Mastering the Art of Commanding Attention

Mastering the Art of Commanding Attention

There are certain women who, upon entering a room, can stop a conversation in mid-sentence. No matter the occasion, they command attention. It isn’t a matter of their wearing gorgeous gowns or impressive jewels. It’s all about their radiant smiles, and their inner confidence. No matter your age, you, too, can stop traffic with just a smile.
Having confidence like that often starts when you are small and grows as you grow. Beauty is a state of mind with confidence backing it up. Every one can be beautiful as their serene confidence shines out from within. Don’t compare yourself against those you see on the silver screen – they have to be that way because it’s a job, but it’s not their way of life.

“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.” – Coco Chanel

Your beauty is a part of you, it’s something you have created from within but without confidence, you shine a little less brightly. By building on your own confidence and sense of self-worth, those actresses have nothing that can beat you!

Do you know what it takes to become a famous actress? They eat, drink and sleep their job. They must weigh 10 pounds less than any normal person would, and sometimes be even thinner than that. Not only that, but they must diet like crazy, look their best at all times, even if just going down to the local Starbucks to get coffee. Anything less will land them in the tabloids! Then when women reach 35 it gets harder and harder to get the best jobs – because there are younger women starting in the business of acting who take their jobs. In a culture obsessed with youth, strong roles for mature women are hard to find. It’s such a hard way to live. You can act like an actress, but you do not have to live their life. A wonderful actress is Pamela Anderson, who has decided that over 50 she doesn’t need to wear makeup any longer in public.

With beauty being a state of mind, start thinking that you are beautiful! Once you stop comparing yourself with others, you start feeling better about yourself.

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.” – Audrey Hepburn

Start thinking of ways you can become more of a showstopper: hold your head proudly; stand tall; smile more; love life more; become more of whatever is best in you. Find ways to build up your confidence, till one day you may be in the same room with an actress and no one sees her, they only see you. That is what confidence in who you are and what you are can do.
