I don't talk about this much but the fact is I am a certified stylecoach and also a certified image consultant under Sheila Wong, Malaysia. So here goes.
I used to think that I will lead with my mindset stuff because really this is what I truly truly believe in. I believe that you create your reality and it's from the inside out. I don't just believe it. It's the story of my life.
Recently, I had my friend tell me that I should not do facebook live with a sleeveless t-shirt. You know what? I told her that I love being in my sleeveless t-shirt and I have people telling me they watched my video over and over again. So I am comfortable with my sleeveless t-shirt because I love sleeveless t-shirt and it's hot in Malaysia. I work from home and I can't possibly be dressing up in a suit at home!!!
However, that being said, if I were to meet with my corporate clients in an office, I will dress the part.
What a lot of people do with dressing and image is that they think they have to look a certain way and that people therefore need to look a certain way. A lot of it is a story you tell yourself or you bought into the story of what people tell you.
So looking a certain way isn't the answer. You first need to be YOU. I repeat. You need to be YOU. There is nothing more attractive for you to be you and to own you. Now, if you think you need to dress a certain way and that you need to listen to every critical voice out there, then you will be directionless because if you ask 10 people, I guarantee you, you will find different answers.
Did you hear what I just say? Or read LOL.
If you ask 10 people, you will get 10 different answers!!!!
So what do you do. You get to be YOU. Embrace YOU. BE YOU!!! In the way you dress. From the inside out and outside in....
There. That's image and branding for you. Basic 101.
And for those of you confuse as to why I am even writing about this topic is because I am getting a lot of request to do image and branding. Thus, I will start to do this. Does this jive with me and my message. Absolutely!!
Change occurs at 2 levels. In fact more but that's a subject of a different discussion. It can happen when you affect change to the way you look thus making you feel good on the inside. However, if you change on the inside, you will change the way you look on the outside. The outside in is not sustainable, but the inside out is super sustainable.
People of the corporate world is fixated with the outside in. I want to insist on a different way - the inside out. All success comes from the inside out and I insist that there is no better way.
Oops, back to image and branding. Is it important? Absolutely coz like it or not, people will look at you and judge you by how you look and present yourself. So you are your brand. You SHOUT YOUR BRAND!! Whether you realise it or not, you are SHOTING YOU!!
So it's best to realise it and make sure you take advantage of SHOUTING YOU. And that you don't shout the wrong message. We are sending messages everyday to people around us.
Are you sending the right message?
