Appearance is extremely important when your goal is to make an impression. Without good appearance, you cannot make a good impression on anyone. Physical appearance is not the only element needed to make a good impression, but it is absolutely critical. People judge each other (and themselves) a lot, based on how they look. We’ll get into the acting later.
it’s amazing how much a person’s attitude towards another person changes based on just what they are wearing. Wearing nice clothes allows you to gain a higher place in the social foodchain. Girls seem to get this point better than guys.
Dress well at all times! Have a clean shaved/trimmed beard; get regular haircuts that look nice; take care of your shoes; wear a nice watch, and learn to be in your clothes. Develop a style, grow into it so that you’re comfortable, and that will hopefully move you up the social foodchain a little. 🙂
