Life Purpose / IKIGAI

What does ‘life purpose’ mean? It refers to the central motivating aims of your life, or the reasons you get up in the morning. Purpose can shape life decisions, affect behavior, shape goals, offer a sense of direction, and create meaning. Since different people identify with different things, walk on different paths, their life purpose will also be different. Moreover, purpose can also shift and change with time, due to changing priorities and experiences. 

Ikigai is a Japanese concept that essentially means “reason for being”. It combines the four fundamental components of life: passion, vocation, profession and mission. When you reflect on your ikigai, you may often ask yourself the following questions:

In seeking answers to these questions, you will eventually find something the world needs, that you also love, are good at, and you can be valued or paid for — and that, is your ikigai!
