We’re all familiar with (and probably guilty of) the bold, over-ambitious new year’s resolution that somehow always gets forgotten by the third week in January. Losing a lot of weight or going from couch potato to super-fit athlete are probably the most common things people think they’re going to do, but they’re certainly not the only lofty goals out there, and it’s gotten to the point where the phrase “new year, new you” makes people roll their eyes at the sheer banality of it all.
Be the exception by having a real plan
Just because a lot of people don’t follow through on their hopes and dreams for the new year, doesn’t mean that you can’t follow through, or that you shouldn’t aim to make some beneficial changes in your life. There’s nothing to stop you from deciding to do something good for yourself and then actually doing it, but of course you might want to start by selecting a worthwhile goal that’s reasonably achievable, and then using the success of achieving it to help you believe that you really can accomplish the things you’re working toward.
Cultivate confidence with your personal style
There are quite a few reasons why overhauling your look and creating a new personal style is a good first goal for the year, and it all comes down to building confidence. Yes, there’s the momentum of using your success with one project to propel you forward for other projects, but having a new look in particular can really help with your self-belief in general. Think about how you feel about yourself when you know you look good, versus how you feel when you’re not so sure, or when you’re going through a slump. Now, imagine knowing that you look good every time you leave the house – can you picture the effect that would have on the rest of your day, your month, or your year?
The right time is now
Choosing to create a personal style for yourself in the new year is more than just about clothing, it’s about setting up a foundation that you can build on as you go from strength to strength. It’s never too soon to start on that journey, and the best part is that it’s both easy and fun to get started, so there’s no reason to put it off. All you have to do is come in and speak to a Wardrobe Consultant – it’s the all-important first step that will lead you on the journey to a new look and a new you!
