How To Speak Like A King

how to speak like a man

Speaking is just another form of communication. To convey meaning, information and ideas. Its not just opening your mouth and creating noises. Its to share what you got there. In your heart and in your mind. Words are power, and the only way to effectively use that power is to amplify and control it. Remember when your father start speaking in the middle of dinner. Everyone listens. When the president speak everyone listen and obey. Remember when a king speaks all of his subjects and nobles listen attentively. That is power. Its doesn't matter if they agree or not. Whats important is you get their attention and you leave a seed or you made a scar in their core with your words.

If you don't have and idea on how to do it here are the basic ideas on how to do it.

PROPER POSTURE
To be able to speak clearly and manly. First is you need proper and comfortable posture. You need to relax your muscles especially your vocal muscles in your vocal cord to prevent it from contracting or tightening thus producing a crack or high pitch sound.

Proper posture is important to create and project deep and authoritative voice.

To do this:

  • Always keep your chin up.
  • Stand straight if standing.
  • Swallow before speaking. Swallow those saliva or whatever it is. You can actually drink water before speaking. Or pretend you are swallowing something, let your vocal chord recoil.
  • Sit straight and relax your shoulder.
  • Keep your feet grounded on the ground. Don't try to tip toe because when you do it your voice raises to a higher pitch subconsciously.

MOUTH EXERCISE
Mouth exercise is very useful if you want your voice to project louder and clearer. The mouth is like your natural megaphone. Practice adjusting your lips forming a letter O and make a humming sound. Continuously and gradually make the opening of your mouth from small O to big O vice versa until you get the hang of it. Listen and feel if in what state of OOOs your voice sound cooler, deep, and little loud.

TONGUE ARTICULATION
This one is no brainier. Just practice speaking tongue twisters and record your voice. If you are not that convinced, you can't understand or other people can't understand your tongue twisters. Then you should be practicing more. Until you improved.

In speaking you should at least have this four quality. Loudness/Projection, Clarity, Diction, Confidence. These four contribute a big role in your speaking.

LOUDNESS/PREDICTION
What is the point of that awesome voice if people your communicating with can't hear what you are saying. Maybe they can hear but it sounded like a fading echo.
If someone says "what?" or lean to you when you speak it means you you have a small voice they can't hear you enough or maybe they just have a weak sense of hearing. Another tip to project your voice more clearly and loudly is imagining that you are talking to the people behind them. its like reaching the back audience but you only speaking to one person.

CLARITY
Whats the point of that loud voice if your subjects can't understand you. To be able to speak clearly. You need to pace down your voice. Speak slowly and naturally. Don't speak to slow like a sloth.  Annunciate your words clearly and fully. Take your time to speak with purpose. Do some tongue articulation, breathing and mouth exercises.

DICTION
Whats the point of crystal clear words if you sound boring and plain flat. Like a robot. You can understand it but it bores you. To speak with good diction. First know what you want to say. Beware of punctuations and intonations in your sentences. Don't rush and use pauses effectively. Its like telling a story. You put life to words. And lastly speak like a normal human being. You are not paid doing a voice over that sounded like an old voice synthesis of google.

CONFIDENCE
Whats the point of all those loud well projected, clear and awesome voice if you are to anxious to speak. Be confident in speaking. Its your voice that you're using not theirs. I think most of you notice that people talk a lot if they are talking about something that interest them or talking about their passion. Yes. Start talking about your passion or the things that interest you if you don't know how to start a conversation topic. Get excited about the things your talking don't bore the listener. Use facial expression and gestures.

Relax and don't rush to respond. In doing so you give your mind and body the time to think and calculate your next words so that you don't sound stupid. A confident man isn't afraid to collect his thoughts. Rushing to blurt out answers makes you seem anxious and like you’re trying too hard.

When you speak own everything like a king. Own the moment, own your voice, own your audience, own the atmosphere. Own it as if you are born to speak and the audience are destined to listen.

OTHER TIPS
Don't look down. It will make you look anxious and nervous. Plus other people may mistook it as if you are hiding something or lying.

Use your chest/diaphragm not your head voice. Don't talk like a high estrogen creature. Kings don't talk like that.

Select the words you speak. Cater the occasion and situation. Choose words that are wise to use. So that you will not sound stupid and look like a total asshole.

Don't use filler words. Like umm, hmmm, ahhh, its OK to create a moment of silence. Creating a moment of silence will make your audience listen to you more.

Look people in the eyes. Or just between the eyebrows. Don't look in their forehead or the top of their hair. They will notice.

When speaking to women don't look at their cleavage. But when you accidentally look at those treacherous mountains and the woman notice it. The best way to get out of it without being labeled as a pervert is ignore it or compliment it.

Avoid cat calling or whistle calling. You are a King you don't do that.

Avoid sticking your tongue out or licking your lips often. You will look like a psychotic pervert.

Always listen to what other peoples say. To be a good speaker you need to be a good listener. But it doesn't mean that you will agree to everything. No you don't.

When the King howls, the rest bows.

Always remember stay lean, stay clean, live life awesomely.
