Changing Perspective

If you build your definition of everything by the society’s standard, then this is always going to be unattainable. However, when you build your life by your own standards than everything is always an arms reach. Hard work and an unwavering desire to become whatever you wish will always see you through. So when you ask yourself if you have everything, don’t be so hasty to conform to society’s view of everything (a house, new car, marriage with kids) and write yourself off as a failure. Look within and critically decide whether you have everything you require to tackle your world and your own demons. For society will never know those battles and those are the battles where you, as an individual, will need everything to overcome. The ones that ripe you through to your core and provoke the remaking of you. Build yourself to be your own everything and nothing will ever be impossible. For when we dream we enter a world entirely of our own without the constructs of society’s view of success or everything. So don’t let society or anyone tame you and dictate what your everything looks like because they don’t see your dreams and to possess everything will mean that you have all you need to conquer the world. That starts from within and you hold the power to unlock your everything. So have you got everything?

This is my story of finding my ikigai. Ikigai (生き甲斐, pronounced [ee-ki-ɡU]) is a Japanese concept meaning "a reason for being". According to the Japanese, everyone has a hidden ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self. Such a search is regarded as very important, since it is believed that discovery of one’s ikigai brings satisfaction and meaning to life.
