Chapter 47


A smile is the light in your window that tells others
that there is a caring, sharing person inside.

Denis Waitley

In physiology, a smile is a facial expression formed by flexing muscles most notably near both ends of the mouth, and around the eyes.

You smiles most often due to happiness, but many studies indicate that smiling is an innate reaction children blind from birth or even human foetuses smile.

Studies show that smiling is a normal reaction to certain stimuli and reaches out across cultures, religions, nationalities and castes and races.

A study by Professor Peter Totterdell at the University of Sheffield in England with groups of athletes, found that when their team mates were smiling, in a good mood and looked happy it upped their own mood and made them play better. So the more one smiles the more happiness one spreads around.

Smiling is indeed infectious.

So you should smile often. Its good for you and others. People are more comfortable with a smiling person and are more willing to communicate with and share and be more open with. Salespersons who smiled often, were found to be more successful as they were though to be more trustworthy.

Smiling is great for

yourself and others
