Inner Keys to Success:
- TO DO WHAT YOU LOVE, YOU MUST FIND YOUR BURNING DESIRE: Michael Jackson was someone who was fortunate enough to recognize his potential and passion very early in his journey. Music was like love at first sight, and it touched him on so many different levels. Through his live performances, dance moves, and the voice that turned the heads of millions, it was extremely clear that he was VERY passionate about what he did. This love and desire to be a musician is what ignited The King of Pop to pursue and conquer his dreams to such a high level of excellence.
- ALONG WITH TALENT, YOU MUST UNDERSTAND COMMITMENT: Michael Jackson was born with great natural gifts and he practiced them to perfection. He was also raised by a commander style father who was known for extreme discipline and structure. This led Michael to continuously work on his skills to such an extreme level that he would be bound to succeed, and he did! He was so talented and so well prepared that he would always leave his audiences breathless. "I'm never pleased with anything, I'm a perfectionist, it's part of who I am."
- ALWAYS KEEP HIGH PERFORMING ROLE MODELS AROUND TO KEEP YOU THINKING BIG: MJ was born into a family that was driven to pursue careers as musicians. Although he faced much adversity by his aggressive father, he kept his mind inspired by looking up to his role models, and his biggest role models were the late and great James Brown, as well as his mother. He would join his older brothers in the Jackson 5 band where he was mentored, and subsequently motivated to do so well. Having such a high level of motivation and inspiration in his life just added to his already amazing talent and work ethic. “The greatest education in the world is watching the masters at work.”
"In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream, and in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe." - Michael Jackson
