Discover Your IKIGAI - A Reason for Living


Ikigai is a Japanese word that translates to “the reason for being” or “a reason to wake up each morning.” In Japan the word is widely used to describe a healthy passion for something that makes us feel as though life is worth living to the fullest.

Think about the time when we were searching for a new career or embarking on a new position, are these the questions we often ask ourselves before making a decision:

  • What do we like?

  • What are we good at?

  • What type of resources can this bring?

While most people want to find something that we are passionate about and doing it skillfully such that brings us the resources, many of us are struggling to strike this balance and few succeed in getting to the bliss point.

Perhaps some of us are familiar with the terminology of going through the motions of life. Will that satisfy you? Or be fulfilling for you?

IKIGAI gives us the 4th question: Is what you do, the world’s need?

This brings us to a bigger perspective, and makes us ponder about Why am I here in this world? What is my purpose?

According to the Japanese, everyone has a hidden ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self. It’s starts with getting to know yourself.

Such a search is regarded as very important, since it is believed that discovery of one’s ikigai brings satisfaction and meaning to life.

On 7 March, we have invited Certified Coaches Angela Tan and Cynthia Lim to share with us how they managed to transform their life. Come and join us to discover how to get started on this journey of finding your IKIGAI.
