Sometimes we lessen our influence by using low impact words. Without thinking about it or by habit, some words “just” sneak in.
For example a word like “just” comes across as being apologetic. I “just” want to status with you to find out….. sounds like, “I’m sorry for taking up your time or bothering you.”
Think about removing these types of words. We come across as being more assertive. “I want to status with you to find out …. “ sounds direct and confident.
Let us use words that set us apart so we can be more impactful in our communications today.
