Do you struggle to find out what you are put on this earth to do? What Your calling is, what your purpose is, what your Why is? You have come to the right place as I will present a tool that has helped me and many others find the Why.

Use the tool called IkiGai to get pointed in the right direction. I am sharing what it is, and my example.

What is it? Ikigai Japanese - Translated, the word ikigai means "a reason to live," or more specifically, "the reason to get up in the morning." something that gives a person a sense of purpose!

  1. What you love
  2. What the world needs
  3. What you are good at
  4. What you can get paid for

The point that intersects all 4 circles is called IkiGai. It is seen by the Japanese as the source of value or what makes one's life truly worthwhile.

For each question, I suggest you dedicate some quiet/uninterrupted time to ask the questions and then let your mind wander, pick up a pen and paper or digitally start typing whatever comes to you. Whenever you feel that your brain gets in the way, stop it and allow yourself to get back into the flow.

I suggest doing this at least once every year. Do it once and then each year update it.

My wife and I wrote the book: “LIFE LESSONS: From A Wiser Me to A Younger Me” In this book, we go into details of what were the biggest lessons we have learned up until now. Our intention for writing the book was for people to learn from it and not repeat the same mistakes we did. Also what we have learned in 10, 20 years, could be compressed in a few days of you reading the book. So there is a lot to gain :)
