The image of what you wear by your clothing affects how you feel about yourself and your value. The same goes for what you speak. Every word you say is a brushstroke to someone observing and that is what they see. It is also a projection of what you think you are.
By putting more time into conserving your words and knowing how valuable you are and realizing what you want to say and your purpose you can greatly affect your self-image. When your life is not a springboard, and events are running away from yourself, then it is a manifestation of what you seek to accomplish and identify with.
Just as tattered clothes reflect a poor self-image, wearing tattered emblems of your negative attitude degenerates your identity. Great changes in your life begin by being coherent in these areas and if you want something, speak it.
