2.) Something that the world needs.
Something that creates a visual difference in the world.
That you feel somehow essential to do.
Like in the ancient time like a hunter, builder, chef, farmer, arrow maker.
3.) Something that pays you well.
Because you don’t want to worry about money.
So that you can afford what you desire.
Enough to live a comfortable life.
4.) Something that you are good at.
This means you have some talents and through training you become good. Overcome the obstacles that are fulfilling to become good.
Our Profession is the most important part of our life.
We spend most of our time and energy on working to make money.
We should choose for our profession at least two of these categories from Ikigai to become happy.
In this Diagram you will find the best categories of combinations that will lead to a fulfilling life.
These 4 categories combinations lead to 4 motives for your profession:
For every motive, we should focus on something to become better and happier.
1.) Passion - Combination: Something that you love and that you are good at.
We need to make enough money to live a fulfilling life… Imagine, your family always requires much more money than you can imagine. Give your passion the focus to make money!
2.) Mission- Combination: Something that you love and that the world needs.
A mission without to become that very expert is not a mission at all. Learn everyday like me for instance. Otherwise, You can’t become good!
3.) Profession - Combination: Something that you are good at and that pays you well.
You try out, again and again, new things that make you happy and enough money!
Otherwise, you will not be a happy person.
4.) Vocation - Combination: Something that the world needs and that pays you well.
Challenge yourself to become better than the rest in your niche. Otherwise, you can’t make the money that you need, and your job will be not exciting.
