Dress For Success!

I think we can all agree that image is King these days.

Take one look on social media, and you will see, it’s all about your image. 

Although many will disagree with me, to which I will say, your personality is NOT the first thing people see.

Some may it’s superficial. I disagree.

And that being a good person, and/or, being respectable is more important (not to say it isn’t). 

The issue becomes somewhat apparent quickly.

You have like 3 seconds to make a great impression on someone, and that’s before you say a word.

That’s just how it works.โ˜โ˜โ˜

Today I am sharing my secrets of how to “dress for success”!

Self-Confidence:   Chances are, you are most likely not going to achieve big things in life not looking your best. 

When you put your best “self” out into the world, the world responds back in a positive fashion.

Like attracts like.๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ

Career:  When was the last time you went on an interview and didn’t look your best? 

Or attend a big meeting?  Meet a new client? Go on a date?

How many men have a red tie?  The power color. 

Or ladies, an ensemble that says I’m ready to take-on-the-world?  A LBD perhaps?

Killer heels.

Who doesn’t love the UPS man when he makes deliveries to the office? 

Hello? 

The world is as competitive as ever, maybe more so.

So, if you want to be seen and acknowledge for who you are, you image needs to meet the expectation! 

You need to be in the drivers seat this year steering your career along๐Ÿ•Š๐Ÿ•Š๐Ÿ•Š

I believe 2017 is going to be a game-changer for many of us.

Are you prepared?

Make this YOUR year.

Don’t let any opportunities slip by you!

Feeling Good:  Like the saying goes, “Look good, Feel good”. 

And vice-versa.  You are never going to feel good about yourself if you aren’t trying to look your best everyday. 

 

“Dressing well is a form of good manners.” / Tom Ford

Dating:  I could actually write a book on this one. โ˜โ˜โ˜

For those of us (yes, myself included) out in the dating world, you need to not only look your best, but, you need to smile and show off your best!

I am still shocked when I look at the profile pictures that men put up?

Pictures with no smiles ๐Ÿ™ Most definitely my kind of man!

Not dressed properly, or not dressed at all ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

Laying down in bed, which says to me you’re too lazy to stand up and take a picture.

Group shots.  Shows lack of confidence.

Wearing sunglasses.  He’s hiding something or doesn’t want to be seen.โœ”โœ”โœ” 

So who’s this working for? 

You are not going to attract an amazing woman with pictures like that! 

And to be fair, it goes both ways as well. 

I’ve heard men complain that women need to take better profile pics.

So make this the year you level-up and put up some great shots.

This could be your year of meeting the one!โคโคโค

Self-Sabatoge:  I believe some people go out of there way to not look their best.

It gives them an excuse to fail.

Which is not to say that dressing your best will make everything in your life perfect.

We do live in reality. 

Only if you start your day looking and feeling your best, there’s a good chance, a very good chance, that good things will come your way more easily. 

And if you don’t believe me, try me!

Who’s Watching You:  Maybe it’s your kids.  Maybe it’s your boss?  Your followers? 

You never know who’s watching you and who you are inspiring. 

I receive many e-mails from people (who I don’t know), telling me I inspire them with my blogs and posts.

I’ve inspired people to do things they never thought they could do.

Things that were on their bucket list and I, inspired them to do those things. โ˜โ˜โ˜

Yeah, me!!!

That makes me feel totally awesome๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

I can’t tell you how many compliments I get on my hair! Yes, my hair.

Recently, one lady came up behind me and said, “Damn, I wish I had your balls.” 

I get that a lot.

Women wishing they could cut their hair like mine, I tell they could if they really wanted!

I also get complimented on my smile.

The way I dress.

My infectious-positive energy.

You have no idea who’s watching you! 

So don’t be afraid to be amazing!

Your Haters: Think you don’t have haters, think again.  

Oh, you have them. 

If you are out there trying to achieve a dream, working on your career or business, making waves in the universe. 

They are there in the wings. 

Maybe you know them, maybe you don’t?  

But rest assured, they are there. 

And you know what? 

Nothing makes them hate you more than when they see you looking good, feeling good, doing good, inspiring others, making achievements in the world, and most of all, being happy! 

Take that haters!

You Owe It To Yourself:  Enough said!

The World Needs You:  And I don’t mean in the sense that the world needs everyone dressing up (although it couldn’t hurt). 

I mean the world needs more people inspiring other people. 

The world needs a big, huge shot of INSPIRATION right now! 

There is way to much negativity going on these days (and I’m not getting into that, you know the reasons). 

So let’s inspire as many people as we can, through whichever means works for us as individuals. 

Whether it’s on a personal level, a business level, through social media, whatever works in your world? 

How awesome would it be if you could make this world a little lighter and a little brighter (even sharing a smile counts). 

And if it means wearing your Sunday Best when you walk out the door tomorrow, so be it! 

Shine on!

As the saying goes, “DRESS, how you want to be addressed!”

Till next time,

Patricia <3 always
