"hail means to greet or acclaim enthusiastically" 1) H: honesty (be clear and straight) 2) A: authenticity (be myself) 3) I: integrity (be my word) 4) L: love (wish them well) 3. how I need to say: tools to play with to increase power of my speech 1) register: e.g. if wanting weight, lower pitch of voice 2) timbre: the way voice feels e.g. breathing, posture 3) prosody: rhythm (e.g. not monotone) 4) pace: e.g. slow to emphasize 5) pitch: e.g. make pitch high or low 6) volume: e.g. louder to emphasize 4. exercise the following before making a presentation 1) arms up to sigh out with ahh 2) lips with ba ba 3) lips with brrr 4) tongue with la 5) tongue rolling an r 6) siren from we to aww

LLOYD POPP : There's Islamic teaching that having you to Say "Bismillahirrahmanirrahim" before do things, which covering those letters required in this speech of how to warming up lips. Especially when you pronounce that "Bismillahirrahmanirrahim" correctly (the term called "makhraj").

Micah Buzan : If these types of interpersonal skills along with mindfulness meditation were taught in schools, we would live in a much more sane world. Intelligence isn't just about memorizing facts.

Peter : Imagine if your boss found you doing the voice exercise and just head you going WWEEEEEOOOORRRRRRWEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOORRR

The KingPin : I think overconfidence or cockiness is worst to hear talking than negativity

Cap903 : I don't know, there's quite a bit in here I don't relate to. For example, I feel that negativity and complaining actually can be a good way of bonding with people if you for instance both feel negative towards the same thing (if you both dislike a certain food, music, tv show, anything really). Meanwhile, someone who is overly positive and nice, I would sometimes just find them fake and annoying to a certain degree.

Nightcore World : 7:00 This reminded me of my maths teacher. While teaching he used suddenly increase his volume and the next second used to lower her volume so much that not even the front seater was able to hear what he was saying XD

AdMan : Wow doesn’t Islam teach most of these!?!?!!

Mycel : complaining is the UK's national sport? if he's implying that they're the best at it, as a german I'd like to object. we're pretty damn good at it ourselves. well... I guess brexit is a pretty strong argument in your favour. ;)

Ravi Ranjan Kumar : It would really help people i think. Your conversation was powerful though.

Rafael Eliassen : *I used to do all 7!* No wonder nobody wanted to listen :) Well I fixed all of them, and now they do.

thechangingtimes : What if people can’t stand the truth? (TRUMP Voters, cult members, incompetent CEO’s, etc...) What if people and even entire societies have built their ENTIRE existence around dogmatism? (Religion) What if people are actually more popular and actually move higher up in an organization by engaging in occasional gossiping? (This is a researched fact). What if complaining actually releases stress and decreases cortisol levels? (Also another TED talk). What if it isn’t words, but actions that determine whether or not people will “listen” to you? What if there were TED talks that offered almost no research to back up their claims, but instead had people making absurd animal noises because of mindless group-think? What if the pulp-TED talks people came up with were nothing more than marketing stunts to gain views /clickbait to further their business interests and “consulting” speaker fees? Hmmmm... what if?

Wasi Khan : this guy's a treasure

Troubled INTJ : The rationals of the mbti community mastered the art of making people listen to what they speak yet they are so silent.

Drew Blanche : What about eye 👁 contact? I’m horrible at it. 🙄

Kolos : After watching this video, I have this urge to shave my head

nguyen van minh : The tittle attracts a lot viewers 🤓

WIDLEY1000 : great lecture - have you ever worked in a factory or office !!! the fact is its about how well your boss likes you, everything else in the real world in just talk...try all of these and see if you bosses take any more notice of you...oh wow i being negative !! cardinal sin or just plain reality ?

J Shirls : The Measures of a Good Speaker are focused on others: Honesty, Empathy/Listening (by doing only 1/2 the talking and allowing for honest questions and comments), and Keeping One's Word, NOT self-focused: how loud (a vain appeal to power) or fast (vain appeal to intellect) one can talk.
