George Matthew Adams! You can! Nothing is impossible! Your face

You can! Nothing is impossible!

Chapter 25: Your face

No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. – Regina Brett

Arch Lustberg, a former professor of public speaking at Catholic University

and now a consultant

with the American Chamber of Commerce,

says one of the keys to effective public speaking

is showing off an open face.

Lustberg writes in “Winning When It Really Counts”

that there are three types of facial expressions:



and open.

When speaking in public,

your facial expressions have a very important influence

on the message you want to convey.

Instinctively, the audience will assume

that “we can read other people’s thoughts

through their facial expressions”.

A closed face is one that has a vertical line between your eyebrows,

like when you frown.

You have this expression

when you have to think,


or get angry. Lustberg commented:

“It would be horrible if the audience had to see a face like that.”

A neutral facial expression is a lifeless facial expression

– there is no movement on the face except the corners of the mouth.

This facial expression is often seen on TV announcers.

Neutral facial expressions often appear cold and emotionless.

However, it is the facial expression

that many people use when speaking in public.

An open facial expression is one

that has dilated eyebrows with a few wrinkles on the forehead.

The points out that people often have open facial expressions

when they’re engaging in lively stories,

when talking to children,

when playing with pets,

or when they’re telling their favorite story. — Napoleon Hill


It can be said that the most wonderful work of art of nature

is the human face.

The special thing is

that among thousands of people born from the dawn of heaven and earth,

there have never been two completely identical faces.

Another special thing:

the human face always changes over time!

Facial expressions represent a person’s personality and emotions.

To understand someone,

the first thing you need to do is observe their facial expressions.

Although many people have the ability

to hide their emotions,

if you pay attention to them,

you can completely understand their thoughts

and feelings through facial expressions.

In each different moment,

each situation is different,

you can choose for yourself the appropriate facial expression:

closed, neutral or open.

There’s nothing wrong

with expressing your true feelings on your face.

The point is:

Always remember,

an open face is one of the secrets to helping you attract others

to your story

and an indirect way to help you achieve your goals in the negotiation.

Pay attention to your facial expression

because this is the first impression

of you in the eyes of the other person.

It greatly affects the message you want to convey.

Change your face if you find it detrimental

to your communication.

The only way to change facial expressions is to change personality.

Stay positive and practice smiling to get an open face.

This is also the first step to success in life.

Wealth can also be that attitude of gratitude

with which we remind ourselves every day to count our blessings. ― Chris Gardner
