The Art of Creative Speaking

Creative Speech
Create Your World
There is one thing that is constant throughout the history of humanity, and that is communication. The ability to speak is a faculty; to know what to say and how to say it is an art.

There are three intuitive ways by which humans communicate; gesture, deed, and word. Mastering these three areas of communication will be a phenomenal surplus for any person because of the doors that will be open to them. Actors and actresses study the art of acting which includes the ability to express the intended thought through their gestures as well as their words. Unfortunately, many people have not considered the importance of learning such a craft. The commoner who has been taught or self-tutored in the fine art of speech has been given the key to unlock many opportunities.


Certain jobs and high employment positions have literally been handed to people who exercised an ability to communicate effectively with their potential employer despite little or no education. Communicating well is not demonstrative by the use of big words, but in how words are used.

“Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills so that when important occasions arise, you will have the gift, the style, the sharpness, the clarity, and the emotions to affect other people.” –Jim Rohn

Great leaders have always been great orators, with a few exceptions. Socrates, Aristotle, and Plato were all Greek philosophers who understood that in order to express yourself in word; you must also learn the theatrics (gestures) as well. Hand gestures and body language is all a part of communicating when it comes to people understanding you. Words without gestures have a fifty percent chance of being misunderstood. People better understand you when they not only hear what you say, but they see how you say it.

Now we come to the all important part of communication which should be embraced and understood; there is power in words. There is no such thing as a powerless word. The use of words is the chief cause and material used to build your world. Words create worlds. The Bible says, “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God.” What kind of world are you framing with your words? Do you understand the life you are now living is being experienced because you verbally spoke it out?

Life and death is in the power of the tongue. Meaning, your ability to use certain words that can cause death or life to certain instances is all in your use of words. Jesus said, “…the words I speak unto you are spirit and they are life.” The words are containers that either carry the spirit of death or the spirit of life. You can kill an opportunity with your words or you can kick down its door. Watch what you say, and say what you want in your heart.

The greatest thing a person can do is build the world of their dreams with their words. The second greatest thing a person can do is destroy their world with their words. Don’t allow your mouth to become a demolition crew; allow it be a construction company.

Creating Wealth?

I believe that most people do not believe that working a job is exercising their ability to create wealth. One of the reasons for this is that they do not love their jobs.

If your job is an occupation, it is simply there to occupy your time. If your job is a vocation, then it is fulfilling a calling.

What is the difference between a prostitute’s job and your job? Not one single thing! She is doing what she feels she has to do in order to survive; and you are doing what you feel you have to do in order to survive.

Neither of you like what you are doing, but you do not believe that you can do anything else and make money.

The most difficult bad habit to break is the one concerning you. People generally do not like themselves, nor do they believe in themselves. We are so accustomed to following our history of failure instead of focusing on our vision or dream ahead of us.

It does not matter what you do in order to make money, you are exercising your God-given talent to make money.

Though I do not agree with what the prostitute does, she is at least ensuring that she does not starve. The odd thing about your ability to create wealth is that you are not deliberate in your aim toward what you really would like to do.

You do not have to immediately quit your job to live your dreams. Achieving your objective to make more money to pay off bills or so that you can give more to your church is noble.

Moreover, unless your dream business is producing more income than your job, I advise you to hold on to your bread and butter. You will know when it is time to toss your regular 9 to 5 job.

Trust in God and believe in the God who resides in you, and you can accomplish the desire of your heart.
