Not being taken seriously can be frustrating.
If you follow us on Instagram, we posted the following quote:
“Fashions fade, style is eternal” – Yves Saint Laurent.
This has been a mantra we live by at Dapper Effects, that YOU live by if you subscribe to the values we hold here in this community. With so many things being challenged in today’s society, in today’s world, it’s more important than ever to take a stance on something that you believe in. When you don’t believe in something, you can quickly become like a sail boat lost at sea, tossed around from the ever changing wind and storms.
When it comes to being Dapper, it’s healthy to dial in on your style. Laurent made that very point that fashions tend to be like fads, they fade with time. However, when you hold a certain style or even deeper than that, you hold certain values, those live on forever. When you live your life a certain way, when you are intentional with your actions, You may start to notice that people hold greater stock in what you have to say.
When you make the conscious choice to not live to a certain standard, it’s hard to be taken seriously.
Do you know why? It’s because people for the most part can read through deceit. If you are lying to yourself about who you believe you are to meant to be, you most certainly are lying to everyone else. Lets take physical appearance for a moment. There’s a reason why you carry yourself a little differently when you put on a suit for an interview.
There’s a reason a judge carries himself or herself a little differently when they wear those robes of authority. There’s something to that. There’s tradition and it’s timeless, like character. If you feel like your voice isn’t being heard, ponder this thought: Be consistent with your actions, live with character and others will take you more seriously.
