Consider one of the most well-known stories in American history: Lincoln at Gettysburg. In the context of re-thinking the winning voice, it is an important story to once again recall. On that legendary day, the 16th president’s speech followed a very long address by one of the most noted orators of that time. Lincoln spoke so quietly at Gettysburg that even people close to the platform had trouble hearing him. Yet, it is Lincoln’s voice that resonates through the ages, because a heartfelt voice, one that honestly expresses your deepest concerns, is one that people remember. After making improvements to your physical voice, remember that it’s also important to be sure of what you want to say so you can figure out the best way to communicate your point.
