How To Find Your Happiness

What gets you out of bed in the morning? Do you have a sense of purpose? Is your today just a repeat of yesterday?

Ikigai — a Japanese life philosophy — means that when you don’t have something that gets you out of bed in the morning, then you’re kind of dead, even if you’re still alive.

Ikigai asks four questions, at the center of which you can find your purpose: 1) What do you love? 2) What are you good at? 3) What does the world need from you? 4) What can you get paid for?

So what’s your Ikigai?
