A man without a smiling face must not open a shop. – Chinese Sayings
We shouldn’t set foot outside our house if we’re not smiling! We shouldn’t be talking to another soul if we’re not smiling! Heck we shouldn’t be thinking about anything if we’re not able to smile within! How can we be motivated to do anything if we’re not happy and smiling?
5th Dale Carnegie Principle: Smile!
From the book How To Win Friends And Influence People:
The Value of a smile at Christmas
It cost nothing, but creates much.
It enriches those who receive, without impoverishing those who give.
It happens in a flash and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None are so rich they can get along without it, and none so poor but are richer for its benefits.
It creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in a business, and is the countersign of friends.
It is rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and nature’s best antidote for trouble
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen for it is something that is no earthly good to anybody till it is given away.
And if in the last minute rush of Christmas buying some of our salespeople should be too tired to give you a smile, may we ask you to leave one of yours?
For nobody needs a smile so much as those who have none left to give!!
