“Good words are worth much, and cost little.”
George Herbert, the Welsh-born poet, said these words back in the 17th century. And even today, his words hold relevance more than ever. Maybe the importance of certain skills never decreases with time. One such example is the Communication skill.
Why talk, when you can communicate?
Talking and communicating are two entirely different things. ‘To talk’ means that to utter words, to merely convey something to the other person. On the other hand, ‘To communicate’ means that the uttered words are conveyed to the other person effectively. That is, the other person not only hears what is said but also has understood it.
The purpose of a conversation between two people is to convey the spoken words effectively. If done so, it can help you build great relationships and grab new opportunities. Hence, don’t talk but communicate.
Your way of communication really matters
Your parents have always taught you to communicate respectfully with elders. They have taught you to be courteous to your friends. Have you ever thought about it? Because your way of communicate is very important. In fact, it is a basic etiquette.
Thus, good communication skills must be acquired. If you talk well, good and worthy connections will be built with ease. Such connections can prove to be helpful not only in your personal life but also in your professional life.

Even in your college life, such skills can enable you to gain the attention of your college mates. It can also help you to gain the trust of your professors. Basically, a promising and bring college life!
Opportunity knocks on the door of the deserving
You might have heard or read this quote many times. Apparently, it holds the truth. You must be a deserving candidate in order to get the opportunities.

Good communication skills can help you become one. They fill you with confidence to create opportunities.
