Smile More? – The Inside Out Understanding

So this smile quotes page could well disappoint. There are only a few smile quotations, after all, and they’re appearing on a site dedicated to transformative coaching. But, in my defence, there is a video on smiling (down below) and I do think you WILL smile more once you’ve read and watched all, I do.

INTRODUCTION: Why This Smile Quotes Page?

Well, for reasons explained here (on this thoughts about feelings page) I’ve been busily recording 3 minute videos on a variety of feelings in the month of October (2015). Then I’ve been creating a page about that feeling – my experience of that feeling (e.g. sadness), as well as an Inside Out understanding of it.

And one day, for some odd reason, I decided to record a video where all I pretty much did was smile. 🙂 (You can watch that video below.)

Now I could have waffled on about what makes me smile (my experience of smiling) and what smiling really means (an Inside Out understanding of smiling) but – thankfully, you might say! – I decided not to.

Instead, I cobbled together (ahem, spent a good hour finding) the best, select few inspirational smile quotes, and created this page…

If you don’t have a smile, I’ll give you one of mine.

What IS This ‘Inside Out Understanding’, Then?

Essentially the Inside Out understanding is something that, once you grasp it and start to deepen your understanding of it, WILL help you smile more.

I share this understanding – that we’re living in the feeling of our thinking in the moment, not the feeling of our circumstances; that it’s not what happens to you that matters, but what you think about what happens; that life really is an Inside Out job 100% of the time – and I do so via posts like this, via videos like below, and via one to one coaching, too.

This understanding is as old as human life itself, but it was first formulated as The 3 Principles by a man called Syd Banks in the 1970s…

If you smile when no one else is around, you really mean it.
