At the end of The Wizard of Oz Dorothy was told she always had the power to go home. All she had to do was click her heels three times and she would be safely at home with her family.
I want to suggest to you, YOU’VE ALWAYS HAD THE POWER to do what you’ve wanted to do…
I believe, based on tons of research and experience, there are three things you’ve always possessed that fuel your attempts to achieve your personal and professional goals.
Studies show communication is 55% non-verbal. What does that mean? To me, it says before you speak, you are analyzed and judged…assumptions are being made and opinions are being formed ABOUT YOU! Now, you tell me….does physical appearance, your personal style, and your confidence matter?
HERE’S WHAT I THINK:
YOUR LOOKS: are appreciated. I mean…yes, if you are an attractive person, you will get a few second glances. Unfortunately, people still base competence on ones physical appearance so it may get you in the door, but talent and intelligence is what keeps you there. What I want you to focus on here is maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Establishing a skin care routine, exercise routine, and good eating habits are ways to ensure you continue to LOOK good. It also demonstrates your attention to detail, a since of pride, and loyalty. If you are all these things TO YOURSELF, it is conceivable you would be to an employer, business associate, or customer…right?
YOUR STYLE: influences. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… your personal style SPEAKS A MESSAGE! You are perceived as professional, sophisticated, creative, etc.. all by the way you dress. Much like your physical appearance, you are projecting qualities about yourself and your ability to get the job done. You are more powerful when you know what that message is..You have to know what you want to say about yourself through your choice of clothing. What is it you want people looking at you to think, feel, or appreciate about you? The best way to figure this out is to begin to pay more attention to how people make you think/feel about them….Start to recognize what it is EXACTLY about their look that resonates with you and start to interpret that for your own style.
YOUR CONFIDENCE: motivates. When you look good, you feel good and when you feel good about how you look, your confidence grows exponentially! Do I need to go on? We all know what can be achieved when we have the confidence to go after what we want, right? That’s power!!! Use that confidence to propel you toward your success..
How do you feel? Do you feel more powerful? I hope so, because it’s been in you the whole time. Now go and use your power for good…
I want to hear all about it. Leave me a message about how you exercised your power to achieve your goals. I want to hear all about it!
