Whether it’s a job interview or going out on the town, every man wants to look their best. Studies show that when you look your best, you feel your best.
The bitter reality is that people judge you within the first 3 seconds of meeting you. They’re evaluating how you present yourself, what you’re wearing, and how you look. So before you even speak, you have been sized up by your interviewer, peers or audience.
The old adage “dress the part” has a lot of truth to it. So with this in mind, it’s important to be mindful of your appearance.
Looking your best doesn’t happen without preparation or attention to detail. Because clothing covers about 90% of your body, you can’t afford to let any detail go unnoticed. Take the extra time to iron your shirt, coordinate your suit and tie, and shine your shoes.
Sharply dressed men enjoy the perks of the business world. They are often seen as being smarter, more confident, more capable, and more attractive. When management looks to promote, they aren’t going to go to someone who won’t represent the company well.
Stop and think about it. Would you take business advice from someone on TV dressed in jeans and a t-shirt? Not really right?
So if your desire is to command attention, dress and handle yourself in a manner that will dictate it.
There are hundreds of studies that show visual cues are 3 to 5 times more powerful than audio. How you look and present yourself is as important, if not more important that what you say.
The benefits aren’t limited to your professional life.
When you’re dressed your best, you might also get more attention from potential partners, better service at restaurants, and the best seats in the house. People are naturally drawn to men who look their best and project a sense of confidence.
Unfortunately, many men don’t feel like they have the skills to up their game. Even if they did, it takes a lot of time and effort. Who has that kind of time and energy anyway?
Working with an image consultant can help you find that image you’re looking for. A professional image consultant isn’t like one of those commission driven sales people in your favorite store. Rather than searching for a quick buck a professional image consultant is invested in your success.
