Great Benefits and Importance of Your Appearance to Your Self-Image, Career, Social and Personal Life

As early as childhood, we were taught to take good care of ourselves by having a good grooming and how to be presentable in front of other people. In adolescence, it marks the start of identity versus confusion, and teenagers have crushes and develop romantic relationships with the opposite sex, making them self-conscious of how they look. As the teenager turn into a young adult, he becomes concerned about his career to find the perfect job and impress his boss. The young adult buys the nicest suit or the perfect dress for a corporate event.In middle adulthood, there is less emphasis on the looks or overall appearance, and more on acquiring wealth and achieving financial freedom.

We cannot discount the fact that a person’s appearance is a major factor in the way people perceive us and how we perceive ourselves. As the saying goes, first impressions last and employers or recruiters can already tell if a person has a high chance to get hired just by the looks and how a person carries himself. Your appearance can dictate your self-confidence, and if you feel good about how yourself, your morale and self-esteem boost, improving your socialization skills with people of different age levels, social class and various types of character and personalities. The general appearance of a person is a reflection of his thoughts and emotions and a basis if a person is well or sick. The reputation of a person is also based on his appearance and not just his actions. People are so observant, and even in politics, the appearance plays an important role because constituents may be influenced by how you wear your clothes or your overall fashion style.

While others want to enhance their looks through modern technologies, you should be comfortable wearing your own skin regardless of your race, religion, gender or nationality. A lot of people undergo cosmetic or plastic surgeries like nose job, Lasik surgery, eyelid enhancement, eyebrow tattoo, breast enhancement and others. The society sets a standard of an acceptable look, but what is more important is if you feel good about yourself, if you are confident about your appearance and how you carry yourself. When it comes to the reality of life, one way to stay on top, to land the best position, to achieve your dreams and to have a good reputation is to have a good and decent appearance. It is important to invest time, effort and money to take good care of our appearance so we can achieve more things in life.
