My client, Johnny G posted a great idea on his newsletter this week that I thought we could all reflect on. It points out that your mindset is everything and applies to both beauty and business.
Subscribe to Johnny's list at his Web site and watch for his new book, coming in February.
From the Take Home Stylist, Beauty Tip of the Week
2009 Miss America
winner, Katie Stam gave this definition of glamour. "[Glamour is] that
beauty that you feel on the inside, it's that confidence, that radiance inside
of you, that's what glamour is," Stam said.
Katie believes she is glamous and beautiful. As a result, she is ready to take on the world with her personal expression of inner beauty projecting to the outer world.
Beauty always starts from the inside and reflects to outer world. Without acknowledging your inner beauty, you are only an attractive shell to the people you encounter.
Beauty is not about your hair, make-up or clothes. Beauty starts in your mind.
On the other side of the coin, I saw a television interview a while back that featured a lady who lost over 140-pounds. She looked fantastic with her fit new body, great hair style, make-up and clothes. She looked picture perfect.
But she didn't have the mind set to support her new look.
When she was overweight she was frequently the butt of cruel jokes. She could not let those past experiences go. She was never able to change her thinking, even after she lost all that weight.
She became a new person on the outside but the inside still felt like an extremely overweight woman. She simply could not accept the complements people were giving her now.
These are both excellent examples of how beauty starts in your mind first.
All you have to do is always remember, you ARE beautiful in every expression of your life. Period!
Your life will change and you'll be a shining light to everyone your encounter, everyday, once you embrace and live this idea.
Thank you for sharing this idea with my readers, Johnny. It's so very true. Mindset has everything to do with who you are.
Of course, who you are deep inside drives the values you create and share with others
