It’s nice to be out somewhere like a grocery store or the mall and someone flashes me an amazing smile. It has such a fantastic effect on me. My reaction to the smile is interesting as well; depending on who gave it to me. Sometimes I’ll give the smile right back. Sometimes I’ll include a mouthed “Hi, how are you?” Sometimes I’ll doubt that that smile was directed at me and look behind me—searching for who the lucky recipient of the smile is.  Either reaction we shouldn’t worry about smiling back. It has to be a quick reaction. We should remember to smile more.

Smiling does a few things:

  1. Affects our Sexiness A smile is a unique way of passing on powerful, positive energy to those people you encounter. You don’t even have to be super attractive or of model quality to do this. Most people when they smile for that one moment have bonus levels of attractiveness.
  2. Affects our Success A smile is associated with a person who smiles. Your smile will attract people to you like a magnet. People at your meetings will see confidence and be more attentive to what you have to say. Try it!
  3. Affects our Mood If you are down, frustrated or angry… try smiling. It’ll change your mood in a hurry. You’re in Control!
  4. Affects our Body Need drugs? Smiling releases endorphins. You know those natural drugs our body produces that make us feel good. It also lowers blood pressure and creates an unconscious calm.
  5. Affects our Surroundings It’s contagious. Pass the smile on. It starts with you and will probably change lives for that day—or at least change a few attitudes. People will smile at each other with your good example.

I drive a convertible and have tremendous opportunity to let the world see me smile. I want it known that I am enjoying being in the moment. I’m hoping I pass on that great energy to everyone. This is in contrast with a few other people, maybe driving convertibles, who ignore the world. Worse they have a twisted scowl on their face. This is injecting negative energy into the air. We can’t have that.

It doesn’t cost anything extra to smile. It pays back tremendously because it lifts people up.

You have to smile. Smile a lot. It may take practice. But Oh the benefits!
