What to Wear to Get the Career You’ve Always Wanted

Remember that one outrageous scene in Cinderella where the fairy godmother transforms Cinderella's pink, tattered rag of a dress (as per her evil stepsisters' viewpoint) into a glorious blue wonder, to the extent of the crowd supposing her of royalty? How about Elsa's phenomenal number when she sang her angst out and changed her entire look from an uptight queen, and not to mention intimidating, to a rebellious, and not to mention fabulous, ice princess? Or that time when Genie lavished "street rat" Aladdin with a grand parade led by fancy elephants and belly dancers, turning his likeness to that of an actual prince? So where exactly am I going here -- well, case-in-point, (but hey, you gotta give me credits for an interesting leeway) all three Disney characters aforementioned, in order to be who they want to be, dressed the role before they got the role! [pullquote width="300" float="RIGHT"] "THEY DRESSED THE ROLE BEFORE THEY GOT THE ROLE!"[/pullquote]

Whatever your end goal may be -- be it something as extraordinary as being the queen of England, as fun as rocking the stage with hiphop dancing, as technical as learning how to fix a car, as humane as treating cancer patients, or as entrepreneurial as setting up a tire company -- once you dress the part, you'll end up thinking the part, feeling the part, and later on, you'll BE the part! But before anything else, let's delve a little deeper, as are self-shaming, feeling incompetent, and conformity all unaddressed, and damaging, norms as of today, here's a quick motivational speech to somehow, and hopefully, change your thinking and lift you up:

The negative suppositions we feed ourselves are all lies -- we try to pattern ourselves to what we think the world only sees as fitting for a certain role (e.g. toned muscles, fair-skin), and once we experience setback from imitation, we feed ourselves criticisms, which all the while is actually a form of deception, only to grow more insecure; this is how our thinking functions. But the one thing (out of a million others) that contradicts with, God didn't create you for defeat, much less created you to belittle yourself, but rather burningly desires victory, joy, and love (of self and others) for you! Love yourself and your ambitions will love you! 🙂

Now, with that being said, after you rewire and disassociate your reasoning from claims that prove false and take a step towards self-affirmation, here's what YOU can do next to get started on achieving what you've always wanted to be -- DRESS IT TIL' YOU MAKE IT! 1. If you've always wanted to rap and beatbox till' the sun goes up, DRESS LIKE IT! #RapBeatboxRepeat IMG_1431 [left]FullSizeRender(33)[/left] [right] IMG_1436 [/right] IMG_1433
