How Then Should You Look Beautiful And Dress Up?

How Then Should You Look Beautiful And Dress Up?

First, whatever dress you put on, you’ll never pleased everybody.

Most people don’t have sophisticated fashion taste anyway.

Secondly, many fashion designs and trends started as a “strange” and even “ugly and unacceptable” impression.

Thirdly, it’s not a dress that makes the person but the other way around.

If you are brave enough to put on a “weird” dress and you’re consistent in driving home meaning, purpose, beauty and value of that dress, you can turn the fashion tide.

Fourthly, if you carry yourself well, you can even start a new trend and even become a fashion icon.

More importantly, please note that the concept of physical beauty is a big fat lie.

A lie perpetuated by many individuals and organizations in the commercial world.

They include many organizers of “beauty” contests, image and grooming authors and trainers, and suppliers of “beauty” products.

The truth is that every person is beautiful in his or her own unique ways.

Some will discover their own beauty and use it for the greater good.

On the other hand, many will be distracted and be misled by the world’s frills, fads, fears, foolishness, fetishes, or fashions about beauty.

Sadly, these group may not find the true and lasting meaning of beauty.

They will continue to chase after the winds of pseudo-beauty, and eventually reap a whirlwind.

As a property investor, I believe that looks and appearances to please others and yourself is like a leasehold property. They won’t last.

Looks and appearances are deceiving.

They are like a property brochure, model or show flat – pleasing to the eyes but they may not reflect realities of a property.

Take a leaf from the beautiful things of nature.

They do not compete and compare with each other.

In their own unique ways, they brighten and enlighten the world around them.

True beauty should therefore be a lifelong asset.

It’s not captured by the eyes or a photo – but felt by the heart.

Beauty should not be evaluated just by reflection from a mirror but reflection of the people you have positively impacted.

True beauty therefore does not come from outward physical appearance but from a shining light in your soul.

It may not be seen by the eyes but it can be deeply felt by souls around you.

Beauty does not need attention. Yet, others will not get tired of looking at you.

The paradox of beauty is that the more you chase after it, the more illusive it becomes.

When you start to be yourself and to love yourself, you start to become beautiful.

Just as importantly, look for the beauty in others and they will start to see the beauty in you.

When you live up to your best self and live to serve others, people will see beauty in and through you.

That’s far more important than the judges’ score cards in a beauty pageant.

It’s definitely more worthwhile than just looking for beauty in a mirror or at a photo of yourself even if it’s the best photoshopped photo of yourself.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
