You've heard the term "You'll never get a second chance to make a great first impression." There really couldn't be a truer statement, as psychology studies suggest:
So, in reality, what you wear and how you present yourself is not a shallow consideration.
Whether we're conscious of it or not, we all have a personal brand or 'reputation'. We cannot stop people's opinion or thoughts of us but we can help their positive perception. By improving the way we dress, talk and behave and reflecting the best version of ourselves, we can shift perceptions. This changes the way we feel about ourselves and really empowers us with a confident demeanour for a more successful life.
There is a level of social acceptance to how you dress. The key is to dress appropriately for the occasion, meeting, event, interview or date! There are 5 dress codes that need to be understood and applied properly to the right setting, which combined with a good understanding of your style personaility and body shape, can make you look well put together and polished.
The 5 Dress Codes:
Poor grooming and poor personal hygiene will ruin a polished look, as people do notice and it will severely knock your confidence. Things such as untidy and dirty nails, stained, chipped or missing teeth, bad breath, body odour and untidy hair should be addressed.
Research shows that approximately 55% of what we communicate is via our Body Language. What we say verbally only accounts for approximately 7% of what's understood. This demonstrates the importance of body language.
Negative body language to avoid:
Body Posture and your overall physiology affects how you feel and contributes largely to your confidence levels. Sit up or stand up straight, keep your head high, keep shoulders back and wear a big and bright inviting smile!
We've all heard the saying that we have two ears and one mouth. We really must be using them in that proportion.
Top tips for a confident voice:
Practice improving your voice quality by recording yourself speaking for 5 mins and listen for tone, pitch, diction and speed and then practice reading out loud, taking into account these areas for improvement.
Many of us are facing different life challenges, including finding a new relationship or coming out of an old one, embarking on a new career or business, going for job interviews, taking control of our physical and mental health and taking a new direction in life. When we invest in dressing, behaving and communicating better, we really change how we feel and how we cope with what life throws our way. When we start the day on the right track, in a positive, powerful, resourceful state of mind, we can't help but feel an abundance of confidence, positivity and happiness and can keep stress and negativity away. By eradicating the negative mindset about our poor self-image and limited beliefs, we can stop holding ourselves back and start looking great, feeling amazing and be the real hero in our personal story.
