Connect Your Image to Your Paycheck

You want to achieve pinnacles of success. Here’s something to think about. Have you defined your image and your brand? Your image is what you project and how it is being perceived by others. While your mind is brilliant, your image needs to match that. Too often people, both men and women think that being great at what they do will get them to the final stages of success.
Your look is judged. Read that again and just in case, here it is, your look is judged. You need to understand this and whenever you walk into a room, your presence will either make others feel enthused or lukewarm. Your image will decide that. Project your skills in your image. This is not about feminism, romanticism, sexism or any other ism. This is about POWER, SUCCESS and RESULTS.
Have a wardrobe that constantly reads this. This is about quality, not quantity. Your wardrobe needs to be filled with the right items to mix and match through all of the needs of your lifestyle. There are some essentials that are investment pieces and then there are the add on pieces.
The key to all of this is understanding what your image is telling others and the brand that you are building. The impact is that your confidence will radiate through and you will ignite passion in others. Think about what the result can be if you do this and what the result will be if you do not.
