Look in the mirror before you leave the house. Stand there for a second. What impression do you think you give to the outside world?
Are you well-groomed? Have you had a haircut recently? Have you shaved or tidied up your beard?
Are you standing upright with your head up and your shoulders back or are you slightly slouched over?
Is your outfit appropriate for work? Is your outfit fit to face customers and clients?
Will your co-workers think you’ve made an effort today? Do you stand out or do you blend into the background?
Is your shirt ironed? Are your shoes polished? Have you cut your fingernails? Have you brushed your teeth? Have you flossed?
Are you wearing fresh underwear? Do your socks match? Are you wearing a nice watch?
Are you carrying excess body fat? Is your skin clear and healthy? Are your eyes red and bleary from the night before? Do you smell nice?
What impression do you want to give others?
I’m guessing you want to look attractive to people. Both to the general public and to the opposite sex.
You probably want to look confident and successful. Someone that others would like to interact with.
You know what that means and you know what that looks like. You know that guy at work who looks like a winner. You know that guy who looks at ease wherever he goes.
I’m not saying you want to look like a movie star or a charging CEO. But I’m sure you want to look like a guy who means business and who knows how to operate in the world.
Look again at the guy in the mirror. Is that guy giving off the impression you really want to give?
Be honest with yourself.
If you’re not giving the impression you want to give, then we’ve got work to do.
Tell me in the comments about the impression you’d like to give.
