How to Make Peace With Your Money with Ken Honda Everyone's Talkin' Money

    • Self-Improvement

Have you ever tried to achieve a money goal and felt like you never make any progress? Or do you cringe anytime something comes out of the blue that you need to spend money on? Or do you walk around feeling completely uneasy about your money situation? If you answered yes to either of these questions you are not alone. You see, money is about more than numbers. It’s about our very complex relationship with money that was set in motion even before we were born, believe it or not. All these years you’ve been collecting information about how you think, act, and feel about money and this information has been working somewhat in the background without feeling like you have any control. 

As our much-beloved guest, Ken Honda says, “it’s like you have a mold in you that attracts a certain relationship with money until you recognize it and start to make changes, nothing else will change.”  Ken is a money and happiness expert and a best-selling self-development author in Japan. His book “Happy Money” is one that will forever be on my bookshelf, and if you haven’t read it, now is the time. When I was thinking about how to end this year on Everyone’s Talkin’ Money podcast and get you prepared to be in a better relationship with money, I knew you had to hear from Ken. In this episode, Ken shares how to figure out what is enough for you so you aren’t sucked into believing that more is better, how to redefine your relationship with money so you can bring in some ease, and how to do the work to let go of your money fears for good.
