WEEK 5 – JUNE 2009
It has been a sad week with the sudden passing of one of the greatest entertainers of our time – Michael Jackson. Here are a few inspirational messages from the legend himself.
As he said himself, “My goal in life is to give to the world what I was lucky to receive: the ecstasy of divine union through my music and my dance.”
In the end, the most important thing is to be true to yourself and those you love and work hard. Work like there’s no tomorrow. Train. Strive. Really train and cultivate your talent to the highest degree. Be the best at what you do. Get to know more about your field than anybody alive. Use the tools of your trade, if it’s books or a floor to dance on or a body of water to swim in. Whatever it is, it’s yours. That’s what I’ve always tried to remember.
In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. 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.
The greatest education in the world is watching the masters at work.
And the words from one of his best songs is a great message for us all.
I’m Starting With The Man In The Mirror,
I’m Asking Him To Change His Ways
No Message Could Have Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself And Then Make The Change
Never can say goodbye Michael.
Rest in peace and may your music and legacy forever reign on Earth.
