The Impact of my Groomed Look

Luck or Confidence do matter in grabbing an opportunity but can we neglect our looks and say ‘No’ to a well-groomed face. What do you think?

For me the answer is a big "No". A groomed look gives a good impact on the other person and is very important. We should take a step ahead and groom ourselves and have a well-groomed face. A groomed face with a good luck and confidence can do wonders and make you succeed in your day to day tasks.

To support I will tell you an instance. A few months back, my company sent me to a client's office in Gurgaon, which is around 20 KM away from my home. They sent me, to get the contract of renewal signed from the client. I have been doing this for years, so I was confident about getting the renewal.

I was in a hurry, so could not shave. My confidence made me neglect my looks and my ungroomed face. When I reached the client's office, the receptionist gave me weird look. I knew I was looking untidy and the reaction of her was obvious. She told me that, sir is in a meeting and you will have to wait for a while. After waiting for about an hour, the receptionist came and said, ‘The meeting is over and sir is calling you’. He told me that he will read the contract and then sign. He said that ‘You come tomorrow and take the signed copy’, I replied ‘OK Sir’.

I came back to my office and went to the client next day. Exactly the same sequence happened. I waited for an hour and then he told me to come on Monday. I said to myself, ‘Abe ye takla sign kyu nahi karta’ and again came back to my office.

On Sunday, I groomed myself and had a shave. I takes a lot of time, to groom myself because I do it only on Sundays. Monday morning I woke up, took bath and went to the client's office directly from my home. Today, I decided that I will not leave the client’s office till the time he doesn’t signs the contract of renewal. I entered his office, the receptionist smiled upon seeing me. I thought for a while that a groomed face gives such a nice impression. She told me, that sir is in his cabin you may go and meet him.

Client upon seeing me said ‘I have not read the contract yet, but don't worry I will read it and sign now, you wait for a moment’. He took some time, read the contract and signed it. After this incident, I realized that a well-groomed face, luck and confidence can help you a lot in your day to day tasks by giving a good impact.
