Things That You Don’t Need To Tell A Strong Woman At All

Things That You Don’t Need To Tell A Strong Woman At All

Things that you don’t need to tell a strong woman at all as she has been through a lot of challenges in her life but has never allowed the negative experiences to define her. She’s clear about what she does and doesn’t want and is not afraid to stand up against things that she does not agree with or finds unfair.

Meeting someone who knows themselves so well can feel intimidating and make you question what you can or cannot say to them. Here are some things that you really don’t need to tell a strong woman at all.

1. Get over it, it’s been long enough

You don’t need to tell a strong woman how long she must spend on the floor after life has knocked her down. She knows that she needs time to process the setback and then make a plan of action to move forward. She won’t dwell on things for long but she knows when she needs a timeout to just let go and be.

2. You’re stupid and worthless

The reason for her strength is because she knows her own self-worth and her own value. Telling her that she’s stupid and worthless will only make her look down at you and show her that you are reflecting your own self-worth on to her.

3. You’re so confident

Strong women exude confidence because they have overcome a lot in their journey and learned from their experiences. They are not arrogant but humble with their confidence because they have taken enough knocks in life and gotten back up again.

4. You don’t need anyone to lean on

Everyone needs someone to lean on when things happen in life and a strong woman knows that. She’s not afraid to reach out for support or ask for help. By following this action she is showing her strength even more because being strong does not mean you need to be alone!

5. I will tell you how to live your life

A strong woman knows what she does and doesn’t want in her life. When someone is constantly telling her what she should say, do and how she should be; odds are that that person will no longer be a part of her life. She will not tolerate being treated like a child.

6. I am the guy you’ve been waiting for

If you want to be with a strong woman then do not tell her that you are the man for her. She knows her mind and heart and will only be with you if she sees something special in you. Otherwise she will find someone else, she’s in no hurry.

7. You don’t know how to fix this

Strong women are solution driven and not problem focused. So telling a woman that something cannot be done will only make her more determined in finding a solution to making things happen.

8. You don’t need to do anything with your life

Strong women are driven to achieve their dreams and accomplish something in their lives. They do not have the energy or willpower to sit around and do nothing for long. Even if she isn’t a career woman, odds are she will be part of or leading some organisation or charity and making a difference.

9. You’re such a weak person

A strong woman is all about being assertive. She knows her boundaries and is clear about what she will and won’t tolerate from people. She doesn’t need to scream and shout to get her point across.

10. You don’t get what they want

A strong woman likes open, honest and direct communication.  Mind games are something she finds immature and a waste of time. She has nothing to hide and therefore is not afraid to tell you what she is thinking. So just ask.

7 Public Speaking Techniques To Help Connect With Your Audience

7 Public Speaking Techniques To Help Connect With Your Audience

When giving a presentation or speech, you have to engage your audience effectively in order to truly get your point across. Unlike a written editorial or newsletter, your speech is fleeting; once you’ve said everything you set out to say, you don’t get a second chance to have your voice heard in that specific arena.

You need to make sure your audience hangs on to every word you say, from your introduction to your wrap-up. You can do so by:

1. Connecting them with each other

Picture your typical rock concert. What’s the first thing the singer says to the crowd after jumping out on stage? “Hello (insert city name here)!” Just acknowledging that he’s coherent enough to know where he is is enough for the audience to go wild and get into the show.

It makes each individual feel as if they’re a part of something bigger. The same goes for any public speaking event. When an audience hears, “You’re all here because you care deeply about wildlife preservation,” it gives them a sense that they’re not just there to listen, but they’re there to connect with the like-minded people all around them.

2. Connect with their emotions

Speakers always try to get their audience emotionally involved in whatever topic they’re discussing. There are a variety of ways in which to do this, such as using statistics, stories, pictures or videos that really show the importance of the topic at hand.

For example, showing pictures of the aftermath of an accident related to drunk driving will certainly send a specific message to an audience of teenagers and young adults. While doing so might be emotionally nerve-racking to the crowd, it may be necessary to get your point across and engage them fully.

3. Keep going back to the beginning

Revisit your theme throughout your presentation. Although you should give your audience the credit they deserve and know that they can follow along, linking back to your initial thesis can act as a subconscious reminder of why what you’re currently telling them is important.

On the other hand, if you simply mention your theme or the point of your speech at the beginning and never mention it again, it gives your audience the impression that it’s not really that important.

4. Link to your audience’s motivation

After you’ve acknowledged your audience’s common interests in being present, discuss their motivation for being there. Be specific. Using the previous example, if your audience clearly cares about wildlife preservation, discuss what can be done to help save endangered species’ from extinction.

Don’t just give them cold, hard facts; use the facts to make a point that they can use to better themselves or the world in some way.

5. Entertain them

While not all speeches or presentations are meant to be entertaining in a comedic way, audiences will become thoroughly engaged in anecdotes that relate to the overall theme of the speech. We discussed appealing to emotions, and that’s exactly what a speaker sets out to do when he tells a story from his past or that of a well-known historical figure.

Speakers usually tell more than one story in order to show that the first one they told isn’t simply an anomaly, and that whatever outcome they’re attempting to prove will consistently reoccur, given certain circumstances.

6. Appeal to loyalty

Just like the musician mentioning the town he’s playing in will get the audience ready to rock, speakers need to appeal to their audience’s loyalty to their country, company, product or cause. Show them how important it is that they’re present and listening to your speech by making your words hit home to each individual.

In doing so, the members of your audience will feel as if you’re speaking directly to them while you’re addressing the entire crowd.

7. Tell them the benefits of the presentation

Early on in your presentation, you should tell your audience exactly what they’ll learn, and exactly how they’ll learn it. Don’t expect them to listen if they don’t have clear-cut information to listen for. On the other hand, if they know what to listen for, they’ll be more apt to stay engaged throughout your entire presentation so they don’t miss anything.
