America, isn’t is time for men & women to actively demonstrate greater awareness, kindness & respect?
With so many “relationship challenged” Americans, a majority of men/women would agree to celebrating this idea.
They would be willing to try a different path to happiness.
Writer/physician Dr. Michael Hall, author of The American Gentleman can help: A Contemporary Guide to Chivalry (1st Books Library, $10.50 paperback, $3.95 e-book).
Hall has taken a leadership role in the development of a modern view of the “gentleman” – a man who actively pursues the chivalric high road.
He realizes his character is linked to his deeds.
With a fresh twist on the topic in today’s society, Hall looks to some past philosophy and traditions to develop a current guide towards civility plus kindness.
Hall encourages readers to improve personal character and promotes this idea by asking the reader to focus on what is truly more important: loved ones, family & community.
“Many men and women have become preoccupied with their own needs and have forgotten about others, making them dismiss their personal, parental and social responsibilities,” he explains.
“It’s time for men to rethink their priorities to make the necessary changes to become an American gentleman.”
So how does one become a gentleman in a modern day world?
He or she simply has to think of others before himself.
Hall provides many examples the framework to lead a more chivalrous life: Seek greatness in character.
“Often men/women are unwilling to invest in one another.
They instead are seeking to know what makes each other vulnerable,” Hall says.
Know that romance is wonderful. “It is never unmanly to be romantic to be ale to enjoy romance,” he says.
Advocate honor and respect for women, no matter who they are or what role they have in society.
According to Hall, “By celebrating womanhood, a man remakes himself.”
Place the concern of others before one’s own. “A gentleman enjoys sharing –whether a newspaper, a sandwich or his wife’s kindness,” says Hall.
“Being a gentleman compels others to become more civil and kind” says Hall. “By applying some of the philosophies highlighted in the book, men will see they are impacting others lives in a more positive way.”
