Publisher's Summary

Become Zen with your money and alleviate your anxieties about finances and earning potential. Ken Honda - Japan’s number-one best-selling personal-development guru - will help you heal your relationship with money and discover the lifestyle that will truly make you happy.

Ken Honda knows that getting rich quick is no way to achieve happiness. Too often, money is a source of fear, stress, and anger, often breaking apart relationships and even ruining lives. Now, with practical and accessible language, the Zen Millionaire (as he is known in Japan) clearly explains how to achieve a peace of mind when it comes to money and how to decide which path you should take toward happiness. 

Learn how to change your relationship with money by treating it as a welcome guest - allowing it to come and go with respect without questioning its motives or resenting its fluctuations. Understand and improve your Money EQ, look behind the myth of scarcity, and embrace the process of giving money along with receiving it. 

What Marie Kondo’s The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up did for your living space, Honda’s Happy Money will do for your feelings about your wallet.

Happy Money Changed My Life

I just finished listening to Happy Money and my heart is filled with joy and happiness towards my success surrounding money but most of all my life. I was one of those people that thought money was dirty and people that had more than me must be bad. I know now that money doesn’t define people it’s what my perceptions about people are. By listening to this amazing book I have learned to ask myself what is it about that is stopping me from my happy money. The only person that stops me is me. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to see inner peace surrounding their own individual happiness in their lives!!!

Best book in quarantine

I was feeling demotivated and my money fears were kicking in. I was overspending and couldn't invest in myself and felt so bad about money. A little voice inside me asked me to pick up Happy Money and listen to it while I got groceries. I had never felt so happy buying groceries in my life. I'm ready to fill my cup and bring in more money into my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

It’s a great book for anyone struggling with money

For years I have struggled with money. When I was younger, my father told me I had to work in a company and become an executive. I tried that, and I hated the grind and trying to “make my money situation all right”. From my fathers perspective and what I thought was the society’s perspective. I had thought that you have to work all the time, doing something you wish you don’t have to, so people can approve you and that’s how “you are supposed to live life”. And if I wanted to relax or do something you enjoy, I thought something bad was going to happen. And that I couldn’t possibly live a life without fear of not being approved and this fear that I would loose it all. I always thought that I was not good enough, so I have to do more of the hard grind, always worried that I am not getting the approval of others, and good things will and can go away any moment. Yet I always had this feeling that I don’t want to accept money. I don’t know, for some reason. Like I didn’t want to be judged as a scary horrible person that everyone hates. For some reason, as much as I wanted money, when money actually came towards me I would push it away. Like, if you accept money people will find out the truth of my darkness, the dark desire for wanting money, and although I want it, I don’t want to loose love and approval of others. The concept discussed in this book was life changing. I have much healing and correcting my thinking to do. Mr Honda brought me the grace, the little space between my mind and my heart to let me know it’s okay to be who I am. And I can, I am allowed, and I need to follow my heart and accept or view money as an energy form that can match the frequency of my attitude towards how I view life. Thank you very much Mr. Honda.

This book taught me how to FEEL GOOD about money

Happy Money teaches me how to be happy with the money flow that is currently surrounding my life. Your life will be different than mine or even Ken's, and you need to figure it out. This book will help you look into how you perceive money, use it and receive it and having that understood, is going to be your secret to change everything.

Un livre profond qu'il n'y paraît

Le style d'écriture est simple mais derrière chaque phrase qui se lit comme un un grand principe simple se cache une réelle réflexion à avoir pour implémenter les prescriptions dans sa propre vie. À écouter et réécouter plusieurs fois pour en assimiler les nuances.
