Smile

The most important way to make people like you is to smile. That’s because smiling is often times the first opportunity we can take to build a connection with someone. Instead of looking down or away, look at the person and smile.

A smile is a friendly way to say hello and usually, the person will smile back. By wearing a smile on your face, you’re giving the impression that you’re friendly and approachable.

Remember A Person’s Name

When you meet someone and get their name, that’s a precious thing! Repeat it to yourself over and over trying to link their name with their face. Do you know why?

People love their name. They don’t always like the way it sounds or sometimes they wish they were named something else. But nonetheless, it’s unique to them and is part of their identity. Therefore, when you smile and greet someone by their name, it shows that they’re important.

You remembered them and it shows. It also lets them know that you view them as a person and not just a clerk or a worker. Read more

How Smiling Will Change Your Life & Transform Your Relationships

Smiling will change your life

At one of my previous employers, people thought I was nuts. The reason for this is because I always smiled. So many people in that store were miserable and hated their jobs. I was one of the few that always wore a smile, no matter what.

A smile is a friendly way to say, “Hello.” In retail, it’s a great rule of thumb to greet every customer that comes within reach. Simply saying, “Good morning,” with a smile makes you stand out from the rest. However, at peak seasons there may be too many people to say hi to. That’s when a smile comes in handy.

But there are other benefits of smiling also. A smile gives off a warm feeling. Next time you go to the stores, look around. Are there more people smiling than not? Then, try this. Smile at everyone you see. Most of the time, they’ll smile back. It’s a pretty cool thing. Read more
