Motivation get you started; good habits keep you going. – Dan Peña
Acquiring good habits and having a routine will help you to build up and develop a personal image. Furthermore, projecting a powerful personal image will help you to progress and build relationships of the highest quality.
Your success depends on developing good habits that help you to improve your image.
Here are the three top habits that you should develop:
An attractive appearance is more trustworthy, and people tend to treat you based on how they perceive you. Looking clean, wearing neat and occasion appropriate attire is a way to show you take care of yourself, you care the way you show off in public, you show respect to people around you, and most of all you respect yourself.

And don’t forget the saying: “Dress how you want to be addressed.”
You are what you do! Your everyday actions reveal who you are, and often, they say more than your words.

Who we associate with and with whom we spend our time says more about us than we realize.
Surround yourself with people who are worthy of admiration, you look up to, and you want to be like them.
Choose your friends and network wisely and devote your time to people who motivate you and who have a positive and constructive outlook on life.
Motivational speaker Jim Rohn very well said: “We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.”
