This question has been evidently on the mind of many people that why successful choose to wear the same outfit every day aside from their tremendous impact on the world. Clothes tell us a lot about an individual’s personality, the way people dress up has an immense impact on culture and the direction of the society. But when we look at Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein etc. we see one thing in common. They have their own signature style of wearing the same outfit every day.
Following are some reasons why you might want to consider doing this to yourself
Save time with simplicity:
“The most complicated skill is to be simple”. Dejan Stojanovic.
Simplicity allows us to focus better without wasting our time on frivolous things. The morning routines of successful people start with bigger plans for the day so they do not notice anything much that comes in the way.
“You’ll see I wear only grey or blue suits. I’m trying to pare down decisions. I don’t want to make decisions about what I’m eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make.” Barak Obama
Good for your body and mind:
Simple and unassuming manners of life are best for everyone but they are great for our body and mind. The pick and choose option for minor things fill our mind with stress which in turn contribute to a declining health. Persistently elevated levels of stress due to such small tasks make us grind our teeth, clench our jaws and racing hearts in order to do the work quickly. So we should eliminate everything that arouses feeling of stress in our mind and focus on what is really important.
Minimalist principles about one outfit:
The “capsule wardrobe” movement is getting popular among the social conscious successful people. Financial resources are not a question for such people so they chose to wear the high quality same outfit every day because they know it will be suitable for every place.
Automate small decisions:
You can combat the decision fatigue by eliminating the decisions on smaller things. Our lives are full of decisions and by deciding on each and everything we make our mind tired and become more susceptible to making errors when it comes to making bigger decisions. Successful people do not make smaller tasks their priority; they keep their mind energized for taking decisions about bigger issues.
Owning fewer clothes will save you from expense:
“Know first, who you are; and then adorn yourself accordingly”. Epictetus.
Just consider your life if you own fewer clothes, you will have more disposable income, more time to live your life, and uncluttered and well-organized closets. But instead of enjoying the benefits of spending less on clothes, we accumulate more and more clothes every season. Many of the outfit we buy never even gets worn by us in the hope of one perfect occasion that never comes. So the biggest benefit of buying less is more income at your disposal.
Limited wardrobe make you happy:
Successful people adopt simplicity with fewer outfits because it has a powerful way of working from outside in. It makes you happier with your lifestyle and you dedicate your efforts to change the lives around you.
It makes you well-organized:
Having fewer clothes make you better organized with your wardrobe. More clothes mean more laundry, and more laundry requires more time and more energy. This does not happen with fewer clothes and you can use your energy for bigger purposes in life.
Simplicity with your clothes is not any kind of sacrifice; it is a way to discover what is most important.
