When you smile, the world smiles back to you even bigger and brighter. I love the following video for that very reason.
There are so many benefits to a big, genuine, huge, fat smile – we ought to do it much more. Here are some of the benefits I have read about over the years:
- Smiling relieves stress
- Makes you happier and improves mental health
- Decreases heart rate and blood pressure
- People that smile are more successful
- It makes you look younger and more attractive
- Smiling helps you live longer
The above is just a sample of a number of benefits to smiling. As a leader you can enjoy all of these by smiling more, but even more importantly you get the benefit of making people happy, especially those you lead.
And the more you smile, the better chance you have of creating the “boomerang effect.” When you smile, others will smile back. Smiling makes it more likely you will be a positive leader, meaning you will get more positive back from those you lead.
So, smile leaders! I challenge you to smile more. Spread the endorphins. Feel the difference and make a difference. But make sure it is genuine and not forced or faked. Can you see my smile? I hope so 🙂
