Motivation Lies Within Us

Posted: 03/26/2013 11:00 am

Each week we like to bring you motivational stories, inspiration and findings. Anything from the flowers blooming to the new world of Motherhood, motivation lies within us all. At Career Wardrobe we help women push their fears aside, open their eyes to the opportunities around them and inspire them to be the most beautiful and confident woman they are. We strive to make these women successful and independent. Several women at Career Wardrobe have shared their stories to motivate others. A few key points we stress to make a woman successful are; Opportunity, Inspiration and Independence.

Take the opportunity. Learn something new. Travel the road less traveled. Learn from Dwanna's opportunity; "I have been laid off four times in the past six years and have been in the position where I've been called for an interview and haven't had a single thing to wear and no money to purchase new clothing. Career Wardrobe is a great program that encourages, empowers, and motivates women. When women look good, we feel good, too. And a suit gives us all the more power and confidence." Dwanna, employed for two years as a title agent.

Take inspiration from everything you see. From the beauty of mother nature to the crashing waves of the sea. Take time to smell the flowers. Breathe deep and love often. Be inspired by Valerie's words: "Career Wardrobe truly changed my life. After paying for mistakes I made, I was unemployed with a criminal record when I came to them. The women at Career Wardrobe helped me to believe in myself again. They treated me with respect and encouraged me to pursue my dreams and goals. Walking into an interview with the right outfit and the right attitude is invaluable. There is no doubt in my mind I am working today because of the tools that Career Wardrobe has given me." Valerie, employed and living independently.

Use your independence. Use your confident and independent voice to show your professional style, your professional work ethic. Use your unique mindset to set you apart from the rest. Look to Erica's words on independence; "I often say the suit I received from Career Wardrobe was my good-luck charm. It was the first suit I owned, and with it, I landed a job that would forever change my life -- the same one I have today. Not only did the staff help me find a complete outfit, they also provided helpful tips on choosing the correct attire for an interview. They helped boost my faith in myself so that I could land the job and grow into the woman I am today." Erica, employed for five years with Independence Blue Cross.
