Smile and they will come
I was watching people at work and at the end of the day I confirmed what is a well-known knowledge. This well-known knowledge is forgotten and maybe sometimes ignored.
Let me do a quick introduction before I tell you what it is.
There are 3 kind of people in your life:
- People that you like or are drawn to
- People that you do not like or barely tolerate
- People that you do not remember/notice or, so called, invisible people
There is only one thing in common or different about these people.
When you meet somebody, it takes you only a few seconds either to like them on not like them or not care for them.
Most of the time it is their personality. I do not mean their values or beliefs or convictions. They do not even need to talk.
I am talking about smiling and having a positive presence about them. The more you smile, the more open you are, the more relaxed is your non-verbal communication.
You feel attracted to positive, smiling people and you tend to avoid angry, scowling or tensed up people.
All it takes is some sense of humor and a genuine smile. No kidding. Start smiling. Find something funny in your head and start smiling.
Once you start smiling, you will infect other people and they will come back for more.
