Dressing the Part

Have you heard that if you are interviewing that you should "dress the part"? I was taught that growing up, and it stuck with me. I will always teach my kids the same too. Looking professional versus looking unkempt is so important, especially at a time when jobs are so hard to come by. Wouldn't you agree?

I think the same applies to how we present ourselves to others in our daily life too. For young women it's dressing modestly, and for young men it's dressing like a man. While some of you may think that is old school, how we dress sends a strong message.

That is why I wanted to share with you some thoughts on how you can always share a positive message with others about what you believe  and why.

Dress with Courage 

Chances are if you are reading this blog that you have been looking over our website and reading more about what we do and why with Courageous Life. This organization has been a vision for quite some time, and it has finally come to fruition. 

I knew that one of the things I wanted to do with this once it was started was to promote the organization and the message with products so that all who are a part of what we are doing would spread the word through apparel and more. Even if you didn't wear it, what if your kids did? What about your spouse? Think about the hope that is much needed in this world today. 

Even if we only made a difference in our own country, it would  be well worth it to wear  a message of hope and courage no matter where we go, and no matter where we shop. If you have ever worn a graphic t-shirt then you know what I mean. Kids love them, so why not share something that spreads hope rather than the name of a rock band.

Think about this decal on your car could be a conversation piece? What if you are out grabbing a cup of coffee and someone stops you to ask you about your t-shirt? Wouldn't you say it's worth a shot? 

If you read the blog post prior to this, you read the story about the man that was struggling with his prayer life, and seeing the decal of the man "Making war on the floor", got to him. You never know who will see you, and how it will affect them. 

Take a look at each one of these t-shirts. Like what you see? Think of how you can take "rage and transform it into courage". Nice, right? It's all about the message we are sending, and if we send the right one, we live the right one on a daily basis. 

If you want to wear your courage, and share the message of hope with others, then live courageously, and let us know what you want to order. Don't see something you think would be great? Let us know that too! 

No matter what you decide at the moment, just decide to live courageously
