The subject of clothing, hairstyles and appearance in general has always been a weird topic for me. Growing up I was always wary of it, not wanting to look conceited and vain. David Schwartz, author of “The magic of big thinking”, has a different take on it.
Remember: look important because it helps you to think important.
Use clothing as a tool to lift your spirits, build confidence.
Your physical exterior affects your mental interior. How you look on the outside affects how you think and feel on the inside.
And even more interestingly:
Your appearance talks to you; but it also talks to others. It helps determine what others think of you… Your appearance is the first basis for evaluation other people have.
I definitely take more care in my dress as an adult than I ever did as a teenager. This helps keep in mind how important it is for my mental impression of myself.
