You Can Almost Buy Confidence
It’s proven that a clean car drives faster… K I’m lying… well I might not be because of the whole less friction/aerodynamics and “drag increasing with increased surface roughness” business, but what I’m getting at, is a fresh clean car “drives” faster… as in a metaphor for life. A polished man will most likely earn more, get the promotion, etc. And don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about the “say your prayers before bed”, “clean shaven”, “missionary only” type guy, I’m talking about the “put yourself together and take pride in your appearance” guy. A confident man cruises through life smoothly.
A new pair of polished boots, some clean socks and a new watch can give you the confident boost you need. Subtle things that on another man, you may notice as a whole package but may miss each individual piece upon first impression.
Ever notice a guy walk down the street and people move out of his way, he isn’t obvious or grabbing for attention but something about him parts pedestrians and sets him apart… it’s confidence.
It can’t be sold or bought but I can tell you this… I feel like a new man when I put on a great pair of new boots. Something changes in my posture, my walk, I am proud of my new shoes. The way they haven’t been scuffed yet. They don’t have dog poo on the bottom yet. I could walk into my condo and feel confident in leaving my shoes on.
Fun Fact! Confident is the key ingredient in #swagger. And so is non-smelly feet. The socks I’m wearing have carbon and silver nanoparticles in them to keep your man feet from smelling up your life.
So whether you’re wearing a t-shirt or a million dollar sapphire dinner jacket, try this… go out, buy a new watch, new shoes and a fresh pair of socks and watch how your attitude changes. As will the perception of you from others around you.
