Recently I attended a networking event called, “LipStick Mania Business Social” and the topic was about image. I was expecting the regular spiels about hair, make up, and clothes. To my surprise the speaker, Marjory Brifil spoke of inner image which I am all about. I believe that image is tied to your self-esteem and it has to come from within. She spoke of four topics I want to share with you.
- Self-Awareness – The word says it all, aware of one’s self, including one’s traits, feelings, and behaviors. It is important to know thyself. Know your strengths and your weakness. If you are not sure of your strengths and weaknesses here is a little exercise you can do. Take a blank piece of paper and draw a line down the center on the right side write the word strength on the left side of the line write the word weakness. Then write at least things on 10 on each side.
- Self-Care – Taking care of yourself is so important, yet we rarely do it on a regular basis. Women we put everyone in front of ourselves. Taking care of one’s self is a deliberate action you take to care for your physical, mental and emotional health. Make an appointment with yourself to do just that, read a book, exercise, or meditate, whatever you need to do to safeguard your well-being body, mind and spirt.
- Passion – The definition of passion is a strong and barely controllable emotion. If you are not sure what your passion is, just think back to when you were a child. What did you like to do when you were little? What did you want to be when you grew up? Reconnect to what you loved and be passionate about it, may it be your business, your family or even your friends.
- Enthusiast – Embrace your enthusiasm, don’t hold back because you fear judgement from others. When you do something enthusiastically, you do it with excitement and eagerness and when you are genuine others will feel your excitement and join in with you.
When you truly connect with these 4 things, your outer image will be vibrant and no one can resist you, people will be drawn to you and that will be beneficial to you and your business.
