Human quality can be
interpreted in many ways, but I
think it is a person's energy.
Each person has a different
amount of energy, which I
believe is mostly congenital.
The sources of energy
are physical strength and mental
strength (vitality). During
growth, people can improve their
physical strength through sports
and mental strength (vitality)
by setting goals.
in sports or setting goals often
depends on energy with which
people are born. However, it
does not mean that the amount of
energy is always decided when we
are born. Actually, there are
many artists who did not have
much physical strength but later
succeeded, like becoming
national treasures, with mental
example is Henry Kissinger, who
served as U.S. Presidential
Assistant and Secretary of State
about 40 years ago. He worked
around the world and was highly
respected by everyone. Mr.
Kissinger once said, "Why does a
day have only 24 hours?" He
looked full of energy, and I was
shocked by his attitude of
overwhelming others. Since then,
I started thinking what energy

thousands of people through
research work and found that a
life consists of three phases.
In the first phase, when young,
people get interested and
involved into sports, study, or
other special field such as art.
In the second phase, people
decide what to do after
graduating from schools. They
aim to get stable jobs, like
government employees, or work
for major companies.

choose to join medium-sized
companies and work their way to
the top or start their own
businesses, such as venture
firms, in the future. Even some
start their career in sports or
art. Whatever course they
choose, this would be their
the third phase, people prove
what they are capable of in the
course selected. If you stay
stopped or step back in this
phase, you are out of question.
Always step forward and work or
study hard even sometimes
without sleeping. This is
because your human quality as a
professional will be determined
based on what you have learned
from such tough experiences.
