Are you going back into the dating scene? Are you a stay-at-home parent going back into the workforce? Deciding to change careers? Looking for that promotion? Well, I understand life transitions as I have gone through many of them myself.
If you said "yes" to any of the above you might also be thinking..." YIKES! I don't have anything to wear! I haven't had to dress for this type of occasion in a long time!, I need to look the part." And, you'd be right! According to Brian Tracy, author of the book The Psychology of Achievement, "Many capable men and women are disqualified from job opportunities because they don’t look the part.” That can apply to both your business and personal life.
We all want to make a positive first impression when meeting someone for the first time. Feeling great about your personal appearance can boost your self-esteem and confidence when meeting for a first date, walking into the bosses office seeking that promotion you deserve, or stepping into the interview of a potential new employer. Its a fact that the way you dress impacts how you feel about yourself and how others will respond to you.
According to a Harvard study, we only have about 3 seconds to make that first impression. The first impression you create is based on: 55% the way you look, 38% the way you physically present yourself (example body language) and only 7% what you say. Okay, I know, I too was taught not to judge a book by its cover, but the reality is we all do it. The clothes you wear can be a great communicator of who you are. Let them work for you.
Your image does matter!
“While clothes do not make the woman, they certainly have a strong effect on
her self-confidence – which, I believe, does make the woman.” Mary Kay Ash
