What is your Ikigai “Reason for Being”? .
According to the Japanese, everyone has an ikigai. An ikigai is essentially ‘a reason to get up in the morning’. A reason to enjoy life.
Ikigai is at the convergence of four circles or primary elements:
What you Love (your passion)
What the World Needs (your mission)
What you are Good at (your vocation)
What you can get Paid for (your profession)
The word ikigai, that space in the middle of these four elements, is seen as the source of value or what make one’s life truly worthwhile. .
To discover you Ikigai, you must search inside, first find what you’re most passionate about. Then, you find the medium through which you can express that passion.
And once you find your Ikigai, your life will change. - 28 minutes ago
