Ways To Improve Your Communication Skills...

Hey there! Today I have a nice and important topic to discuss which I know will surely be helpful to all who read this post.
This topic is about the ways to improve one's communication skills instantly.
So, how can you do it? Lets have a look at some ways -

1) KNOW WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY

By thinking about your thoughts before you speak, you will increase your effectiveness as a powerful communicator. So, think before you speak and know fully what you speak.

2) CONTROL FEAR

Fear is the biggest obstruction in the way of fluent communication. Thus, overcome it.
Focus on the-

  • Listener and not yourself
  • Topic

3) STOP TALKING AND LISTEN

Conversation should be like a match, each person having a turn to give and receive. Allow your opponent to speak and respect his/her point of view.

4) BELIEVE IN YOUR MESSAGE

This is the most important part of any successful communication. Speak with passion and allow your feelings and body language to flow naturally.If you will believe in your own message then you will easily be able to make others believe in your thought too.

5) REPEAT MAJOR POINTS

Remember your major points and repeat them time to time to put a strong impact on the opponent.

6) AVOID DAY-DREAMING

Avoid daydreaming and focus on your speaker. Do not take long time to think about your speech.

7) USE MIND MAPPING

Mind mapping is a system of recording our thoughts so that we can remember them well. In order to do this, use symbols, words and colors etc. These markings will definitely be helpful in your conversation and to remember things and topics.

8) SUPPORT STATEMENTS WITH DETAILS

In talking to others be prepared to give more details. Put your most important statement first and then support it with details to make a strong impact on the opponent. The details with your main point will help to a great extent to make your opponent believe in you.

9) USE SHORT SENTENCES

Shorter sentences contain more power. They are also easier to interpret.

10) ELIMINATE NEGATIVE FEELINGS

Negative feelings drain out your energy. Thus, gain control of your feelings.

11) USE GOOD MANNERS

Good manners are always nice to use. Say such things as"please, thank you, excuse me" with sincerity. Show your interest in the conversation.

So, these were some points to improve your communication skills instantly and very effectively.
I hope you all will like it and that it becomes useful to all.

Last but not the least, here is a quote -

Your words are the clothes that 
thoughts wear, so dress them well
