A Book "Poem of San Mateo" - 9

Fujie, despite her desperate dream of going back to US, had a tremendous amount of problems. English. She spent most of her education ages in Japan. She could not speak English. She was a Japanese now, and Japan is the defeated enemy country for US. Japanese immigration to US was next to impossible. Ordinary people might have given up thinking about the difficulties they have had. Here another interesting facts for successful people is that they always face to tremendous amount of difficulties which cause usual people to conclude that is impossible.

After finishing this "A Poem of San Mateo", I read a book written by President of Toyota America, who established "Lexus" brand. When he started to hear somebody else say it was impossible, he started to think there is a chance. When he was told "NO" from buyers, he recognize real negotiation started. It looks like people successful for something are the ones who can manage difficulties and denials.

Fujie did not give up. She thought there is a way. She studied legal system that time. She talked with American Generals who visited her father. She determined that if her sister still living in US wanted Fujie to join back to her, Fujie would be able to come back to US.

Hello Shaw, If there is a will there is a way. What a good way to do it Study the Law. If her sisters are in a way to help, yes that would help her.

Like the part about the President that started Lexus. When others said "no" that was when he started. Wow that is one way to think of things a little differently. Thinking outside the box. Good for him.

Hi Dan & Deanna,

It was interesting how people react to one same thing. Some get disappointed, others get encouraged. It was all mentality and mind set. But, we definitely can train ourselves to be positively react to anything.

Thank you for your comment.

Hi Hilary,

It was the case. Fujie did not speak English. She needed to study the language and master it. She later describes her inferiority complex speaking English with accent. It is also interesting to know about these immigrants.

Thank you for your comment.

Hi Shaw,

We can learn alot from Fujie's perserverance...to never give up hope and anything is possible.

We liked learning more about the Pres. of Toyota America. If he listened to everyone else, Lexus would have never came to be.

Many Blessings....
