    Ikigai refers to having a direction or purpose in life, that which makes
    one's life worthwhile, and towards which an individual takes
    spontaneous and willing actions giving them satisfaction and a sense
    of meaning to life.

    Your Ikigai
    • Some of you might already be living out
    ‘your reason for being’.
    • You may not know it yet – that is ok!
    • What you love or what you are good
    it is what really matters here.
    • Do your best to articulate
    - what you love,
    - what you feel the world needs,
    - what you are good at,
    - what you can be paid for.

    Reasons people don’t achieve their Ikigai?
    •People don’t want to mix their passion with their work
    •People don’t believe it is possible to make their love/passion pay
    •You allow people’s perceptions of your dream/mission more weight than your own
    •You can’t take a short term pay cut to live out your ikigai
    •You’ve become too complacent and feel it is unachievable or too late in the piece
    •People don’t make money out of this kind of passion
    •Self doubt

  9. • In your break-out rooms please share what you might need to do to
    move closer to achieving your Ikigai. Keep in mind the goal is that it
    doesn’t have to happen now! It’s about connecting with your reason for
    being.

    How to move towards your Ikigai?
    • Upskilling (study, volunteer, push boundaries)
    • Realise that this is your ‘reason for being’ and not anyone else’s
    • Commitment to authentically coming back to your purpose
    (the third space from last week can help with this)
    • Moving one step further along your path and feel like you are adding pavers
    or bricks that allow you to take the next step to vocational enlightenment

    • Awareness that Ikigai is ‘your reason for being’.
    • What are you doing to move into that space?
    • What can you start doing to move into that space?
    • Ikigai takes work, self-awareness, commitment and it is ongoing.
    • Don’t be so quick to dismiss someone else’s Ikigai.
