JT (Justin Timberlake) is the man. Women love him and men want to be him. From starting out as a pop star/boy band superstar to his evolution into an actor and successful businessman, this guy just keeps impressing us more and more as time goes by.

As you all may have heard, he is making his badass return to the music world where his talent and charisma first came onto the scene.

It has been 6 long years since we have heard any music from Justin and now we have been blessed with the news that not only will the first single include Jay-Z, but that the whole album will be produced by Timbaland and will have a very EDM-like feel. It’s Christmas come early for anyone who has followed the illustrious career of Justin Timberlake.

To say that this man is talented is an understatement. He is the ideal elite male and someone that we could all learn a lot from, both from his personal life and his knack for being good at everything from music to movies to even becoming a tech entrepreneur as the creative director for the relaunch of Myspace. JT is winning, and here’s how he did it:

Always be humble

So many celebrities have came and gone since JT first became famous. He is one of the few who has stayed relevant for an extended period of time. These other celebs were loudmouths, always caught in the tabloids with their feuds, breakup and rehab stories.

Justin, on the other hand, is humble, never over the top or obnoxious, and has never made a fool out of himself like so many have and killed their careers.

He always stayed under the radar and let his music, movies and business tactics speak for themselves. You would think the guy who brought sexy back would have a chip on his shoulder but surprisingly, he does not.

Nothing wrong with being selfish

There is no I in team, we all know that, but there is nothing wrong with being selfish and chasing after what you truly want. JT was apart of N’SYNC, but he always had a feeling he was destined for so much more than just being a member of a team.

Instead of staying with the group, he knew that he was more talented than all of them so he decided to venture off into his solo career which was one of the best decisions he has ever made. When your opportunity to show the world what you are made of comes around, strike it and take what is yours.

Actresses are better than singers

We all remember the hay days when JT was dating Britney Spears. They were the Kim and Kanye of that era, minus the sex tapes or reality TV shows. Justin quickly understood that dating singers is too cliche and they are usually crazy which is way he stopped dating them early on.

He proved the validity theory by sticking to actresses, marrying Jessica Biel while Britney Spears lost her mind, shaved her head, married Kevin Federline and then had to deal with her 16 year old knocked up sister. Touche, JT, touche.

Be good at everything

Talent is one thing but without hard work it gets you no where. We all know that this man is a great performer but we also know that he had to work hard to hone his skills to branch out into multiple aspects of the entertainment world.

The man didn’t just stop at conquering the music industry, he knew that he had the desire to be good at everything and you should do the exact same. He’s an actor, tech entrepreneur and Mila Kunis’ booty call. No challenge was too great for him, which is why JT is the ultimate male role model. Face it, he’s damn near perfect.

Be a perfectionist

Justin released a single titled “I’m Ready,” which not only told us that he would be returning to the music industry, but also that he was a perfectionist and that we have no idea what goes on behind closed doors when he makes music.

He explained that he basically kills himself to make sure his product is flawless by the time it gets released. This is why he is so successful. He doesn’t just give it his best effort to keep doing what he loves, he understands that it shouldn’t be easy to make a great song and is prepared for a grueling process every time he enters the studio.

Bring sexy back

Be the elite man, be the JT of your world. Have swag, be charming, be suave, impress everyone, stay humble and try to mimic JT as much as possible because as of now, there ain’t nothing Justin Timberlake has done wrong in our eyes.

Be elite, be JT.
