“Our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.” ~Herman Melville
Ladies, yes I am calling you out, and feel free to push back if you really disagree… what is the deal with the scowls all the time? It’s even the weekend and everywhere all I see is what I call “that look.” It’s not necessarily an angry or mean look, just a very serious, anxious, “I am not happy and don’t even think about approaching me” look. Now this certainly may be coming from my perspective and viewpoint, but I do not see this look on the faces of men in general. Sure some may be serious, or even angry, just not that… I am always pissed off look.
I am guessing that perhaps many do not even realize it’s there. I think it is time for us all to start paying attention to our expressions… and start smiling more. When I trained telephone salespeople, and I still recommend this to many, I used to make them put a mirror on their desk so they could always see how they look. It’s amazing how different a series of calls will go when you are smiling during those calls rather than frowning. Try it sometime… but more important, start carrying a mirror or making sure to take a look at yourself in mirrors or windows periodically during the day. Pay attention to what you are putting out there. I am fairly certain it will make a dramatic positive difference in your day-to-day interactions.
So… Turn that Frown Upside down and start smiling more, if nothing else it will certainly make YOU feel better.
When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each
time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from
that service? Many thanks!
Sorry about that. Not sure how to do that, but will have someone take a look.
