What Uniform are you wearing?  According to an article by Sandra Blakeslee of the New York Times: “We think not just with our bodies, Dr. Galinsky said, and our thought processes are based on physical experiences that set off associated abstract concepts.  Now it appears that those experiences include the clothes we wear.”

“It has long been known that ‘clothing affects how other people perceive us as well as how we think about ourselves,’ Dr. Galinsky said. Other experiments have shown that women who dress in a masculine fashion during a job interview are more likely to be hired, and a teaching assistant who wears formal clothes is perceived as more intelligent than one who dresses more casually.”

Although this information is discussing clothing, the uniform you wear goes way beyond this.  Questions to ask yourself:

  1. What do the clothes you wear say about you
    1. As a human being?
    2. As a lover?
    3. As a confidant or friend?
    4. For your future?
    5. What you contribute to the world?
  2. Does your uniform fit your mindset for life?

If you are dressing in clothes that show 90% of your skin and 10% of fabric, you may find people find it difficult to concentrate on your words or take them seriously.

If you are dressed in a 3-piece suit and your friend is upset or crying, you may want to consider taking off the suit coat or tie, it may help put you and your friend into a warmer mindset of healing when you hug  them.  Let's update our uniform for the Brilliance inside us!
