Take a moment to look at yourself in the mirror right now: how do you present and dress up yourself via your outfits, clothing styles, hair do, accessories or make-ups? And how do you convey your inner self through your manners, speaking tones, body language and as well as your actions? Do you always make sure you are looking and presenting at your best?
For Japanese ladies, putting make-up is a part of common courtesies; for Western countries, wearing covered shoes represents a form of politeness and sophistication. Despite different countries and different cultures, different people may have different definitions of “at one’s best looking”. It’s very subjective; however there is no harm to try presenting self at ‘the best’, i.e. with neat and clean clothes, spread a pleasant body scent, brushed hair style and fresh breath, as well as having well manners…etc.
If you are daring, make-over or revamp your current outlook. For example, try a new hair style, new clothing or shoes selections, put some make-up, wear different ties or hats (different accessories) and as well as the ways you communicate with your body language.
It’s not a matter of pleasing others with efforts, but it’s a respect you are giving to yourself, which at the same time, inviting others to respect you and appreciate the well-outlook you present them. It’s also about you honoring yourself, appreciating the way you look, the way you are, your outer and inner beauties which you are proud to share with people around you.
Give others a chance to see you are at your best.
