The suit is the single most important garment worn by men; not only because it is the most expensive and requires the greatest amount of time for selection and fitting, but because it is the garment on which most people judge the wearer’s status, character and abilities.
And since it covers the upper torso, which is the focal point of most people with whom we communicate, it is the central power garment, the one garment that establishes our position as inferior, equal or superior in any in-person business situation. In this case the equality policy just does not work. You are wearing a suit or you do not! And if you are against a person who is wearing a suit and you do not, guess who will win the case, the sale, the woman? (OK just kidding for the last one).
Suits are positive authority symbols, worn by the upper middle class, the people who make important decisions in our society. Parliament, White House, Elysee Palace…We are much more likely to believe, respect and obey the man who wears a suit than the man who does not. Men who do not wear suit may have important functions in our society, but we do not normally accord them such in our minds. In any level of society, suits are associated with authority, with position, with power.
In our next post, we will look at this powerful symbol and how it translates for the ladies and how to wear it to command feminine power!

Another excerpt from my Emmet Fox reading this week. Enjoy!!
“Why not organize the business of living in a big way? Why creep along, as some people do, from one tiny steppingstone to another, instead of striding out boldly? Why be content with poor health, uninteresting work, or restricted conditions, when many other people have already risen above these things? There is a way out of limitation that never fails. It is simple. It calls for no formalities. It requires no money. It is obvious enough when you realize it, but it is strange how many people nevertheless overlook it.
It is this, take God for your partner. If you will really make God your business partner in every department of your life, you will be amazed at the quick and striking results that you will obtain. I have said that this partnership will cost no money, but I did not say it would not cost anything. As a matter of fact it will cost you a great deal, because the price will be your whole life—but it will be worth it.
Of course, if you want God to be your partner, He will have to be the Senior Partner, and you will have to include Him in every corner and every phase of your life. If you are prepared to do this, the result will not be in doubt. Most people would be thrilled to be able to go into partnership with some great industrial or financial magnate; they would feel that their future was assured. But here is a partnership with Infinite Wisdom and Infinite Power awaiting you. Take God for your partner.”
As for me, God is the only shareholder and He has 100% because I know what is His is mine for the taking!!!!
Good morning, this is an excerpt from a book I am reading at the moment and I wanted to share this with you all. I hope you be inspired to brake free and rise and shine.
“To me the butterfly teaches the most wonderful and the most important lesson that we human beings ever have to learn. You all know his story. He is a beautiful butterfly now, but he was not always a butterfly. No, indeed. He began life, and he lived what seemed to him a very, very long time, as a worm—and not a very important kind of worm either—what we call the humble caterpillar. Now the life of a caterpillar is a sadly restricted one, in fact, it could be taken as the very type and symbol of restriction. He lives on a green leaf in the forest, and that is about all he knows. Then one day something happens. The little caterpillar finds certain strange stirrings going on within himself. The old green leaf, for some reason, no longer seems sufficient. He begins to feel dissatisfied. He becomes moody and discontented, but—and this is the vital point—it is a divine discontent. He does not just grumble and complain to the other caterpillars, saying “nature is all wrong.” “I hate this life.” “I can never be anything but a worm.” “I wish that I had never been born.” No, he is discontented, but it is a divine discontent. He feels the need for a bigger, finer, and more interesting life. His instinct tells him that where there is true desire there must be fulfillment because “where there’s a will, there’s a way.” And so the wonderful thing happens. Gradually the worm disappears, and the butterfly emerges, beautiful, graceful, now endowed with wings—and instead of crawling about on a restricted leaf, he soars right above the trees, right above the forest itself—free, unrestricted, free to go where he likes, and see the world, and bask in the sun, and, in fact, be his own True Self—the free and wonderful thing that God intended him to be.”
