Why Express Is Actually Better than the Danger of Impress

What is so important about the difference in the impact of the word, express, and the word, impress, when it comes to effective communications?

Consider this…express is all about conveying a thought or even a feeling in words.  Certainly, there are other meanings but that’s the key one here.

On the other hand, impress is about (for our purposes here) making someone else feel something.  While they could feel admiration or respect, they could also feel disdain or disrespect if the person trying to impress them comes across in an artificial way.

There’s the importance in the difference between the two words when trying to communicate effectively with another person.

The following video makes it clear why expressing yourself appropriately is so much better and less dangerous than trying to impress another person.

How are you going to focus more on expressing yourself rather than trying to impress other people?
