My life as a model was focused on my physical appearance… my height, my weight and my hair, my skin, my clothing and if I was beautiful enough to book the next job. Nobody cared if I had a brain and having an opinion was certainly not appreciated. I remember the very last audition I went out on. I was almost 6’ tall, I was 128lbs, and I was told that I needed to lose weight and lose my muscle mass. I was super athletic, loved to run and be active, yet it wasn’t enough. I was too flat-chested, too muscular, and not scrawny enough to become really successful in the world of modeling.
I learned at a young age that how you feel about yourself, and how you carry yourself is ultimately more important than how you look. Looks are important, as they play a role in sexual attraction, but looks are not everything! Many people find other qualities more important than looks. Other qualities like confidence and self-esteem. It’s really important to note that external beauty has an expiration date. When we are 65 years old, we will all look the same! The most beautiful people I know are the people that are beautiful from within. They love themselves and the world around them. Confidence comes from within us, not from outside influences.
Do you carry yourself with confidence? How well you carry yourself and how confident you appear to others you are interested in will more likely determine how attractive you are and how sexy you will be perceived to be than most all other aspects of your appearance. Confidence is about being emotionally stable and centered in yourself and not being dependent on validation from others. Becoming confident can seem difficult if you aren’t already confident. But confidence is a skill and just like any other skill, the more you practice it, the easier it becomes.
So, I decided that I would put my years of modeling experience to good use. I am utilizing my runway skills and teach a monthly class for women called “High Heel Appeal”…how to walk with confidence in your high heels. http://www.HighHeelAppeal.com
And I’ve also filmed an instructional DVD which will be available on October 26, 2009. Check out the making of the DVD, watch the TRAILER and get more info here: http://www.highheelappeal.com/dvd.htm
