The human soul has the ability to portray emotional or intellectual energy, and intensity. This is especially so when it is revealed in a work of art. The human voice has the ability to do the same. It has the ability to show others how passionate you are about a particular topic, or how seriously you take your line of work.
As the human soul gives life to others, so too can your voice. Here are some tips on how to harness the power of your voice to give life to the people around you:
Don’t be afraid to be expressive in your speech. You want your audience to feel your enthusiasm, and it is critical that this is channeled through the way you sound.
Articulate Your Words Clearly
It’s always a good practice to pronounce your words with the right annotations and this is even more important when you are telling a story. It’s also important that apart from speaking clearly, you speak at the right volume. Being too soft would mean that your audience would struggle to hear what you have to say. Being too loud can easily cause your audience to switch off, especially if you sound unpleasant.
Practice, Practice, Practice!
Remember, like all good skills, the art of speaking well will take some time to develop. Be patient with yourself, take the time to record yourself when you practice. By recording yourself, you’ll hear what you actually sound like, and this will give you a good idea on what areas you may need to work on. Do invest the time for this skill. The art of speaking well is probably the most important skill for anyone to possess.
Your voice is your soul. Use it to give life to others!
