Live Life with Gusto
Life is a gift; live it with gusto everyday. Don't worry about the future because most of what you worry about never happens. So be happy like the song says.
It takes only a few muscles to smile and many more to frown so avoid the potential muscle strain and smile. An old adage says: "A smile costs nothing but gives so much." You want to have some fun walk around with a smile and watch the reaction of those around you. What's up with him? What does he know that I don't? That's probably what they are thinking.
When we speak with a smile, we sound sincere. Next time your on the phone listen carefully to the other party and try to determine if they're smiling. If it is a carefully trained employee they'll answwer the phone with a smile, a smile is conveyed over the phone. Most people want to do business with people that smile not people that frown. In fact you probably enjoy the company of happy and positive people more than negative and grumpy people. Why do you think that is? Positive people amd conversely negative people each send out an energy field. One is positive and the other negative. Positive people achieve more, are more liked and have stonger confidence and self-esteem than negative persons.Does that surprise you in any way?
And the number 1 reason for smiling is that happy people live longer and happier lives.
