Sometimes I think movies and literature sum it up best on occasion to answer these kind of questions: “Don’t try to be a great man, just be a man.” – Star Trek: First Contact …but really this should be something you should have learned from male role models in your life. Take what you have been taught and apply it and learn from the mistakes and rewards that come along.

Being able to write well is going to impress a lot of people. You want to impress future employers with your writing abilities before you even meet them in person. A large vocabulary also helps.

There is a point where in the mix of tact and honesty which is just about the best thing ever. As soon as you can tell your girlfriend she needs to lose 10 pounds without actually offending her, then you've reached said point. This earns a great respect.

An other thing is thinking before you act. A lot of kids and teens act before they think; don't. Think first, act later.

I've learned that if you want respect you don't go looking for it. You just follow your own personal scruples and hope for the best.

Surround yourself with people you can trust and count on and who will trust you and count on you. Understand that people make mistakes. Understand that only you can loose your respect. A person must learn to respect themselves before they can be respected.

These are little things I've learned. In the end it boils down to only being answerable to yourself. If you can live with yourself at the end of the day then your doing alright.
