Many studies show that the more times we sincerely smile during a conversation, the more likely it is the person listening will do what we want. Psychologists have determined that a key factor for increasing your perceived attractiveness is to smile more often. And greater attractiveness correlates to increased influence.
A word of warning though. A fake, cheesy smile can be spotted a mile away and will do far more damage than you can ever recover from. It’s also an immediate turn off.
Action – Sincere smiling comes from a heartfelt passion to serve others, a real pleasure in doing the work you do and a deep desire to share something with another person.
If you can’t smile about what you’re doing, don’t do it!
