes to your behavior and appearance.

And remember to show confidence without being arrogant.

Or it will have the opposite effect on you.

9) Be proud of who you are

You are what you believe yourself to be.

Do not compare yourself to anyone else.

Do not let anyone else tell you who you should become or what kind of man you should be.

Become a high value man by being true to yourself and valuing the things that make you unique.

Take pride in who you are today, and become the kind of man that women can be proud to date.

This is attractive to people because it shows that you’re secure in who you are and willing to be yourself.

10) Have your own unique

It’s important to have some unique points that make people remember you well.

This doesn’t mean that you have to become an expert on everything or that you need to know everything about every topic.

But it does mean that you should spend some time thinking about what makes you different from other people.

What are your strengths?

What things do you love to do?

They can be your hobby such as: singing, playing instruments, photographing, etc.

Or they can be your ability to bring people together with your sociability, to make the atmosphere more exciting by your sense of humor.

These things will be shown in large gatherings where there are a lot of people.

And when someone values your unique qualities, they are more likely to show appreciation for all of the things that make you special.

So what can you do to identify your unique point?

Begin with yourself.

You can learn from the shaman Rudá Iandê. His life mission is to help people restore balance to their lives and unlock their creativity and potential. He has an incredible approach that combines ancient shamanic techniques with a modern-day twist.

In his excellent free video, Rudá explains effective methods to achieve what you want in life.

So if you want to unlock your endless potential and put passion at the heart of everything you do, start now by checking out his genuine advice.

11) Don’t be afraid to take risks

Taking risks and being willing to take risks is one of the most important things that you can do to become a high value man.

There is a big difference between being someone who is willing to try new things and being someone who is afraid to take risks.

Being someone willing to take risks will show that you are willing to explore new opportunities and be open to new experiences.

Being someone afraid to take risks will show that you are not willing to take chances and are instead only comfortable with what you already know.

You can start by doing things that you are not accustomed to doing.

For example, you can take up a new hobby or enroll in a training course.

Taking these new things may make you uncomfortable at first, but they will ultimately benefit you in the long run.

By risking it all and going after your dreams, you will be setting yourself up for success.

So don’t hesitate to take risks.

Just move forward and take action.

12) Constantly learning professional knowledge.

Knowing and mastering the knowledge of the profession you want to be successful in is an important first step.

This is true for both personal and professional life.

There are tons of resources available to educate yourself on a wide range of topics, from personal development (e.g. reading books) to technical expertise (e.g. attending conferences).

The key is to keep learning, explore new ideas and build your knowledge base.

I know that it takes commitment and discipline to keep learning.

However, it’s one of the best investments you can make as it will pay off in the long run.

As Benjamin Franklin said: “An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.”

So don’t put it off!

While it’s never too late to start, it’s best to start early.

Try to be a little better every day.

13) Constantly improve your skills.

Skills I mention here are all the skills you need in your life.

They include skills such as: critical thinking, creative thinking, lifelong learning, problem solving, time management, self-control, etc.

These skills can be adapted to many aspects of your life and career.

So, take the time to assess how well you can do them, and then actively work on improving the areas in which you are a little weaker.

You might be surprised at how quickly you see positive results when you take action.

14) Learn how to communicate effectively.

There are many different skills that it takes to be a high value man.

One of them is the ability to communicate effectively.

People don’t want to feel nervous, intimidated, or frustrated when they are around you.

They want to feel safe and comfortable.

If you want people to trust and respect you, then you need to develop excellent communication skills.

This can be done in a number of ways.

For example, you can listen closely when people are talking to you.

You can be compassionate and empathetic when other people are talking about their feelings.

And you can demonstrate your understanding of what someone is saying when they share something with you.

It’s easy isn’t it?

These all help people feel more comfortable around you and build trust.

15) Respect the elderly, women and children

The best way to become a high value man is by treating all people with respect.

Especially when they are the elderly, women and children – all valuable people in our society and deserve respect.

There is nothing wrong with appreciating or valuing these people.

This includes showing respect towards the elderly, being kind and compassionate to women, and avoiding being derogatory towards children.

By demonstrating that you care about other people, you will be seen as someone who is well-educated and has good character.

16) Willing to help others

A high value man is motivated by helping others.

  • They see their role as being a connector, a bridge builder, and a facilitator.
  • They are ones who see the world as a place of potential where we can all find our place and contribute meaningfully to the lives of others.
  • They are deeply engaged in the world around them, always looking for ways to improve things.
  • They are willing to empathize with others’ situations.
  • They are interested in people, not just things.
  • They want to make the world better, not just themselves better.
  • They are willing to do whatever it takes to help others become high value men too.

And that’s what makes people want to be around a high value man.

17) Keep calm in all situations

It doesn’t matter what kind of situation you’re in, if you’re not able to stay calm, it can lead to all sorts of problems.

Calmness allows you to think clearly, focus, and take action.

When you are calm, you can make better decisions and cope with problems better.

Being calm doesn’t mean you don’t get angry or frustrated.

It means that you manage your emotions well.

If you’re able to remain calm when everything starts going wrong, everyone will take notice and be much more likely to respect you.

Get this: keep calm at all times and people will notice the difference!


Going for what you want in life is difficult.

Needless to say, it takes a lot of work and dedication.

If you are feeling bad about yourself, it doesn’t matter.

Believe me, you can always work on improving by following many tips above.

And just like anything else in life, the more you do, the better you will get.

The only way you can truly become a high value man is by being a high value person all the time.
