Some interesting notes:

The positive word WILL tops with 27 occurrences. Then we have FREEDOM with 20 occurrences, but if you add also the word FREE which is found 5 times, you have 25 times in total. The next words are ABLE, JUSTICE, SATISFIED each found 8 times. Therefore the top positive words in the speech of Martin Luther King, Jr. are: WILL, FREEDOM and FREE, ABLE, JUSTICE, SATISFIED. All this positive words are highly connected in the speech. This words will push your brain to make connections like: With WILL you can get FREEDOM. You are ABLE to get FREEDOM. JUSTICE means FREEDOM. Only FREEDOM can make you SATISFIED. Being SATISFIED is connected with FREEDOM.

Sincerely I was expecting the word FREEDOM to top first, but instead I found the word WILL that tops 27 times. Which gives a clear message to the brain: The WILL is FREEDOM. In many very empowering texts I found the word WILL to top. The WILL of a person is very powerful. Analyzing the positive words of the text I can draw the following conclusions that I could not spot, if I would not focus on positive words: the target of the speech was the WILL of the present moment of the people. The WILL was first, then second the focus was on FREEDOM. At that time, to this WILL was given a name and that name was FREEDOM. But the secret was about empowering the energy of the WILL of the people, not the energy of freedom.

Another surprising discovery was to see that the word SATISFIED tops in the first 5 words (if we consider FREEDOM and FREE as one word). During speech the people heard this word 8 times. They already heard the word WILL for 27 times and the word FREEDOM for 25 times. The word SATISFIED make the brain think: Your WILL needs to be SATISFIED. It transforms the WILL into a necessity that need to be SATISFIED.

The results of this research on the famous speech I Have a Dream of Martin Luther King, Jr., are amazing for me. It it exactly what I intuitively known. You can deconstructs a text and discover the secrets of the text by focusing on positive words. Connecting the positive words, thinking about them, shows you all you need to know. You immediately find out why one speech empowers the brain and another go unnoticed. Positive words always top above all negativity, clearing everything and empowering you.
