June 9: Articulation

Articulation is important.  How we express our needs, wants, desires, frustrations, ideas, and feelings can change our lives.  If we practice doing it in an appropriate, well thought-out manner, using words in an eloquent way, it is more likely that others will be more receptive to what we are thinking and saying.  It is more likely for them to want to engage in conversation with us.

HOW we present ourselves and our ideas is often more important than the idea, itself.

Unexpressed expectations is the number one cause of strife within any relationship.  Expressing our desires, wants, needs, requests, and expectations eloquently is one of the most important things we can do.  

The great Zig Ziglar taught that selling is an art that we all must master.  We must sell our ideas to our children when we want them to go to bed, clean their rooms, or do anything else we desire for them to do.  We must sell our ideas to our spouses, friends, co-workers, bosses, and strangers.  The more effective we are at selling our ideas to others, the more we are able to benefit ourselves and others.  It is much easier to sell anything, especially our ideas, when using proper and effective articulation.


Have you ever heard the phrase, “Words are a prison?”  Isn’t it interesting how the prison cell of an articulate,  eloquently spoken, well-read communicator, differs from the prison cell of someone who is just learning how to speak and communicate?  It is similar to the difference between living in an elegant 10 million dollar mansion on the beach, and living in a dilapidated camper trailer in the middle of a desert.


Language, and articulation in any language, is an art that can be learned, practiced, and repeated, if we desire to be more capable of effective communication, and more effective CREATORS. There will forever be room for improvement, no matter how good we get at anything, but improvements in articulation and communication will result in improvements in our personal life experiences.

A useful practice to habituate is to IDENTIFY AS A LEARNER.
