Communication Tip #36
Do you need a reason to increase your working vocabulary?
Anthony Robbins, in his recent article CHANGE YOUR WORDS, CHANGE YOUR LIFE, says, “According to Compton’s Encyclopedia, the English language contains some 500,000 words. Yet the average person’s working vocabulary consists of 2,000—0.5% of the entire language. And the number of words we use most frequently—the words that make up our habitual vocabulary? For most people, it averages 200-300 words.”
Here’s a suggestion: Choose five words you’ve read or heard and use them today. Choose five different ones tomorrow. Together, we can bring up that abysmal average!
