These days, there are a lot of little boys that can shave running around and a shortage of “real” men. I don’t mean real men in a sense that they eat red meat, drive a truck, watch sports and drink beer, I mean men of integrity, men that are honest and hardworking. Chris Young’s classic single, “The Man I Want To Be,” is the perfect example of how men should strive to be.
1. Be good.
2. Do the right thing.
3. Be confident in yourself.
“I wanna be the kind of man the mirror likes to see.”
4. Be strong.
5. Admit when you’re wrong.
6. Stick around.
7. Be the man she sees a future with.
“I wanna be the kind of man that she sees in her dreams.”
8. A man of God.
9. A man who does, not just says.
“Well, I know this late at night that talk is cheap.”
10. A giver.
11. A prayer.
“God, I’m asking you to come change me, to the man I want to be.”
