Our appearance & style is a way for people to know who we are before they know who we are. We live in a world that is both complex and competitive. In this age of social media, selfies and online influencers it is a fact that we all observe, notice and judge each other’s appearance.
Whether we like it or not appearance does count. Successful careers and million dollar businesses have been launched just from being popular for your looks and style on social media platforms. If this is the reality in which we live then why not leverage the power of your personal appearance to make it work for you.How you look impacts the way you feel, respond and behave. It helps you beat negativity and keep your confidence intact. Having a positive personal appearance is one of the most effective ways to improve productivity and behavior. When you look great, are well put together, appropriate for the occasion or job at hand you are able to focus more on your job because you feel good about yourself and your appearance.
Here are 4 benefits of having a great personal appearance :
- When you look good you feel confident
- When you feel confident about yourself it reflects via positive body language, our mindset, our interactions and behavior
- Your confidence enhances positivity in you and in turn, makes you respond and react in a positive manner. This will reflect in the way you engage with the world around you.
- It impacts how people around you see you and respond to you. It’s usually positive!
We all know the well-dressed people in our social circle or at the workplace. We have noticed them and appreciated how they present themselves irrespective of gender or good looks. While looks help, it’s not as important as being able to present yourself in the best possible way you can. Your overall grooming, personal hygiene, how artfully you dress, your body language – how you speak, walk, behave. Your manners, how you engage with people are all more important than good looks.
You can’t afford to create a negative impression because of your inappropriate, offensive or distractive appearance. You also shouldn’t come across as arrogant, defensive, defiant, superior nor can you afford to act awkward, insecure or out of place.
Be aware of yourself and how you impact the people around you.This can help you slowly but surely create an attractive, authentic and appropriate appearance which will help you achieve your goals.
