Learn the 3 Word Attack Skills that turn Words into Friends!
Words were invented to help you ...
Without them you can't understand other people or be understood. They make your life work. They make it richer and more rewarding!
So it turns out, you don't need another word attack skill. Why attack something as useful as a word? You're better off getting friendly with words instead.
Keep reading to discover three, so-called, 'word attack' strategies that will turn words into your friends. It's simple. You'll change what you think, and what you do, and you'll get essential word skills you can't live without!
If you want to succeed in life, you need good speaking, reading, and writing skills
Words are a lifeline. They connect you to your goals in a way few other skills can. In fact, your word skills impact your ability to thrive in life at least as much as your health does, if not more!
When you have good word skills ...
You can connect with people in more profound way. Speaking, reading, writing, these are the skills that make us human! And extraordinary skills can make us extraordinary!
What happens if your skills aren't all they can be?
You feel held back. You read and write too slowly which impacts your ability to get things done. You don't say or write what you mean, and you fail to make things happen when you're misunderstood. You often become confused and confusing.
So how do you turn things around?
You don't attack words, you befriend them! You want to feel comfortable and confident around words. You want to know they won't let you down. You want them to have your back when it really matters.
Making words friends is easier than you think!
If you struggled in school, you may have decided you're doomed when it comes to your word skills.
However, your lack of success has nothing to do with a lack of ability, and everything to do with a lack of opportunity.
But the story doesn't have to end there. It's not too late to get the skills you need, or to help someone else get skills.
It turns out, you can make friends with words in much the same way that you make friends with people!
Let's look at 3 simple ways to turn words into friends …
#1 - The Greeting (otherwise known as word attack skill number one)
How do you greet someone you're getting to know? You read their body language! Maybe you give them a handshake? a hug? And while you're doing that, you say their name out loud, so you'll remember it.
When you're getting to know words, do something similar. Read the word, and say its name out loud.
#2 - The Introduction (otherwise known as word attack skill number two)
What do you want to know about a new friend aside from their name? Where they work? What they do for a living? What family they have? You ask them questions, or maybe you ask other people about them? Words represent ideas. They have work to do. So you want to look at the work a word is doing so you can get to know it a little better.
What's more, just as people have relatives, words also have words that are related to them! Do you remember hearing about word families like sought, bought, thought, and brought? Related words can help you get to know your word a little better. Maybe you don't know a word but you know one of its relatives. That can be helpful.
If you want to know more about a word, do some research, ask someone. So for example, if you read the word 'ambidextrous' and you don't know what it means, you might look it up and learn that it means to be able to use both hands.
#3 - Planning to meet again (otherwise known as word attack skill number three)
If you're going to see your new friend again, you'll need to know where they live, or at least know how to get in touch with them. So, it's time to write something down: a phone number, an address.
If it's a word and not a person you're getting to know, I suggest you use pen and paper, not your keyboard. Can you remember all the numbers in your phone? Probably not. We remember things better when we write them down. So write down your word, and while you're at it, why not write it in a sentence that makes it's meaning clear?
