Michael Jackson Inspiration Mind Map

  1. 1. Michael Jackson InspirationMichael Jackson has and will continue to inspire millions with his unique talents. This mind map captures and highlightsmany of his traits presented in four key areas.QualitiesMichael Jackson offered clarity – his audience would “get” what he was about within seconds and then be treated to anavalanche of over-delivery. He blended complexity with simplicity; from comprehensive dance moves and stage settingsdown to trademark and memorable props like the glove and hat for the song “Billie Jean”. Audiences would know thesong on seeing the hat and anticipate the brilliant dance routine including famous moonwalk. Hours of refinement wentinto crafting the perfect performance. Michael Jackson blended space, timing and presence to create the idealatmosphere. He elevated his performances from basic song delivery to full stage productions; from a concert to a show.He contemplated the bigger picture package, tapping the senses and emotions of the crowd and leaving a lastingimpression.MastersAs his own best critic, Michael Jackson had unbreakable self-belief and 100% commitment to improvement, throughpractice and patience. He aimed at peak performances; his dedication included a desire to not only reach his best, hewanted to be the best and that meant constant innovation, invention and reinvention. Michael Jackson sought and drewinspiration from other unique and talented greats such as James Brown. He studied how and why they excelled andfound his own unique ways to stand out, to shine and to lead.ValueMichael Jackson delivered exceptional value because he cared; he was committed to making a difference to every singlefan and never lost sight of the bigger picture – the worldwide stage, including desires for global peace, harmony andunity. He loved the planet and its people and wanted to make the world a better place; his values set a wonderfulexample for others. Through high standards and the desire to optimise his performances he aimed to always betterhimself. Each album, each song, each concert, each video, was an opportunity to set a whole new level. The video forthe song “Thriller” is a perfect example – he wanted more than a pop video; he wanted a mini film production; thegreatest value-orientated performance ever seen.UniqueMichael Jackson pushed boundaries and shifted dimensions. He added levels that never existed. If you hear one of hissongs or see one of his videos or stage performances you’ll always recall it – that was the impact and the memorability
