Ah, the importance of deliverance. It has allot of meanings, mostly biblical, but for today, deliverance means something entirely different.
When a person speaks peer-to-peer, peer-to-audience, peer-to-the world or family or friends, relatives, it means that they are delivering message. It could be important. It could be note-worthy. It could be the difference between life and death. It’s importance of how it is said — how it is uttered — will make all the difference since.
A person stands up in front of a crowded room — a crowded platform (train, bus, plane) and this person delivers a speech, advice, information, facts, figures; whatever they believe will inspire, motivate, turn the crowd to their way of thinking and behaving.
This person determines ahead of time how they’re going to deliver that particular message to the waiting crowd.
In today’s business world, there are still people, upper level management, supervisors, authority figures who listen to what you, the speaker, is trying to convey, make understood, or shared with the rest of us.
Your voice determines how well or how badly we the audience receive this message.
Is your voice thick with emotion? Dripping with moisture so that every word is taken in and swallowed whole? The audience agrees with you 100% and does not look for hidden motives?
Is your voice suave and sophisticated, smooth and oily, so that your listening audience is held spellbound to what you’re saying. They are held ‘in the palm of your hand.’
Is your voice raw and heated? Passionate? Compelling? Are you telling your audience what they know already or are you angering them to where thought, cares, responsibilities, and accountability for their actions no long exist and they are free to riot in the streets!
Is your voice soothing? Are you protecting a loved one? Are you calming a hurt child who needs to be free of this sudden pain?
What voice do you use when delivering a message? Is it important that you know what voice to use or do you even care?
Some people deliver simple statements but their voice ends in a question even when they’re not questioning.
Some people slur their words. They don’t enunciate. Their words are not distinct, clear, and crisp. People sometimes mistake what is said and fill in the blanks themselves even if it’s the wrong words that they are using or implying.
Some people speak in soft voices, but carry a big stick. Do you speak that way, but people are still afraid of you? Afraid of what pain you might inflict with your words? Afraid of what type of harm you might stir up with your voice?
Some people use their voices like whips egging people on and then retreating to a safer place so that when the blame is thrown around, these people will not take responsibility for stirring up the masses. These people hide among their audience confident that their camouflage words will protect them.
The day will come when you will need to take a stand and decide what kind of voice you will use when you speak to an audience. Only then will you get the desired results you need to sell them your product(s), book(s), idea(s), and you. Only then will you become successful as a speaker when you finally decide the importance of your delivery!
