You can! Nothing is impossible!
Chapter 22: Clothes
Clothes both cover and expose people. — Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
The best-dressed person is the one who wears carefully selected clothes
creating a harmonious whole
so as not to attract the attention of others unduly just
because of his belongings.— Napoleon Hill
The way you dress can also have a certain influence on how others perceive you.
One of the golden rules is to dress appropriately for each situation.
If you are not sure what you should wear in a particular situation,
you should consult the people around you.
If you want to integrate into the culture of an organization,
you should observe the way the head of
that organization is dressed,
and then follow it.
However, if your boss dresses too modestly,
you should also be careful.
Maybe he allows himself to dress like that in his office,
but that doesn’t mean his employees are allowed to slouch
when dealing with partners.
Your job and the people you come into contact
with in your day-to-day work also affect how you dress.
Again, the golden key is conformity. — W. Clement Stone
Clothing not only speaks of personality
but also speaks of a person’s social position.
It can be said
that taking care of one’s appearance is like decorating a shop.
If the store is beautifully displayed and attractive,
the store will attract the attention of customers.
On the contrary,
it will become sluggish if the stalls are always in an old,
Similarly, your appearance can make a good impression
on the other person,
but it can also make them feel suspicious.
Clothing acts as a promise,
a guarantee of what others can expect of you.
Like it or not,
the way you dress also shows a certain part of your personality
and affects the evaluation of those around you.
One of the golden rules in dress is
to be appropriate for each situation.
There is nothing less comfortable than
when you are lost by the way you dress,
or are too picky,
fancy or sloppy compared to everyone around.
Adjust your dress
so that you don’t feel awkward
about the dress culture of a certain group or organization.
However, consider clothing as a means,
not an end.
Use it to create your own style,
not to show your class and sophistication.
The best dressed person is the one
who wears carefully selected clothes
and jewelry and creates a harmonious
whole so as not to be unusual or overly formal.
“The shirt doesn’t make the monk” – the clothes
you’re wearing can’t make you someone else.
However, take the time to pay attention
to your appearance
because it is the first impression of you to the people around you.
A confident and professional image is sure
to help you achieve a lot of success in work
as well as in life.
“I’ve found that luck is quite predictable.
If you want more luck,
take more chances,
be more active,
show up more often.”— Brian Tracy
