I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr
The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream — about unity, about the long struggle for equality, about nonviolent protest, about judging your fellow Americans by what they are and not by the color of their skin — touched people of all races and ethnicity.
It was both what he said how he expressed himself, that still distinguishes Dr. King as an iconic speaker allowing his messages to resonate with people of all ages after 50 years.
Dr. King did not rely on a Teleprompter. Much of his speech was basically ad lib. It was delivered from the heart and the gut, rather than from the speechwriter spinning a story.
Remember, being who you are, believing in your message as well as authentically and passionately sharing with listeners will insure you to connect with your audience and inspire action!
