Cowboy Boot Celebs

There was a time when cowboy boots were the footwear of choice for linedancers, rodeo riders and country musicians. These days, the cowboy boot has experienced a new lease of life. It takes a certain personality to wear cowboy boots. Some are wary of the showiness, worried that they might draw undue attention to themselves. For others, this is exactly the point!

The truth is, cowboy boots can also be incredibly comfortable, offering a confident attitude and easy style. Fashionistas and celebrities can now be seen donning these high, and sometimes elaborate, leather boots. Here are a few cowboy boot wearing celebs who have helped to raise the profile of this uniquely American footwear.

Madonna – The popularity of cowboy boots seemed to increase dramatically after 2000. It might be coincidence, but this was after Madonna released her album ‘Music’. Videos of singles from the album featured the singer in full cowboy chic, from glamorous country diva to western farm hand. Seemingly overnight the sales of cowboy boots soared. Funnily enough, check shirts have been in vogue ever since too.

Tom Ford – Tom Ford has a great knack for being ahead of the game when it comes to fashion; well, it’s his job! The designer has always had a penchant for the cowboy boot, probably because of his roots. Born in Austin, Texas, Ford still has ties with the western state, moving to Santa Fe when he was 11. While being an internationally renowned designer, Ford’s roots are clearly very important to him, and the cowboy boots are a part of that.

Renee Zellweger – Like Tom Ford, Renee Zellweger’s background is undoubtedly an influence on her choice of footwear. Also born in Texas, in a town called Katy, enthusiastically involved in youth activities including cheerleading, gymnastics and drama. The appeal of Renee Zellweger has always been her hometown authenticity: you can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t take Texas out of the girl!

Reese Witherspoon – Self confessed country music fan Reece Witherspoon is also a big fan of cowboy boots. Witherspoon began to explore her Louisiana roots working on the film Walk The Line, the biopic about country star Johnny Cash. Playing the singer’s wife, June Carter Cash, the actress immersed herself in the era and the country genre. This stayed with Witherspoon so much that at her recent wedding to agent Tim Toth, the DJ at the reception had to play a set of country songs. When she had enough of her uncomfortable shoes, she spent the rest of the evening in her cowboy boots!

Channel Your Fears to Drive Your Success

Fear is one of the most primal emotions that man faces. When you are faced with the object of your fear, the immediate visceral response is fight or flight. However, in order to truly become successful in life one must embrace fear and use it to channel the drive to succeed.

To understand how to embrace fear and transform it into a positive force in your life, we need to look at fear in its two stages. When people think of fear and being afraid, they think of temporary paralysis, immediate perspiration, increased heart rate and a knot in our stomach. However, what is curious is that this is most often a fact of feeling, rather than being caused by the fearful object itself. So, for instance, if one is afraid of spiders, the reaction is caused only be how we imagine or perceive the spiders; rather than whether or not the spider is fearful itself.

Why we attempt to look at fear this way is because understanding the double action of fear makes it far easier to conquer what we are most afraid of. To take an example, if you look at your reaction to spiders (say) from a third person, removed point of view you will sooner than later realize that it is just a feeling much like anything else. Looking at the very visceral and real reaction to objects as a mere feeling is the first step towards conquering it. This is crucial in turning fear into a conquered ally rather than a fearful adversary. The negative outcome that is produced by the objects are turned into a more positive force since we are now viewing fear as something that can be overcome.

For someone who works in a stressed out environment, this is important because it helps you appreciate that fear is unreal. So when you are faced with deadlines, last minute decisions, goals, commitments and high-pressure expectations; understanding that the anxiety is temporary and only about as normal as anger, happiness or sorrow is the recipe for success. Fear can be our inspiration and driving force simply because it presents the potential to stimulate work. When faced with deadlines around the corner, it is a common observation that the work volume increases tremendously. This same fear, however, can be overcome and looked at as a positive stimulator of inspiration.

Focusing on the goals rather than the fear is a perfect way to transform anxiety into something positive. Rather than imagining situations where your job is on the line for a particular assignment, it is more productive to think of the rewards that await you at the end of completion. Furthermore, looking at fear and dreams as by-products of your imagination might probably yield better results than looking at them as something bigger than yourself. As mentioned above, fear is meant to be an instigator of a ‘flight or fight’ response. Using this to propel reaction and shifting goals to the future instead of the past is the best way to use fear as motivation. Looking ahead where fear brings results will not only change the mindset for the better, but will also yield immediate, positive results.
