The Best Accessory is a Beautiful Smile

"There is value in any experience that exercises those ethical restraints collectively called sportsmanship."

Here it is…

SMILE

Your smile is proof that the best things in life are free, empowering and life-changing.

Not only is your smile the best accessory you can wear…it’s the strongest emotional trigger you have for making a good first and lasting impression.

Yet for too many, it’s the weakest part of their game.

Let’s get something straight about that sweet spot between your nose and chin.

Your smile is best looked at as a super power.

Why?

Because an infectious smile illuminates…it steals the show, brightens the mood, creates good karma and makes everyone happy when they see it.

Your smile is contagious, and you get to decide what that means and how you are going to use or abuse (through neglect of its execution) this super power.

It does not matter if you’re a student, a doctor, a CEO, a mom, a dad, a kid, a janitor, a florist, a designer, or a fighter pilot; your smile is a super power which you can use to conquer the world with.

A smile is a force multiplier in that it is the fastest way to demonstrate friendliness, warmth, trust and likeability.

To be conscious of the effect of a scowl or a smile is to be socially aware…and increasing your social awareness is the purpose of this message.

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” — Thich Nhat Hanh

Be mindful that regardless of whether you manage a family or a business…you cannot instruct a person to smile and demonstrate enthusiasm any more than you can instruct them to give birth to a redheaded child.

"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy." — Thich Nhat Hanh

Be mindful that regardless of whether you manage a family or a business…you cannot instruct a person to smile and demonstrate enthusiasm any more than you can instruct them to give birth to a redheaded child.

The person you are communicating with must first be inspired.

Inspiration through proper modeling is what you give them.

Enthusiasm in the form of a smile and joyful energy is what they give you and share with the world.

People inhale inspiration and exhale enthusiasm.

They cannot give you enthusiasm until you give them inspiration.

Is your smile and enthusiasm contagious or is it contained?

Are you modeling the behavior you want repeated and inspiring those around you?

Remember…behavior never lies.

There’s no better way to say hello than through a big, beautiful smile. It’s the exclamation mark at the beginning and end of every encounter…and it makes a significant deposit into everyone’s emotional bank account.

A smile is the sign of a pro…a powerful demonstration of excellence, and in the words from the famous Broadway show Annie… “you’re never fully dressed without a smile.”

Excellence — Personal mastery, increased skill development, as well as performing to the best of your abilities are the hallmarks of good sportsmanship. Everyone can be a success because success relates to the effort put into realizing one’s personal potential.

Teamwork — Good sportsmanship implies that the player on a team is a team player. In other words, the player understands that his or her behavior reflects on the team in general. Moreover, a team player does not condone unsportsmanlike conduct from teammates.

Encouragement — Sportsmanship praises teammates when they do well and comforts and encourages them when they make mistakes. Criticizing teammates in the heat of battle simply distracts from the focus of working together and gives the advantage to the opponent who develops a sense of confidence when seeing signs of weakness or a lack of unity.

Gratitude — Coaches and athletes must understand that competing in athletics is a privilege, not a right. Be grateful for the opportunity to compete, be grateful for challenging opposition, be grateful for your skills and talents and never take any part of the game for granted.

Role Modeling — Modeling sportsmanlike behaviors within the sporting environment increases an athlete’s demonstration of sportsmanlike behaviors. Thus, what coaches do on the playing field or in the gym sends a message about appropriate behaviors to their athletes.

Rewards — Any behavior (good or bad) that gets rewarded gets repeated. It crucial that we recommit ourselves to guiding our athletes, reminding them what sportsmanship is all about, rewarding them for showing good sportsmanship and showing, by our example, that sportsmanship is still alive and valued in sports today.

Sportsmanship is everybody’s business. Everybody from the coaches and players to the parents and fans — we can all learn or relearn the principles of sportsmanship.

If young athletes are not exposed to the essentials of sportsmanship, and if we don’t guide them in developing a sense of good sportsmanship, we can all but guarantee that they will fall prey to the uncivilized conduct, which they see, modeled and reinforced by so many poor examples.

Sportsmanship is an action verb — it is something we must actively seek to teach and reinforce through our words and our actions at every opportunity because sportsmanship counts.
