Since time began we have been told by the wise that giving is much more beneficial than receiving. There have probably been many occasions when you had a good reason to question that advice but even in those moments your higher self would probably agree with the concept. I came across something in a file I keep which suggests there is something you can give every day … that would provide you with great compensation.
It costs nothing, but creates much. It enriches those who receive, without impoverishing those who give. It happens in a flash and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None are so rich that they can get along without it, and none are so poor but are richer for its benefits. It creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in a business and is the counter sign of friends. Your gift will provide rest for the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad and nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet, it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen for it is something that is no earthly good to anybody till it is given away! And, if it ever happens that a salesperson should be too tired to give one of these to you, you may want to give them one of yours.
For nobody needs one of these so much as those who have none left to give.
This is a bit of a riddle isn't it? What on earth could provide so much for so little.
A SMILE - that's right, a smile.
Make up your mind to give a big one to every person you come in contact with today.
A smile … form ear to ear, and pay particular attention to the reaction you get from every person you give one to. Professionals who train people on the proper use of the telephone will tell you to smile when you are using the telephone and it will improve your effectiveness.
