IKIGAI means ” A reason for being” in Japanese

According to the Japanese, everyone has an Ikigai. An Ikigai is essentially ‘a reason to get up in the morning’. A reason to enjoy and living life in a meaningful way. A life that not only benefits you but benefits others as well.

Answer these four questions to find out your IKIGAI or a reason for living a healthy, beautiful and a meaningful life:

1. What do you love?

2. What are you good at?

3.What does the world need from you?

4.What can you get paid for?
