The benefit of a smile, hidden in S.M.I.L.E.
“We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do” – Mother Teresa
Indeed, we all know, see and feel the power of a smile. I wonder, then, why we don't see more smiles in the streets, in our offices or at events where there are many people.
Imagine everyone with a smile; it's not that difficult.
Anyway the benefits of a smile are multiple. We have bundled them together under a great acronym: S.M.I.L.E.
S : Strength. A smile gives you the strength to move on, to turn a page. It has the strength to be contagious. It has the strength to display confidence.
M : Meaningful. A genuine smile is reflected on your face and in your eyes. It shows appreciation, happiness, satisfaction or gratitude.
I: Inspiring. A smile inspires others to smile and to feel your positive vibes. It inspires others to repeat what was good or to continue the actions that initially triggered the smile.
L : Leadership. A smile sets an example to be followed, an essential character trait of a charismatic leader.
E : Engaging. People with a smile display a personality which is engaging. They appear more attractive and satisfied.
There are so many reasons to smile more every day.
Yoko Ono (John Lennon’s widow) said: Smile in a mirror. Do that every morning and you’ll start see a big difference in your life!
Enjoy your day!
