My thoughts on IKIGAI

Finding our path to generating wealth is not about the money but finding out who we are and following that path.

Wealth Dynamics Profiles show us what direction to take and finding our IKIGAI helps follow that direction with focus and clarity on what our mission is encapsulated in one ‘idea’ of self in action.

As we look at our IKIGAI clusters, we must first ask ourselves the question: ‘What is no longer relevant?’

What I mean by that is that we are often attached to some ideas of what we want to do with our lives, what kind of job we want to do. These attachments are often based on our upbringing or more often than not on the way we see ourselves. These two attachments are rather big traps when looking for our IKIGAI, our reason for being in ACTION.

What is not relevant is not only aspects of life that have changed greatly over the years but also what it is not relevant to us as individuals any longer. For example, in our 20’s we would probably have liked to see a world that makes Marijuana a legal drug, because we imagined the prefect world being chilled and peaceful as a result of the drug on our brains. It maybe true, however, in our forties or fifties we tend to have a wider vision of the world and its needs.

Additionally, we would have more life experience, have gone though some major changes in our lives so to have a deeper understanding of who we are and what we truly want out of life.

An ever deepening self-knowledge is key for realizing your IKIGAI.
