What is Ikigai?
The Japanese word ikigai is often translated to 'your life purpose'. Ikigai can encompass your life purpose, but the word is usually used to indicate the things that make one’s life worthwhile.
On a deeper level ikigai refers to the mental and spiritual circumstances under which individuals feel that their lives are valuable as they move forward towards their goals.
Finding Ikigai is the processes of cultivating your inner potential as you actively pursue what you enjoy doing in service of your family, tribe and community via your life roles.
