Focus on WHY – 039 Create Your Ikigai with Héctor García

Focus on WHY meets IKIGAI!

I had the honor to be invited to Amy Rowlinson podcast, you can listen to it it here:

It is also available on Apple Podcasts

International bestselling author Héctor García shares why he co-authored Ikigai with Francesc Miralles and how they wrote the book from their hearts. Héctor shares his WHY, his love of Tokyo and the Japanese culture, his interest in existentialism and the importance of community.

What do you love doing? What does the world need? What can you be paid for? What are you good at?

When you combine your passion with your mission, with your vocation and your profession you achieve ikigai. This is where your purpose meets your values, where you find fulfilment and you are aligned with your true self as you find your calling and become more satisfied with your work as you are passionate about it.

KEY TAKEAWAY

“If you are having doubts of your ikigai or your purpose in life, your purpose in life from now on should be to create your ikigai or keep trying things to align your life with your purpose.”
