“Within five seconds of meeting someone, you make a lasting impression based on the following order: First, how you look, second how you sound and third what you say.”
That is why it is very important that we understand our own fashion statement or the overall flow of our appearance – from head to toe!
The way we choose our outfit and the way we carry yourself are critical towards success because they both convey an unspoken yet powerful message to other people. The message consists of how well we want to be treated or how much we want to attract (love, happiness, luck and success). Remember that when we buy an outfit, we don’t just buy an outfit. We also buy our identity.
Our appearance may reveal our current mindset, where you have been and where you are heading in life. As much as some people would disagree, it is a fact that a lot of people who don’t know us very well may judge us according to our appearance. That is one of the reasons why we always hear, “first impressions count.”
In addition to the outfit, the colors play also a vital role in your overall look because not only it can affect the mood of the person wearing the clothes but it also sets the mood of the receiving end. That is why choosing the right outfit and dressing up right to the occasion may contribute to the overall happiness and success of the person.
Here are 5 ways to improve appearance how you can use it towards success.
First, identify who you are. If you haven’t still decided who you are or want you want to be, think of the closest person, celebrity or famous identity that you would like to be associated with. Inventory your personality, likes, dislikes and skills For example, are you adventurous, artistic, up-beat or sophisticated, loves color blue, brown or red? Identifying your qualities will help you pick the type of outfit and knowing who you are create a harmonious appearance, comfortable body and positive mindset. You should avoid dressing up based on moods only. Instead based on your level of comfort, identity and personal intentions. This is how a pleasing personality is achieved. Remember that a pleasing personality is usually followed by a pleasant experience.
Second, identify what you want.
Do you want to make a great first impression on a job interview, stand out at a social event, achieve personal serenity, attract love, meet new people, etc. Once you identify what you want to achieve, it is easier to create your outfit and overall look. If you know what you want it is much easier to connect with other people, identify what type of people you want to meet, who to meet and where to find them.
Third, smile. A smile can make a person attractive. It is contagious and just simply, healthy. When you smile it promotes positive energy that relieves stress. Not only to you but also to the people around you.
Fourth, Like I mentioned above, take care of yourself from head to toe. This doesn’t mean, having expensive haircuts or wearing the most expensive shoes. It simply means, try to look pleasant on each area.
Hair – It has to be combed and washed. As simple as that!
Face – Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but skin never lies. The ultimate goal is to have clear skin and a fresh look. A little make up won’t hurt either. But the best makeup is when you can make your face appear flawless and natural. Not “cakey”, painted on or trying too hard.
Body – Exercise regularly, eat healthy food and get enough rest. Nothing beats a well-rested body, you don’t want a functioning body but tired and stressed.
Fifth, The best accessory a girl could ever wear is confidence. Confidence will take you far. It will make the journey to your success easier and shorter. Before people can believe in you, you have to believe in yourself first. Confidence enhances your appeal and peaks other people’s interest. Confidence relieves doubt, kills fears and produces results. The idea is to be able to show the best in you and believe that “You can do it!”. But don’t show too much or you will appear arrogant. For example, “I can do it” is called confidence but “I can do it with my eyes closed” is over-confidence.
