The Power of a Genuine Smile


 

 

Business magnate Charles Schwabb, who decades ago amassed a fortune worth more than $400M, attributed his success mainly to his smile. While I’m sure there was more to him than his smile, the fact that someone of that magnitude would consider a smile that important speaks volumes of what your smile means to the release of your vision…

A smile communicates warmth, trust, good will, and so much more that it can often create opportunities to connect with people who will become a vital part of your journey. Don’t just smile with your mouth… though some people say smile with your eyes, I say smile with your whole body. Most communication is no-verbal, and since people really can’t see your heart, your smile gives you a chance to express your good will, openness, and friendliness. Your most powerful position in business is that of safe strength. People want to know you can get the job done, so to speak, but they also want to know that you are ‘safe.’ While a smile doesn’t tell your whole story, it can position you to be able to tell it yourself!

Let your smile be your chance to communicate the very best of you to the world around you, and watch your journey’s direction change for the better.
