One of the first things you will notice about yourself when making public presentations is your voice!
A low, squeaky, fast, nerdy voice will make even the best listeners loose interest in what you’ve got to offer, and the worst part is if it sounds bad even for you, then for others it sounds even worse, because we hear ourselves differently than others perceives us, if you ever listened to yourself on tape, you know what I’m talking about.
Having a deep voice that people will respect and listen to isn’t as hard as you think, you just need a few pointers and a little practice. Here is specifically what you can do:
- Stand straight, shoulders relaxed, breath deeply
- Start a recorder and then read with a steady pase loudly
- Calibrate your voice to feel it resonating in your chest
- Play the recorder to see how your voice sounds like
- Do this a few minutes everyday and in less than 10 days you’ll see a massive improvement in your voice and in the way people will listen to you. Because it’s not what you say that really matters but how you say it!
