Goddess 101: Bring Out Your IT-FACTOR
Start thinking like a Goddess. I love old Hollywood starlets. How they carried themselves and what they represented. They all seemed so put together even when they weren't all the time. We all want to look like one. Who doesn't want to be sexy and gorgeous like Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, Raquel Welch or Brigitte Bardot? What did these women have that other women don't?
They had confidence, sex appeal, and the IT-Factor. I've heard of the IT-Factor many times. and wondered what does it mean? What I came up with is that's the special something that attracts people to you. Kind of like charm, charisma or talent. Not everyone is blessed with it and celebrities are on a total different level with it then someone who isn't famous, but who says we can't all have our own IT-Factor? We all want to feel special and unique. We just have to play up on our talents and what makes us stick out.
To find your IT-FACTOR you have to love and get to know yourself.
What I mean by that is know what your strengths are. Know what attracts you to people. Get to know what you like, what you dislike, etc. Start loving yourself. See the positive in everything you have and what you don't have. Don't compare yourself to others because this only wears you down. Everybody is special in their own way. You need to find in your heart what makes you special and OWN IT.
Get your own style.
I completely changed my wardrobe recently because I looked in my closet and hated everything in it. Most of the clothes were from years ago and I haven't worn them in forever. What I realized through this process is that I changed who I am as a person and it reflects on my sense of style. Style is more than what you dress like. It's your attitude and the way you present yourself. It is showing the person on the outside who you are. Clothes are more than just clothes. It is a reflection of your personality. Believe me I don't have tons of money to spend on clothes, but when I do look for something to buy I find something in my own taste range and appropriate to the event I am going to. Your hairstyle and makeup fit into this category to. It is all a representation of YOU and who you are. Take a look at all of the women you admire from their outer appearance. What do they do? How do they dress? How do they present themselves?
Capture your true essence.
Find something about your personality and talents that stands about you that people love or something that you love to do and are really good at it and make it yours. Practice on it. Make it fabulous. Make it the essence of you. If you are a photographer, dancer, artist, comedian, writer, singer, designer, chef, hairstylist, or wherever your talents may lay be the best you can be. People see it when you love what you do and you make it yours. You aren't changing into someone else, just enhancing what you already have. It is important to always be you. I'm just saying be a shinier better image of you. In order to do all this you need to have a positive outlook on what you are trying to accomplish. People are drawn to a happy positive outlook. Capture that in everything you do.
Find something you like about yourself physically and play on it. Your curves, your eyes, your hair. Get the right fitting clothes, get a good hairstyle and color and great makeup. Show your confidence through putting yourself together. Confidence and being comfortable in your own skin is the key to being sexy.
Always remember who you are.
Don't act and put on a show. It will always come through. Find the best part of yourself and work with it. Act like today is your last day and you want to show the highest self you can show to others. That is your true IT-FACTOR.
