Inamori: what is right to be human?

Results of life · career = mode of thinking (personality · philosophy) × effort (enthusiasm) × ability


Life and career outcomes are determined by the product of three elements: "mode of thinking", "effort" and "ability".


This "ability" and "effort" can be scored on a scale of 0 to 100, and they are multiplied.


In this way, compared with those who think they are competent, conceited and unwilling to work hard, those who think they are mediocre, but who work harder and with burning enthusiasm than anyone else can achieve better career results.


On top of that, multiply by "mode of thinking."


The so-called "way of thinking" is the attitude of life. Score from -100 to +100. Because it's a multiplication, a little negative "way of thinking" can lead to negative life outcomes.


So, in the life and work equation, ability and hard work are important, but the most important thing is to have the right way of thinking as a human being.


The right way to think is to think about what is right as a person.

01


As a man, what is right


The essence of philosophy lies in the phrase "what is right as a man".


"Be honest," "don't lie," "don't lie," "keep your promises," "love others," and so on. This is the simplest moral lesson that parents and teachers teach us as children.


People think, "isn't that something you take for granted?" In fact, no one practices these principles 100 percent.


Keep asking yourself "what is right as a person?" and have the courage to follow through on what is right. This is very important.


What leads to human success is a kind heart, which is expressed in words like "love", "sincerity" and "harmony".


We humans have this kind of kindness deep in our souls.


The so-called love heart, is to see the joy of others as their own joy;


The so-called sincere heart, is always thinking of doing something for society, for others;


The so-called harmonious heart, is not only hope for themselves, but also hope that all around the people can be happy.


The ideas that emerge from the hearts of love, truth, and harmony are the foundation of success.



02


Use altruism as a benchmark


In each and every one of us, there is a mixture of self-interest -- "whatever is good for you" -- and altruism -- "help others even if you sacrifice yourself."


When making a decision, even a little selfish will affect the accuracy of judgment, resulting in mistakes and missteps.


If we put our concern and sympathy for each other behind us and put the word "private" in the first place, then we won't get the help from the people around us and the work will not progress smoothly.


Moreover, such a thought, will make the team's moral decline, the vitality is weakened.


There is a selfish side of man that hopes to satisfy his desires.


When problems occur, people tend to blame others rather than themselves.


Anyone who is warned or rebuked by another person feels uncomfortable and immediately defends himself: "that's impossible! I have no intention of that."


To suppress such emotions, first listen to others' opinions humbly. In this way, you will realize that you have some problems.


For example, one person criticized: "corporate employees are bureaucratic."


Someone will immediately retort, "I don't."


However, the behavior of each of us does create a negative impression of corporate image.


We should be modest, honest heart, self-reflection, efforts to shape an ideal enterprise.


With this kind of mind, people can honestly accept the advice of others, like dry sand to absorb water, absorb more useful things, promote their own growth and progress.

03


Keep things simple


We have a tendency to overcomplicate things. However, in order to grasp the essence of things, it is necessary to simplify complex phenomena.


The simpler things are, the nearer they are to the truth, that is to say.


For example, what seems like a complicated operation is, in the end, nothing more than a thorough pursuit of the simple principle of "maximum sales and minimum expenses".


In daily work, we tend to think things too complicated, too difficult, there must be such a situation.


As long as we are not confused by superficial phenomena and can simplify things, we can make correct judgments according to the essence of things.


Pure heart to see the truth, clear pure heart can see the truth. In a mind full of self-interest, only complex things and phenomena can be seen.


For example, the selfish desire to ask yourself how much you can get in return complicates the simplest questions.


Our desire to make others think well of us is a self-serving motivation that tends to obscure the focus of the problem and delay its resolution.


We should try to keep a pure heart in order to observe and know things as they are. In a mind clouded by selfish desires, even the simplest problems seem very complicated.


If we observe the facts truthfully and carry out the truth even at the cost of self-sacrifice, there will be no problem that cannot be solved.

04


Little good is great evil, great good is heartless


The basic point of interpersonal relationship is to communicate with others with love. But that's not coddling.


Some people think their children are cute, but they spoil them too much.


This kind of education is very bad for children's growth. The indulgence of children is a kind of small good, the result of the children grow up to become bad, this is a great evil.


The same is true in the workplace.


The boss lacks faith and only caters to his subordinates without strict requirements. He seems to be very caring, but the result is to hurt his subordinates.


On the contrary, a boss who holds a belief and gives strict instructions to his subordinates may feel unamiable, but in the long run, he can cultivate his subordinates and make them grow, which is a great kindness.


When great goodness is performed, it seems to be unkind.


There is a fable; "The lion pushes his cub down the valley floor, and only the lion cub that can climb it alone is raised."


In the eyes of outsiders, harsh behavior, is to cultivate people into timber "love spur."


True love means thinking carefully about whether anything is actually good for the other person.



05


Personality = personality + philosophy


I use the formula "personality = personality + philosophy" to define personality.


Personality is a combination of innate character and philosophy learned and learned along the way.


That is to say, nature and philosophy make our personality-our spiritual character.


Everyone's innate "character" has its shortcomings, and the best "character" can not be perfect.


Therefore, we must learn and master a noble "philosophy" of life to improve our "personality".

1.Both sides of the coin


Reason and humanity, boldness and carefulness, tenderness and severity, seem to be opposites. But people can only really get things done if they combine these two extremes and let them work properly.


The so-called "both poles" is not "the mean", also can not be biased to one side, not both add by 2 to take the middle value. It's a combination of both extremes, and it can be used in different situations. It's very important to do that.


For example, in order to do our work better, we need to have both the rationality of scientists and the rich human touch of intimacy.


That is to say, in order to achieve the goal, when making specific plans, we must carry out thorough logical thinking, and in the process of achieving the goal, we need the outstanding personality charm of the leader to bring people around.


The thorough pursuit of logical rationality and touching the hearts of the deep friendship, and this nature of different poles, to do the job perfectly.


Boldness and carefulness may seem at odds with each other, but they must go both ways to get the job done perfectly.


This is like the silk thread woven into damask, if the vertical line is bold, then the horizontal line is careful, bold and careful interactive use.


Because bold, can be a powerful cause to move forward; And because of careful at the same time, can prevent failure.


It's not easy to be bold and careful at the beginning. But as long as in the daily work, in a variety of circumstances, consciously hone their own, these two extremes can be at the same time.





2.Have a frank heart


The so-called straightforward heart, is to admit their own shortcomings, so as to make efforts to humble and prudent attitude.


Capable people, impatient people, self-conscious people, tend not to listen to other people's opinions, and when they do, they refute them.


However, the real progress of the people, is with a frank heart, often listen to the opinions of others, often self-reflection, correct understanding of their own people.


With such a straightforward heart, this person will gather around people with the same mentality, so that the power can be condensed, can promote the cause to a better direction forward.


Harsh words are often helpful words for one's own development. I think it is very important to listen to others' opinions with an open mind.





3.Control the "three poisons"


Buddhism calls "greed, hatred and delusion" the "three poisons".


It is impossible for people to completely eliminate the "three poisons", but efforts can be made to suppress and control them.


For example, we need to make judgments about various things in our daily life. At this time, the instantaneous first reaction, often from instinct (" three poison ").


Therefore, before making a formal decision, reserve the knee-jerk judgment for a moment, and then ask yourself: "is my idea and judgment motivated by the 'three poisons' or selfish motives?"


Control the "three poisons", suppress selfish, altruistic heart will rise.


Selfless and altruistic, put yourself behind, first for the people and society to do their best.


When this altruistic heart appears, the "three poisons" of worry will dissolve, and life will be happy.
