This is how Japanchanged their mentality
" My favorite getaway location is Japan and there are a number of reasons. I have learned a lot of things from the Japanese and I see them as an inspiration. I went to Japan for the first time in 1979 and I was so impressed by the culture and courtesy of the people. It was strange for me to witness, even at the tollgate, that men who collect money from passengers, on behalf of the government, bow to as many vehicles as they collect money from. It was a big surprise for me because this was not their personal money but the level of dedication was amazing. That courtesy is seen everywhere you go, from the airport to the restaurant and that embodies the type of person I am. From the early 80s, I used to go to Japan for business and even after that, I would spend some more time moving around to see more of the culture and their way of life influenced me as a person and Coscharis as well" He once revealed to Forbes Africa
Little Wonder many attest to his extreme humility and despite his billions dollars rating, he still goes about with public microphone preaching Christ to lost souls in the Streets of Nigeria
"I have lived better part of my life ion Japan as young man, today I now think like them, they made me detest what Africans call "African time"
I CANT STAND MEN WHO DO NOT RESPECT TIME. You can lost money and get it back but lost time is gone forever
I learned decent time management from them. It is a way of living for them. Respect for time is paramount. If a Japanese man gives you an appointment for 1pm, before that time he is there. They don’t come 15 minutes before or 10 minutes after. Once it is time of the date they knock on your door. If he comes two minutes late, he apologizes for almost 10 minutes for being late because it is simply not accepted in the culture.
Today I have learn the value of making a promise and keeping it ,if I cannot I WILL not promise and come with excuse, it is not allowed in Japan"
-This is no doubt an inspiring story
