Yataro Iwasaki, founder of Mitsubishi Corporation, Japan, tells us how important to be passionate and visionary. It is not just mental status, it is not just clean and decorative words to be successful. His personal history tells us clearly about bitter actuality walking the road to be successful.
Yataro Iwasaki was born in Lower Class Samurai family, who usually could not get education provided by local government that time in Japan. That did not discourage him at all when he was very young. He educated himself while he was selling bird cages to help his family's income in his teens. Later, he nominated himself to study in Tokyo (Edo it was called that time) and could study in Tokyo. His academic achievement drew higher class management, and he was selected to be a Tokyo economy staff of the local government. His father was arrested when he was in Tokyo and protecting his father and advocating his fathers innocence, he was fired, first time.
He and his father were put in a jail for a while, after he was released, he reclaimed his innocence and ability and hired back. Higher class Samurai colleagues did not enjoy Iwasaki posted in higher position than themselves. Iwasaki was again accused for no reason and fired again.
My passion belongs to the promotion of my own business, SOHO. Future of economic growth and happiness in business lays on this form of business instead of being employed and tied down despite of his own preferences. So, blessed are the entrepreneurs who struggle to be successful. The futures is ours. It is my passion.
I used too much on Iwasaki, I need to wait for next post explaining my vision. Hope you understand.
