What I Wish to Convey Through Serialization (1)

New York, N.Y. I am always happy Thank you because it can be difficult

july 6, 2019

People around me ask, “Why did you decide to start the column series in such a busy day?” When I was over 80 years old, every time I talked about my life, so much people said that it was “interesting and funny,” so I thought I should write it.

Most of the stories in my life come to the conclusion that “One can do absolutely anything” and “There are unlimited possibilities in life.” I hope it will be useful for young people in the future. I am writing in Japanese is childish because I have lived in America so long so please forgive me.

Sometimes you come up with an idea. After all it is good to come up with an idea. If you can’t think of it in yourself, you can’t go out and do it. But I’ve done a lot of things, considering only what I really want to do and what I can do for others. And if you can do it for someone, you’re happy and you’re really grateful, let’s do it! And take action.

It’s important to take action immediately. Does it make people happy, is it good for people, or is it all that they want to do with ego? This difference is big. Unless you and others are happy, time is wasted.

For example, when an American sees Kabuki and is impressed, this is good for people. To move a person’s heart is t=a wonderful thing. But this is all I think about. Thinking about loss or profit is a human society idea, and in my case, it is only good for people.

Discard the ego and work hard

And I think it’s important to never give up. The solution comess formsomewhere else to you if you do not give up If I was looking for a method without giving up, I felt that the solution would come to pick me up from the other side, while I was doing it, it was neither ah nor ah.

The other day, I had a really incredible experience, and in fact, I had my passport at stolen in Paris, I had no way to return, I desperately worked hard, and after that I needed to recreate my passport, but this is difficult. was. Even at this time, uh, I thought it was important not to give up seriously. did=fficult challengre==de fromt he Universe.

In America, it’s not lke in Japan. It’s very difficult. You stand in line where it says. Without any reasonable reasons whatesoever,

They’ve been in a long line since the morning, but for some strange reason they’re the last to be turned, or they don’t do what they said they would do … Sometimes you forget about me or you lose something.

On the first day, I couldn’t get my passport in the desired form on the first day, and it would be difficult if I didn’t get a passport the next day, so the next day I’ll be at 8:30 in the morning, and finally at 6:30 in the evening.

I had to wait 5 hours for just for this one step, so I think I’ll give up on the way and give up if it’s normal, but I don’t give up for some reason. It may be one of my characteristics that I never give up.

Whatever you do, if you want to do it, believe that you can do it. In my case, there are always tough things on the way. IN MY S=EXPERIENCE, NOTHING COMES EASY OR SMOOTHLY. IT IS ALWAYS DIFFICULT AND CHALLENGING. BUT I NEVER COMPROMISE UNTIL THE END.

There is no easy way to go. I never thought of myself as a special person. I think he is a normal person. However, if I think something is different, I’ll never be able to make a compromise on the way, and then stop on the way. I’m absolutely not satisfied with this. To the last.

IT’S IMPORTANT TO BE HAPPY. IF YOU HAVE ANY COMPLAINTS, YOU HAVE TO RECOGNIE IT AND WORK HARD.MOST GVE UP. THEY SAY, “I CANNOT DO THIS.” BUT YOU DO IT ANYWAY -YOU NEVER CONDISER DEFEAT. YOUR REFUSE TO GIVE UP FAIILURE IS NOT AN OPTION. THIS IS IMPORTNAT. DO IT WITH EVERY INCHE OF YOUR BODY FROMT HE TOP OF YOUR HEAD TO THE TIP OF YOUR TOES.

After all, it’s important to be happy in life, so I think it’s okay for happy people to give up, but if you’re dissatisfied, you should do your best. Many people think that they can’t do it, but it’s common for people to understand if they don’t try it. People usually say “I can’t do that” first.Then there is the word “Gamushara”. I think it’s important to be grumpy. The word “gamushara” may have a negative atmosphere, but it is important. Anyway, it means to act over the whole body.(Next: = July 13 issue =)
