Being a tall man such as yourself has both its drawbacks and advantages, as I’m sure you’re well aware of by now.Despite all the comments about how you must be good at basketball or how you can keep a closer eye on the weather, a tall man has some real perks going for him, and not just these made-up ones that people assume apply to you.
You might have seen being a tall man as something to be ashamed of, but no longer! Boost your self-esteem and attention-grabbing confidence by keeping these five simple things in mind:
Being tall is considered manly.Yes, you read that right! Shorter men are often looked down on (no pun intended) as being “less” of a man that those who are naturally tall.Your height helps you exude charm, whether you want it or not, and let’s face it – most women prefer a man who is taller than they are. Go for it, guys!
Tall men tend to look more mature.While you would think that this would initially be a drawback, that’s hardly the case! People seem to naturally respect those that are taller than they are, and look up to (pun absolutely intended) those who tower over them in height.If you’re tall man, you know what we’re talking about. Your height helps you seem older, wiser and beyond your years. Make it work for you however you wish.
A tall man radiates authority.It’s true! As previously mentioned, tall men seem to be in positions of authority more than their shorter counterparts. A common tendancy is that CEO’s are of above-average height, with most skimming the treetops at over six feet.Being tall works well in the business field, which is something to keep in mind the next time you’re looking for a job – or asking for a promotion.
Height is good for sports.This is natural, of course, especially for height-related sports like basketball. The theory that all tall men play sports well, however, is a misconception. Height doesn’t account for skill or training, but it does give you a distinct advantage over those who are shorter in stature.While you might not be able to run faster or hit harder, you will be able to reach higher and throw farther – a definite plus for your team!
Tall men look leaner.The taller you are, the more your weight distributes evenly throughout your body, or so the theory goes. At 6’3” and 284 pounds, you look muscled and powerful. Knock that height down to 5’7” with that weight, and people would say you’re obese.A lot of it has to do with perspective, but this is absolutely true: the taller you are, the leaner you look.
You should feel good about being a tall man in today’s society! There are some real advantages to it, all of which you can make work in your favor with a little bit of perseverance and a positive attitude.What do YOU like about being a tall man?
