Are You For REAL?

Are you a REAL Man?   The Search Continues


More than two thousand years ago, a Greek philosopher by the name of Diogenes of Sinope set out to find what he called a good man. Diogenes was a cynic, meaning that he doubted the natural goodness of this world and of those who lived in it.  He dedicated his life to finding evidence to the contrary. 

         Diogenes was known to have wandered through the streets of Athens in broad daylight, holding up a lantern to each man he passed, shining the light on him and asking: “Are you a good man?”

         Diogenes’ quest to find a man who was both wise and honest—a man who was fair and just—apparently never produced what the philosopher was looking for. Nearly two thousand years ago, it seems as though a good and decent man was hard to find.

         And so it is today, as the case remains very much the same. Sadly, we live in a society with a desperate shortage of honorable men.  The world needs more real men… men who are respectful and respectable, men who have principles and who live by those principles, men of honor and integrity, men who are willing to invest in this world, and men who are willing to make a positive and lasting difference in the lives of others.

         And so now, I—a modern-day Diogenes of sorts, holding up my proverbial lantern as I wander through this world of ours—have one very important question to ask youAre you a REAL Man? 




Are you for REAL?  Do you have what it takes? 

Will you stand up and be a REAL Man? 

Will you stand tall and make a REAL Difference in the world?

“The question is not can you change the world around you.

The only question is will you decide to do so.”
