It’s Friday, let’s keep it short.

The Flooding Smile is a concept from Leil Lowndes’ book, How to Talk to Anyone.

She says not to flash an immediate smile when you greet someone.

Instead, take the time to look them in the face when you greet them. Soak in their persona. Then, let a big, warm smile flood your face and flow into your eyes.

This split-second delay convinces people that your “flooding smile” is genuine and only for them.
