“The expression one wears on one’s face is far more important than the clothes one wears on one’s back.” – Dale Carnegie
Hello Lovely One!
If you’re looking for…
The next big competitive advantage for your life and career.
A great way to differentiate yourself from the competition.
A simple strategy for reducing stress and increasing joy.
Something that adds massive value to every interaction.
One thing you can do to attract people and opportunity.
An immediate way to build trust, rapport and likability.
Here it is…
Your smile is proof that the best things in life are free, empowering and life-changing.
Not only is your smile the best accessory you can wear…it’s the strongest emotional trigger you have for making a good first and lasting impression.
Yet for too many, it’s the weakest part of their game.
Let’s get something straight…
Your smile is best looked at as a super power.
Because an infectious smile illuminates…it’s contagious, and you get to decide what that means and how you are going to use or abuse (through neglect of its execution) this super power.
It does not matter if you’re a student, a doctor, a CEO, a mom, a dad, a kid, a janitor, a florist, a designer, or a fighter pilot; your smile is a super power which you can use to conquer the world with.
A smile is a force multiplier in that it is the fastest way to demonstrate friendliness, warmth, trust and likeability.
To be conscious of the effect of a scowl or a smile is to be socially aware…and increasing your awareness is the purpose of this message.
“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” —Thich Nhat Hanh
Be mindful that regardless of whether you manage a family or a business….you cannot simply instruct a person to smile and demonstrate enthusiasm any more than you can instruct them to give birth to a redheaded child.
The person must first be inspired.
Inspiration through proper modeling is what you give them.
Enthusiasm in the form of a smile and joyful energy is what they give you and share with the world.
People inhale inspiration and exhale enthusiasm.
They cannot give you enthusiasm until you give them inspiration.
Is your smile and enthusiasm contagious or is it contained?
Are you modeling the behavior you want repeated and inspiring those around you?
Remember…behavior never lies.
There’s no better way to say hello than through a big, beautiful smile…it’s the exclamation mark at the beginning and end of every encounter…and it makes a significant deposit into everyone’s emotional bank account.
A smile is the sign of a pro…a powerful demonstration of excellence, and in the words from the famous Broadway show Annie…“you’re never fully dressed without a smile.”
