Marks of a Secure Man

New Man, November/December, 1994, p. 12

Totally Secure

Let's admit it: all of us have twinges of insecurity about ourselves. But it is possible to grow toward being a totally secure man, says Larry Titus, president of the Men Reaching Men ministry in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania.

According to Larry, a totally secure man: Does not need to tear down others to build up himself. Considers inner convictions more the mark of a man than outer toughness. Finds talented people an inspiration, not a threat. Knows how to take the garbage he was dealt in life and recycle it into energy. Forgives people who may never have the courage to apologize. Lives his private life as if it were public. Considers people more important than projects and plans.
