I wince every time
I read a study saying
that beautiful people are more successful.
That, I believe, is bullshit.
Confident people are more successful
and while beautiful people are more likely
to be confident,
the two do not always equate.
Yesterday, I watched a documentary
When I think of Cleopatra,
I think of a beautiful seductress,
a woman who captivated powerful men
such as Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.
The thing is…
She wasn’t beautiful.
Research shows that she was quite homely.
What she had though
loads and loads of confidence.
Confidence is sexy.
People, men included, want to be around
If people want to be around you,
they will also help you become successful.
In Cleopatra’s case,
they helped her win back
the leadership of a country.
As I often tell my girl friends,
it isn’t how you look FOR a man
It is how you look AT a man.
