Or to put it more accurately, Attitude Experiment.
The secret to beauty is easy. It is positivity and confidence. It is NOT about what you wear or the size clothes you fit in. It's not about money or the latest trends. That is what the media wants you to believe. They spend billions of dollars trying to make you believe these falsehoods, but the truth is it as simple as being positive and having confidence.
I decided to do an experiment. I wanted to test what I preach. I decided to go to Wal-Mart on two occasions with two totally different behaviors and appearances.
The first time I went to Wal-mart I purposefully dressed in workout attire, no makeup, just done hair, slouched, and made a conscious effort to look down. While shopping I was completely ignored. No one greeted me. No one asked if they could help me. No one offered me a smile. And when I went to check out, the checker didn't even engage in conversation. In fact the only social interaction I got was the total of my bill, just to take my money. I left mad at the world, no one even knew I existed. By the time it was done I wanted to stay angry, but I knew better.
The second time I went to buy the same items, I was dressed appropriately. My hair and makeup was done. My clothes were clean and coordinating. I walked how I always walk, like a lady. The experience was mind blowing. I was greeted as soon as I entered the store. Then, while attaining the same items, four associates offered to help me. I gave and received 16 smiles. The checker engaged in a full conversation with me. Then I found someone who was willing to walk with me to my car. Totally different experience.
I know beauty is you. I am the same person. Same eyes , hair, weight. The difference was me, not the world. When I didn't care and was frowning no one wanted to help me; no one wanted to be with me. If I was looking for acceptance I would have felt more rejected because I asked the world to ignore me and it did. When I cared about myself and my appearance I felt better. When I felt confident, other saw my confidence and smile and offered to help the polished, happy, believed-in me. I went in the world happy and returned even happier.
Run your own experiment and share it with me on Facebook @Tami's Salon. If you are a negative person and you feel picked on and ugly, change. Act confident and positive and watch your perspective change. Beauty is positivity and confidence. You can do this without money, diet, exercise, and a new job, but changing your behavior might motivate you to change these things about yourself. You can change right now. Watch your world change.
