Grow a Beard: Dedication and Appointment with Yourself
Growing a beard requires a certain dedication. This trip is actually a test of your character and for some people a way of self-discovery. It is therefore not easy to reach, but the pay-off is ultimately big and gives you a great feeling. The reason that many men have problems to continue growing a beard is because they give up when there is not yet visible progression going on . There will be a period in which you can not get rid of your beard because of itching, irritated skin and bald spots.
This annoying incident is unfortunately enough for many men to stop early and shave smooth again. If you have made the decision and you want the full 100%, then it can help to find inspiration and have the final goal in mind. What often helps is that setting a start date and a minimum number of weeks in which you make the appointment with yourself really do not shave, regardless of the irritations or comments from your immediate environment.
