Mikaele Gaudet and Dreamed

Dreamed   Click Here to listen to this weeks call with Mikaele Gaudet.

As we enter into the third week of a new year I cannot help but think about the full technicolor report I receive most every morning when our youngest daughter shares with me as she warms herself in front of the wood stove.  It usually starts out with a simple question, ‘Daddy, can I tell you what I dreamed last night?’  Of course whatever I’m doing at the time becomes a complete waste of time because the creative imagination of this almost 12 year old is better than anything coming out of Hollywood.

What did I dream about last night, last year, or even the last decade?  Did I have dreams that I put on paper and shared with others?  Did I passionately share these dreams with a true friend who would genuine ask me what I’m doing to pursue those dreams?

What did I dream about last night, last year, or even the last decade?  Did I have dreams that I put on paper and shared with others?  Did I passionately share these dreams with a true friend who would genuine ask me what I’m doing to pursue those dreams?

One of my mentors that has challenged me for over three decades is Oswald Chambers.  He said that ‘dreaming about something great is fantastic, but dreaming about it when we should be doing something about it is wrong’. The momentum that started when Nikken came back online in November has literally flipped a switch in the hearts of this unstoppable community. We’re seeing dreams come true amongst those who are acting out the reality of Humans Being More.

Barb Satterwhite shared with the iCan crew last night several key dream nuggets and yet the one that pierced the core of my being was simply this, share what needs to be shared and don’t concern yourself with the outcome. Our dreams of better balance in all 5 Pillars of wellness need to be shared as we invite others. Whether it’s an entire wellness home investment or simply the start of something big with a PowerBand bracelet, we can contribute to the 2025 Goal(dream) of 10 million people living active wellness.


Tomorrow morning on Saturday AM Live!

Mikaele Gaudet is one who has inspired me to dream bigger since I first met her via Zoom. Her heart filled the screen as she acted as the interpreter for Leo Lemay sharing his dreams of a better life. The message going from French to English was not delayed as Mikaele had the opportunity to share her own story. Being one who had already been in the wellness field, Nikken opened a whole new dimension with our amazing solutions. Her journey has been fast and yet very duplicatable.

The call will commence at 7:00am PDT and the numbers to push are 480-660-2210, code 1536#. The great gal that answers won’t tell you to enter 1536#, so be sure to do this. If you miss it live, check out this conversation and so much more at: www.SaturdayAMLive.com. Look in the ‘2022 Recordings’ tab to see the latest in reverse order, with the most recent at the bottom.

Looking forward to a sweet Saturday morning with you and hearing the story of one who’s heart is bigger than the country of Canada where she lives,

Kathryn Hull and The Plan

January 8, 2022     The Plan

 
‘The days keep passing by and every plan fails.’ - Ezekiel

Before you freak out and ask the question, why on earth would you quote such a terrible passage?!? Let me explain. Every year I read that same short proverb and then I’m amazed at the context and response. A group of people kept saying those same nine words over and over again with the same results… NOTHING! When the guy attempting to lead them strongly came back with a different life philosophy, they immediately stopped repeating those words and the entire nation changed for the better.

When it comes to planning out a year, we have to remember that sometimes just talking about the plan isn’t enough. George Patton said, ‘A good plan violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week’.

What plans did we make for 2022 and which ones have already failed? If they were a resolution, then unfortunately, most of those don’t see the light of day by the end of January. However, when we start putting feet to our plans, then things happen. When we actually start doing something about it, providence moves.

My Father-n-law has carried extra weight his entire adult life. When he married Stacey and I 26 years ago he looked great in that tuxedo, but lets just say there was a lot of him to love. Years ago he told me that he stopped looking at the scale when it crested over 300#’s and for a guy who’s always been 6’3” he knew something needed to be done, but he struggled with a plan. Yesterday he told me that he’s 177#’s with a 34” waist and his blood pressure is 118/82. He’s in his 70’s now and all he kept talking about was that his plan executed with simple steps(and the Nikken Wellness Home) produced the results he wanted and needed. ‘Way to go Dad!’ is all I could say to him.

Humans Being More is one of the most fantastic ways to develop a plan and then put it into action. Four hours spent investing into yourself can yield unbelievable results. Check out the Nikken calendar for the next one and enroll today! Read the Nikken blogs for up-to-the minute advice on planning and so much more.


Tomorrow morning on Saturday AM Live!

Kathryn Hull may be one of the newest Silvers in Nikken, but she’s not new to the world of wellness. Working as a customer service rep for a private health clinic in Canada, she witnesses first hand the need for active self-care or preventive maintenance. As a young single mom of twins and business partner with her mother, Kathryn admits that they’ve never done anything like this before, but she loves learning more about the industry and how to help others do the same.

The call will commence at 7:00am PDT and the numbers to push are 480-660-2210, code 1536#. The great gal that answers won’t tell you to enter 1536#, so be sure to do this.

One week into this new year and I’m looking forward to developing/playing the plan with you,

If all else fails and Professor Paul Gabias

 Click Here to Listen to This Weeks Call with Paul Gabias.

Copy of Vance's Email December 31, 2022

If all else fails…

‘Teach us to number our days carefully so that we may develop wisdom in our hearts’. - King David

In our pursuit to ‘Discover It, Live It, and then Share It’, how do we really come to understand a new product, concept, or life altering truth that will give us a better life? It’s the title of James W. Moore’s book ‘If all else fails, read the directions’ that has helped me understand this more thoroughly.

What if there aren’t any directions? What if we try, try, and try again to find the directions and they’re just not there? What if we cannot find someone wise enough to help us?

Fortunately with Nikken, we have a myriad of people who have been on this path of discovery to call upon. Some have been on this journey for years and some just a few days, but all of them have one thing in common. They decided to get on the path AND they’re so willing to train others.

Oh, and here’s a different twist on getting on a wellness path for the new year…. Since we choose this gift called Nikken and we get to select how and when we add to our wellness homes, there is very little to reject. Retail forecasters are estimating that $67 billion dollars worth of merchandise will be returned or sent back via an already strained shipping system. It’s yet another reason why our family has enjoyed being on the road to wellness for almost three decades because we get to choose where this vehicle is taking us.

Here’s to yet another great year of discovering wellness the Nikken way!


This weekend on Saturday AM Live!

New Platinum Professor Paul Gabias is not just an Associate Professor of Psychology in British Columbia, he’s one of us who has a passion for helping people discover what we have with Nikken. He’s been part of studying at Nikken University for a few years and as a fellow Humans Being More graduate in Seattle, I can tell you that this is a teacher who knows how to learn, unlearn, and then learn again. I had the privilege of going through a two day version of HBM with him in person with Jeff Isom guiding us and I will NEVER forget what Paul taught me. Oh, and if you think you might have a hurdle in life or something to overcome, wait till you discover what this teacher not only teaches, but overcomes everyday in his own life.

The call will commence at 7:00am PDT and the numbers to push are 480-660-2210, code 1536#. The great gal that answers won’t tell you to enter 1536#, so be sure to do this.

Click Here to Listen to Part 2 of This Weeks Call with Larry Haffner.
"Car conversations can really be a wonderful time to learn. The real key is to actually focus on the person rather than give into the temptation of switching subjects at every passing object. Larry Hafner is considered my BFF by my daughters and although that may be true based on our phone time each week, he’s also become one of my trusted accountability partners in personal development. In other words, we know its not the perfection of our lives, but the direction of our lives that counts. Larry and I will be sharing some of our recent stories of success as we cruise the interstate in route to the Tacoma, Washington, Health and Wealth By Choice, Not By Chance Summit!"

Casual Conversations

This last week I’ve had more fun with a simple story than most weeks. Rather than wait for people to ask me about Nikken, I’m discovering ways to ask lots of questions so I’m able to work my elevator speech right into the conversation.

One particular time was actually a follow up conversation that I’ve been wanting to have, but I couldn’t remember the persons name. I know, terrible am I. What made it so much fun was when she responded by saying, ‘I’m thrilled that you want to keep talking to me because that tells me that my husband didn’t tell you what I do for an occupation.’ It turns out she’s a naturopathic physician! That's when the chat got really good and we were able to go deep.

One of the tools that I’ve used numerous times during these conversations lately is a 12 minute mini-documentary that is actually a trailer for a regular documentary. I was so impressed with this short video that I spent way too much time trying to find the full length film. I still haven’t found it, so rather than get frustrated, I decided that it must be for a reason and I think 12 minutes will work for most folks.


Once you watch it, I think you’ll agree with what Mary Poppins (Dr. Mary VanHoy) shared with me. ‘When we leverage a 3rd party validation like this piece, all we have to do is tell people that we have a fantastic grounding pad at a very competitive price.’ I especially like the testimony at the end because this woman shares a fair amount of really good stuff that were not supposed to. And because she doesn’t mention Nikken, it’s perfect!

Humans Being More and Caryn Willens

Cayrn Willens
 "A few days ago Caryn Willens hosted Humans Being More in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. She started six months ago with the idea of impacting a group of people who had never experienced this. A few of the participants will share their thoughts as well as Caryn as to why this event is so life altering."

Humans Being More

My first encounter with this philosophy or concept was when I received my starter pack from Nikken in December of 1992. Back in the day, we’d enroll as distributors, Nikken would send us a box of VHS tapes, 3-ring binder, and about six months worth of reading material. I didn’t ever go through the contents of that box but I’ll never forget the slogan on the cover of that   binder ‘Yes My Wellness’ and a prevailing theme of Humans Being More.

When this core belief gets into us, we end up doing more. What I find so rewarding is when this spirit influences the people we come in contact with every day.

I’m gonna brag a bit on a young lady that I’ve never met, but feel as if I know her because our oldest daughter has the privilege of working alongside her to impact others. I’ve watched this video several times now and each time it gets me. Maybe it’s because our daughter Kenna is in it (near the two minute mark), but I think it’s because at the recent George HW Bush Points of Light award ceremony, this Iowa farm girl was recognized for not only being a Humans Being More type person, but for doing more.


Kenna has been exposed to Nikken’s core philosophies since conception. As a recipient of the Watanabe Scholarship I know she’s going to continue doing more because her parents have exposed her to Humans Being More. Not just the training, but the spirit!

Wildfires and Kimball Sergant

Kimball Sargent

"Snapshots of San Antonio with Sargent Sparky herself!  Kimball Sargent is truly a wildfire.  Her weekly presence on the Sizzle calls has been a huge boost for us and she was one of the attendees/presenters in Texas.  For those of us who couldn’t be there live, this will be a great way to take a glimpse at Kimball’s collection of Polaroids."

Wildfires

The Santa Anna winds in Southern California are a regular part of the Fall season. What is also becoming a regular occurrence is the wildfires that start for a variety of reasons and bring trauma to literally millions of people who are nearby or those of us connected to them. Just the Kincade fire alone threatening over 90,000 homes has 5245 personal assigned to it which at the time of this writing is 65% contained.

The same day that this fire started there was a gathering of Nikkenite's in San Antonio who started their own wildfire. Just like any assembling of people coming together to share and learn, these wellness consultants invested their time and resources into what Rick & Paige Murphy shared would be a life changing weekend. And so it was. Like a task force leader in front of his line crew, our global president Luis Kasuga shared his vision to more people who had not been impacted by the heart that continues to drive this company.

The greatest difference between a Santa Anna wind driven wildfire and the San Antonio Summit is that one is an emergency with no advance warning and yet both have much planning involved. The results of both will be new growth, one on natures timetable and the other on our timetable. What we do with the intel and the spirit behind the San Antonio experience will be up to us. And going forward with events like Salt Lake and the 45th anniversary celebration in New York City will definitely keep the wildfires burning."
