Smash Your Way through Walls… by Smiling!

Many of you will agree with me… we live in an unhappy generation, where people tend to gravitate towards being cold towards others… and are all about self.

But there is a SIMPLE way that we can melt through some of the coldest hearts… and demolish through some of the thickest walls that people raise around themselves.

This can all be done by smiling.

You don’t need to talk… or take alot of time… or even know a person to smile at them. A smile is not intrusive… a smile is not offensive… but a smile is one of the QUICKEST ways we can smash our way through emotional & personal walls that people raise up.

People naturally open up to people who smile. You bless others to have a good day when you smile at them. If someone is having a bad day… your smile can bless them. If YOU are having a bad day… your smile can encourage yourself, and literally “trick” you into having a better day!

A simple smile is so POWERFUL… Dale Carnegie listed it the first of 6 ways to get people to like you… in his Best Selling Book… “How to Win Friends and Influence People“.

Check out this poem written by Barbara Hauck, age 13:

She smiled at a sorrowful stranger.
The smile seemed to make him feel better.
He remembered past kindness of a friend and wrote him a thank-you letter.
The friend was so pleased with the thank-you letter that he left a large tip after lunch.
The waitress, surprised by the size of the tip, bet the whole thing on a hunch.
The next day she picked up her winnings and gave part to a man on the street.
The man on the street was grateful; for two days he’d had nothing to eat.
After he finished his dinner, he left for his small dingy room.
(He didn’t know at the moment that he might be facing his doom.)
On the way he picked up a shivering puppy and took him home to get warm.
The puppy was very grateful to be out of the storm.
That night the house caught fire.
The puppy barked the alarm.
He barked ‘til he woke the whole household and saved everybody from harm.
One of the boys that he rescued grew up to be a President.
All this because of a simple smile that hadn’t cost a cent.

Until next time, be blessed and walk in God’s abundance today!
