The Power of a Smile

The power of a smile is real.

Here is a sage advice form Elbert Hubbard: “ Whenever you go out, draw the chin in, carry the crown of the head high, and fill the longs to the utmost. Drink the sunshine; greet your friends with a smile and put soul into every handshake. Do not fear being misunderstood and so not waste a minute thinking about your enemies. Try to fix firmly in your mind what you would like to be; and then without veering off direction you will move straight to the goal. Keep your mind on the great and splendid things you'd like to do, and then the days go gliding away , you will find yours unconsciously seizing opportunities that are required to the fulfillment of your desire, picture in your mind the able, earnest, useful person you desire to be, and the thought you hold is transforming you into that particular individual. Though is supreme. Preserve a right mental attitude of courage, frankness, and good cheer. To think rightly is to create. All things come through desires and every sincere payer is answered. We become like whom on which our heart are fixed. "

Here is a Chinese proverb: “ a man without a smiling face must not open a shop”

Your smile is the messenger of your good will. Your smile brightens the lives of all who see it. To someone who has seen dozen of people frown, your smile is like the sun breaking through the clouds. especially when that someone is under pressure from his bosses, his customers, his teachers or parents or children, a smile can help him realize that all is not hopeless, that there is joy in the world.

Keep in mind to smile your heart out, when you drive, when you answer the phone, when you talk to cashiers. ...And let your smile bring a little bit of a miracle in their lives.
