June 15th is the day we observe National Smile Power Day. This is a day for everyone to share the power of the smile.
From the good morning greeting and the first “How may I help you?” present yourself with a smile. No matter whether you are employed, job seeking, retired or looking for new horizons starting the day with a smile is certainly more empowering than a pout or grump. Starting with a smile first is easier than trying to get there later in the day.
When you smile at someone, you are telling them that they are valued and worth the smile that you just gave them. Smiles are moral boosters and confidence builders.
Research has proven that smiling really does increase attractiveness and likability between humans. Smiling creates a greater trust and increased interpersonal cooperation. Smiling at someone can help them to relax and relieve their stress while at the same time, it will make you feel right. Smiling (even if you do not feel like it) will lift your mood and can make you a happier person. — HT: Click Here
Some industries seem to thrive on the importance of a smile. For example, dentists pay good money every month to advertise on billboards, sides of buses, and many other forms of media. They do this because people are often self-conscious about their looks and this includes their teeth or their smile.
Other professions must maintain a certain dignity without overdoing the importance of a genuine smile and a firm handshake. For almost eight years, I worked in various aspects of the funeral and cemetery industry. As a funeral director, I wanted to make sure that we welcomed the families we served day and night. However, we found that a genuine smile could make all the difference when dealing with people on one of the most difficult days of their life.
As a realtor, I am still in a profession that allows me to serve others. Whether you are a first-time home buyer, or one with plenty of experience, my chosen area of expertise is designed to help you through what many consider to be one of the most stressful you can go through – the selling or buying of a home.
From the first interaction to the on-going relationship I develop with my clients, it all starts with a smile. Experts say that you can hear a smile over the phone, especially when it is genuine.
Today is National Smile Power Day. Go out today and practice your smile. A worker at the mall, the restaurant, a family member, a friend, or even a co-worker may need a smile from you to help brighten their day. We never know what is going on in another person’s mind, so smile and give them the power to smile back.
“Smiles” is the longest word in the world, because there is a “mile” between the first and last letter!
Smiling the Day Away,
