What is a gentleman? There is a long list of things that makes a gentleman. But know that It takes work. And it’s totally worth it.
Being a gentleman is more than ethics, principles and standards. It’s a way of life.
When we are able to elevate our skills, talents and abilities without compromising who we are at our core, we are able to be more.
Having standards (professional, respectful, and an all-round better) is what produces that “more”.

Challenged to be a gentleman
In 2011, Samuel’s (at the time) future wife, April, called him out on him not being a gentleman. He resisted. Love won. He shares about how one action changed the course of his future, which lead to marriage.
Being a gentleman and self-confidence
People tend to create rules and guidelines that they live by, whether they know they are doing it or not. Being a gentleman allows us to embrace a code of ethics that are appreciated and welcomed by many people.
This is where living successfully and well come in. Choose to be a gentleman. But what if I’m a girl you may ask. Apply the principles of a gentleman and watch amazing things happen.
