the latest popular P90X diet. One gentleman asked me why I have goodies yet do not partake; I told him it was part of my diet
plan. He was perplexed - persistent resistance to temptation isn't my goal! I joked that by making everyone else around me gain weight, I look slimmer, with no change in my routine.
While funny in this case, our surroundings help dictate how we are perceived. This is a mix in how we chose to surround ourselves, as well as how we portray ourselves in each situation. A tall 300-lbs man looks of average weight amongst sumo wrestlers. A healthy, trim woman looks heavyset against runway models. Similarly, a cultural faux pax at a business dinner function with your partner company's
CEO likely has far very different repercussions than a dinner in your home. Our behavior reflects not only our ourselves, but our peers, subordinates, family, friends. Intentions mean little as we are judged by others' perceptions.
Stop by for a piece of candy and chat for a moment. I'd love for you to join in my diet plan. We may have a lively talk, too.
