Here are some keys to spreading a powerful sound.
- Personality. Do you have it? I'm sure you do. Personality is the unique flare in your voice that leaves you distinguishable from other voices that let people connect with your experiences and perspective. It is your audio essence. If you want to be heard, it’s vital that you celebrate your authentic self. People may want to be entertained, but it's your voice they are looking to connect with.
- Passion. Passion is the power of your purpose in alignment with your content and personality. So... what's the purpose? What's the content?
If your passion is clouded by unsure purpose and intention, then your vocal power will diminish and you'll loose your audience.
- Strength. Vocal strength is the ability to produce vibrant resonance and a command of your breathing technique. Sound travels on air, so resonance and air are finely connected in the voice. The air itself makes the voice work. When you exhale, air moves from your lungs through your trachea, then passes between your vocal folds and brings those muscles together. Soon a vibration occurs which creates sound.
So, if someone asks that you speak up, there's a good chance you'll use more air as you raise your volume. That's great, but not enough. Be careful not to come across as yelling - or more so, don't strain your voice. I suggest that you stand up straight and speak with confidence. You will be surprised at the impact your posture and state of mind have on your ability to present yourself. Be proud and confident of you position and project your message outward.
Don't be afraid to live out what you are passionate about.
