Measure of a Man

At first, we may get attracted to people initially based on how they look, talk or carry themselves. But at the end of the day, what really matters, what truly draws us close to another person is what’s on the inside, their personality.

A few brands today have slogans that are so misleading and inaccurate. Take for instance Raymond’s “The complete man” or Tata Safari’s “Reclaim your life”. Does a suit make you a complete man? Can you reclaim your life with a car?

A simple example here is when we go to a shop to buy something. We may at first get attracted to what catches our eye. But eventually we buy what is lasting.

We spend a lot of time making sure we look good on the outside, but what are we doing to make sure we look good on the inside? What is beautiful radiates. A person is only beautiful, when their own inner beauty, is reflecting on to others.

I came across these tips on beauty sometime back which I had copied to my notes

Drink plenty of forgiveness….Keep your heart from being dirty and wrinkled with bitterness and vengeance. 

Exercise friendliness daily….Feel the warmth of friendliness and love inside of you.

Learn to listen….Remember that everyone has a story. Everyone has a past. Everyone needs to be heard. Focus less on talking, and try listening more. 


Here’s a lovely song by 4Him Measure of a Man

And what’s in the heart defines

The measure of a man
