Imagine this classic American scene: a well kept house with a white picket fence. The fence sits perfectly straight and brilliantly painted, not a board out of place. That fence greets everyone who pulls up, making a first impression that’s not always consciously noted.
Yet a crooked fence, an uneven post, or peeling paint all change the appearance of the entire scene…dramatically.
A Happy Grin
Smiles matter, probably more than we realize. Studies confirm the powerful role of smiles in our relationships and on our self-esteem, just as romance may spark with a simple smile across a crowded room, and a child’s self-worth is partially built through mom’s beams of approval. Salespeople who use the 13 muscles needed to smile rather than the 113 muscles to frown, sell more. In fact, one study recently quantified the monetary value of a smile! Researchers found that in sales situations each genuine smile was worth about $0.43. Regardless of the measure, a genuine, attractive smile bolsters success in every aspects of your life.
