Manny Anchan was a speaker at TEDx ManSagar Lake in 2021. This was the author’s first-ever TEDx talk and to say it knocked him out of the park would be an understatement. The conference held in Jaipur saw a mix of a live speaker with an online audience, which proved to be a very unique experience for the author.

Manny started the conversation with a few questions that made everyone realize that everyone has been through other kinds of pain and they weren’t alone. The conversation progresses with Manny explaining to people what Ikigai is and what its principles are. The author of “Happiness Samurai” went on to explain how these 10 principles can be applied in everyday life, which can help make life better and happier.

It was one of the many accomplishments this motivational speaker managed to earn in this pandemic year with many more on its way in the new year. Manny’s main purpose is to spread joy and help others in their pursuit of happiness. He does this through tailored seminars, workshops, programs and courses in addition to his critically acclaimed books. He also motivates people with movies, essays and photos that he posts on social media. This book is just one more step in his quest to inspire people to discover their Ikigai and a source of lasting happiness.
