1. Invest in good quality tailored clothing that will stand the test of time. Buy conservative suits and trousers that won’t be out of style next season, and use dress shirts and accessories to personalize your fashion statement.
2. Find a competent tailor and treat him or her very well. Proper alterations on suits , trousers and sports coats are critical to your appearance.
3. Be a bit adventurous when matching shirts and ties. A large patterned necktie will work quite well with a small patterned dress shirt, and vice versa. For example, pair a paisley tie with a micro-check dress shirt.
4. Make sure your shoes are shined and appropriate for the rest of your ensemble. For example, don’t wear penny loafers with a suit, or cap toe dress shoes with chinos.
5. Do not underestimate the importance of accessorizing properly. Your belt should match your shoes and your socks should coordinate with your trousers.
6. Make yourself “perspiration proof”. Always wear an undershirt beneath your dress shirt, and carry a handkerchief to wipe perspiration from your hands or brow.
7. Purchase a small, fold-up umbrella and keep it in your briefcase at all times. Nothing takes the crispness out of a man’s appearance like an unexpected rain shower.
8. Unless you are in a profession where artistic flair is expected, always try to err on the side of dressing too conservatively.
9. Emulate ( but don not copy) your boss, or other senior executives at your company, in your manner of dress.
10. Never wear anything that you are not totally comfortable with. People will sense that something is not quite right.

It's really been a tough decision for me to let go of these relationships. It seems i have been begging some people to stay in my lives but guess what, it's time to let go of these unhealthy relationships.
A friend forwarded a mail from T.D Jakes and after reading the mail, i printed the mail and decided it seems it's time to let go finally of these relationships. I would share the mail with you all and tell me what you feel.
Incase you are in my shoes, after reading the mail make sure you let it go, probably the person's part in your success story has ended.
It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He'll give it to me.And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it.

I got this from an old friend and it blessed me so I thought it would be a blessing too.
A minister passing through his church in the middle of the day,Decided to pause by the altar and see who had come to pray.
Just then the back door opened, a man came down the aisle,And the minister frowned as he saw the man hadn't shaved in a while.
His shirt was kind a shabby and his coat was worn and frayed, The man knelt; he bowed his head, then rose and walked away.
In the days that followed, each noon time came this chap,Each time he knelt just for a moment, a lunch pail in his lap.
Well, the minister's suspicions grew, with robbery a main fear,He decided to stop the man and ask him, “What are you doing here?"The old man said, he worked down the road.
Lunch was half an hour.Lunchtime was his prayer time, for finding strength and power.
"I stay only moments, see, because the factory is so far away;As I kneel here talking to the Lord, This is kinda what I say: "I JUST CAME AGAIN TO TELL YOU, LORD, HOW HAPPY I'VE BEEN, SINCE WE FOUND EACH OTHER'S FRIENDSHIP AND YOU TOOK AWAY MY SIN. DON'T KNOW MUCH OF HOW TO PRAY, BUT I THINK ABOUT YOU EVERYDAY. SO, JESUS, THIS IS JIM CHECKING IN TODAY."
The minister feeling foolish, told Jim that was fine.He told the man he was welcome to come and pray just anytime.
Time to go, Jim smiled, said "Thanks." He hurried to the door. The minister knelt at the altar; he'd never done it before.His cold heart melted, warmed with love, and met with Jesus there.
As the tears flowed, in his heart, he repeated old Jim's prayer: "I JUST CAME AGAIN TO TELL YOU, LORD, HOW HAPPY I'VE BEEN, SINCE WE FOUND EACH OTHER'S FRIENDSHIP AND YOU TOOK AWAY MY SIN. I DON'T KNOW MUCH OF HOW TO PRAY, BUT I THINK ABOUT YOU EVERYDAY. SO, JESUS, THIS IS ME CHECKING IN TODAY.
" Past noon one day, the minister noticed that old Jim hadn't come.As more days passed without Jim, he became to worry some.
At the factory, he asked about him, learning he was ill.
The hospital staff was worried, but he'd given them a thrill.
The week that Jim was with them, Brought changes in the ward.His smiles, a joy contagious.Changed people, were his reward.
The head nurse couldn't understand why Jim was so glad, when no flowers, Calls or cards came,Not a visitor he had.
The minister stayed by his bed,He voiced the nurse's concern:No friends came to show they cared. He had nowhere to turn.
Looking surprised, old Jim spoke up and with a winsome smile;"The nurse is wrong, she couldn't know, that in here all the while everyday At noon He's here, a dear friend of mine, you see,
He sits right down, takes my hand, Leans over and says to me: "I JUST CAME AGAIN TO TELL YOU, JIM, HOW HAPPY I HAVE BEEN, SINCE WE FOUND THIS FRIENDSHIP, AND I TOOK AWAY YOUR SIN. ALWAYS LOVE TO HEAR YOU PRAY, I THINK ABOUT YOU EACH DAY, AND SO JIM, THIS IS JESUS CHECKING IN TODAY."
Stay blessed and remember God loves you more than you can ever think or Imagine

He had no servants, yet they called Him MASTER.
He had no degree, yet they called Him TEACHER.
He had no medicines, yet they called Him HEALER.
He had no army, yet kings feared Him.
He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world.
He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him.
He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.
I feel honoured to serve such a Leader who loves us!
If you believe in God and in Jesus Christ His Son. Post a comment on for HIM.
HE is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Infact my best Friend.
