The Japanese Ikigai Diagram
The Japanese Ikigai symbol diagrams the sweet spot beautifully. It’s our reason for being or getting up in the morning. When we find the sweet spot between vocation, mission, profession, and passion, we find the most joy and sense of well-being. This is where we light up and feel our life has meaning, value, and impact. When we’re just off-center, where the vibrations are painful, we feel stuck. This includes feeling satisfied but useless, comfortable but empty, excited but uncertain, or delighted but enjoying little profit.
