6th Jan 2014 ~ EXAGGERATE! ~

6th Jan 2014

“Let me explain ~ ”

1) The coffee tastes really good.
2) The coffee tastes REALLY good!

Same words but by ‘exaggerating’ the “REALLY”, it makes everything sound so much more special and “alive”!
Try ‘exaggerating’ things a little in your conversations and they will sound SO MUCH BETTER!

Let’s talk more about this another time, as it makes such a big difference ...
