As a person that used to live on the streets and was a single mom working in a packinghouse to survive, it has been my saving grace to learn the "tool" of elegance. This is a tool to be used for greater self-esteem, better jobs and making friends. By visualizing Oprah Winfrey's elegance, adopting her smile and warmth in hard times, people treated me with more warmth in return.
Elegance is understated self-empowerment; adopt the approach, "less is more" and learn the following steps. Visualize all the qualities you admire in those with serene elegance. This can be an actor, writer, or friend that carries himself or herself with quiet self-confidence (think President Obama or Oprah Winfrey). Think of this person as your Self-Confidence Mentor. Download your mentor's positive qualities into your psyche. This is like downloading and listening to a favorite song – soon you can sing the melody and all the words. Many actors use this art to make a scene flawless. So can you!
Play this personality in your mind over and over again so that you know it by heart. Then use it as a tool for more self-confidence and people skills. Practice it during job interviews and social situations – soon it will become natural to you. Adopting elegance will make for better first appearances and open doors for success.
Like wearing tinted contact lenses to enhance your attractiveness, this is a strategy for enhancing your personality. But emulating your mentor's appearance is also part of adopting elegance. This is not the same as celebrity worship; this is borrowing the behavior of someone we admire, and acting it out for job interviews, dates or nerve wracking public appearances.
Whether rich or poor, dressing with elegance makes a good first appearance. Remember that elegance is about using the "less is more" approach for self-empowerment.
Now, more then ever, you need to be ahead in job interviews. This also means at the job itself, once you have it. You can do this! Adopt elegance for better job interviews, to help make friends with like-minded people as well as to gain serenity, self-confidence and make a good first impression.
Learning elegance is a great tool for opening doors to new and better life chapters. Like all skills, we learn through imitation. We have been doing it since babies. You can still be yourself – you are just summoning the elegance that is already inside you. Surround yourself with the spiritual essence of someone you admire and soon others will be emulating your elegance.
