Ken Honda of Happy Money fame shared his work with us. He is Japan’s leading transformational leader, a best-selling author of many publications, and a very successful publisher and entrepreneur.
He is also a Money & You graduate – and has been invited to be part of our Instructors’ roster for future Excellerated Business Schools for Entrepreneurs… His work is so in alignment with ours… it adds so much value. We absolutely love learning from each other!
He was fun, entertaining, and his heart is bigger than Japan.
Here’s more about Ken Honda:
“Most people, whether they realize it or not, are already in a deeply committed, unhappy relationship with their money,” Ken says. “We are in a flow of either “Happy Money” or “Unhappy Money”. Depending on which flow you choose, your life and the outcomes in your life will vary. Let me state this plainly: It is not how much you make or have that makes you have Happy Money or Unhappy Money; it is the energy in which your money is given and received that determines your flow. Whether you make a lot of money or very little, your money can be in either flow. Ultimately, it is your choice. If you want to be in the flow of “Happy Money,” you can. You can choose to be grateful when you receive money and you can give generously and with joy and enthusiasm.”
Ken covered the following topics:
- Distinctions of “Happy Money”
- How to Cultivate a Loving Relationship with Money…
- Six Reasons People Want Money…
- How Much Money Do You Need to Be Happy?
- Love or Fear: Your Relationship with Money…
- What’s Your Money Personality Type?
He shared about how we can invite more “Happy Money” into our lives. And whether you have to be wealthy to have “Happy Money”… Whether the wealthy struggle with “Unhappy Money” as those with fewer financial resources.
One of the things that Ken is so alignment with our Money & You program, is the “myth of scarcity…”
His teachings include that how we relate to money is how we related to life… He will be sharing examples of those he has deeply touched with his work. He will share about really poor people, single mothers, the homeless – those who are truly struggling with surviving day-to-day.
And one of our most favorites: the main things that parents must teach their children about money.
Ken asserts that it is possible for anyone, no matter their current financial status, to live with more ease in their relationship to money.
“There is another way of living your life, especially around money,” says Ken. “Clear the fog of anxiety around financial issues. Worry is not good for your health, and you can be free from financial worries. When you feel more relaxed about money, you can trust your future more. And if you start trusting your future more, you have a lot more fun.”
“Happy Money is the kind that a ten-year-old boy uses to buy flowers for his mom on Mother’s Day,” Ken says. “Happy Money is when parents gladly pinch pennies in order to save a few extra dollars each week to send their kids to soccer camp or take piano lessons.”
