What Does Your Image Say About You?

Here’s the deal! People not only remember what you say and how you make them feel, but they remember how you look too.Your image is your brand. You are your brand and your brand is you. No matter what you do in life, your image matters.We often speak of businesses having images. Well they do, but so do you.

Your image is what sets you apart from everyone else.

Personal image has been known to disqualify you from a job or a promotion and even the type of opportunities you are presented with. For example, Beyonce has been very good at building a personal and profitable image. People buy her clothes, her music, her books and spend hundreds to attend her concert just to get that experience. She’s even got a fan club called the Beyhive. Beyonce and other notable musicians and entertainers have taken image to heart and started to use it to uplevel their personal and professional lives. You too have the same opportunity.

Don’t fear being different. Fear being the same.

  • First impressions and image definitely go hand in hand. Without knowing you, one will make assumptions whether true or not. It could cost a job, connection, or friendship. Employers also use social media to screen potential and current employees. What does your image say about you? Put your best foot forward and make a great and lasting impression from the beginning!

    • Exactly.. your attitude is your altitude for sure. Social media, in this new age, has caused many people to lose opportunities for sure.

  • Keeping up your personal and brand image is so important. And being consistent is key in that as well. I remember in elementary school learning “you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression” and it’s so true! People will often remember what they first thought about you.

    • Yes, they always told us that in school growing up as well! I agree with all your points in this post, Nichelle, and they’ve got me thinking on so many levels – honestly, as a blogger, your online presence is SO important (so I like to think I have worked hard to build and maintain a good image there) – BUT – if you came to my door during the work day, most likely you’d see exactly what I am: a work-at-home mama blogger LOL!

  • This is so true! When I was a child my mom always said to me that the attitude and the first impression is very important! Also, you show what you feel about you if you feel beautiful everyone is going to see you beautiful

  • This so true. It’s your image that gives trust to the people if they should trust you or not. Having a clear consistent image is so important.

  • Oh wow, when I read “You attract what you think you deserve,” it really resonated with me. I agree that image is important and should be maintained.

  • It’s crazy how you look says a lot about your or how others perceive you. First impressions are very important so you always want to put your best foot forward.

  • This is so true. First impressions are very important!! I love the quote about attracting what you think you deserve, so true!!

  • As hard as it is to think about, you are correct. We do attract the things in life we think we deserve. And we often settle for what we think we deserve, which is kind of sad but true. We do need to cultivate an image.

  • I think keeping your brand and image consistent and current is so important. First impressions are often what get people to stick around for more!
