Mid Level

Identity

Your behaviors or past results don’t define you as a person or your identity. When a person attempts to do something in life and doesn’t get desired results, and instead of thinking that his ATTEMPT failed, he believes that HE died. This kind of thinking may lead to a limiting belief that “I AM a failure,” especially if it happens frequently.

Are you getting our point? It is all about the identities you attach to yourself, and that’s why it is essential to differentiate between a person’s identity and behavior or results. Usually, most of us quickly give ourselves labels based on specific behaviors or outcomes. For example: “I am not a good communicator.” (NO, you didn’t communicate properly at a particular time). 

The first mindset will never allow you to improve yourself. Contrarily, the second approach will help you to grow. You will improve yourself gradually and will become an excellent communicator one day. 

Find your "WHY"?

Your time is precious. Don’t do things vaguely. Have you done something passionately in your life? If yes, you must know that you have a special kind of energy in yourself at that time. The same is the case with communication! Before communicating with anyone, think for a moment about why you are here? What is the purpose of your talking? When your “why?” is clear, you can communicate significantly. At that time, you will feel you have an opportunity to prove yourself, and positive energy will flow into your body

Provide Value To The Audience

Earlier, we mentioned that you should have a clear purpose in your mind before talking to people. But, you also have to find the interest of the people sitting in front of you. Why should they listen to you? What are their interests? Why would they buy your product? Why would they show interest in your conversation? Sort out this thing and start communicating compellingly. The way which they cannot resist. Bring their interest in the conversation!

Take Out The Trash

Your mind should be focused entirely on a specific task if you want to complete it in the best way. If there are a lot of irrelevant thoughts running in your mind, then how can you communicate properly? Even other people will find you unconfident. Clear all the outside things from your mind. Use this most straightforward trick for this.

Stop and breathe, and take ten deep breaths before any meaningful conversation. 

Visualize Your Success

Before communicating in any gathering or an important business meeting, take some deep breaths and close your eyes for a few seconds. All you have to do is, visualize your success. Feel that feeling. You will feel the positive energy flowing throughout your body, and it will help you communicate passionately and effectively.

Body Level

Body Language

There are tons of books and precise body gestures that are explained in books or videos. But, always remember this rule, “Be open and be strong.” Just don’t close up as it is a sign of nervousness. Observe the body language of booming speakers; you will find this thing in them. They remain open, strong, and relaxed. A confident person has strong body language. Yes, it is true, but it is also true the other way around. Available and robust body language boosts your confidence.

Rapport building

You have to judge the audience first. You must follow the rule, “Evaluate, match and then bring.” First, you must analyze the energy level of the people sitting before you. Try to match their energy. Once a particular connection is developed between you and them, only at that point bring them to your level of energy.

Use Simple Words

It would help if you used words that are easily understandable for a person sitting in front of you. The point of communication is to convey your message correctly.

Remove Ums and Filler Words

You can only find the right solution once you realize the actual problem. Some people keep on saying “um,” “all right?” and “you know?” type filler words during their whole conversation. It is such an unattractive way of talking. Analyze your communication. Are you repeating some words again and again? Try to minimize it. You could pause for some seconds during public speaking instead of using filler words. Remember, silence is a sign of confidence. It is a sign that you have got control of the room.

Be Brief

Your conversation should be brief and to the point.
