How you perceive yourself might be far cry from who you really are. Or worse, it might be the opposite of how others perceive you. In order to make sure you understand yourself correctly, and make others see you the way you want to be seen, you should try image consulting. While achieving a better understanding of yourself and boosting your self-confidence are reasons good enough to schedule an image consultation (previous posts – part 1 & part 2), here is yet another important reason why you should hire an image consultant.
Better package, more confidence, hence more success.
If you’ve been following my previous posts, you already know I’m citing these reasons from my own personal experience from years ago. At that time, I wasn’t aware of what image consulting can do for me, or even the fact what image consulting is. The reason I tried image consulting, at that time known as business counseling, is because even though I tried my best, I couldn’t achieve the kind of success I wanted, or even please the people around me the way I felt I should.
In the first session of image consulting, I realized how harsh I was being on myself. I was pushing myself to the limits, stretching myself way too thin, trying to achieve something which I didn’t even need. In short, I had set unrealistic goals for myself, and that’s why success was ever elusive to me.
My image consultant set the records straight. She used a fantastic marketing approach to revamp me, a strategy I’ve adopted myself to help my clients. It’s about promoting yourself – the art of self-promotion. When you start quantifying your features and capabilities, focus on what you already have, you can let go of the irrational fear you possess because of abilities you think you need to succeed in this world. You need to take a look at yourself as a package, and see what you need, not what you want.
Overcoming this fear can boost your confidence. And the resulting confidence can lead to a better package, a better well-rounded person, who can take charge and move on in life. That’s what image consulting can do for you.
An image consultant can quantify your features and capabilities, without being your critic. An experienced image consultant can suggest certain areas for improvement – your physical appearance, behavior, working styles, skills, etc. – to help you boost your confidence and achieve your personal as well as professional goals, hence more success in life.
