We appreciate the small appreciation of the people around us who values all our hard works. Especially beauty queens who gives their all in a pageant to gain recognition. This also helps them get noticed by big industries and companies, especially famous modelling agencies and cosmetic companies. Also when one has great talents in the field of Arts and Music.
It is very common for us to have stage frights. Facing ones fears and overcoming them is true confidence. It's alright to be frightened when we speak out in front of a large number of people, but if we continue to be on stage and perform, we'll have a lot of experience, only then will we embrace performing to people, release our true colors and of course have fun on stage. It can also help us on our jobs, inquiring for something and a lot more, you know what I mean.
3. COMMUNICATION SKILLS
Of course! How can you communicate with a person if you have poor communication skills, right? We are now in a world where good communication is needed in every corner, not to mention that all of us now are communicating with foreign people and so it is highly recommended in our society to have this skill. Especially today where this is greatly being diminished by technology and people can no longer have meaningful face to face conversation.
Everyone of us has our so-called "hidden talents" and these are discovered when we perform. The more we recognize and understand our strengths, values, likes, dislikes, beliefs and personality style, the greater fulfillment and satisfaction we'll experience from our life. And this can be discovered when working with people who understand in depth how to utilize pageantry to develop and trigger the excellence within us.
5. UNDERSTANDING OTHERS
In beauty pageants, girls will be battling against different girls with different personalities, background, and beliefs. Especially in International Pageants wherein girls meet a lot of other girls with different race and color. We get to have the knowledge in understanding them, their culture and realizing that we may be different but we can also be in harmony.
6. HANDLING STRESS, PRESSURE, AND DISAPPOINTMENT
These three don't have to be viewed as negative things, it helps us become more stronger. Being a beauty queen is not always about being beautiful, they also have way too much time on their hands but with that, it helps them manage and handle all the stress. Of course, when joining competitions, you can't always be a winner, some wins, some loses, that's life and we can be disappointed about that, but just like what I said; it is the key to help you become stronger and takes you to the next level. It all depends on how you look at it - motivator or the reason to give up. But remember, if you give up, then that's the time that you'll lose, because winners never give up.
I believe that one of the most genuine things that one can benefit in beauty pageants is knowledge and understanding people, most especially understanding yourself. It's like it brings out the things you never knew that you had it within you.
