Self-Image: The Importance of Appearance to Your Career, Social and Personal Life

As early as childhood, we were taught to be presentable in front of other people and perform activities that promote good grooming. In the adolescent stage, teenagers become more conscious of how they look because they start to have crushes and some already engage in romantic relationships. As one enters young adulthood, there is focus on the career, finding the right job and impressing his boss. The young adult wants to belong and be part of the successful people, so he invest in good quality and designer clothing or have her hair and makeup did professionally just to impress other people.However once a middle-aged adult is reached, there is a plateau not just in the performance of work but also with a person’s looks and overall appearance.

Indeed, a person’s appearance is an integral part of his perception about himself and how other people perceive him. 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. A person’s appearance greatly affects how he thinks and feels about himself, affecting his self-confidence, morale, and self-esteem, and if it is a positive perception then it is easier to deal, socialize or interact with other people in 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. Your reputation is also based not just on your actions but also to your appearance. In politics, the appearance also plays a crucial role on how your constituents look up to you, and they even wear the same style of clothes you wear or follow your overall style.

Regardless of race, religion, gender or nationality, you should be comfortable wearing your own skin. 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. In life, we need to invest effort, time and money in order to take good care of our appearance for you to achieve more things in life.
