Maturity does not come with age, but with the acceptance of responsibility. Maturity is doing the right thing, when it needs to be done, regardless of the circumstances, emotions or temptations of the moment. Daring to be mature when immaturity is the “cultural cool” is the ultimate challenge for men today who wish to be successful. Immature males permeate the media. Men hopelessly grasping to the “glory days” of their youth, rather than accepting responsibility for their age, their family, their career, exhibit a maturity crisis. That crisis is an image crisis that is embraced, celebrated and also lampooned by the media. With such images, it seems harder than ever to accept personal responsibility. Successful men find the courage to accept responsibility, unhinge themselves from the images, and move forward.
