My article in Rotary magazine that was released on 31st OF August by Mr.MAALAN Chief Editor of NEW GENERATION MEDIA
Here is the complete article –
Your personal image is important; it is what people think about you! Companies and some public figures use PR firms to build or reinforce their personal image, where their aim is to persuade the public to create a favorable opinion of their client. Your personal image affects your success in your career, personal life and public life. Personal image does matter!
People judge others based on three elements.
- How they dress
- How they speak
- How they act.
When I do workshops /sessions with students I discuss how they are misunderstood. I share with them how I would make a judgment about a student in the first five seconds of seeing him/her. They unanimously object to such a quick leap to judgment. I usually turn it around and ask them if they would they make a judgment if they saw a hot looking boy or girl across campus. The answer is always “yes”.
Do you only think about your personal image when you interview or go to work? Do you ever run into bosses, professors or colleagues in your off time? How are you treated when you are in a store or other venues outside of work? Would it be a lot easier if you dressed up all the time? Sure, but that may not make you feel comfortable. I think that is important too. Your personal image should fit your personality.
You don’t need to dress up all the time to make a positive impression. It is more necessary to look good! Do you “look well put together”? Are your clothes clean and pressed? Is it appropriate for the occasion? Personal opinion may enter into this, but that is why it is your personal image. Own it. It is your choice! Personal image is more than what you wear! It is how you speak and act too. In social situations, you may notice someone because of the way they look or act.
So, let’s start a series of talks to help you look and feel good so you can reach “your maximum potential”.
