“We all get so busy caught up in what we do every day, that we don’t give the time to really reflect on why we do it. Until that day, it is not the “what” that motivates us to jump out of bed in the mornings, it is the “why.” It is not the “what” that drives us to give great service and become expert in our field, it is the “why.”
I grew up believing if you are good, you will shine, the world will realize your worth, they will wake up to your brilliance. You will be discovered, outside appearance in frivolous – intelligence and hard work matters. I had never understood that the visual aesthetic we present to others through our appearance and apparel was equally important.
I remember the night, after I was denied the opportunity for my excellence and hardwork, and the reason that came across the table from my management was no question about my competency but they doubted if I could represent them internationally for they believed I didn’t know how to carry and project myself. That night seemed to last for an eternity. I’d lie awake all night and stare out the window all day, in the desperate hope that it was not final, everything was normal, and life was fine, the way it always was.
That is the time when I realised, yes, the inside matters. But to get a chance your appearance matters, your branding matters. Once you get that chance, you can be a success because of your hard work, competence and intelligence. Upon diving deep into this, I slowly understood that image is everything, at least at first. Right or wrong, we live in an opinionated l world and that first impression goes a long way in shaping how people feel about you until you impress them to think otherwise. You can feel successful people when they walk into a room. Attention goes their way in an instant.
Creating an impactful 1st impression is just not about dressing up or looking good. It is a combination. It is combination of creating an image, your skillset and a building a brand around you. This is the combination that defines you and leaves a positive impression. It all lies in how well you project yourself. If you project a loser image, people will treat you like a loser right from the start. You want people to think you are a winner from Day One. Winners get hired. Winners get funding. Winners get promotions. Winners attract top talent. Winners invite opportunity.
The world today believes in this, and it is but intelligent that we also project ourselves – not aping but by being authentic and appropriate and consistent. Projecting our values in everything we do and say is the only way to build trust and this trust will build your brand.
So, I am basically helping people rediscover who they are, how they want to be remembered and then provide tools and techniques to project themselves that way to the world. They reach their goals – personal, professional, social and spiritual goals – faster and with less effort.
