Are You Struggling to Find Meaning in Your  Life?

We live in a chaotic world, where we crave and pursue material possession, social validation and success, thinking these things will make us fulfilled. Happiness has become a destination that we can only achieve once we reach a certain level of success or recognition.  In an era of unprecedented excess we have never been more unhappy, unfulfilled and alone. 

Ikigai offers you a way to be present, fulfilled and motivated every day.

Whether you are professionally successful, financial free or loved by family and friends, if you’re not waking up every morning excited to start the day, then something is wrong with the way your are living and experiencing life.

Finding your ikigai will give you that daily sense of purpose and fulfilment you are looking for.


Ikigai is a greatly misunderstood concept, with many people thinking it is the purpose framework involving doing something you love, being good at it, while serving the world and getting paid for it.  This is not ikigai.

Ikigai is not a sweet spot where everything in your life merges for you to suddenly find happiness, purpose and financial success.

warning not ikigai

"Ikigai translated into English as ‘life purpose’ sounds quite formidable , but ikigai need not be the one overriding purpose of a person’s life. In fact, the word life aligns more with daily life. In other words, ikigai can be about the joy a person finds living day-to-day, without which their life as a whole would not be a happy one."

– Akihiro Hasegawa, Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist

What Is Ikigai?

According to Japanese culture, finding your Ikigai is the most honorable and rewarding thing one can do. It’s the key to a long and happy life.  While there is no English equivalent, the literal translation is “the reason for which one lives”

Your Ikigai can be your job, your relationships, your family, your hobby, all of these things or anything else. It’s whatever brings you satisfaction and a sense of meaning to life. It is often describe as “the reason for which one wakes up in the morning.”

It's not a grandiose motivational framework, but more of a life philosophy involving daily rituals, living your values, building intimate relationships and fulfilling your life roles.
