This story was very encouraging and gave a hint to achieve successful results. Referring to a book,”Isshun-no-Kazeninare” in Japanese or “Change to brink wind”, the speaker exhorted the audience to the power of positive words. She also talked about her experiences. When she was a university student and made mistakes in a part-time job, she was showered with negative words by her boss. So, she was scared of mistakes, but she continued making mistakes. On the other hand, she was taught the importance of positive words by her office doctor, and she experienced that her office environment was improved.
She also talked about the mechanism on how positive words improve people’s performance in the view of the brain science. The members were very persuaded to use positive words.”
