Does Your Voice Attract or Repel Others?

Posted on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 by Positivevoice

Whether you like it or not, your voice categorises you. It speaks volumes about who you are and how you feel. It gives people an idea of where you're from and whether you are switched on and emotionally balanced. When someone picks up the phone to you, they will quickly read in between the lines and assess what kind of person you are and whether they want to interact with you.

Isn't it interesting that people go to gym to look after and perfect their body, but only a few seem to train their voice? When was the last time you had a vocal check-up? If you lose your voice from time to time, you probably aren't using it correctly. If you don't like your voice, you could do a lot to improve it. Without it you are lost, with it many are mis-understood. The voice is highly overlooked and neglected, yet invaluable.
I recently worked with a business woman who had an incredibly soft voice. When I mentioned this to her, she said “I know, it’s because I’m shy”. This response may seem fairly logical to you, but it left me with several questions; when did she decide to ‘be’ shy? Does she just feel shy sometimes or does this emotion define her? If she strengthened her voice, would she feel more confident? In any case, a couple of months later, she left me a voicemail to say that she was running late for her Skype lesson and her voice sounded incredibly loud, clear and confident. Working on her voice and resonance had clearly made an impact.

This whole process is holistic, so ideally we work not just on the voice, but mindset as well, so that when you communicate your voice and emotions are in alignment and saying the same thing.
