The Power Of Smiling.


Back to school! Year 2 Semester 1 will officially start tomorrow. Prayerfully that in this new semester, I will improve myself in my academic performance, attitude and **secret**.

Enjoy your new semester, Swinburnians.


The power of a smile.

It was last week that i escorted Aldrin to settle his car service's bill at Perodua's office. Waited patiently as usual and i encountered this sign board hanging up high on the wall which has inspired me lots.


Indeed, the best way to treat customer is with Smiling Face. I presume that this byword is not only pertinent to the working society, but it's also relevant and applicable to us, as humans. True?

In fact, no one teaches a baby how to smile. It comes just so naturally. Something that everyone has.

Right now, in this very moment, allow Dr. Johnson W. to lecture you concerning the power of a smile. It encourages me heaps and hopefully same goes to you too.

None of us is given with the same talents, abilities and gifts, but one common gift that I believe everyone definitely has is the ability to smile. Have you ever realized that whenever the word "smile" is being mentioned, it does result in simulating the position of a smile on your face right after it's being uttered. The word is then come alive.

Even if a person is rated as the most handsome guy in the world, yet often carry a papaya face with him and never smile, he might degrade as the most ugliest and unattractive being of all. It's influential.

A smile is contagious.

Smile and the whole world smiles with you. In fact, this is surely agreeable. Whenever you project a smile to people, people can't help but bounce back with a simple smile back to you. To a greater degree, even strangers do that too. Even in your weariness, you still can't help but smile back when people smile at you. Despite of its simplicity, it does make the world a better place to stay. It enhances the atmosphere. It creates positive and heartening surroundings. And it definitely makes a difference.

Likewise, a frown creates an atmosphere too. An atmosphere of friction that will lead to conflict and hostility as to a smile can create a better unity and rapport. The question is, "Which is more preferable?" It's a gateway to your personality. It takes seventeen muscles to smile and forty-three to frown.

A smile can diminish pain, especially emotional and psychological pain. It helps in brightening your day. I mean, the entire day! A smile is worth more than a thousand words. It's a universal language. When people or friends smile at you, especially when you are so downcast, melancholy and least expecting it, you feel overjoyed and untroubled. It helps to erase off our papaya mood instantaneously. As a result, it turns your mourning into dancing.

In reality, I, myself is not perfect when it comes to smiling. I do luxuriate in smiling. Even many have evaluated me as a cheerful and sanguine guy. Yet, I do fail often times. I carry papaya face early in the morning and whenever i am discouraged. It's bad, i know. Still, i will disciple myself to consistently wear a smile whenever I am around. Or should i say, when i am still alive. =D Above all, it comes from the heart.

After all, the bible says in the book of Psalm 17:22,"A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."

It's undoubtedly difficult to consistently carry a smile with you right? Yet believing that a smile will bring a little sunshine to my life and others, I reckon that i am more blissful to bless others with it. No amount of money can buy you one. It has no monetary worth yet it's priceless. Even if it causes me to be very uncomfortable at times, but it will turn out to be comfortably uncomfortable. I will try my best! Under-construction. LOL!

Let's make it a habit.

To sum up everything, once again allow Dr. Johnson W. to inspirit all of his readers with these quotes.


Smile and it will increase your face value. ~Mutu Sadararajan

All the statistics in the world can't measure the warmth of a smile. ~Chris Hart

If you meet someone who has no smile, give him yours. ~Proverb

Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. ~Og Mandino

People seldom notice old clothes if you wear a big smile. ~Lee Mildon

Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day. ~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.


So, ready to show your best smile? Go to the mirror and practice smiling now! After all, a smile invites a smile.


You can make a difference!



Your smile reminded me of a funny post. I can't stop smiling and laughing.
