On this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I'm reminded of a word that we use a lot around our agency: passion.
It would be impossible to watch Dr. King's 1963 speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial and believe that he was anything less than passionate about his dream.
More than 50 years after he spoke during the March on Washington, his thoughts still inspire and stir. His impactful words, his delivery, his focus and emotional intensity all came together in that moment and left a lasting imprint on humanity.
Passion is contagious. It excites and moves people to action. And when it's the force behind a sincere message, it can be hard to stop.
Are you passionate about what you're doing? Do you believe in your work and your message so strongly that people around you can feel it? And how are you expressing that passion to a larger audience?
