5 Reasons Your Smile is Your Most Powerful Social Asset
There is an old song that says that you are never fully dressed without a smile. It is an interesting concept and one that invites a lot of thinking. After all, no one wants to go out in public only half dressed, do they? The right smile can convey a lot of messages to the people that you meet. The wrong smile can give people the wrong impression about you. Whether you are meeting someone at a social event, meeting potential employers at a job fair or just going about your day, the way that you smile could be the difference between success and failure.
Shows Your Personality
An open smile can show that you are an approachable person with high charisma and charm. A tight smile may indicate that you can be friendly but only under the right circumstances.
Set Others at Ease
You ever feel nervous until someone gives you a warm smile, and then suddenly you relax? Your smile has that same kind of power. Make sure that you are smiling at people who look ill at ease so that they can relax a little bit.
You have Confidence in Yourself
Being able to smile especially in a group of strangers can be a sign that you are at ease with yourself and that you are a confident, powerful person.
Makes Other People Take Notice of You
In a room full of people, all vying for attention in one way or another it can be hard to stand out. However, a bright and engaging smile can give you just the boost that you need. Others will notice, and suddenly you are the center of attention.
Can Uplift Your own Spirits
If you are walking around with a smile on your face, you may feel happier. If you are feeling glum or angry and you force yourself to smile you may feel silly for a while but eventually the smile will work its magic, and you are actually and truly feeling happy once again.
Every smile that you send out to the universe will come back to you in a variety of ways from small things like a smile back to bigger things like making new friends or getting a new job because you were the person that wowed them with your bright smile and positive attitude.
