When a bold, confident, and well-dressed person walks into the room, we all notice. When they appear on that Zoom call, and their presence commands attention and respect, we notice. Style is just a skill. When you combine style with confidence and knowledge, people notice. You can learn facts all day long and live like a fool. It is the application of that knowledge that brings change.
Let’s talk about mojo – your energy, your charisma, and your personal appeal. One of the greatest factors that influences how we feel each day is how we dress. How you dress effects the way you feel and the way you conduct yourself throughout the day. It’s how you show up in the world, right? Dress in a way that makes you feel confident, bold, successful, and approachable. Don’t dress according to how you feel each day, dress for the way you WANT to feel each day. Throughout this past year as we worked from home, it became the norm to not get dressed for work. The expectation for how we looked on a zoom call was set low. You could roll out of bed, sit down in front of your computer, and you were at work. But did you perform your best? Did you make your best impression? Were you feeling confident and successful? If not, try dressing up for when you’re ready for business and see how that affects both your mood –you’re your results!
Something to Think About
There’s no doubt that the ups and downs of the last year and a half have taken their toll on a lot of people. Anxiety and gloom creeped in a lot, and for good reason. However, as we head into the second half of THIS year, it’s time to double down on good self-care and great practices for fueling well-being. One way to start your days off on the right foot is to dress “for the job you want”. A top producer, a real estate resource and someone who is proud to serve their communities. Make a great impression whether in person, on Zoom – or even to that person in the mirror. It makes a difference.
