Why Self-Esteem Is Important for a Model
We talk about how modeling can help to boost one's self-esteem and at the same time what you can do to come out of the shell of insecurity and fear.
When you Start Getting Jobs
Everything seems like a scam and an evil plot against you, until your modeling agency helps you to start acquiring jobs. Your confidence skyrockets when the jobs are acquired with credible clients and even more so when they are jobs that suit your interests and likes. Modeling is an incredibly powerful form of work that can create confidence in your look and skin that few other jobs or careers can.
Beyond getting paid for your work, you also get your work published and advertised through publications, and mass media channels such as Television on Print advertisements. This means you gather acknowledgments and you thus feeling good in your skin as well.
Modeling Can Play Tricks with your Mind
When you see other models around you, you may start to wonder, am I supposed to be that thin? Should I have literally zero body fat in order to be considered a model? Well if you were supposed to be as thin as a stick your modeling agency wouldn't have accepted you for their work in the first place. If they do want you to change your weight in a drastic manner all you have to do is simply say no and find another modeling agency. Do not take advice from your imagination, or from extreme people. Be in a lean and fit body and only work in jobs that suit your natural size and body. That will give you the utmost career and mental satisfaction you need.
Exercise Right, Sleep Right, Eat Right, and Live Right
Drop the pills and ills. What you need is natural and organic methods to keep your beauty and health in check. Don't fall prey to consumerist schemes and certainly never resort to extreme measures such as starving yourself. Thin does not equal beautiful. You must be in your natural body size that suits you and your look, and most of the times that is obtained simply by regular exercise and eating proper food and avoiding fast and fried food.
Modeling agencies these days are interested in a vibrant personality and a healthy look that is marketable, not a pale looking stick figure. Do away with misconceptions and prioritize your health above anything else!
Modeling is thus a double-edged sword that cans be employed to your benefit or destruction. Adopt the right mentality and you will shine, failing to do so can make it a job that kills your self-esteem. Else you're on Victoria's Secret, your aim should first to look good in your god-given body, and progress in your looks slowly and steadily with due respect to your physical and mental health.
