  • 00:00:00 In Japanese culture, it is said that if you do not know the truth, you are a slave to a lie. Knowing the truth can be liberating, and can free one from bondage. There are many phrases in Japanese about the truth, some of which are benign and others which can be damaging. For example, in Colombia, people believe that the culebra (a type of snake) is a dish, and in Japan, people believe that rats cannot be eaten. These are examples of myths that block people's progress in understanding Latin America. My job is to dismantle these myths, one by one, in order to open people's minds to the possibilities that exist here. Latin American kids all grow up with myths about their own countries, and I am here to help them break free of them. Japanese people are considered to be smarter than people from other countries, and this is because they are genetically different. My abuelo, who was Colombian, used to tell my brother that he was taking him to Japan to raise him as a Japanese person. I eventually began to hear teachers say that Japanese people are particularly smart. I started to feel uncomfortable and threatened, so at the age of 10, I bravely asked my abuelo why Japanese people were so
  • 00:05:00 In this video, Japanese Yokozuna (champion) wrestler, Mitsuhide Hirata, discusses the importance of discipline in achieving success. He notes that, while Colombians are physically similar, the Japanese children are different in that the teacher, who is Japanese, played a significant role in bringing out the best in them. Hirata goes on to say that, even in the face of constant competition, Japanese children are always polite and disciplined, and that this is what sets them apart from their Colombian counterparts. He concludes by warning Colombian children not to be too boastful or unafraid of failure, as they will eventually lose out to those who are more disciplined.
  • 00:10:00 The Japanese word for "discipline" is yokou. According to the Japanese mindset, it is in the discipline where one finds success, so individuals who are disciplined often suffer today with the belief that the Japanese are still intelligent. In Japanese, I am still called a "chino," even though I was born and raised in Japan. Regulations state that I have to look at the visual to understand that the Japanese are not "chinos." I don't know anything about that. The Latin race is intelligent, but the topic of discipline is ending among our children to our adults. Discipline is very important for a nation's success. Words I cannot translate into Japanese in a second arrive. I can tell a friend on the phone in Japanese, "Imagine and View is seeing me in a second." I arrived shortly after saying that, if I told my friend this literally, my friend would be "to arrive in a second" has to be that he is falling from a building. Well, I'm there already. I'm there. Yes, already. I'm here. You are dead. I am dead. We'll see each other soon. It can't be, it can
  • 00:15:00 The video discusses the Japanese martial art of karate, which is often seen as peaceful. It discusses the philosophy behind the art, which is to never aggress against anyone, even if they are attacking you. This philosophy is often seen as strange in the Western world, where people are more used to seeing violence as the only way to solve conflicts. However, in Japan, this philosophy is common and seen as a sign of respect. The video also discusses the Colombian author Lleyton Hewitt, who has lived in Japan for many years and experienced this Japanese culture first-hand. He shares that although the Japanese are peaceful by nature, they can be violent when provoked. Finally, the video talks about the way that Japanese people look at foreigners. Even if a foreigner is behaving rudely, the Japanese will never attack them. They will instead take a distance and try to understand the foreigner's motives.

If you open a Japanese business today, you will be successful in 3 years. However, if you wait until your company is successful, it will be much harder to achieve. The true success is slow and sustained. Only true success can be celebrated with a show of joy. The Japanese believe that a grape is a gift from the gods, and that the season for grapes is only in summer. To save money on grapes, his family waits until the last day of the month to buy any. His grandfather always aplauded his success with a grape at the dinner table. Kenji tells his story of growing up in Japan and the lessons he learned about success.
