In my life journey, I learned that there is no such thing as coincidence. Everything happens for a bigger reason. But this is a topic for another day.
The reason that I told you that is my adventure of learning IKIGAI. When i started to come across the word IKIGAI I just liked the meaning. When i started to see the word more than five times in one week and came across a book named IKIGAI i knew that i had to dig deeper into the subject. All those years of coaching and helping people to write their own story, I couldn’t believe that i had never heard of this word that describes the purpose of my life and my job.
It is a simple yet very powerful word to describe a Japanese philosophy. The most basic translation is “Life Purpose” .
In my research to IKIGAI, I learned that it is a well known Japanese secret for a long, happy, healthy, fulfilled life. It is not about finding a big life purpose. It is about finding ‘YOUR’ life purpose. It doesn’t matter if it’s just watching the sunset every morning or being a CEO of a global company.
It’s about having a reason to wake up every morning. Taking a good care of your self. Adding a value to your community. Living your life, happy and healthy. Keeping the integrity of mind body and soul.
Writing your own story.
My life journey led me to find my IKIGAI in life coaching. My IKIGAI is helping people to find and live their IKIGAI. The universe decided after 10 years of coaching i need to learn the real word that describes my life purpose better than any other word.
