      Apart from being one of the most frequently used accessories for men, a wrist watch is the most convenient way to tell the time, irrespective of a man’s occupation. There are different kinds of watches, each coming with a particular style and design; some are designed for special occasions, while others are made for corporate attire. Regardless of the design and style, a good quality watch is the perfect accessory to demonstrate a man’s taste.

      Working with time has always been a crucial factor in the life of a hardworking man. Successful men are often measured by their relationship with time, such as time management and punctuality. Therefore, wearing an accessory that will help a man manage time properly is a sign of a responsible, committed and well-organized man.

      3. Shoes[3]

        Shoes are designed to protect and comfort the feet while engaging in various activities. Wearing uncomfortable shoes can have negative effects on a man’s personal well-being. As a man looking to complete a closet with the right shoes, you will only need at least two pairs of these shoes to cover all occasions and everyday use. For example, a pair of brogues shoes will cover everyday use, black cap toe leather oxfords will fit in well for business and formal occasions, loafers will blend for casual days, and dress boots are great for informal occasions.

        4. Sunglasses[4]

          Sunglasses are special accessories that often give an interesting touch to a man’s outfit. And of course, the eyes are sensitive; prolonged exposure to the sun can lead to a variety of ailments. Not only do sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful UV Rays, but they’re a man’s staple fashion accessory, adding a unique finishing touch to any outfit. The health benefit of wearing sunglasses far out-weighs its fashion magic.

          Though they do, at most times, seem like fashion accessories, they could really do well for a man. Sunglasses with 100% UVA and UVB protection provide full protection against the sun’s ultraviolet rays, while polarized sunglasses reduces glare. Thus, it is important for a man to own at least a pair, and use them appropriately to complement his fashion taste and protect the eyes.

          5. Belts[5]

            Every man should have at least 3 belts in his closet. Even though the trend nowadays is preferably for a man’s pants to fit without the need for a belt, they’re still a must-have fashion accessory because it is common for a man’s pants to stretch or sag as you wear them, and belts will help accentuate an outfit.

            For business and corporate men, a belt is necessary to break up some of your outfits, while making you appear simple and smart. However, it is very important for all men irrespective of occupation to have a dress belt, usually a dark brown or a black leather belt with a thin silver belt buckle, and a casual belt for everyday use, as a need for this might arise.

            6. A Briefcase or Messenger Bag[6]

              A messenger bag can bring so much more to the table for men and help make a fashion style complete. The briefcase is a classic piece for men due to it’s superior acceptance throughout the world. Therefore, good attire for a business purposes should be accompanied by a briefcase or messenger bag to carry a laptop, tablet, and other essential documents needed for formal use. Though some men prefer holding these items in-hand, it is unprofessional, and sends a message of being unorganized.

              Briefcases alone portray seriousness, and makes a man appear professional. Hence, every man should own a briefcase.

              There are many options for men as far as fashion accessories are concerned. Whichever a man ends up choosing to wear, he should remember: keep it simple, and ensure it suits the situation. Though some of these accessories are not necessarily needed for daily use, it doesn’t mean they will never be needed.

              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.

              Advertising

              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?”

              Advertising

              “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!
