Dress for Success and Build Confidence

inspirational speaker for healthcareLife can be brutal in flannel. Last week I sneaked out of my hotel room in my flannel pajamas to quell my insatiable desire for a Snickers bar.

As the door slammed shut, I realized I had forgotten my room key. Locked out of my room, I slinked down to the Hilton lobby. A large event was taking place and people were decked out in satin and suits. I scurried to the front desk clad in flannel, suddenly feeling embarrassed, begging for my room key. After passing the necessary security clearance, they issued me a new room key.

I entered the elevator, avoiding eye contact at all costs, begging for a direct flight to my floor with no detours to pick up other passengers. No such luck. Every stop was more and more painful as I tried to hide out in the corner.

Funny how flannel can take every ounce of confidence out of me. I was a motivational speaker for a healthcare conference the following morning, where eye contact was not optional. Yet, dressed in a black tailored suit I felt a lot more confident.

Ironically, one of the other guest speakers for the healthcare conference was doing a speech called, Dress for Success. The inspirational speech reinforced how the way we dress helps build confidence and leaves a positive impression. I would have to agree.

As the closing motivational speaker for the healthcare event, my inspirational speech was titled, This would be Funny if it Wasn't Happening to Me!
