What is Million Dollar Vocabulary?
People in business are frequently judged by
how effectively they communicate. The manner in which a person
speaks leaves an impression either true or false about that
person's intelligence, background, education, and job status. An
individual with a comprehensive vocabulary will make a much more
powerful first impression than one who lacks in this area, no
matter how intelligent or well-educated that person may be. By
using words with power, persuasion, and impact, or a million dollar
vocabulary , a person can increase his or her communication and
boost earning power.
Good communication skills are essential in today's
competitive job market. A prospective candidate may have all the
necessary qualifications, but lose out on the job to an individual
who is better able to verbally express his or her ideas. But the
concept of a million dollar vocabulary takes this a step further
and focuses on the selection of specific words that have been shown
to contribute to an impression of power and success. Words
considered part of a million dollar vocabulary are not necessarily
obscure or complex; rather they are words that may be less
frequently used and because they are less common, convey a sense of
power and confidence.
The best way to illustrate the power of the million dollar
vocabulary is to cite illustrations of power words. For example,
using the word gumption to describe a person's initiative or
courage is far more effective than nerve or guts. Augment is much
stronger than add to or increase. Using ascertain rather than find
out or discover conveys more self-assurance. Exemplar or paradigm
are much stronger words than example or standard. A quick search of
the Internet reveals a number of different training programs
designed to teach the basics of attaining a million dollar
vocabulary . There are also books, CDs, and DVDs that can be
purchased to this end. However, there are also steps that a person
can take individually to build his or her own million dollar
vocabulary , and these are free of charge.
- Elevate your level of reading matter. If you've been reading
the tabloids and romance novels, it's time to switch it up and
expose yourself to a higher quality of writing.
- Use the Thesaurus. When you are writing a document using
Microsoft Word, employ the built-in Thesaurus on the Tools tab to
consider alternative word choices in key sentences. For example, in
the previous sentence substituting the word employ for use gives
the sentence more strength.
- Commit to spending 30 minutes per day researching new words and
practicing their use in an attempt to build your own million dollar
Building a million dollar vocabulary can help increase
earning power and convey a sense of power and prestige. It's a
relatively simple endeavor, but one that is worth the investment.
