Nice guy dating advice
I’ve found, over the years, that being nice is the road less traveled. Being nice is not a sign of weakness nor does it provide a license for others to walk on you.
It also does not make you an easy mark or a “yes man.” I think people get confused and feel in order to succeed you need to be a tough leader, hard natured or an iron fisted commander. There are many examples of people that have made their way to the top being nice guys.
There is no more effective way to lead than by example and nice guys are great at walking the walk. There is a difference between having a healthy self-esteem and having a big ego.
No one likes a braggart although many people like an expert’s support, guidance and advice. Having a great attitude and a positive mindset attracts other happy, positive people to you and nice guys are all about the law of attraction.
They look to help others around them and they glow in the victories of those that overcome adversity.
Nice guys also like to see others build a healthy self-esteem, so they empower others and allow them to become part of the bigger picture. If you go through life constantly taking, you put little or nothing back into it.
If instead, you give, with no expectation of getting anything in return, the universe has a way of rewarding you in return.

Had you told me two years ago that I was going to create a “Nice Guy” blog, curate nearly four hundred pieces of content, start a podcast, record over one hundred episodes, put pen to paper and publish a book about the lessons I have learned over the thirty years I’ve been in business, I surely wouldn’t have believed you. Instead, please see it as a generic, universal term that can be applied to all people.
Two years ago, I wasn’t quite sure that people would actually believe that nice guys finish first. I guess I could just say nice people finish first, but I’ve been carrying this term “nice guys” for over two years, and I’d prefer not to mess with my SEO, so humor me. What you see is what you get when it comes to nice guys. Because of that, nice guys are able to develop stronger, longer lasting relationships. They appreciate what they have in their lives and do not take others for granted.
