1. Be gainfully employed.
2. Be in good physical shape.
3. Possess a capable mind.
4. Earn a livable wage.
5. Be over 50 years of age.
6. Be in a rewarding relationship.

Statistics: The strongest predictor of men’s happiness and well-being is their job satisfaction, by a large margin—and the strongest predictor of job satisfaction is whether men feel they are making an impact on their companies’ success. This measure, the study finds, is influenced by whether men feel they are using their own unique talents at work, whether they are surrounded by a diverse set of perspectives, how easily and often they can chat with co-workers, whether they feel their opinions are valued, and whether they’re inspired by the people they work with. Men who have high job satisfaction are highly likely to be content in other aspects of their life. Men at work are more likely to be men at ease with themselves. Everything else—contentment at home, in relationships and friendships—flows down from men being satisfied at work.

Commentary: In other words, self-esteem is determined by whether you are gainfully employed or having to depend on others for support, ie: family handouts, government welfare, church charity. When a man is under-employed or jobless, he tends to drift into a downward spiral of crime—addictions and predatory behavior. Bottom line men need to earn and pay their own way.
