A good celebrity role model is hard to find. George Clooney is our pick for this months Celebrity Role Model and here are 6 very simple ways you can be more like him.
We all know he is probably one of the most attractive gentlemen in the world today and the reason is simple.
He has the perfect mix of style, confidence, attitude, smile, and is always fun to be around.
If you use him as a roll model and learn from his example, you can be just as attractive and successful as him.
What can you do to be more like George Clooney?
Lets Start with Style
This is the easiest thing to change and you can do it today with a quick trip to the mall. Google George Clooney and look at all his pictures online. What do you see? George has mastered the simple modern gentlemen look.
Most of the time, he is wearing a dark suit and usually paired with a dark colored shirt. That suit is fitted to him perfectly. Let me say this again.
THAT SUIT IS FITTED TO HIM PERFECTLY! I truly believe if you cannot wear a properly fitted suit, then don’t wear one at all!
When you buy a suit, the standard is the pants will be 6 inches smaller then the pants. If you wear a 32 waist, then your jacket size will be a 38. If your jacket is a 42, then your pants will be a 36. This is how off the rack suits are made.
If you have different measurements, you must buy your suit jacket and pants ‘separately’. When you buy the suit separately, you can match the jacket to your upper body and the pants to your lower body and save a lot of money in tailor costs.
The suit should still be tailored but if you are in a crunch and need a suit today, this is the way to go.
Even if your life doesn’t need a suit, buy a few and wear them. You cannot capture this classic style without a fitted suit.
I would say 90% of the time George is wearing a jacket and totally rocking it. But there are a few times you can see him wearing a black shirt, jeans, and a black leather jacket. This is the second look to get.
Simple is key here. No crazy colors or trendy styles in George’s closet.
Simple, classic, and elegant is the goal for this style. Also note he is not trying to look 20 years younger than he is. He can wear leather jacket, jeans, and a black tee and still look age appropriate.
Lastly, get a haircut, nice pair of shoes (ladies always notice a guy’s shoes), and make sure you smell nice. If you are over weight, check out my article on how I lost 40 pounds in 4 months while doing Intermitted Fasting (IF for short). Tip, buy the suit after you do ‘IF’ because you will drop so much weight you will need to buy a whole new wardrobe.
Show Your Confidence and Attitude
Style and Attitude go hand in hand. How you wear your suit is just as important as how you conduct yourself.
George wears his confidence just as well as his fitted suits. This is another key element of a modern gentleman today.
You must be confident in yourself and show it in everything you do.
How can you have confidence without arrogance? Follow these rules.
The first thing is to reprogram your brain. You must believe 100% that you are going to succeed. Don’t ever start talking to a person with any doubt or fear in your head because that will be all you communicate to them.
Confidence is simply your belief in yourself and the idea that you will be successful. Once you believe this, you will show it in the little things you do everyday and instantly be more confident and attractive.
One key difference between being confident and arrogant is the subject of your conversation. Never talk about how great or successful you are.
Confident people will always complement other people and make the conversation about them. This in turn will make you more likable which is always a good thing.
Once you believe in yourself, you need to show this in the little things you do.
People can quickly pick up this form of nonverbal communication. When you feel fully confident in yourself, you will naturally do other things when you interact with other people.
You will not divert your glaze when you make eye contact, your smile will naturally appear, you will feel more comfortable around other people and engage in conversation easily, and your body language will show a much more relaxed posture. This will take practice!
Now that you know you will be successful, you need to be more humble about yourself. No one wants to hear you talk about all your successes in life.
Bragging is never an attractive quality. Look for qualities in other people and learn from them.
Never see yourself as the greatest person in the room. See yourself as the greatest student in the world and everyone else is your teacher.
Take learning as a growth opportunity to help you succeed. A gentleman is always well read and up to date on current affairs. Political views aside, learn how to stand up for your views and be accepting of other peoples opposing opinions.
Your values are apart of your character and your character makes you great, but not all situations call for expressing your opinions in public.
A gentleman knows how to make small talk and can engage anyone in meaningful conversation while avoiding inappropriate topics.
Body language is another important aspect of a celebrity role model and improving and being more like George. When you are around other people, you need to:
- Look people in the eye
- Be respectful
- Stand or sit up straight but be relaxed
- Properly Introduce yourself to someone new.
- Greet someone with a confidant handshake
Let me break this to you. You are not perfect so don’t try to pretend you are.
Only a fool will believe you are perfect and we should not entertain fools.
One great way is to learn to laugh at yourself in a fun and gentle way and you will show the world you are human just like them. Trust me, everyone will love you for it too.
We all know George is incredibly charming and this is one of the core reasons why he has been so successful in his life. His charm combined with his confidence allows him not take himself too serious and this makes him more likable. He has a natural boy like charm that ladies just fall in love with and you can do this too.
Being charming requires you to do the following things.
- Be Funny and Light Hearted
- Be Optimistic
- Complement others often
- Be Helpful, Nice, and Generous
- Be Warm and Approachable
- Always be Respectful
- Be Humble
- Be Smooth (but never perverted)
Charm will get you far in life. It will open doors and provide opportunities as well as find you the women of your dreams. As the saying goes, “With great power comes great responsibility.” Make sure you use your charm for good and not just to take advantage of a situation.
Charm in the hands of great character will accomplish great things but in the hands of someone with poor character will have equally negative results.
You should not change yourself just to impress others. Be genuine and true to yourself and show the world who you really are. This will bring you true happiness and will attract people to you that you want around.
Genuine people share their true thoughts, beliefs and opinions with the world and not what they feel others want to hear.
Genuine people are driven in life by their true beliefs and do not follow the crowd. They are not concerned about impressing other people and they are guided by their hearts. This is the sign of a true gentleman.
This may be hard for some people but is a critical step to find true happiness in life. You must know what you believe in order to set your direction in life. Make sure you reflect on this often because life is always changing and you need to keep up with it.
It is also critical for you to know your own limitations in life and embrace them. Do not pretend or hide from reality but rather get over them if you can or accept them if you cannot.
See the world (and yourself) as it truly is, decide when you want to go in life, and then make it happen. Life is really that simple!
Genuine people are those who have great self-esteem. They can be open with other people because they are not hiding anything. They are in fact an open book.
When you lie to yourself and to others, you automatically become guarded and always defensive. When you are genuine and open, you are able to connect with others and truly build new friendships and relationships.
Have Great Character
Character is how you treat those who can do nothing for you. George has a reputation of treating everyone with the highest degree of respect and he truly doesn’t care about your social status or where you are from. He is often seen as a guy’s “Guy” and very easy to talk to.
Some people like George are more likable than others, and that is mainly because of their unique character – (outgoing, friendly, talkative, down-to-earth and honest).
People prefer loyal, courageous and moral people, and if you have decided to improve your character, then here are some of the most important things you need to work on:
- Be Empathic
- Be Confident
- Always Maintain Your Reputation And Your Image
- Be Courteous And Polite With Everybody
This is a large list but this is why your character is probably the most important part of you and will make you a better man and a great celebrity role model too. A man’s character is his faith in life. Take yours to the next level and watch your success take you all the places you want to go.
No one likes a fake. You can easily rebuild your character and not only look and act more like George, but actually have some of the same traits he has worked hard to build.
Some traits will be easy and others will take practice and hard work but you can succeed.
