Have you ever noticed how the word ďsmileĒ assumes the
position of a smile on your face right after it has been
The same is true with a grin or a grouch.
Much of the
words in the English language or perhaps in other languages of
the world assume the facial expressions of the person
pronouncing them. Perhaps this is how words came into existence.
What kind of difference can a smile make? In spite of its
simplicity and spontaneity, a smile can make all the difference.
It creates an atmosphere.
Admittedly, a frown can
likewise create an atmosphere. The question now is this: ďWhich
is more preferable?Ē An atmosphere of dissent brought about by
frowning can bring conflict and unfriendliness, while a smile
can create unity and camaraderie.
A smile is contagious.
When you project a smile, the other person canít help but smile
back at you. Throw a smile to a baby, and thereís a big chance
the baby will smile back at you.
Because of your smile, the
baby starts to be playful at you even if you are a stranger to
him. When a baby starts to be playful, you just canít resist
playing with him. Then he begins to laugh and giggle. You make
the baby happy; you make yourself happy too. And to think all
these started with a simple smile. If all these take place in a
doctorís office, chances are that you will forget why you are
there in the first place. A smile can erase the pain, especially
emotional and psychological pain.
If you want to make a
good impression, smiling is your best option. You can sport all
those expensive things on your body. You may be rich and famous.
But if you sport a sour face, youíll get the same treatment in
return, as sour as vinegar.
A smile is worth more than
words. A smile is a universal language expressed in the form of
a gesture that greets and welcomes other people. When someone
smiles at you, especially at a time you least expect it, you
will get overwhelmed and you will return the favor. This is best
exemplified during Christmas time.
Of course, Christmas
is the time and season of smiles. But Christmas is also the time
you get too busy attending to parties and shopping that you get
so tired you feel you canít smile anymore. However, when you
come across somebody who smiles at you despite your weariness,
you can't help but smile back.
Try walking into a shop
where a frown from the owner awaits you. Before you know it, you
are heading back to the door where you came from. Itís as if
your legs have a mind of their own. This is the reason why it is
important that your sales people (if you are in the sales
business) wear smiles on their faces all the time. This is the
best way to attract more customers. Make smiling the trademark
of your business. Show it in your company logo and watch your
business grow, just like all the other businesses using it.
A smile has no monetary value yet it is priceless. No amount of
money can buy you one. Itís given away for free. You neither
have to beg, steal, or borrow it. A smile comes naturally from
the heart, resulting to harmony at home and prosperity for
business. A smile binds and maintains friendship. Without
smiles, any friendship is unimaginable.
ďBut how can you
smile when you are overwhelmed with problems of the heart,
health, finances, and peace of mind?Ē Yes, itís difficult; but
would sulking help? Will a frown take away the pain and rid the
problems that keep pushing you down to more problems, illness,
poverty, and a confused mind? The answer is obvious. Without a
shadow of a doubt, a smile will clear the clouds and bring in
sunshine to your life.
A smile is like a jewel worn on the face. It is the gateway
to your personality. Wear a smile every minute and hour of the
day, and you wonít need anything else.
