Our choice of clothing, hairstyle, make up and personal grooming all contribute to our own unique individual style. It's important to be yourself, but it's equally as important to showcase who you are in the best possible light. Why? Because whatever you reflect outwards tends to be reflected back at you. In practical terms, this means that if you don't project an image of polished confidence, competence and self respect, others may treat you as if you lack these qualities. They may therefore be more inclined to try to bully or manipulate you, or not trust you to do things correctly. This could cost you a promotion, a potential friendship or even a relationship.

Although it doesn't seem quite fair, people do judge us on our appearance, and once they've made their mind up about us, it's very hard to change their opinion. So because we have no choice but to interact with people, it's much easier and less stressful dealing with them in the long run if we can give everyone the right impression about ourselves right from the start.

For those of you who might think this sounds artificial or insincere, consider this: someone's perception is also their reality. And the reality of your life is such that if others perceive you differently than you intend them to, they may not treat you how you expect and deserve to be treated. So it's not about being phony, it's about sending a clearer message about who you are to others.

The home page of this site states that every woman has the innate ability to be great. Well, you need to figure out how best to communicate your inner greatness and then celebrate that greatness by ensuring it shines forth loud and clear for all the world to appreciate!
