As a man and practitioner of the TooManly lifestyle, your duty and responsibility is to look your prime.
To look your prime means to appear in a way that makes you feel confident, think and act confidently, and project confidence so that you can influence people and depart a positive impression anytime, anywhere and at any age of your life. This includes looking younger by making healthy lifestyle choices, being impeccably groomed, and dressing for success.
The way you dress and present yourself and how you take care of your body says a lot about your personality, shows the world how disciplined and organized you are, and affects how others perceive you. Looking good and presentable is also a powerful confidence-booster and enhances your ability to influence people.
As a man living and working in a highly complex and competitive society, you must recognize and understand the impact your appearance has on your world. It’s important to understand how the way you look affects your mindset and behavior, other people, the achievement of your goals, and, ultimately, your happiness.
Your clothing and grooming affects the way you think
When you appear authentic, attractive and appropriate, you think more positively about yourself, your situation and others. The clothes you wear can even control your mind to subsciously do things you might or might not want to do, an interesting phenomena known as “Enclothed Cognition”.
Not motivated enough to exercise daily? Wearing gym clothes, or at least carry them with you, makes it more likely that you will actually exercise and make healthy lifestyle choices. Likewise, any kind of clothing that is associated with a specific role activates all our knowledge and expectations about how people from that profession should behave. Need to think big? Wear a suit.
Your clothing and grooming affects how your feel
Feeling good about your appearance is a fast, effective way to boost self-confidence, overcome anxiety regarding your abilities and how people perceive you, and take on life’s challenges with intent and fearlessness.
Looking good makes you feel great, puts a spring in your step, commands respect, and provides a sense of pride in whatever you do. It can make you feel like a badass all the time
Your clothing and grooming affects how you act or behave
In making you feel good about yourself, a positive personal appearance effectively improves your behaviour and actions, particularly how you approach people and handle life’s challenges. When you feel good about yourself, it seems anything is possible.
Your clothing and grooming affects how people react and respond to you
First impressions matter, and your appearance makes a strong statement about your personality, values, attitudes, interests, knowledge, abilities, roles, and goals.
Your sense of dressing and personal grooming will earn you credibility from everyone, including your friends, bosses, colleagues, and even family.
Look Your Prime to achieve success, happiness, and fulfillment
The importance of clothing, personal grooming and mannerisms cannot be overstated. The way we look, the clothes we wear, and the way we groom ourselves affect our behavior, attitudes, personality, mood, confidence, interactions with others, and how we are perceived, and this is why you must look your prime.
What are you doing to look younger? How often do you exercise? Do you eat healthy? Is your wardrobe up to standard? Are your grooming habits conducive to success? Make sure to ask yourself these questions everyday to ensure that you are doing everything possible to look and feel your best anytime, anywhere and at any age, both to yourself and to the world.
