You may be asking yourself,” What in the name of corn on the cob is this talking about? What chapter? What plan? What life?” Well, the chapter referred to is from a book called How to Win Friends and Influence People. I’ve mentioned it in some of my other essays. If you don’t know what it’s about, buy the book. Or just look at the title if you don’t know what it’s about. It’s that easy.
This book has so many good qualities. If I’m being honest, I need to use every chapter in my life. At the end of every chapter is one little sentence that sums up the entire chapter. If you don’t want to read that chapter but want to know what it was about, you can either go to the end of the chapter for the summing up sentence or you can go to the back of the book where all the summing up sentences are stored. It’s that easy.
One of the chapters is about smiling when you talk to people. It makes them like you more and they will open up to you more easily. For example, one of the stories to demonstrate that was about a woman who purchased many jewels to make herself beautiful. It didn’t work. Do you know why? She was a very sour person. She never smiled so she didn’t make many friends. I’ve heard of a story( I can remember the names, I’ll just call him John and her Beth). John was an old man who was having a bad day. He went to a concert or some such in which one of the performers was a girl, Beth. At the end of her song, Beth glanced at the crowd, looked right at John and smiled. That one smile brightened his day and made it so much better. He never forgot that smile. When he died, he left a good portion of his money to Beth. So, just because she smiled at him, Beth made John’s day better and got a bunch of money. That’s just one example of why a smile can help you make friends. I don’t know if that is a true story or not but even if it isn’t, it’s a great lesson for all of us. And on that good point, I’ll conclude this essay.
