There was a wonderful fellow who was a disc jockey and later program director of WFIL in Philadelphia.
Jay Cook was first hired to be the midday personality on Famous 56 and one of the things that is so memorable was to watch Jay work. As soon as his microphone went on, he put a smile on his face. Then he talked.
Listeners heard a friendly and happy radio personality no matter what mood he may have been in and the audience ratings reflected his upbeat mood.
There are many advantages to smiling.
There’s no doubt that smiles change the way others see and respond to us. But smiling also changes us.
You can’t be mad with a smile on your face.
Or unhappy — as long as you try to smile.
Smiling is a real tool to bring about positive change initiated by you and not dependent on others going first.
Look for opportunities to smile today – and then watch the reaction of others along with the way smiling makes you feel.
As Tom Wilson said,
“A smile is a facelift that’s in everyone’s price range!”
Feel free to forward this thought to friends and family.
