Do you recall the times when you were outside in a a place traveling and strangers smile at you, brightening up your day, how did you feel ? How powerful was the Smile ? Was it sensational ? If you go out on a date, when the other party smiles at you (especially ladies with the sweetest and biggest smile and beautiful faces), did you feel the sensation too and returned the big smile too ?
It takes more muscle to frown than to let your face give the smile away. A smile can do wonders in your life, work or sales, it can help to break down barriers too and make your workflow and life easier. A smile can be seen on your face and also across the voice, people can see and feel the power, warmth and sensation of a genuine smile. This is crucial to help problems from appearing later in time.
When you listen to the radio or songs on your media player, can you feel the smile in the voice and songs ? Do you feel wonderful and happy ? Did it bring out a big smile in you ? In a business context, a sincere, warm, genuine and sensational smile at the right place and right time can work miracles for you, to secure the business contract or partnership.
