Look, I have no problem with you buying unique items that are hard to pull off but once you’ve pulled it off, it looks amazing. If you really feel like buying them then go for it.
With that being said, I want you to think about the basic essential clothing once again.
What is Basic Essential Clothing?
Basic Essential Clothing Include items like your Basic T-Shirt, Maybe a couple of pairs of dark, medium, and light wash, grey and blue jeans.
A Leather jacket, Denim Jacket, and a few other also clothing items come under the heading of Basic essential clothing.
So basically the clothing items that can be mixed and matched with multiple clothing items, the essential ones that are the basis of any man’s wardrobe is what we call, “Basic Essential Clothing”.
Intelligent People and Basic Essential Clothing
The reason why I included Basic essential clothing in this list of smart investments that intelligent people make is because of the fact that basic clothing is like the building stone of any wardrobe.
And intelligent people, as we all know, invest their money into the things that bring good returns.
We all by now understand & believe that basic clothing items bring back very good returns because they can result in many outfits if you pair them intelligently with each other.
2: Audio Books/Regular Book Reading
Alright, so let’s talk about knowledge and the power of books now. Shall we?
Books are full of information. Given that, you have an idea of how to choose the books to read/listen to, you can add a lot to your knowledge and you can possibly do wonders, with the help of knowledge that you learned from those books only.
Their are plenty of books out there related to the topics like:
- Intelligent investment ideas
- How to market like a Boss
- Real Estate
- The Power of Influencing People
- Better Communication
- Importance of a Good Lifestyle
And we haven’t even begin yet.
You just name the topic, and you will find tons of great books written around that topic.
Once you’ve found the book that you wanna get the knowledge from, then comes the next step.
Should you read it or consume it in the form of an Audio Book?
Tbh, it’s entirely up to you. I understand that you are a busy man. You need to do a lot of things throughout your whole day. You can’t take 1-2 hours off of your busy routine to read a book. Don’t worry about that!
What about listening to this very informative audiobook while running on the treadmill? That sounds like a plan. Isn’t it? Or you can incorporate your book listening session into another activity of yours as well.
Reading or Listening, it up to you, but at the end of the day, the main thing that you need to keep in your mind is the fact that intelligent people invest their money into knowledge!
They never leave a single opportunity on the table, an opportunity to acquire more knowledge. And due to the fact that audiobooks or regular book reading are a source of ultimate knowledge, we can safely say that spending money to get yourself an informative book is definitely a very smart investment!
3: Courses that teach Actual Skills
Nah, Coach! Don’t put your Debit Card down yet because we have some more items to add to the cart.
First one being the course that your favorite influencer has just formulated related to Video Editing.
I Have seen his work. He is beyond the word “amazing”. I mean, the way he does it all, the magic that he sprinkles over his videos is the real definition of “Art”.
And finally, he has compiled all his secret editing sauce, everything that you need to know to edit like him, in the form of a course that costs $20.99.
Should you purchase that?
Look, I know that you can learn editing for free, thanks to YouTube. But what if I told you that learning the basic or even the advanced level of editing, and then practicing it from the raw and then adapting to a specific person’s style is going to take you a lot of time!
If you have tons of time to do all this process then cool. You should not invest your money into that course.
But if you want to become a pro and if you really want to learn how to edit like that person in a short amount of time then you should consider purchasing that course worth $20.99.
Real vs Fake Courses
Internet is full of courses. You are going to see people advertising crap, so beautifully that people end up buying that crap and then they become the haters of online courses, in general.
But the reality is totally opposite.
You need to purchase legit courses that teach you legit skills, and why do you need that?
- In order to establish your business around those skills
- To get to your destination faster
So in order to accomplish these objectives, you got to purchase the courses (legit ones). Just make sure that you are not falling into the trap of “Easy Money” or something like that.
4: Basic Grooming Equipment
The next one on the list of Smart investments intelligent people makes/smartest things intelligent people invest their money into are basic grooming equipment.
We are talking about:
- Nail File
- BlowDrying Brush
- Blow Dryer
- Clippers for the Trimmer
- A Pair of Scissors
These are the things intelligent men spend their money into. But Why do they do that?
Intelligent men are stylish too (most of them). They understand that looking good is a part of a healthy and Lavish Lifestyle.
However, going to the barber every week isn’t the most budget-friendly idea. There is something that needs to be done in order to keep looking sharp without visiting the barber every week. But what is that?
These grooming tools, yes! all you need to do is to buy these grooming tools and leave the rest up to them.
A Blow Dryer is going to ensure that your hair looks good. Trimmer will solve your beard lining, back of the head hair, and body hair-related problems.
And just like that other tools are going to come in handy as well.
5: Home Cooking Essentials
Intelligent men understand the importance of eating healthy food.
We’ve discussed a similar topic Before as well.
Look, one of the reasons why most people end up eating unhealthy is that they don’t know to cook their food. They don’t know how to cook something that is healthy as well as delicious. And just because of that they surrender in front of the unhealthy food that is prepared in their home for everybody.
I want you to utilize your free time to search for a bunch of healthy food recipes on the web. Write the ingredients and making procedure down. And start preparing your healthy meal.
You are definitely going to make mistakes but at the end of the day you’ve accomplished a lot.
- You’ve successfully managed to find something to do in your free time.
- You are now able to cook something healthy that you are eventually going to make properly with the passage of time.
- This food is healthy so you can cook & eat it when you are hungry.
Foods and Facial Beauty
If you think that by only chewing gum for about 5 hours per day you are gonna get the most perfect jawline then I afraid to say that you wrong. You are so wrong my friend because what’s gonna really affect your facial structure is the change in your Diet.
I can’t tell you the importance of Diet and How just by changing it you can gradually with the passage of time, change the way you Look. It’s not about your face only but let’s say if you want to build muscles, still you will be needing an appropriate diet plan because otherwise, you won’t see any results at all.
You need to avoid foods that have sugar in them, be it bakery products, packaged foods, Soy, Corn, Gluten, etc. On the other hand, what I recommend to all of you is that You all must be Drinking at least 12 glasses of water per day
And last but not the least, Say no to Salty Food! Salt gets accumulated on your face and it is no doubt the main cause of water retention which causes swelling on your face. You don’t want that at all, Right? You want to Look More Handsome and You definitely want to get a Better Looking / Attractive Face. Right?
Consume less salt! Yeah, that’s it. Avoid deep-fried food items that have lots of Oils in them because they increase the number of fatty tissues which results in more fat on your face. #SayNoToJunkFood.
Home Cooked/Prepared Healthy Food over the Packaged one
You need to start making your own food at home. It will help you feel & understand the importance of healthy raw items. That way you will have an idea of the freshness and the benefits of the items that are going in your body.
Buying prepared healthy food from the store is going to cost you a lot of money! Intelligent men never spend money on such things. They eat healthy food, but they make sure that they are doing it on their own and not purchasing it from the store as that way they would have to pay a hefty price against that meal.
Intelligent People Purchase Cooking Essentials
Bros! Guess what? Intelligent people have all the equipment and the ingredients that they need in order to cook their own food.
By having both of these items, intelligent people manage to save their money and they also end up looking better than most of the men around them. So it’s a win-win situation basically.
6: To Educate themselves about the Money
Next in the list of smart investments intelligent men make/smartest things intelligent men invest their money into is, “to educate themselves about the money”.
Guys! Understanding money and how it works is very important. It is so important that there needs to a compulsory course for everybody in the school, all teaching about the money and how one should manage it properly.
Gentlemen! I recommend you guys to follow the footsteps of intelligent people and give yourself some money education.
- What is Money
- How does it work
- What are the basic terminologies?
- What kind of investment is the most beneficial
- When should you start saving up?
- When to invest the money that you saved up?
- Should you invest when there is inflation or not?
- How much of your total income should you spend on the fun stuff?
- What Does a Realistic Budget Look Like?
I need you to start looking for the answers to these questions. I am sure intelligent men have already done that, and now they have all the knowledge related to money. Do you want to know why intelligent people never fail when it comes to money?
Nah! It isn’t all about luck only. They have done their research, and after a long period of doing hard work, they’ve finally managed to master the art of managing money. That’s how they are able to live a good life while saving and investing money as well!

This is what Intelligent men do to Purchase Clothes at a Discounted Price!
Black Friday, Diwali, Eid, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas. These and tons of other festivals come with a great number of sales and discount offers
Some brands go up to 50% and even 80% monthly or once in two months. my question to you is that why are you not availing of these offers? I mean why not purchasing a sweatshirt worth $50 that is Now selling for $10?
Insane gentlemen! thats totally insane. For all of those who love to buy branded clothes, this is a steal! Because you can easily build your entire wardrobe over a period of time with all the branded items just by embracing the power of the SALE season.
Now one thing that bothers me a lot here is that there are many people who complain about missing out on the Sale. Here’s a simple solution for all of those Brothers.
Some More Tips to Note Down
Whenever you visit the brand next time, ask them to add you up on their “SMS alert Service“. Well, I am totally aware of the fact that you are gonna get a lot of messages from because of this move but you need to stay positive and think about the benefits that you are getting.
Go to your Favourite Brand’s Instagram and Hit that “Follow” button over there. This is gonna make sure that you get notified when they release any new item or when they Go On SALE!. Secondly, what you can do is that you can always visit your Favourite Brand’s website.
Over there, Enter your Email Address, one you use on a daily basis, and Hit that “Subscribe” button. That way you will be notified about new arrivals and SALES. That way you will get your required information without physically visiting the Store.

Your ability to sit down and work for hours, increases and your new normal becomes way more than what it was when you used to work with your laptop sitting on your lap.
Intelligent men understand the importance of ambiance. They Understand that one can’t work efficiently if He is working while laying down on his bed or maybe his couch. Both of these areas are for him to rest on.

Some tips to Improve your Sleep Quality & Quantity
The first and foremost thing is to work on your posture (will talk about that at the end of this article). Once that is taken care of, the following are a few recommendations/things that you need to keep in mind if you really want to sleep like a baby and wake up like a superhero.

- Put away your Cell phone and Laptop in the evening
- Turn off All the Lights
- Sleep in a Quiet Place

Explanation Number 2:
- Don’t Consume Caffeine Late in the day because the caffeine helps you wake up which means that it won’t let you sleep properly at Night. Hence, avoid caffeine in the evening or at night time.
- Increase Bright Light Exposure during the Day and Reduce the Blue Light exposure in the evening / Night. Put your phone aside and don’t use it when the Lights of your room are switched off. Using a phone in the dark is gonna hurt your eyesight plus it is eating your Sleep time as well.
- You must put all of your Digital devices away at least 30 minutes before going to bed… I recommend that you put your Phone on a Table that is far away from your bed because I know that sometimes you want to grab your Cellphone again and again… But if you place it far away then you will have to get up and reach the table to grab your cellphone… Getting up is a resistance and a Barrier that is surely gonna Help.
- Maintain Room Temperature at 60 – 67 Degree Fahrenheit because that’s considered to be the ideal temperature. Lowering your body’s temperate before going to bed is proven to give you a Baby sleep.
- Make a Routine. Sleep at 10, Wake-up at 5 (etc)
- Check your Mattress. Make sure that your Pillows, Bed, and Mattress are Comfortable
Investments to Make:
- Temperature Regulator
- Some Good Quality Blinds
- Good Quality Pillows and Pillow Cases
- A Fine & Comfortable Mattress
- Appropriate Size Bedding
