Why is it important to teach all people, especially those starting their careers, about the seven virtues of Bushido?
I will reiterate the point again, as it seems necessary.
Even my fellow martial arts practitioners recoil when the term “Bushido” is mentioned.
Even people in the martial arts world seem detached from Bushido, lacking an understanding of its essence.
There is no distinction between martial arts and sports anymore.
This is evidence of the influence of a culture focused on winning, losing, and personal gain, which has been skewed towards Western values.
So, what value does Bushido hold?
I want to discuss the seven virtues of Bushido, the beautiful way of life that flows at the core of the Japanese people.
If we reevaluate and internalize these virtues, there is no doubt that we can achieve a successful life.
Yes! I want Bushido to be reconsidered as a philosophy of success and as a law of attraction for happiness.
The reason is that successful salarymen who have reached positions like department heads,
executives, or company presidents tend to possess a certain level of charisma and have internalized the seven virtues of Bushido to some extent.
