Infuse your voice with enthusiasm.Wash out bad language and sarcasm. It’s not impressive or funny to anybody other than you.

Study a new word from the dictionary each day, You can also take the vocabulary tests in Readers Digest or buy a book on increasing your working vocabulary. This will take you at least a year but you will grow intellectually.
Pay attention to body language. Fidgeting, picking at your face and clothes, and crossing and uncrossing of your legs are some of the most common and obvious signs of nervousness. Consciously eliminate them from your behavior pattern.
Be nice to people always. Practicing kindness in the face of challenges is a sign of maturity, class and intelligence. Remember that you also have a lot to learn from other people. Being kind to them will allow you access to their lives and experience.
