Smile and Its Spiritual Purpose

Many people think that they should be happy to smile which is incorrect. Indeed, if you're happy your face becomes cheerful automatically but if you leave your smile to your happiness, indeed, then you're missing a very important point.

Spiritual Purpose of Smile:

The spiritual purpose of smile is to show love, caring and understanding to other people and environment which inevitably attracts happiness, love and caring into your own life.

Give and it will be given to you surprisingly much more than what you gave initially.

Don't rely on your life's happy moments, success or achievements so that they bring you smile; You initiate and maintain it!

I am not talking about a fake smile, I am talking about a purposeful smile to make your life smile and happy. To make the people around you feel better and consequently you will feel better and become happier.

It's good to know about the impact of your smile on yourself and others but never forget the spiritual purpose of smile.

  • Smile let you seem more successful

How to Smile?
  • Purposefully smile and that purpose is to love your environment, neighbour and people around you
  • To smile, don't rely on your life's happy moments, success or achievements
  • Smile confidently and respectfully
  • Smile with your eyes
  • Take responsibility and initiative to smile
  • Smile to love
  • Develop your smile and practice it

The Cost of Not Smiling?

  • ...
  • Can you smile when you're not happy, stressful, depressed or worry? of course you can...
  • When we are thinking, it is often hard to smile but with practice we can smile even when we are thinking and focusing on a subject
You are wise when you know and you apply your knowledge. Knowledge on its own doesn't bring wisdom. A person who has the knowledge but doesn't practice it, is not a wise man.

Be Sensitive About People

Watch out your words what impact they would put on other people and how they would be perceived by others.

Does it have contradiction with Assertiveness? absolutely not.

You can be both sensitive about others and assertive about your position at the same time.

The Journey from Worry to Faith

Worry is the opposite of faith. They can't co-exist; you either worry or have faith. You cannot be in worry and be in faith at the same time. When you are in faith, you are not in worry. And when you are in worry, you are not in faith. Worry ends when Faith begins and Faith ends when worry begins.

Anything which is not from faith is sin according to Bible (Romans 14:23), so I believe we should take full responsibility to drive on the road from Worry to Faith, then to make sure that we inhabit in faith no matter what.

How to Manage Distraction?

You're working on something which requires focus and intense thinking, suddenly someone distracts you by his question or asks you to do something for him.

You get distracted and the work you were going is forgotten or delayed and you become less productive. Have you been in this situation? in the recent weeks I have and it's extremely annoying since you can't progress and be productive in the way you wanted.

Stay focused:
  • Write down your tasks and walk through the written tasks in the order of importance; prioritizing is very important, do the jobs which are the most important and do them quickly
  • Some tasks can be done quickly and some you have to think about them in details and deeply
  • Know that prioritizing is not a one-time process; you should constantly prioritize
  • Put your watch in front of you to be aware of the time passing - it might give you stress though
  • Fill up a water of bottle; keeping yourself hydrated is essential
  • Stay positive and say positive words
Manage Distraction:
Ok, you do all you can to stay focused but you get distracted, what can you do?
  • Put on headphones; play a music that helps you concentrate. It's a signal to others that you are working. It helps you keep out of distractions
  • When someone asks you something which is not vital to do, express that you're busy and will get back to that person when you have time. Then add a reminder to your task list
  • Don't answer emails that don't require answer
  • Don't attend meetings which are irrelevant and waste of time
  • Don'g answer your phone if it's not necessary to do so - get back to the caller when you have time
  • Allocate time slots colleagues can interrupt you; communicate clearly that unless something is urgent you shouldn't get interrupted. say 2pm to 4pm, at the other time of the day focus on getting the work done
  • Clean up your desk to have less distraction
