“So, how are you? Quite a week — yes?” (said the greatest networker)
“I’ll say. Gosh, I’m really, really great, thank you. How are you?” (said the student)
“Proud and pleased with you for one thing.” He smiled his biggest, broadest grin.
“There’s that smile I want to package and sell,” I laughed, pointing to his beaming face.
“Ah yes, that smile,” he said, clearly pleased. “Want to know a secret?” he asked, leaning towards me with an expectant expression.
“Sure,” I said.
“This smile was something I taught myself to do. In fact, I first used it to change my thoughts and attitude.”
“Well, I once heard a Networker talk to a group of people he was training. He was speaking to them about negativity, how many of the skeptical thoughts and pessimistic attitudes in this business stem from rejection. He explained how he used a smile to change his attitude.
“Now, I am by nature a worrier. You look surprised! It’s true,” he told me. “I can worry about anything and everything, mostly the future. At least I used to — and I still do to some extent. You know that — what’s the word . . . acronym? Fear: False Expectations Appearing Real. I’m a master of that.
“Anyway, this guy who was training asked the audience to do an experiment with him. He told them that in a moment he was going to have them think a negative thought. Anything bad would do, he told us. Then, once we had that pessimistic thought in place, he said he was going to have us do something really interesting and just see what happened.
“So, we all got our angry or afraid or critical or worrying thoughts in place. He told us to keep our hands up, then lower them when we had our unhappy thought firmly in our minds. As soon as all our hands were down, he shouted, ‘Now, smile! It doesn’t matter if you’re still worried or angry — just smile! Big. Huge. Ear to ear grins. Come on!’ he yelled. ‘Smile!’
“Well, most everyone in the audience broke up laughing. Then he asked us, ‘What happened’?
“Seems no one in the group could maintain their negative thoughts with smiles on their faces. He explained it was impossible to stay angry or worried while you were smiling. In fact, he told us that the mind is incapable of holding a negative and positive thought at the same time. He said science had discovered that when you smile, the brain releases a flood of endorphin-like chemicals along with a series of signals much like electricity that made having and holding negative thoughts physiologically impossible. It was fascinating. Fascinating!”

The Seven Laws may be applied under the mind and will of the individual, enabling him to take advantage of the flood‑tide of Rhythm, and to neutralize the ebb‑tide; to enable him to neutralize the Opposites; to find and hold the Balance and Poise; to convert the Cycles into Rising Spirals; to take advantage of the Law of Sequence — thus to Master Fate, instead of being her Slave; to conquer laws by laws; to oppose principle to principle; to acquire the Art of Mental Alchemy, or Transmutation of Mental States and Conditions.
