Sometimes I ask myself if there is a meaning in life.
Many people don’t think about these sorts of things.
Recently I read the book Ikigai, by Héctor García And Francesc Miralles (amazon link).
Ikigai translates to: what do we get up for in the morning?
Answer these really short, four questions if you want to get to know the meaning of life
- What do you love?
- What are you good at?
- What can you be paid for?
- What does the world need from you?
To find your Ikigai, ask yourself: What do your four answers have in common? There is no wrong or right. Your meaning of life. You now have it right in front of you.
Scientists found 4 keys a life has to consist of if you want to get old and in great shape.
The following things help us:
- Finding a purpose in life (an Ikigai),
- Finally, we should have a broad circle of friends and good family relations.
The happiest people are the ones who spend more time than others in a state of flow.
Just consider these 3 points if you want to achieve the state of flow
- Find a task that is difficult, but not too difficult
- Don’t focus on what you can't do. Have a concrete and clear objective
- Seek to single-task
And remember them words:
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” - Victor Frankl
