Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means 'the reason for being'. It originates in Okinawa (Japan) and is made up of two words - 'Iki' which in Japanese means life, and 'gai' which translates to value or worth.


Ikigai is
• What you love (your passion)
• What you are good at (your vocation)
• What the world needs (your mission)
• What you can get paid for (your profession)
Leading a life at the centre of these four qualities gives a person a sense of purpose and a reason for living.
