To get those muscles relaxed here’s an exercise you can try: Start by taking a slow, deep breath.
When a guy speaks quickly it often gives the impression that he’s nervous, insecure, or lacks self-control.It’s crucial then to practice speaking at a slower, more relaxed pace.A good practice then is work on pausing for a second or two after a person speaks before you start talking.Taking your time like this shows you’re relaxed, confident, and are actually interested in what the other person is saying.You hear this all the time when people ask questions but it can happen when people give statements, too.
If you want to add an extra touch of authority to your speech do the opposite and end your sentences by lowering your pitch.
Below are a few tips on speaking with confidence that will help you develop the strong, powerful tone for projecting confidence in any situation.
Slow down The most common mistake men make that prevents them from speaking with confidence is speaking too quickly.
Eliminate filler words Filler words (words as “umm”, “uhh””, “like…”, etc.) are used to take up space while a person tries to figure out what to say next.
But using them just makes a guy look uncertain of what he’s saying. If you need a moment to think of what to say next simply pause and hold that silence.
To project confidence then, be sure to keep a low pitch and a smooth cadence when speaking (don’t bounce the pitch around, frequently going from high to low to high).
