Daily Steps In Self Mastery – Day 20: Geniality

Geniality
Adjective; warmly and pleasantly cheerful; cordial.

Cheerfulness wins friends. The mind is lighted by mental sunshine, and reflects itself in the face.  One cannot be depressed while the corners of the mouth turn up.  Make yourself attractive, magnetic, and interesting to others.  Constantly influence and attract friends.

My Exercise:

Say these words smilingly:

  1. I am always cheerful.
  2. My life makes for happiness and success.
  3. I smile in the face of trouble.
  4. I am brighter and happier every day.
  5. I am smiling now.

For it stirs the blood in an old man’s heart; and makes his pulses fly, to catch the thrill of a happy voice, and the light of a pleasant eye.  ~Willis
