Does your Happy New Year align with your Ikigai?

We tapped into this on our last post but we want to encourage you to take a microscopic look at what your New Years resolutions and goals are and be true to yourself in discovering if they bring you your Ikigai. If not, then you will never be satisfied when you accomplish those resolutions and goals.

If they don't bring you joy and bliss why did you write them down. Is it what is expected of you? Are your goals truly your own or are they someone else's expectations of you? Did you take the lazy man's way out and just set goals that are easily obtainable?

Why destroy your Happy New Year because you won't work to make it HAPPY? That's like having a well crafted and engineered Bow and clean, precise, strong Arrows then shooting yourself in your own foot because you don't/won't develop into a skilled and mastered Archer.

It's all here for you.

You Attract That Which You Seek

Believe it or not I (kori) saw this today as I was relaxing. Maybe because I have been working with a client on their Ikigai and I attracted it, but non-the-less I'm sharing it with you. This is an excerpt from positivepsychology.com. I'm only sharing a small portion because I did not read the entire article.

The importance of finding your Ikigai:
"Ikigai requires you to know yourself; it is crucial to understand your values, what you care about, and your priorities. They are deeply personal to who you are. Finding your ikigai is no easy task, but without knowing what it is, you can't fulfill it – so it is worth undertaking the search"

We will leave you with this today. It's enough to soak up and into. Reflect back on the earlier post of this month and see if your Ikigai aligns with your Happy New Year plans & goals. Blessings 😉

The 4 "What's" of Ikigai

In answering the 4 what questions you will discovery your Ikigai

  1. What Do You Love? In work and hobby's. What is the very best part of your work and hobby's or crafts that you apply yourself to. What gives you that feeling of bliss and joy?
  2. What are you Good At? In work and hobby's. What is effortless and flows easily for you that others stand in awe about you. What do you think is a breeze to do while others struggle?
  3. What Does the World Need? In your own vision of something that the world is lacking what do you believe the world could greatly benefit from. Nothing is to small or meaningless. Everything has a meaning once created. Can opener, Key chain, Erasers. Picture frame hanging wire, wheels on a chair. See someone had to see the world as needing these things.
  4. What Can You be Paid For? This takes us back to #1 What do you love #2 What does the world need #2 What are you good at. If you love doing something that you are good at and you find a universal need for it, then the value of that which you have is monetized to the public based on their needs.

Of course there is deeper work that can be done (we coach) stemming from the 4 What's to develop and circle in on you and your Ikigai. But this is something you may have interest in researching further.

Living a Full Life

Living a FULL Life

We are taking you on a journey to understanding your Ikigai (ee-key-guy)

Knowing your Westernized ikigai can help you:
Design your ideal work lifestyle
Create strong social connections at work
Create a healthy work-life balance
Pursue your career dreams
Enjoy your work

When you know your ikigai and understand its meaning, you’re aligned with the work you’ve longed to do and the work the world needs you to do

This is JUST the career (Western) side of Ikigai. We want you to understand both the Japanese philosophy/concept along with the Westernized version.

Imagine for now that you have formed your Ikigai in business/career and you have accomplished all that we listed above. Would your work feel more enjoyable? Would you become more creative? How would your social connections at work grow and develop? Would you live a healthier happier life with your work-life balance in place? We believe the answer would be a positive for you.

Digging into Ikigai!

If you haven't read our last post please do so you understand the purpose of Ikigai.

As we previously stated the Japanese live in Ikigai as journeying into your bliss. their Western counterparts live in Ikigai as a method of finding their dream career. The Western version of Ikigai includes the 4 What's ;

What you love
What you're good at
What you can be paid for
What the world needs

How fulfilled would you be if you could take your Ikigai and wrap your passion, mission, vocation and profession within your purpose, meaning, relationships and spiritual?

That is a true form of BLISS and JOY that you have available to you, if you chose to direct your Happy New Year towards those things that bring you into Ikigai or Life Purpose.

Checking In On Your Happy New Year

Remember we started this new year with resolutions and goals. Plan, Prep, Do, Receive, Reward, Reflect.

We're checking in to see how your resolutions and goals are developing. Have they changed? It's healthy if they have because YOU are growing and developing to find the best version of yourself.

We are introducing you to a perspective that may assist in your journey to your Happy New Year of fulfilled resolutions and goals. It's an ancient Japanese philosophy called Ikigai (ee-key-guy).

Have you ever heard of Ikigai? As we have worked with our clients, we believe this philosophy has helped them feel a sense of relief, bliss and joy in their life journey. So what exactly is Ikigai?

It's an ancient Japanese philosophy that has enveloped the way Japanese people live. It has been attributed to the happiness and longevity within this culture. The meaning of Ikigai is simply "Reason for Being", "Life Worth/Value".

We encourage and coach our clients into finding, rediscovering and developing their Bliss, Life Purpose. It's what brings you joy and inspires you to activate yourself in this world everyday.

Do you have your joy and bliss that activates you each day? If so share it with us so that others may understand how you found and developed it.

Be a Team of Inquisitive Visionaries

Our brains love to dream, create, and plan. Take all of your creative juices and flow with your team, partners, spouses, co-owners and couple-preneurs without any hindrance so that your cohesive brain will take flight.

When you allow yourselves to imagine and create it pushes the function of the brain into new territories to flourish. Your brain believes you can do and will do whatever you tell it. As a team one idea turns into another and another, soon the road is open for uninhibited projects and outcomes.

As you are being creative, think of ways to stimulate your cohesive brain power. Maybe games, journaling, team building, music, tag team story telling.

These activities cause the brain to heighten the stream of consciousness and allow more motion to create.

Surround yourselves with Healthy Brains

We have been talking to teams, partners, spouses, co-owners, couple-preneurs and families regarding "getting it together, together" with a common brain flow.

We can tell you the most impactful process you can develop for your teams, partners, spouses etc is surrounding yourselves with healthy brains.

"As iron sharpens iron, So a friend sharpens the countenance of his friend" Proverbs 27:17.

Sharpening is to make better, improve upon, enhance and refine.

This is a challenge we give you to find those either in business, or life that have healthy cohesive brain function that you feel sharpens you (collectively) and you (collectively) sharpen them.

Gee, how will we know? Once you are on the journey you will vibrate towards and be drawn to those like you. You will also find yourselves flushing other relationships that are not healthy cohesive brain practices. We evolve as we move through new practices and in doing so we encounter new social interactions with people of like mind.

You may find yourselves less accepting of the relationships that no longer serve you well because you as a team, partner, spouse, co-owners and couple-preneures are now surrounding yourselves with Healthy Brains. And that's OKAY!

Turn Off Technology

It's just not good for your brain to have constant interference of wifi and the disruption of cell phones, internet and television. These digital devices have serious effects on our brains and our relationships.

When we are continually battered with tweets, posts, emails, and texts, the best thing you can do for your brain is eliminate all of this "blue-light" for a period within your day (maybe lunch time or after dinner). This gives your brain rest and allows you to recenter your thoughts without interference.

When you take a pause from the technology "bug" you protect your brain from overstimulation. Which helps you to be more present in mind and thoughts for your team, partner, family, and spouse. And of course, keeping all of this technology off during sleeping hours is a huge plus to your fresh start in the morning. Which again builds a better "you" for others.

Practice this with those in your life you are in relationship with. See what a difference you evolve into as a unit.

Laugh Often

"A Merry Heart Does Good Like A Medicine but a broken spirit dries the bones" Proverbs 17:22

Wow doesn't that tell you to choose happiness. When you can find something that causes you to LOL, Laugh Out Loud. Grab hold of it.

When you release the expression of laughter your body and mind work in harmony to reduce/flush stress. Your brain actually is flooded with dopamine and other feel good natural chemicals that make the brain sharper and more vivid.

It literally is good like a medicine. Laughter bonds people together. Make sure you are enjoying your co-owner, spouse, partner, and team member with good old fashioned "Belly Laughter" this is where memories are made.

Laughter builds a connection and it causes people to desire to work together and become creative with one another because they enjoy the common thoughts of fun or humor.

Let's not get so busy we forget how to laugh and enjoy each other. Remember to laugh together NOT at each other…. This is a practice of building up your relationships not tearing them down.
