Most of us recognize that real change comes from within ourselves. Real change leading to fulfillment requires hard work, like introspection and redefining what we want.
Sometimes we want more immediate change. I cannot change what dissatisfies me with my career and life overnight, but I can make other changes. A new lipstick may not make me thinner, smarter, or happier, but it can signal to the world that I am ready for change.
So do not disregard the power of small tweaks to one’s look. It may signal the really deep changes that are coming.
