  • This is something that I, myself did not do before moving to Japan did not become that person before I moved to Japan.

  • And I wish that I did.

  • All right.

  • Hey, guys, Welcome back to my channel.

  • Your home away from home.

  • I did changed my tagline just a little bit.

  • Today we're gonna be talking about the kind of person that you should not be.

  • If you plan on moving to Japan, If you're this type of person, gotta fix it.

  • There's a lot of you who want to move to Japan.

  • Whether you want to teach or study abroad, you're moving for career or you will be located.

  • There is even people that have no choice but to move.

  • I just wanna warn you about the difficulties in the complications of moving abroad and the type of person that you are going to have to become in order to thrive here, not just in Japan, but anywhere around the world.

  • If you're planning on moving, I just think this is a very touchy topic through living here and experiencing everything.

  • This is what I have learned.

  • Being the type of person to actually make it here has some people up and leave.

  • They write blogged posts or make videos about why they never want to live in Japan again.

  • There's so many negative things that go on in the back of people's heads that keep them from staying here long term.

  • And I think that there is a lot that mentally that someone has to go through in order to survive Japan.

  • This is what you should strive to become if you want to live here long term and make it animal in the most positive way possible.

  • Number one.

  • You're not willing to learn the basic language of where you are going to be moving.

  • You're not willing.

  • Teoh.

  • Learn basic Japanese, and I think that you should have that mindset where you are going to learn the language and just do it.

  • I feel like there's so many resources out there, especially for the Japanese language.

  • There's a lot of websites.

  • You can check out one of my videos on here.

  • I wrote about some top websites that are great for learning Japanese, but you don't have to be fluid.

  • I think people automatically assume that you have to be fluent toe live in any country.

  • It definitely helps out a lot.

  • I'm still struggling with it.

  • I'm not at the advanced level.

  • I met like an intermediate level.

  • I mean, I studied it from high school to college.

  • It's helped me out so much living here, and it's put me in a more positive mind set when it comes to living in this country.

  • If you are not willing toe, learn the language at all, even basic stuff like Where's the toilet?

  • I'd like a hamburger and a side of fries, please.

  • Like just the basic stuff that can get you through small situations is enough to really put a lot of pressure to the side and make you feel a little more comfortable about living in the country that you're going to be working in or living in or studying.

  • And whatever you're doing, it's gonna make life so much easier.

  • I had a friend that lived here for 10 years, and she didn't know like any Japanese, barely any Japanese, and the thing that bothered me so much is that she would speak English to people at restaurants or on the phone, and they didn't understand her, and she would just repeat herself.

  • Look, they did understand her, and it just seemed really frustrating.

  • So just try to learn, okay?

  • Don't be like her to Stone course would be great if you could learn some of the language for travel.

  • But living is just You really should try.

  • Just try number two thing that you should not be is triggered by everything.

  • This is basically YouTube that I'm talking about.

  • There's a lot of people are just triggered by everything people that can't have it their way or if it's not this way, Then I'm out like that kind of person that just gives up on everything or complains about everything that has to do with this country or the country that you're living in.

  • You're gonna have a very negative experience.

  • Now I'm gonna tell you a story.

  • I had a friend who was working here for a short time, and she went out with her co workers and her co worker, I think, is from London or something.

  • I don't know where he was from, but he was not from Japan.

  • If I remember right, they went to Hooters in Japan and they ordered some wings and the wings didn't have enough sauce on them.

  • He just got so upset about the wings.

  • Now that was just like the beginning of it.

  • So he got really upset with the wings that didn't have enough sauce on.

  • He's like, I want you to take it back.

  • He was very rude.

  • He was just that type of person and he was speaking in English and the girl could barely speak English and she was getting frustrated and worried and scared cause he was yelling at her.

  • And then he got frustrated because she didn't speak English to him.

  • And she was misunderstanding things and she brought back new wings and they weren't what he wanted.

  • And he just started screaming and causing a huge scene in front of everybody at the restaurant.

  • And it was embarrassing to my friend, If you're that type of person that so picky, you get hotheaded really easily and you get triggered by every little thing about the way Japanese people do.

  • That's about the way Japanese people do that.

  • It just can create a very negative mindset.

  • And I feel like we've all been there, like we've all complained like, Why do people do?

  • Is I can't believe people do this.

  • I can't handle this.

  • There's been times where we had mental breakdowns just from moving abroad and, you know, immersing ourselves in a new culture.

  • There has been a phase where we've just complained about everything.

  • But if you can work on yourself in a way that's more productive, we've all we're all human.

  • There's times where we've been frustrated, especially people who live abroad.

  • There's lots of frustrations that come with it, but you have to have patience.

  • And I think that's the number one thing.

  • If you're going to get anything out of this video, if you come to Japan, have patients, learn how things work.

  • Don't get upset about the way you know culture does something You decided to move here.

  • The culture is not gonna be your culture.

  • So you have to keep reminding yourself that every day the way they do things is going to be very, very different and you have toe have patience.

  • If it's anything out of this video that you get, it's patients.

  • Of course, I have struggled with this at one point in my life.

  • When I first moved here, I and have the type of personality where I'm very open minded understanding.

  • There haven't restorations in the past, and I still complain from time to time.

  • But if you're always doing it and you're always frustrated and angry and upset at everybody that you come across in this country, you are never going to be happy.

  • You just need to have some resilience.

  • Is that a word?

  • You need to be resilient.

  • You need to bounce back.

  • You need to catch yourself.

  • You need to just calm down.

  • Do it till if you are really loud and obnoxious.

  • Likes to play pranks, run around.

  • Knocked things over.

  • I'm just gonna say it.

  • Logan.

  • Paul, if you're a Logan, Paul, don't come to Japan.

  • Please, God, don't come to Japan.

  • We all know what happened.

  • Logan.

  • Paul.

  • In Japan, he is videos up.

  • I don't even know they're still up of him.

  • Just causing chaos across Japan.

  • There was, I think, a recent video that went viral of some foreigners that were being loud, drunk and laughing and crazy.

  • And there's some really crazy foreigners that just have zero respect for people, and it just causes a lot of problems and a lot of rest and I just if you're gonna go out for a night of fun, just just be mindful and try to be as mindful as possible.

  • Glad with somebody that can, you know, take care of you and, you know, bring you back to yourself because it's not going to go well, it's just not gonna go well, honestly, like as a foreigner is, especially Americans were, like, automatically very loud.

  • We talk and all that stuff.

  • And there have been times when people would touch me and be like, I need to be a little bit more quieter on the train and I would kind of forget that, like, my voice is like, really loud.

  • So just kind of be mindful of the way you say things and how loud you are.

  • There are people that speak English here, not everybody, but you never know who's listening, so be careful with what you say.

  • And don't be super obnoxious where you're like jumping on people on the train and yelling and screaming like that one viral video.

  • I don't know if I'll be able to post it in here, but they probably look it up if you want is just a lot of chaos surrounded that video, and it just worries people when it comes to the Olympics and what it's gonna be like and all that stuff.

  • Just be mindful of yourself in your actions and you'll be fine.

  • Number four.

  • This is something that I myself did not do before moving to Japan and did not become that person before I moved to Japan.

  • And I wish that I did, because there's so much that I would have done better.

  • Obviously, I don't regret moving here the way that I did and learning things the way that I did.

  • I learned a lot of things the hard way.

  • But if you're gonna move to this country, have a basic plan.

  • And I'm not talking about a life plan or, like every little detailed don't design your exact path because that's not gonna happen, especially when you're young and you don't know what you want to do with your life.

  • Like just don't stress about that.

  • I think the main thing is to have an intention of why you're moving to Japan.

  • What are you going to get out of this move?

  • What's your purpose?

  • Where do you see yourself in 10 years, five years, three years, two months.

  • You don't have to have a clear idea, but figure out why you're moving and what the purpose is and what you hope to gain out of this experience.

  • If you have this intention and if we set an intention before you move, then you're gonna have a much easier and more positive time.

  • For example, if you have the intention to grow and learn about other cultures and learn more about yourself, then that is a valid reason.

  • And you're gonna Once you set that intention and you say it out loud, you're gonna go there and you're gonna be mindful of the culture and you're going to be embracing what people do.

  • And you're not gonna get hotheaded or frustrated if you have an intention.

  • So my intention is to learn more about the education system in Japan.

  • My intention is to become fluent in Japanese so I can become a translator.

  • You have these goals and this this vision, So open your mind to a variety of of intentions in a variety of what you see your life after this experience, or you should have an idea of what is this is going to bring it what this experience is going to bring you so you can journal about it so you can keep track of it so you can learn more about how you as a person, changed so you can learn how you are going to grow through this process.

  • That is all I have to say in this video.

  • I thought it was a very important video because there's a lot of people that are thinking about moving to Japan for multiple reasons.

  • These are a lot of things that I've experienced, and I've seen how people react to certain situations.

  • You have to be very resilient.
