12 Things Only Women Who Don’t Put on Makeup All the Time Understand

12 Things Only Women Who Don’t Put on Makeup All the Time Understand

We live at a time when the media celebrate mere external beauty and popularity. To keep up with the trends of fashion and constant societal demands, people try to alter and tailor their lives by hiding what is underneath and exposing people to another false image – one that is masked with makeup. But where are your self-confidence, kindness, and goodness? Here are some things people who do not wear makeup understand.

1. They appreciate themselves for who they are

They are realistic and true to themselves. When they are with people, they don’t have to be worried that they are being stared at for looking like a comic heroine. They can relax and enjoy being appreciated for their natural selves.

2. They can save time

It takes time to apply make-up and try to look out of the ordinary. All that time can be spent doing something worthwhile, perhaps being punctual and reading an exciting book.

3. They don’t need to satisfy anyone

They understand that people’s tastes differ. They don’t try to adjust their standards to meet these tastes and look cheap. Rather, they validate their self-worth by looking pleasant and appealing primarily to themselves.

4. They can save money

Let’s be realistic with ourselves. Beauty products cost money, and most of the time there is no guarantee of a return on investment for the amount you put into it. People who do not use makeup can save money and time doing and trying to pursue other worthy endeavors.

5. They become more appealing in other ways

At face value, perhaps, people will be attracted to you for your appearance. But this is never lasting. What is sustaining are such immaculate qualities like kindness, warmth, and affection. These amazing qualities do not need to be beautified by makeup, but by age and by appreciation of not only yourself, but also the world around you.

6. They can build sustaining relationships

People who do not wear makeup can be who they are and command attention. Whoever is attracted to them is concerned about what is underneath their skin and is comfortable with their total appearance. These kinds of relationships are built to last, since they are not built upon a selfish foundation.

7. They have self-confidence

They do appreciate what they have in their bodies and their inner selves. They do not lack or try to hide flaws or inferiority. They have dealt with that already and are confident of what they showcase to the world.

8. They can deal with life’s changes

Whether we like it or not, we will all be victims of time and age. People who don’t wear makeup refuse to run from this fact. Rather, they can deal with life’s changes and instabilities.

9. They define their own happiness

They know what happiness means. They can relate to the simplicity and amazing details of life rather than the sophistication and luxury that makeup offers. They don’t have to cover anything, especially their glad smile.

10. They do not worry about skin damage

They don’t have to fear or worry about the highly allergenic and harmful ingredients that are contained in many makeup products.

11. They do not need to follow the pack

They think independently. They do not need to be victims of what the media propagates, particularly, that you need makeup products to be complete. They are already complete and comfortable with who they are.

12. They attract people to know more about their thoughts

Because they have focused on building other aspects of their lives rather than just their facial appearances, other people are more interested in what they have to offer. They are not stared at, but listened to for their inner power and inner beauty.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
