Looking successful goes beyond what one
wears. It has more to do with how one feels and how that
feeling is projected. Wearing an expensive suit can certainly
look successful. But, if the wearer also looks stressed
and frazzled, the look of success can be diminished.
Looking successful has more to do with an
attitude. If we feel successful, that feeling will be expressed
in everything that we do. Often, the most successful people
are not the ones in the most expensive clothes; they are
the ones that look comfortable with who they are. Their
energy is powerful and positive. They have an "air"
about them that says they are successful and confident.
Successful people don't have to be cocky
or condescending. They show a respect for others. They are
easy to be around and fun to be with.
Looking successful is a personal projection
of how we feel inside. When we feel successful, it shows.
Projecting an image of success comes from
a level of confidence of who you are. Success can sometimes
be difficult for people. Embracing success is a way to honor
ourselves and except the magnificent person that we are.
Success goes beyond money and material possessions. Success
has to do with accepting ourselves and celebrating who we
We must learn to define success for ourselves
and embrace that success. Once we do that, we will project
our inner success out into the rest of the world. The look
of success comes from the knowledge of who we are and our
personal contribution to the world.
