A lot of people are afraid to say what they want, that’s why they don’t get what they want – Fashion clothes, Relationships and work promotions.
If you are not aware, you probably do this a lot – Not speak up because you are afraid of what they might think of you. Fear is unpleasant and it’s usually caused by the threat of pain, danger or harm. When you are in fear of asking for a promotion at work, you are not thinking of yourself and your well-being, you are thinking about your boss. How can you upgrade yourself when the person whose feelings you consider the most are your bosses feelings and how he or she will react to your seemingly ‘absurd’ idea of getting a raise or a promotion…
The day you will start looking out for yourself is the day you will have truly grown and matured as a human being. We get so caught up in pleasing others that we forget pleasing number one! The next time you are afraid to ask for what you what, ask yourself, why am I even afraid, what’s the worse that could happen? Well, if you ask nicely, nothing will happen and, even if the answer Is no.. at least now you know and can do something about it like getting another, more satisfying job or working harder in the current job so that you can qualify for a promotion, if that was the feedback,
We fear asking for the things we want, even in significant relationships. I want to be loved in a certain way but if you don’t say anything, nothing will happen and the next person will not be aware of your needs.
Someone approached me about doing some visuals for a company. I asked about the pay and they said they would not be paying me but promoting me. Well, in this day and age and having had a lot of experience in the fashion and beauty industry, getting promoted is good, but getting paid is better. If it was three years ago I would have said yes, but now.. my needs have changed and some things no longer excite me. I mean, the reason they sent me the email in the first place was because they believe I can do the job. So I politely declined.
If we don’t ask for what we want, we will not get it. What I absolutely do not compromise on thou when it comes to fashion, is fashion clothes. This dress is from Lipsy London South Africa and I got it at Edgars, in Brooklyn Mall. Fashion clothes make the woman; a woman that is naked has little or no influence in society. But what makes fashion clothes from Lipsy London even better, and give you a sense of power, is the intricate detail on the fashion clothes. This Lipsy London Dress in the colour blush pink was an option I had for the cosmopolitan event. I chose these particular fashion clothes from Lipsy London because of their sexiness. As I said earlier, if you won’t ask for what you want you will not get it. And if you don’t reach out to grab it, someone else will take it from you.
In a nutshell, I wore this dress to lunch the following day and the afternoon was awesome. I felt sexy and empowered in that dress and think all of us can take some inspiration from these detailed and luxurious fashion clothes. This dress was not mine until I asked for it and that’s how we all should live our lives. Never be silent about the things that matter especially if those things that matter have intricate details on them like this Lipsy London dress South Africa.
