Which Beard Style Is Right for You?

Which Beard Style Is Right for You?

If you could grow a beard, which kind would you want to have?

A lot of decisions are to be made when deciding on the right facial hair style. Having a beard is a big commitment. There are some reasons you should have one and some why you should not. The beard is symbolically associated with masculinity, but the fact remains that images like the ones on the Sistine chapel tell a very different story. In those images, God is the one with the beard, not man. With a beard, you can wield a power so awesome that Zeus himself foretold of its power.

This man is at competition for beards, it’s a guys competition but women are welcome to watch, and do. A bearded man can make a women weak in the knees, and the kids will never shy away from a Santa with a majestic beard like this one.

    Pros: Women love them, men love them, why don’t you have one?

    The benefits of having a beard would compile into a very large list. You can look fatherly for your children and manly for your woman. If you can’t grow a full beard there’s nothing to fear, you can always get products to make your facial hair grow better. Can’t see it? Dye it. Your facial hair is perfect, even if you are a woman.

      Cons: None

      Okay, sometimes food gets caught in it, but that isn’t that bad is it? It’s just another thing to wash later and there are shampoos and oils just for beard hygiene. The fact is that there is no reason that you shouldn’t grow a beard if you can. This is not just a trend, beards are here to stay. Unless men somehow become some sort of hairless freaks, beards will be popular. If a beard looks good on you than you have to grow one, at least once.

        This is literally me with a beard.  

        So which kind do you want?

        There are many types of beards. You can let the mustache grow or trim it like I did. Put wax in you mustache and curl it up, get creative with it and shape your beard into something wonderful. Do you want a small one? Trim it then. You can shave a goatee, or even a strip on the jawline. There are more than enough ways to shape it up. There are world beard championships and they have 17 different categories for beards and mustaches that they judge.

          The Garibaldi is a rounded beard thats wide on the sides and is medium in length. the mustache is not very long but if you don’t like to trim the sides this is the beard for you. Many people don’t like to comb their beard and all you would have to do to look like this would be to not do that. At all.

            This one is The Kaiser and is basically a twisted mustache. If you don’t like your mustache to be in the way this one is right for you. It’s classical and classy with a hint of eccentricity. This is a winner from the World Beard Championships, but this might look better on you. A long mustache can be cool aesthetic especially if combined it with the beard.

              This Freestyle beard is not a category to be taken lightly. A lot of work was put into the making of this beard. You have to shape and shape, and use lots of hair product. But if you’re diligent enough you can have a beard as crazy as this one!

                And then we have the traditional beard. These beards have one thing in common. The men that grow them don’t shave, at all, for a very long time. This is will power at its finest. Just don’t shave for about 20 years and you’ll have this result. I don’t think this man has ever bought a razor in his life, or used one.

                Why Is Goal Setting Important to a Truly Fulfilling Life?

                Why Is Goal Setting Important to a Truly Fulfilling Life?

                In Personal Development-speak, we are always talking about goals, outcomes, success, desires and dreams. In other words, all the stuff we want to do, achieve and create in our world.

                And while it’s important for us to know what we want to achieve (our goal), it’s also important for us to understand why we want to achieve it; the reason behind the goal or some would say, our real goal.

                Why is goal setting important?

                1. Your needs and desire will be fulfilled.

                Sometimes when we explore our “why”, (why we want to achieve a certain thing) we realize that our “what” (our goal) might not actually deliver us the thing (feeling, emotion, internal state) we’re really seeking.

                For example, the person who has a goal to lose weight in the belief that weight loss will bring them happiness, security, fulfillment, attention, popularity and the partner of their dreams. In this instance, their “what” is weight-loss and their “why” is happiness (etc.) and a partner.

                Six months later, they have lost the weight (achieved their goal) but as is often the case, they’re not happier, not more secure, not more confident, not more fulfilled and in keeping with their miserable state, they have failed to attract their dream partner.

                After all, who wants to be with someone who’s miserable? They achieved their practical goal but still failed to have their needs met.

                So they set a goal to lose another ten pounds. And then another. And maybe just ten more. With the destructive and erroneous belief that if they can get thin enough, they’ll find their own personal nirvana. And we all know how that story ends.

                2. You’ll find out what truly motivates you

                The important thing in the process of constructing our best life is not necessarily what goals we set (what we think we want) but what motivates us towards those goals (what we really want).

                The sooner we begin to explore, identify and understand what motivates us towards certain achievements, acquisitions or outcomes (that is, we begin moving towards greater consciousness and self awareness), the sooner we will make better decisions for our life, set more intelligent (and dare I say, enlightened) goals and experience more fulfilment and less frustration.

                Advertising

                We all know people who have achieved what they set out to, only to end up in the same place or worse (emotionally, psychologically, sociologically) because what they were chasing wasn’t really what they were needing.

                What we think we want will rarely provide us with what we actually need.

                3. Your state of mind will be a lot healthier

                We all set specific goals to achieve/acquire certain things (a job, a car, a partner, a better body, a bank balance, a title, a victory) because at some level, most of us believe (consciously or not) that the achievement of those goals will bring us what we really seek; joy, fulfilment, happiness, safety, peace, recognition, love, acceptance, respect, connection.

                Of course, setting practical, material and financial goals is an intelligent thing to do considering the world we live in and how that world works.

                But setting goals with an expectation that the achievement of certain things in our external, physical world will automatically create an internal state of peace, contentment, joy and total happiness is an unhealthy and unrealistic mindset to inhabit.

                What you truly want and need

                Sometimes we need to look beyond the obvious (superficial) goals to discover and secure what we really want.

                Sadly, we live in a collective mindset which teaches that the prettiest and the wealthiest are the most successful.

                Some self-help frauds even teach this message. If you’re rich or pretty, you’re happy. If you’re both, you’re very happy. Pretty isn’t what we really want; it’s what we believe pretty will bring us. Same goes with money.

                When we cut through the hype, the jargon and the self-help mumbo jumbo, we all have the same basic goals, desires and needs:

                Joy, fulfilment, happiness, safety, peace, recognition, love, acceptance, respect, connection.

                Advertising

                Nobody needs a mansion or a sport’s car but we all need love.

                Nobody needs massive pecs, six percent body-fat, a face lift or bigger breasts but we all need connection, acceptance and understanding.

                Nobody needs to be famous but we all need peace, calm, balance and happiness.

                The problem is, we live in a culture which teaches that one equals the other. If only we lived in a culture which taught that real success is far more about what’s happening in our internal environment, than our external one.

                It’s a commonly-held belief that we’re all very different and we all have different goals — whether short term or long term goals. But in many ways we’re not, and we don’t; we all want essentially the same things.

                Now all you have to do is see past the fraud and deception and find the right path.
