How you say is more important than what you say…
Just 2 - 3 minutes of your time in the entire week to follow them if it appeals to you.  I am sure it will invoke you for personal effectiveness. 

Usually, most of us speak with a monotone. Just take the example of how you start your morning with a monotonous greeting "Good Morning". It sounds more like a formality than the intended and applied meaning to the simple greeting that you are offering. Ask yourself ... do you want to reflect both life and color when you talk.

In order to make a good impression, it is not only with what you say, but also HOW you say it. These tips will help you make a good impression:

First speak deeper. Speak with a deeper, more resonant tone. Deeper tones are associated with maturity, authority and intelligence.

Secondly, speak louder. It is better to speak slightly louder than you usually do, within reason. The answer is that you have higher levels of confidence in what you are saying.

Thirdly, speak slower. Slow down the rate of your delivery. It takes time for your listener to hear and absorb your material. Pay attention to your pacing and slow down to a moderate pace.

Lastly, speak with a tonality. 55% of communication is body language, 38% of communication is tonality, and 7% of communication is words that are forced out from your mouth. The words always sound good when they come from the heart. These three elements of conversation combine into 100% which creates your vibe. Your vibe is all three elements of communication combined into one. Get a hold on the 93%, and the 7% will be nearly irrelevant. You want to send those good vibrations, and leave people feeling with positive emotions. It starts with the way you are saying the things that you are saying to them. Fix vibe, apply the theory and communicate to be heard again and again; time to time.
