Making a first good impression is crucial to your success and building positive relationships.
"You never get a second chance to make a good first impression."
The fact is that when you first meet a person, they make judgment about you in approximately four seconds, and his judgment is finalized largely within 30 seconds of the initial contact.
In a survey of the members of the American Personnel Consultants those men and women who are responsible for hiring people for large companies generally agreed that they made their decision to hire or not to hire a person within 30 seconds of the first meeting.Everything contributing to the way you look on the outside is important.
If it’s not helping you, it’s hurting you.
While you cannot control your physical features, you have total control over your dress and grooming.
Your clothes are responsible for 95% of the first impression that you make on someone.
Your grooming, your hair style and the other ways you can determine your appearance from the neck up also exert an inordinate influence on the way that you are perceived.
So first, take complete control over every detail of your personal appearance and grooming. Resolve to look like a powerful, influential person in all your business activities.
Second, study fashion and proper dress so you know exactly what to wear and in what combination. Read a book, take a seminar or even hire an image consultant.
Small changes in your appearance can change your life.
“Making a great first impression is imperative to becoming an influential leader.”
