What is IKIGAI?

IKIGAI, pronounced as ee-key-guy, is a Japanese concept that blends two words:

"iki" meaning life

 meaning purpose

It's akin to the French concept of "Raison d'être," signifying the reason for one's existence. In essence, it's about having a compelling reason to embrace each new day, rooted in the pursuit of one's true purpose.

While a fulfilling and enduring life is influenced by multiple factors, including a healthy lifestyle, adequate rest, and positive social connections, the Japanese encapsulate the importance of discovering one's purpose with a proverb:

"Only by remaining active will you wish to live for a hundred years."

Many individuals find themselves discontented with their jobs for various reasons – they may lack passion for their work, receive inadequate compensation, or feel that their talents remain untapped, preventing them from making a more significant positive impact on the world.


Now, picture having the ideal job: engaging in work you love, excelling at it, receiving fair compensation, and knowing that the world genuinely needs your contributions.
That's the essence of IKIGAI.
