People judge books by their covers.

We only get one chance to make a first impression.

Our appearance and presentation matters.

It makes a difference.

It can make or break us.

Like it or not, our haircut matters, the clothes we wear matters, and the shoes we wear matters.

How we present ourselves, how we carry ourselves, and how we take care of ourselves matters.

We’re constantly being judged.

People form opinions about us based on these shallow factors.

I want the world to take me as I am.

I want to be liked and respected for who I am.

Unfortunately I’m learning that’s not how the world works.

If we want to be taken seriously, we have to take care of ourselves.

Taking care of ourselves requires time, attention, effort, and money.

It’s an investment in ourselves.

Take pride in how well we take care of ourselves.

Take pride in being well put together.

Look good, feel good, be more confident.
