In times of hardship, struggle, uncertainty or fear for any reason, we can fall into the trap of looking like a victim instead of a warrior. Whether you have been laid off recently, divorced, fallen into financial hardship, experienced loss of some sort or whatever the circumstance may be; you can still choose to look your best! I have always believed in this principle, but most recently had to execute it while going through a rough time in my own life and I am here to tell you that it works! There are days when we as women don’t want to fight the good fight or strive for excellence in our own lives due to struggles or battles we face personally, emotionally, spiritually or professionally. After working with hundreds of men and women, I am certain that by taking the time to look your best each day will determine a more positive outcome for the day before it has even begun.
Taking the time and effort to dress well and put on your make-up will also give you a sense of renewed confidence and the “I can do anything” attitude regardless of the battles or mountains you may be facing. People who know you are experiencing a rough time will be inspired by you as they see your strength and beauty shine throughâ€¦instead of an attitude, demeanor and look’ that says you have given up. Choosing to look your best is YOUR choice it will inspire you to new heights and help you climb high onto the mountain peak again. At one time or another, we will all undoubtedly experience the valleys that life often brings us but we must remember that God created us to be excellent in all things even when we feel we can’t be!
