These 10 Amazing Things Will Happen If You Grow a Beard

These 10 Amazing Things Will Happen If You Grow a Beard

While plenty of men may be annoyed by rapid growth of their beards; there can be a lot of benefits of growing a beard. While the usual trend is to shave beards daily, some men prefer to grow it for some really logical and valid reasons. It can be a really tough job to maintain your beard; trimming to even-up the surface of the beard and avoiding dandruff and lice from invading it, can really be a headache. However, if you can maintain your beard, the benefits attainable are worth the growing and maintaining process.

Let’s take a look at some of these amazing benefits of having a beard.

1. You look manly

Beard is the symbol of masculinity because only men can grow it. Having a beard makes you look strong and bold, which are heavily linked with manhood.

Though beards can also make you seem angry and cruel, these ‘bad-man’ features still account for the manliness. Most strong male figures, be it from present time or ancient history, are known to have grown beards. Men even complain at times that after a clean-shave, they look childish and less masculine. So, if you want to look manly, growing a proper beard might just be your next step.

2. You look sexier

As we already said, beard is the symbol of masculinity, so there is no doubt that it also accounts for a man’s sexiness. There are some women who prefer clean-shaved men over bearded ones, but there are also women who would kill for men with grown and well-maintained beards.

You can also try out different styles with your beard, and as style accounts for sexiness, proper beard-style is a great tool to attract women. Especially, if the woman you want to be with loves manly man, growing a beard can serve you well.

3. You look mature

Growing a beard makes you look mature, not only in terms of age, but also with the appearance of depth of your thoughts and understanding. It is a sort of a psychological thing that we see bearded men as mature; maybe it’s because we know that only fully-grown men can grow beard.

Speaking by age, having a beard and not having it can alter your age by up-to five or six years. One might say: why would I want to seem older than how I really am? But there are times when you just need that trick, like when you’re trying to impress people with your maturity.

4. You can try out different facial hair-styles

As we mentioned earlier, beard is a distinct facial feature in male and people tend to relate style of beard with personality.

You can switch your facial hair-styles by trimming the beard, whether it be with an electric shaver or with a straight razor, or growing it in a new way such that you can impress people around you. Now, only having a mustache can also be a facial hair-style but having a beard offers you a much larger palette of styles.

5. You get philosopher looks

Having a beard not only makes you look mature but also portrays you as a wise person. Perhaps, people consider bearded men to be wise because they assume that they are so lost in their deep thoughts that they don’t even care to cut their beard. You can notice that famous figures in history like Confucius, Jesus, Sigmund Freud, Karl Marx and Jim Morrison wore a beard. If you have a considerably long beard, it’s very likely that people will take you for an artist, a philosopher, a poet, a musician or a writer.

6. You can look like famous people

Beards are highly significant and descriptive feature of a man’s face. In fact, many famous men are known for the style and length of their beard. You can very easily look like famous folks by adapting their distinctive style of beard. From Charles Darwin to Che Guevara and Clark Gable to Hulk Hogan, beards have regularly been trademark of renowned personalities.

It’s of no use if you want to look like a famous person with no beard, but if you want to look like a person who wears a beard, you really need to grow one.

7. You can portray yourself as a busy man

Everyone knows the fact that it takes considerably long time to grow a proper beard. If you usually cut your beard but suddenly grow it, your friends will most probably say, “Hey, were you busy or something? Seems like you didn’t get time to cut your beard.” Despite some people who might call you carefree, others might consider you busy and hard-working man.

So, if you want to appear to be a busy, diligent and work-loving person, growing your beard might be a very easy and realistic way to achieve that.

8. Your beard protects your face from sun rays

Beards when fully-grown cover a significant area of your face. It has been known that beard protects your face from the sun’s rays. It is very beneficial for your skin. Sun rays can cause leathery skin, wrinkles and even skin cancer in worst cases. According to researchers at University of Southern Queensland, beards can block up-to 95% of sun’s harmful UV rays.

While there is a possibility of being left with uneven skin tone at the areas where beard can’t reach, the protection beard provides from chronic sun damage is worth growing it.

9. Your beard keeps your face warm

A beard, in fact, is just a segment of the body hair in mammals. Human race has considerably lost the amount of body hair in the course of evolution, but beard still remains prominent in human males.

The main function of body hair is to keep the body warm and since beard is just another part of body hair, it has the ability keep your face warm. Beard acts as an insulator and prevents heat from escaping the face. So, if you are looking for a face-blanket for this winter, start growing a beard.

10. You can even have an easy way to pass time

Many might find this idea really weird, but if you have a beard, you can kill time just by playing with it. Some people enjoy stroking their beard while thinking or when they’re bored. It can now become a part of your persona. If you are bored and have a long beard, you can even trim, wash or comb your beard to survive the boredom. While you spend time grooming your beard, you are escaping boredom and maintaining your beard at the same time.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
