|Chancellor of Nikken University Jeff Isom|
An open line for discussion is long overdue. Not just any discussion though! As our new Chancellor of Nikken University Jeff Isom encouraged us in 2019, setting goals (not Resolutions) is something that separates those who seem to always live lives a little better than others. Let’s have a lively discussion about using the 5 Pillars as a guideline or checklist for maximum balance as well as achieving things that we thought might be way out of reach. After all, if words create our future, we can speak goals into reality when we share them with others.

‘Dreaming about a thing in order to do it properly is right; but dreaming about it when we should be doing it is wrong.’ - Oswald Chambers
Now is the time that millions of people have given up on their dreams. No, not the big dreams of having a better life or improving their situation, but the daily dreams of conquering those little things that set them back. They set resolutions a couple weeks ago with full intentions of doing something different this year to see those changes implemented, but they gave up because of a variety of reasons.
Here’s just one example. Excess weight seems like such a redundant topic as the gyms are filled and every diet company has ramped up their ad campaigns. But have we ever considered the fact that if 70% of Americans are carrying extra weight, thats the majority of us who are packing around extra toxins and living lives a bit less than we should be. What would it be like to be in the same body we occupied back in high school or college? Do we dream about this?
Nikken, it’s core philosophy of the 5 Pillars of Health and these amazing products can actually provide the tools people need to implement our dreams. We don’t have to just dream about them, but we can become dream doers by using the wellness home products and encouraging others to do the same. And when we seek out small achievable goals in each of the 5 Pillars, we’ll be empowered to dream even bigger goals.
I truly believe the Kenko Ground is not only a revolutionary product, but a concept that will deeply impact us for decades to come. Upon it’s introduction in Toronto a few months ago, people kept referring to a ‘return to our roots’ theme. When we take time daily to sit with our bare feet on this wonderful piece of cloth, we literally are allowing inflammation to be released from our bodies. When toxins are pulled from the cells, how much better can the brain do it’s job of dreaming big dreams. And not just dreaming them, but actually dreaming up the plans of implementation. This is crucial as the times change around us, because we can be the people that have already adapted to live better lives just by spending a few minutes a day getting grounded AND becoming dream doers!
