Why We Work?

Everyone has their own reasons for being a part of society and working. For many people, work is a means to earn a living, gain experience, acquire knowledge, or make money. It's often about personal gain and getting something for ourselves. However, there's another perspective – one where work is not just about what we receive but what we can give back to society. At Tokyo Consulting Group, we believe that instead of working solely for ourselves, we, as employees, strive to contribute something valuable to society and others, including our customers. This approach sees professionals as those who can create value for society through their interactions with customers.

What We Give is What We Get

Individuals who focus solely on receiving may find themselves striving without achieving their desired outcomes. The root cause of not receiving often stems from the feeling that our giving to customers and society is not reciprocated. Our inherent self-centered thinking can lead us to blame external factors, like evaluations from superiors, for our failures to achieve our goals. However, a crucial realization is that we cannot expect to receive more than what we give. Recognizing this principle underscores the importance of making continual contributions to society. Upholding this approach, we aspire to create meaningful and lasting impacts, leading to abundant rewards in various forms, including financial gains, knowledge, and experience. Guided by this philosophy, we remain dedicated to our commitment of contributing meaningfully to society through our valued customers.

What is Success?

Accomplished Individuals are often associated with wealth, money, and social status. However, achieving true success doesn't always demand excessive hard work; rather, it hinges on understanding why successful individuals attain their goals: continuously adding value to society. To achieve this, we must contemplate two critical questions:

1. Who should receive the value we provide? (Who are our customers?)

2. What kind of value should we offer them?

By consistently pondering these questions and giving back to society through our customers, we can attain success. However, if driven solely by a strong desire for personal gain, we risk becoming self-centered, focusing only on selling products or services without comprehending our customers' genuine needs. Consequently, we may lose touch with the ever-changing demands of society, hindering our ability to achieve sustained success. To thrive continuously in society, it is crucial to remain customer-centric and genuinely committed to adding value to others. Embracing this perspective is the key to genuine and enduring success."

Gratitude

Knowing that you are successful can give you a strong feeling of happiness. Happiness means "a state of equanimity of mind". No matter how much wealth one may have, one who is subject to selfish elfishness cannot maintain peace of mind and sustained happiness. If you can sustain your happiness, you will naturally feel grateful. You will naturally be able to appreciate that you are alive now and that you are being kept alive. I think it is natural to first feel gratitude toward the parents who gave birth to you. It makes me want to do filial piety from the bottom of my heart. Also, you will be able to appreciate the joy of living in this society. This kind of gratitude will make you aware of your own ′′ mission ′′ clearly. By being aware of what we live for, what we work for, and the mission given to us, we can continue to contribute to society.
