There are many different ways to "talk." With the advent of technology we refer to "talking" to someone online. More
Talk. Small talk. Big talk. Walking the talk. Talk show. Talking heads. Talk radio. Straight talk. Fast talk. Body talk.
Whew! Who knew there were so many variations on talking. And that's barely scratching the surface! So what is talk? Pretty obvious, right? Maybe not.
There are many different ways to "talk." With the advent of technology we refer to "talking" to someone online. Now, that might be via Skype or text messaging. Regardless whether it's writing or speaking we refer to it as talking.
Actually it's communicating and we would be a pretty sorry mess of humanity if we couldn't effectively talk to one another. However, have you really given any deep thought as to how you communicate?
Think about the last time you were walking along, minding your own business when you saw someone approaching who appeared a bit frightening.
He was unkempt, shaggy hair and unshaven. You drop your eyes to the floor avoiding any chance of communication. Even thought you didn't speak, you did convey a very powerful message speaking with your body, didn't you?
Or, how about this. You've happened upon an acquaintance in the mall. You've know her for years from your garden club, country club or wherever. She's a terrible gossip and just blathers on and on ad nauseam.
This time she caught you and you are stuck for the next ten minutes listening to her latest opinion on something unimportant. What happens? You plaster a smile on your face and totally disconnect your hearing giving an occasional nod as a means to an end.
Yep, it's another case of the body talking loud and clear!
Okay, track with us here. Ask yourself these three questions:
1. What if you could learn how to make your body's language talk better? 2. What if you were able to master the first impressions you give? 3. What if there were a way to learn to be a better talker?
Well, you can, there is and it's not as difficult as you may believe.
How to get started!
You could begin a course of study in the area of psychology at your local college or university. Probably not very realistic when all you are looking for are better communication skills.
You could visit your local bookstore and plunder the shelves buying up every tome you can find on the subject. Again, not very realistic and probably very expensive.
