The Look Of Success

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 are.

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.

How do you express your personal success?
