Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive.
We all have an inner spark that makes us come alive, that gives us purpose and meaning to our lives. It gives us the ability to create, inspire positive change, and give to the world in our own unique way.
Often this spark gets dulled by our daily routine, the pressures of life, social expectations and norms and our own fears.
Take the time to discover that spark, and let it ignite our strengths, talents, passions and values, so you can live life to the fullest, a life of intention, purpose and passion.
What brings purpose and joy to your life?
The answers lie in understanding what drives us, our strengths, and most importantly, our core values. A fulfilling life is driven by purpose, and purpose is driven by passion. We all have the talents, the gifts, and the ability to live a better life and make a difference.
We also have an intrinsic need to feel significant, to believe that we make a difference, to live a life that is meaningful. When we use our talents and skills to bring about change in the world, it leads us to the joy of finding our purpose.
This quest for purpose and meaning in life is reflected in the ancient Japanese concept called ikigai, which translates simply to “a reason to get up in the morning” or “waking up to joy.”
When you find your passion and use it to make a difference in the world, and also to make a living, you have found your “ikigai”. The journey to ikigai usually requires deep self-reflection and making the time and effort to reconnect with your core.
According to the advise of Ken Mogi, the author of “Awakening your Ikigai,” there are 5 steps to finding your purpose:
Discovering your spark is not an easy journey. It requires a deep and honest connection with yourself, accepting yourself as you are, learning and growing, trying new things, getting out of your comfort zone, connecting with others and making a difference in the world.
When we overcome our inner fears and walk the difficult path to achieve our potential, we become an inspiration for others. Discover what lights that spark inside you, discover possibilities within yourself
Be an inspiration, let your inner spark light be a beacon for others. The world is waiting for your light.
