Uncorrected , they will continue to drive away associates and customers. A well-pitched voice and good speech habits are assets to any man. Fundamental to every elements of physical appearance is a man’s state of health. o Good healthy radiates in his eyes, his voice, and his muscular movements. o Conversely, a lack of muscular tone and vitality, even though short of ill health, conveys a subtle air of languor or perhaps an ill-concealed irritability to those forming impressions of what we are like. o Take care of your health if you want an attractive personality.
