Confidence is the key. Power comes from confidence and that needs to be maintained at all points of time. Appearance becomes a major blockage in the path of one’s confidence – you should either accept it or do something to change it.
Sleep well for good skin. Adequate sleep determines a major part of how you look. Radiant skin is often a boon of the wealthy and this can be achieved only if you sleep well. Balance your resting schedule and follow it even on weekends.
Look taller with the right outfit. As much as we hate it, power and tallness are closely linked in people’s minds. Those who are short should choose their outfits accordingly and go for fitting clothes and monochromatic colours instead of prints.
Use the rule of one-thirds when shopping – Shop less but spend more. So, rather than buying three shirts, buy one classy shirt, which would look better than all three combined.
