Speak more slowly. A person who feels not worth listening to will speak quickly, because he/she doesn’t want to keep others waiting on something not worthy of listening to. It is such a simple thing, but slowing your speech down can have a big difference in how others perceive you. It shows #confidence. Make a conscious effort to slow down what you say. You can not only speak each sentence more slowly but also try to take a slightly longer pause between the end of one sentence and the beginning of the next. Allow a pause of several seconds, take a breath, choose your words with care, then speak.
Finally, think about your volume. #Confident people speak very audibly – and this makes a difference as well. You will be perceived as if you believe in what you are saying and it that you feel comfortable to share it with others.
Even if you don’t feel the confidence of someone who speaks slowly, try doing it a few times. It will make you feel more confident!
