Many see “#GiT” on our Twitter feed and are puzzled. I don’t blame them; there’s not much to relate it to and thus, they’re left incapable of grasping the intent behind messages bearing the said hashtag. To clarify this for you, the reader, “GiT” or “Gentlemen in Training” is more than a slogan. It is our target audience, of which we are members. It encapsulates the ideas and thought-provoking content (in 140 characters or less) that are necessary for young men to discover their potential and purpose. By addressing these issues tied in with character development, we hope to see the changes it unfurls in fellow young gentlemen.
As the saying goes: give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach him to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. #GiT is reliant on this very same principle. Tips and how-to guides–for style, character, success, etc.–prove ineffective when applied across the board because they are tailored to specific scenarios. The shared messages intended for the gentlemen in training, however, are applicable and relatable, not prescribed, and will serve to accomodate the ever evolving man for years to come. They give new perspective to exhausted ideas and provide solutions to unresolved issues. The ultimate goal is to promote the undertaking of responsibility, being relentless in the pursuit of knowledge, passions, and aspirations, and striving to be well versed in regards to relationships, style, culture, and education.
#GiT messages are tools for personal growth and as they help us reflect and navigate through our personal lives, our sincere hope is that they help you do the same.
