Everyone and everything deserves a second chance

Nobody wants to miss out on making a great opening impression as it can often be the decisive factor in determining whether there will be a second chance or not.

If the first impression is not good, it can be a deal-breaker. A positive first impression, on the other hand, can help forge long-term associations.

The first impression is deemed critical. No matter how many times you meet people, they usually always associate you with the first impression you made on them.

As such, everyone attempts to make a good first impression. Therein lies the problem.

Look beyond the fake façade and you get to see the real picture. Then comes the realization that a first impression should never be the last. It is a long-term impression that matters in the final analysis.
