Transcript of Michael Jackson
Increase of Self-Awareness and Self-Knowledge
Michael Joseph Jackson was born on August 29, 1958, in Gary, Indiana, to an African-American working-class family. His father, Joseph Jackson, had been a guitarist but had put aside his musical aspirations to provide for his family as a crane operator. Believing his sons had talent, he molded them into a musical group in the early 1960s.
Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American singer-songwriter, dancer, businessman and philanthropist. Often referred to by the honorific nickname "King of Pop", or by his initials MJ.
Michael's tragic flaw is that he didn't accept himself, he kept trying to be things that he wasn't. Even though he was a world-wide favorite pop star he wasn't happy. He tried drugs, bleaching his skin, getting all these plastic surgeries, and even trying to be a little kid.
In the last 25 years, it is estimated he made more than $300 million from his own music royaltues, and another $400 million from concerts and the Beatles catalogue.But his spending, which began to get surreal in the late 1980s, topped his income. By 1999, he was earning $11 million a year but spending $31 million.He bought a 2,500-acre property near Santa Ynez, Calif. for $17 million in 1989, spending millions more to turn it into a fantasyland he called the Neverland Ranch. He installed a zoo, an amusement park, a movie theatre and a miniature train system. It cost him $5 million a year to staff and maintain.Jackson was as much as $200 million in debt.

Michael was not aware of his addiction that he had well over a decade before his death and the damage that the prescription-strength painkillers and tour organisers were doing to him not just affecting him but affecting his family.
