Find Your #Ikigai

Being able to translate our #Ikigai into actions can help us charter the roads of uncertainty that lays ahead. When the mind is focused, the effort of channelling all the #positive energies into making the world into a #happy, #sustainable and a #healthy place for all, will be most successful.

“Ikigai” is a #Japanese concept that means “a reason for being”. The word refers to having a direction or purpose in life, that which makes one’s life worthwhile, and towards which an individual takes spontaneous and willing actions giving them satisfaction and a sense of meaning to life.

With our current predicament being that of being stuck at home, continuously working towards actualising business outcomes, we sure need to find some time for ourselves. Our #Ikigai is what will help us keep focus and make ourselves happy. This is a good time to reflect on our actions and rework on the objectives.

“Our Ikigai is different for all of us, but one thing we have in common is that we are all searching for meaning” – Hector Garcia, Author of ‘Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life.’

Take this time and use it to find your ikigai. Let’s make the #world a better place!
