I Smiled :)
Walking down the hall I smiled.
Sitting across from people at a meeting I smiled.
When I smiled I found that people smiled back or at the least acknowledged me in a deeper fashion.
Even when I really did not want to smile I found that forcing myself to grin made people more open to talking to me. It was like I was opening my self up to a less intimidating person by simply smiling. I know it sounds crazy or over emotional. But the basic fact is that when I smiled people engaged back and the engagement was a connection I could never have created with a cunning statement or thought. It was only ever going to be created by my smile a body language. Next time you really want to connect with someone smile at them just a simple smile not only will it make you feel free but it will create a bridge to a connection with the person you are smiling at.
