Having a purpose is an essential ingredient of longevity and happiness. Okinawa, Japan's secret to the longevity of life is ikigai. This Japanese term has two elements: ‘iki’ which means life, and ‘gai,’ or value. Discover your ikigai by asking these 4 basic questions:
1. What are your strengths? What is something you do better than everyone else?
2. What does the world need? Picture something you see that the world lacks.
3. What are your passions? Envision the things that you could do the entire day without ceasing.
4. What can you earn a living doing? You ought to make money from your craft, so how can you achieve that?
Ikigai doesn’t need to be associated with your work. Your purpose may arise from a hobby or your social relationships. Do whatever you discover that gets you up in the morning, and make sure to never give it up.
