The Power of Make-Up

Good Morning and welcome to a New Week.

As we celebrate women internationally, I cannot but share a lesson that I have learnt from the art of Make-Up. This lesson determines Career Success or Failure. In fact, it determines Business Success or Failure.

Now, for most people, Make-Up is the art of covering up a person’s flaws to make them look beautiful BUT in reality, Make-Up is the art of enhancing a person’s uniqueness because they are already beautiful.

Most people spend their lifetime covering their deficiencies rather than maximizing their efficiencies. They are preoccupied with addressing dissatisfaction with their appearance rather than being occupied with leveraging their uniqueness.

Make-Up could mean making a person up (assuming they are down) BUT it could also mean identifying what makes up a person- their uniqueness (their personality, cognitive abilities, interests, passion etc)

Success in life is more guaranteed when a person identifies their Make Up and uses it to add value to others around them. Every ‘Success’ we celebrate today is simply a person who is maximizing their Make Up.

So, let me ask you? Are you pre-occupied with ‘making-up’ or leveraging your ‘Make Up’?

As we begin this week, remember you were Made Up as a Solution to your world. Make sure your Career & Business enable you to optimize your Make Up; your Success will be inevitable!

Women, Happy International Women’s Day!

Do enjoy your week.

  1. The whole essence of makeup has been bastardized partly in this time annd largely in the African society. The average woman feels makeup is meant to MAKE HER UP and so her esteem is largely dependent on it. Some use it to create a psuedo personality they want others to associate with and inn the process mutilate their true personality gradually. Me thinks, makeup IS NOT meant to make you beautiful it is meant to COMPLIMENT your beauty, to make obvious an inherent beauty. At the end of the day, it last but just some coupla hours?? #team give value to your inherent beauty by investing in your mind so @ the end of the day, make up will serve as a spice to enhance the made up you. (no pun intended). My first time here.. cool blog. I’ll be back.

  2. ‘Maximizing Ones efficiency and identifying what makes you a person’ WOW, I love this.
    Thanks so much sir for this post.
