In Japan, IKIGAI is ‘The REASON TO GET UP IN THE MORNING’. The Japanese way to finding your purpose in life.
What’s your purpose? As you look at yourself in the bathroom mirror each morning, what do see? Do you ever ask yourself ”what’s the reason I get up in the morning and do what I do”?. Most people run on autopilot WASH, SPIN, DRY, and REPEAT. I hear and see it all the time, clients come to me with what I call the “bathroom stare” when I ask them what is it they truly want? Most can’t answer.
I witnessed a ‘light bulb’ moment when I asked a well respected city hedge fund manager that very question and he replied “You know, I have never been asked that”.
What’s your reason to get up in the morning? What do you look forward to? What don’t you look forward to?
IKIGAI, has the potential to change your life and make you happier, showing you how to:
FIND YOUR FLOW
DISCOVER YOUR PASSION
LOOK FOR THE JOY IN THE LITTLE THINGS
This ancient Eastern philosophy has never been so relevant. With our world turned upside down with the Covid epidemic how we operate in it will take on a new meaning and order.
There is plenty of information on IKIGAI, I strongly suggest you check it out.
