Are you wondering why people do not give you a second chance or no chance at all, yet you have brilliant business ideas? Or maybe you have academic qualifications but no company seems keen to hire your? There is one thing you need to look into and that is your image.
Little do people know that those unintended actions contribute immensely and make an impact to the people we relate to. If you have a low self esteem or are suffering from lack of self confidence, it will show by the way you carry yourself around. Your body language and posture usually will portray what is inside you.
Personally, I would recommend employers not to write off all candidates who seem to be lacking self confidence, because some of these individuals once give the right exposure they could come out in flying colors. Our backgrounds play a major role in building our self worth, hence there are people who give half a chance in the right environment would adjust and with time gain confidence.
But even with this fact, it is important for you as individual to at least be presentable. Even though you may not have the latest fashion trends, make sure your clothes are clean and well ironed. Your shoes should also be polished and your hair neat. Am trying to say, you do not need a lot of money to appear presentable.
Generally, self image is about how you view yourself. It is a combination of your physical, visual and mental state. I hope you have gained something to help you improve your first impression and hence self image.
