S PEAK – S O THAT PEOPLE WANT TO LISTEN The human voice is the instrument we all play. It’s the most powerful sound in the world, probably it’s the only one that could start a war or say “I love you”, and yet many people have the experience that when they speak, people don’t listen to them. Why is that? How can we speak powerfully? to make change in the world. What I’d like to suggest that there are number of habits that we need to move away from. I’ve assembled for your pleasure here seven deadly sins of speaking. 1. Gossip 2. Judging 3. Negativity 4. Complaining 5. Excuses 6. Exaggeration 7. Dogmatism Gossip: Speaking ill of somebody who’s not present, not a nice habit, and we know perfectly well that the person gossiping, five minutes later will be gossiping about us. Judging: We don’t like people who judge others and it’s very hard to listen to somebody if you know that you’re being judged and found wanted at the same time. Negativity: You can fall into this. My aunt in last years of her life became very negative and it’s hard to listen to her.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
