Secret to happiness is Feeling Fearless in Your Clothing

tshirt 300x300 Secret to happiness is Feeling Fearless in Your Clothing

When was the last time you got dressed in the morning and obviously knew you looked well? Did it make you feel happy and fearless?  The mirror was staring back at you saying, “Today, you can tackle anything!”  Confidence was pouring out of every pore on your body.  Maybe I am getting a little carried away, but let’s face it clothing can definitely make a difference in our confidence and happiness within.

We all know that to find the happiness we deserve it is clearly obvious that we take care of ourselves.  We have to take command of our self-esteem and like the way we look and feel.  By taking care of ourselves it can mean taking a little money and going out and doing something for ourselves, perhaps treat ourselves and buy some new clothes.

Are you aware that clothes say a great deal about a person and their personality? Clothes not only   protect our body from the elements, but they are also a sign of our personality and part of our body language.  Our clothes help us make a statement about ourselves.

More people are dressing casually these days and I don’t know about you, but sometimes it is hard to find the right shirt for those beautiful pair of jeans that feel so great.

Do you happen to own that one shirt that when you put it on it makes you feel positive, relaxing and intelligent, but at the same time filled with motivation and confidence? It makes you want to go out and conquer the world?  People look at you curiously and wonder why you are happy and chipper, don’t they?

I am personally excited to share this remarkable and playful shirt of happiness with you.

When I wear this shirt, I get lovely smiles from the on lookers. When you wash it, it comes out looking new again and again.  It is made by Zazzles where t-shirt dreams become reality.  This is your opportunity to be one of the first to get the most powerfully happy t-shirt out there. Click here to check it out “Rate Me Happy.”

While you are at it you may be delighted to know that good self-esteem can play a big role in the Secret to happiness along with clothing.   Click below to down load your free copy to “Take Command of Your Self-Esteem.” It is only going to be available for a short time, because I have found a publisher that wants to publish it for me and then I will no longer be giving it way.

How do you Rate your Happiness?

    When I need a lift – I always wear something RED.

    Which is odd since I am a redhead. But It really lifts me up.l

    • Hi Corinne,

      Red is good. Some reds I feel good in and there are some that I don’t. That is why you do so good with your interviews Corinne. Red is showing that you are in control and know what you are doing. You are a leader.
      Have a very happy day and put on the red.
      hugs

    It’s so true. I do thousands of videos a year, both on you tube and on other services and I always try and wear a fun t-shirt or bright colors. Judging by the response and following over the years, this truly works.

    • Hi Mitch,

      Yes, I do think clothing can make a difference and I am glad to hear that it is working for you. i really feel good when I wear pastel colors. Love the spring time. I have to say in the winter time I still wear the brighter colors.
      Have a wonderful day and by the way I would like to see the nuggets win of course, but don’t think that can happen.

    Clothing makes a huge difference, and if I’m feeling fit and healthy, I’m happy. If I feel sick or tired, I don’t put on nice clothes – its a vicious circle! Feeling better – healthy – fit and in shape, then I can wear anything and feel great!

      • I really like the lounging clothes. when I go shopping a have to stay away from that department. Every once in a while it is nice to dress up in something and feel sexy.
        Debbie

    • Yes, Michelle clothes make a difference. I find that when I am sick and tired that is when I do have to pay more attention to what I wear. If I put on something bright and cheerful it helps me not to feel so sick and tired. I helps change that mood.
      Hope you are dressed for a happy day.

  5. Hi Debbie,

    I so agree with you. Casual dressing for me, can slip into rather poor clothing style. Just last Friday I bought a new suit and shirt for an important meeting this week and I’m hoping this will lift my self esteem and performance. For my future videos I will take much more notice of this.

    Thank you for such a helpful site.

      Maybe we can see you in that new suit in one of your videos. I am visualizing you on a ski slop with a suit on. You have to admit that would be pretty humorous. I will be watching for that video with the suit. Hoping your not keeping it just for meeting.

    I remember in my corporate world days, I was running a ‘be positive’ workshop and one of the exercises was to be positive about others.

    We stuck a piece of paper on our backs and everyone had to write something positive about the person.

    Three people wrote ‘how good I looked in my shirt’.

    That suddenly became my favorite shirt!

    • That is cool Andrew for company to do something like that. Did you get to see what people wrote right away or did you have to wait until the end of the workshop? Isn’t it funny how little things like a comment on our clothing can change on how we feel about certain clothes.
      Thanks for sharing and have a very happy day and enjoy what you wear.

    Hi Debbie,

    The shirt looks great since I have always loved wearing those cotton and comfortable tees while I’m outdoors and yes, it boosts up the mood when you’re all dressed up especially when your shirt speaks for itself. :)

    Let’s motivate ourselves to wear happy clothes more often now and thanks Debbie for this.

I find that this does happen with this shirt. If you have any idea’s on a better one I would love to hear about it.

  8. I have a sport coat that I bought several years ago. That one coat cost me more than two new suits. With it I bought pants and shirts to dress it up or down. When I wear it someone, even if I don’t know them will tell me how good the coat looks. Its hard for a short man to get clothes compliments, so of course, it is my go to piece of clothing when I need to feel I look my best.

    • I sure know about the short part. Even when I wear my jeans if I wear higher shoes they make my legs look longer. I was going to sue the city for building the sidewalk to close to my bottom. Think it would work?
      Sometimes it pay to spend that extra money for something that really makes you feel good when you put it on. Glad to hear that you did just that.

  9. I’ve always been aware of the importance of “dressing smart” for important events to help feel good; but recently I’ve started paying more attention to how I dress at the weekend and generally when I don’t have to go anywhere. I was aware that going around unshaven and dressed like a slob may not matter in terms as I didn’t see anyone, but it made me feel like a slob! OK, I don’t paint the fence in a shirt and tie, but my “default setting” is to pay attention to my appearance and feel the benefits in my confidence.
    .-= David Rogers@self confidence´s last blog ..Self Confidence Quotes Video =-.

    • That is good, David, my “default setting” is to pay attention to my appearance and feel the benefits in my confidence. Love a sense of humor. Very will put. And i am very glad to hear you don’t paint the fence in a shirt and tie. I have to tell you though when I paint I do have a pair of cut offs and a t-shirt that is old, but I still feel pretty darn good in it. I think the week end can be a lot of peoples down fall. With good kick around clothes I get more done.

    • Hi Joel,

      Joel I would say you are on top of things if you’re getting dressed every day. As for the haircut I really wouldn’t do that every day. (Know you didn’t mean the haircut that way, but just couldn’t give up the chance to mess with you) Shave maybe, but just try it one day with the smart clothes and let me know how you feel.

    I think everyone has “happy clothes” in their wardrobe. It’s a question of wearing that happy clothes more often and wearing the happy clothes when our moral needs a boost.

  12. Tom says:

    My happy clothes are my pjs. What’s interesting about it is that I don’t particularly care for them, but they are a costant reminder that I made it. It took me almost ten years until I got to the point that I could work for myself. I feel like I don’t have to pretend with my clothes anymore. Of course, I don’t leave home without a suite unless we take the kid to play, but that’s another story. I have heard from many people that if you work for yourself, you have to treat it like a business. So far, I agree. But when it comes to scheduling your work time, wearing a suite to remind you that you have to work, etc., it would just remind me of my 9-5. Now I’m not saying that that’s the way to go, it just works for me. So, anything, really that wouldn’t work in a corporate environment makes me much more productive and happy.
    .-= Tom´s last blog ..Why Is Braille on Drive-Through ATMs? =-.

    • Tom I don’t see anything wrong with working in your PJ’s if they make you feel good. That is what is important about clothing. If it makes you feel good go for it! When I worked in the corporate world I wore different clothes. Now it is nice to put my jeans on with a great shirt.
      Have fun in those PJ’s Tom and don’t work to hard.

  13. You’re so right, clothes ARE important, and directly linked to how we feel. It is not by accident, I believe, that popular language has chosen the word habit to even describe the way we dress mentally as it were – “habit” is French for “dress (or suit).” In my younger years, clothes were all-important. My parents bought me a pair of boots I didn’t like. I was no older than 10. My choice was to wear those boots a play outside with my friends, or not wear them an stay inside. I believe after two weeks of my refusing to go out, my parents gave in … lol … Come to think of it, I’m glad I wasn’t my father :-)))
    .-= Beat Schindler´s last blog ..Personal Growth The Easy Way: Focus On Your Strengths =-.

    • I know what you mean. When my girls were small I would always shop on the racks that were the sales racks. My middle daughter later told me that most of the clothes I got her she considered her week end clothes. It didn’t dawn on me that she was only wearing these on weekends. She never complain, but just wore them on weekends. Sometimes i do think that as parents we have to understand clothes are also important to children, but not to the extent that we pay to much for them and all the m=name brands.

  14. Jen says:

    Hi Debbie,

    The shirt looks fantastic! It’s true that what you wear can really give you a boost and make the difference between feeling confident and not feeling great about yourself. Blue is supposed to be a very calming colour, and red is supposed to fire up your imagination and inspire creativity.

    With best wishes,

    Jen x

    • Glad you like the shirts. I love the way mine makes me feel. Got one that is white and has blue sleeves. Maybe the blue is what makes me feel good when I wear it. Guess by what you are saying I need to start wearing red when I am working on the site and blog. I’ll have to try that. Thanks for the heads up Jen.
      You have a great day or should I say evening.

    Hi Debbie,
    The t–shirts are fabulous! Guaranteed smile magnets!

    You’re right about clothes shifting our moods. When I’m wearing clothes that feel comfortable and fit the occasion, I feel relaxed and confident. I feel free to mix and mingle without worrying about what’s too tight or too short or too whatever.

    We do a lot of work on our attitudes to keep us young from the inside out. Dressing the part is the icing on the cake :D

  16. Lisa says:

    Love the t-shirt — I wish all clothes made me that happy. I don’t think most people realize how many different things your outfit can say about you. I work in a large office, and I am amazed daily at the clothes people believe are appropriate office attire.

    For me it’s all about the fit. I feel most confident in clothes that fit me properly, and, of course, I also don’t wear flip flops to the office! :o)

    • Thank you Lisa and we even have the baby and pet shirt. I believe you are right “most people realize how many different things your outfit can say about you”. If they did realize it I don’t believe they would be wearing it. What really can bother me is when you see a mother in a store and she is look-in great, but her kids look like orphans.
      To each his own I guess, but we are all on the same page, CLOTHES DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE in our happiness.

  17. Debbie, I always try to wear clothes that I feel good in and that I think look good on me.

    I don’t own a lot of clothes, but I do try to buy quality clothing that I really like. Ever notice that we wear about 20% or our clothes 80% of the time?
    .-= John Soares@ Practical Life Design´s last blog ..Learn to Say NO =-.

    • It really makes you feel better when you wear something that makes you feel good, doesn’t it John. I know for myself it does. I did not realize that we only were 20% of what is in our closet. Now that I think of it that makes a lot of sense. Every season I go through my clothes and if I haven’t worn them within the year I give them away. The reason I don’t wear those clothes, is because I don’t feel good in them.
      Thanks John and you have a very happy day,
      Debbie

  18. I live in a depressed town in Michigan (worst state economy in the US thankyouverymuch) and it’s fascinating to see how this plays out. No joke: it’s quite common to see people out and about in their pajamas. Even in the middle of the day, just walking down the street. My dad was visiting once and we were busy with a home improvement project and needed to go to the store. I laughed when he wanted to clean up first, because no one else here would bother.

    It’s easy to get a little lazy with your appearance in this environment. I’ve been trying to focus on looking at least put together, and insisting that the children be clean and well-kept as well. It’s not easy though – the boys love to wear those ripped jeans and the winter boots in June. :)
    .-= Amy LeForge´s last blog ..FFYF: Too Much Screen Time Edition =-.

    • It really has to be hard living in Michigan right now Amy. Glad that you are hanging in there an keeping that positive attitude. The really sad part is that when things do get rough that is when a person needs to be more careful in how they look. I grew up with 7 kids in the house and little money, but my mother always make sure we were clean, shoes polished, hair combed and clothes ironed. As children it made me feel much better. I would hate to know how I would have felt if she hadn’t done all this for us. You don’t have to have money to look and feel good.
      Hoping that things get better for Michigan. Thanks Amy for telling like it is in your part of this world.
      By the way I have some ripped jean and I have to admit I love them. (It is just the knees thought).

  19. Keller Hawthorne says:

    I don’t think I realized the power clothing can hold on your confidence until I stopped caring about the way I looked. Working from home does not help promote getting dressed up (makeup and all). Add pregnancy to the mix and I really stopped caring. Then, I did my maternity clothes shopping and bought a bunch of cute things that actually fit and made me comfortable. Suddenly, I noticed my posture was different and my attitude toward other people changed. I found myself wanting to leave the house more and felt much more confident going to the store or gas station. Amazing how clothes can impact our self-esteems.
    .-= Keller Hawthorne´s last blog ..The Greatest SEO Myths of Our Century Exposed – Part 2 =-.

    • Hi Keller,

      Isn’t it wonderful the change that clothes can make. When I was young and raising my girls that was one thing that I always did was get dresses in the morning, wearing something that I felt good in and fixing my face and hair. I always thought if mom feels good everyone is going to feel good. And it is very true.

      That is why it is so important for mothers and fathers to take a little time to make themselves feel good. Everything just runs smoother.

      When your pregnant it is really important to take the time for yourself.
      Glad you are feeling wonderful and keep taking the time for yourself, Keller.
