What is ikigai?

Ikigai is a Japanese word that has no exact translation, but is summarized in English as “the meaning of life” or “the thing that makes you get out of bed.” The Japanese believe that we all have an ikigai—or even several—inside us, even if we don't know it yet. In The Ikigai Journey, Héctor García & Francesc Miralles, show you how to find YOUR ikigai by reflecting on the concept's four main components, which includes:

What You Love.What You Are Good At.What The World Needs.What You Can Be Paid For.

The intersect of these components, and the answers to these questions, will help to reveal one's passion, mission, profession, and vocation, and ultimately be the window into your own ikigai.

Each Chapter Includes:







Japanese Philosophies & Concepts

Using an extended metaphor of traveling via shinkansen, The Ikigai Journey starts each chapter with a station number, Japanese concept, and a quick translation of that idea.

Current Research & Poignant Insight

The Ikigai Journey delves into the details of each individual concept behind ikigai, offering current research, personal anecdotes, and poignant insight/takeaways to its readers.

Practical Exercises

Ever love learning about a new philosophy, but don't know how to apply it to your daily life? The Ikigai Journey not only shares the history and lessons learned through ikigai, but also offers practical exercises, so that you, too, can transform your life and start living your ikigai.
