Be the best you can be!

Be the best

Personal development is the process of understanding ourselves so that we can strive to reach our full potential and become the best we can be.

Personal development affects every aspect of our lives. When we grow and develop as individuals we feel a sense of achievement, satisfaction and fulfilment. Becoming our best selves, being aware of the opportunities and possibilities, being more motivated and positive in our outlook affects not only ourselves, but also the ones close to us. Being focused on our own personal development is not selfish. On the contrary, it opens us up to becoming more open-minded and observant of the needs of others. Working on ourselves to become a better person benefits those around us.

Here are a few tips on what you can do to improve your life:

1. Make small choices for the better. Make positive choices and decisions that will lead you to a more fulfilling life.

2. Do something for yourself. Do something that you love, just for yourself.

3. Do something for someone else. The sense of satisfaction you get from helping others is priceless.

4. Define your own success. What is most important to you? What do you want to change? What do you want to learn?

5. Make sure your work and personal life are balanced.

6. Spend your time on the things that matter the most to you.

7. Practice Self Care.

8. Set goals for what you want to achieve. Set goals for your life that motivate and inspire you. Set goals that are specific and attainable.

9. Make a Life Cycle Plan.

Personal development gives you the opportunity to get clarity over your own vision for your life. Learning new skills and improving yourself drives motivation and increases your confidence. When you are self-aware and know yourself your social relations will also improve.

At Nikken we believe in the potential of every individual and ever since our company was founded 44 years ago in Japan, we have put focus on personal development with our training called Humans Being More Silver Training (HBMST). We believe that everyone can become their best self and that we as a community have a responsibility to help others live more fulfilled lives. Our philosophy is based on living a life in balance in what we call the 5 pillars of Health. With focus on having balance in these five areas of your life; Mind, Body, Family, Society and Finances, our HBMST training has helped thousands of people achieving a better life for themselves.

If you are interested in attending one of our trainings, contact your Nikken Consultant or contact Nikken at UKsupport@nikken.co.uk.

Reaching Diamond with Persistence and Faith…

uk blog banner

In November of 2018, Dr. John and Annette Jackson became the newest Diamond Consultants. They have been with Nikken for “15 short years” and tell the story of their Nikken journey with enthusiasm and unwavering faith.

“Since day one the goal was to reach Diamond. Why? We wanted to prove that anyone can be successful with Nikken. We were so grateful to Nikken for transforming our lives with the Active Wellness lifestyle that our focus was laser-sharp on sharing the products and opportunity. We worked with the conviction that failure was absolutely never an option.

When strong leaders started appearing on our team, we could see their actions and goals. We then knew that reaching Diamond was only a matter of time. We increased our activities and rode the momentum. We chose November as the month to advance to Diamond and made many more contacts to ensure we would meet the requirements. By the end of the month, we celebrated with three new Platinum Consultants, one Gold Consultant and five new Silver Consultants. It was truly collaborative teamwork.”

For the Jacksons, consistency and persistence throughout the years proved to be key in their leadership quest for Diamond. Their daily activities have largely remained the same and include making phone calls, following up with contacts, and constantly looking for prospects while being prepared to share Nikken anywhere.

“We changed our business-building methods about three years ago when Nikken shifted the emphasis to retailing. We love this approach because we believe it is beneficial for Nikken globally. We remain in constant communication with our team members in both North and Latin America by providing pertinent information and counseling, answering questions, conducting ABCs and always being available.”

Steadfast in their business-building approach, the Jacksons have now set their goals even higher. “We will continue with our same routine. We have never swayed in our passion and belief in Nikken products, our company and the necessity of sharing. With effort and prayer, we intend to reach the rank of Royal Diamond much faster than it took us to become Diamond Consultants!”

Congratulations to Dr. John and Annette Jackson from all of us at Nikken!

New Year… Healthier You

girl jumping in snow

Welcome to 2019!… Have you made any New Year Resolutions?  One of the most popular resolutions is to make a commitment to improve overall health – crucial to an Active Wellness lifestyle. For each of us, that commitment is personal; however, the basics include eating healthy foods and moving more often. Resolutions need to be do-able and realistic in order for us to stick them.

Here are 10 practical ways to help you make 2019 a healthier year:

1. Eat more citrus. An article in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that people who eat foods high in vitamin C are more successful at staving off the effects of premature aging of the skin.

2. Eat more vegetables. They contain lots of fiber, vitamins and minerals and are low in calories. They’re the key to maintaining health and a comfortable weight.

3. Cut down on sugar intake and don’t use artificial sweeteners.

4. Expand your palate. Things like kale, bitter melon and pomegranate may be acquired tastes but if you like them, you’re adding to your arsenal of healthy foods – all of which helps in weight management.

5. Cook more at home. It is not only healthier because you can choose exactly which ingredients to use but also helps save money.

6. Set yourself a goal to exercise daily, as consistency is key. To challenge yourself, each week increase the intensity of whatever you choose to do, a little bit at a time.

7. Spend less time in front of the screen (mobile phones, tablets, TV, etc.) and more time making actual contact with living beings. For example, have tea with friends, take an exercise class, walk the dog, etc.

8. Wear shoes that are supportive and comfortable. When feet are uncomfortable, the whole body suffers. Feet carry us where we need to go, so be kind to them and we have a better chance that they’ll work throughout our lives. Try the Kenko mSteps® featuring energizing massage nodes on insoles that offer extraordinary comfort and the refreshing sensation of a foot massage.

9. Be helpful. Whether we volunteer our time or donate to worthy causes, helping others is a win-win. We end up with a better self-image, which in turn creates an overall sense of wellbeing.

10. Take the stairs wherever you can. That doesn’t mean climbing a high-rise, but three or four stories is a good way to add to a short walk in a building. During inclement weather, consciously using the stairs is a great way to do a mini-workout.

New Year Message for 2019 from the CEO

Mr Fulle's NY Blog Banner

As I reflect on our 43rd year, there was much to be thankful for in the Nikken Family. Worldwide, last year thousands of people embraced the Nikken concept of Active Wellness. Living a Life in Balance by creating a Wellness Home defines our purpose or mission to humanity.

For the new year, Nikken will have much to offer to leverage our mission.

First, regarding personnel, I am very excited to announce new Nikken Corporate Executive and Sales Teams.

  • Luis Kasuga has accepted the position of President of Nikken Global. In this role, he will take the lead in developing and executing the Nikken sales and marketing strategy. I am confident he will have a significant impact on your business.
  • The new Managing Director for Latin America is Gustavo Gomez. Recently he celebrated his 15thanniversary with Nikken and is well known to everyone. Given his prior role as Sales Director for Latin America, this new position is a natural transition for Gustavo. His insights into network marketing have had a significant impact on aligning Company and Field Leaders’ goals.
  • Jeff Isom in his new role will be VP of Training. In this position, he will focus on providing global training for Nikken. Returning to his roots, Jeff will travel extensively to bring you Human Beings More Silver Training (HBMST), a unique approach to self-development and network marketing training.
  • Jennifer Figueroa will assume the responsibilities for Latin American sales. Jennifer possesses excellent people skills with a mind for business—a rare combination. In her prior role as General Manager for Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador, she was instrumental in helping to create the tremendous success our Consultants have been enjoying there.
  • North America once again has a National Sales Director: Ruben Yescas. He has more than 20 years of business experience, including 10 years in network marketing. His goal has always been to help consultants grow a profitable business.
  • Marisa Gonzalez will be returning to the Sales Dept. She has been with Nikken for 18 years, and during this time she has built a stellar reputation for providing service to the field.

In other matters, in April, Nikken will commemorate 30 years in the USA.  It has been and continues to be a most rewarding experience. There is no substitute for Humans Being More.

By the beginning of the 2nd quarter, North America will have a new shopping cart. It will be user friendly, sleek and hip!  This shopping cart is just one example of our renewed commitment to our e-commerce platform. Refinements and new functionality will be added to our web presence as needs are identified.

There will be an increased emphasis on digital marketing as a medium to increase awareness of the Nikken Brand and what it represents.

Exciting new products will be launched in 2019. Europe and Latin America will experience the phenomenal benefits of the Kenko Ground, which was previewed atthe Toronto Summit this past October. The testimonials we have read have truly been incredible.

Finally, and most importantly, I want to thank you for being part of the Nikken Family, and I want to wish all of you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

Kurt H. Fulle
CEO and Chairman

The Path to Success…

Nikken is about more than innovative products – it also has a great Income Opportunity1. Income can be earned in a number of ways; selling to customers, getting new business partners on board who develop their own Nikken business, and using the Nikken Incentive programmes to maximise income potential. 

We’d like to congratulate Chantal Martin, one of our Independent Nikken Consultants in France.  She has built her Nikken business over the past few months, achieving Silver rank in August and Gold in September AND won the High 5 Incentive. We asked Chantal what her favourite products are and how she built her business and achieved her rank advancements. This is her story: 

“Hello, I am Chantal Martin, 68, a retired shopkeeper from Vichy, France. I became an Independent Nikken Consultant in January 2018, after a very positive experience while testing the Nikken Sleep System.

I was very pleased with how I felt after using the Sleep System and wanted to purchase one for myself, as well as try more Nikken products, so I purchased the complete Sleep System and PiMag Water Fountain. I also use the Jade GreenZymes®, KENZEN Super Ciaga®, KVB® Natural Food Mix and the TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare. I use these products every day – they are now my essentials! 

I became very aware that I was actually responsible for my own health by choice – and not by chance. I attended workshops and discovered how I could share ways of living an active wellness lifestyle with others too.  

I introduced Nikken to people who wanted an additional income, with minimal investment, and who wanted to be part of a Team. Our Team currently consists of: two Consultants – who reached Executive rank in two months and won the Power Start Incentive. Their small initial investment has now been returned to them in products. And a Consultant – who has reached Silver rank in just two months and already, has his own team of 3 people. 

We are aiming to achieve the PARAGON prize by the end of December. We’ve achieved what we have so far with help and support from Marie and Jean Marie and their participation in our three business presentations.

I am now Gold rank. One of my beliefs is in helping others. Nothing we do is ever a waste of our time, we cannot help everyone, but we will be able to help someone. Nobody has ever become poor by giving. With hard work, perseverance and courage, we can get there. The only way to fail is to give up before reaching the goal. Be grateful for each difficulty you encounter – it could be the gift which will help you grow. The difference between a successful person and others is not lack of strength, nor lack of knowledge – but rather a lack of willpower.

Thank you and GO! GO!”

Sharing the method for success…

Paragons Retail, Sponsor and Duplicate

A “Paragon” is defined as a model of excellence or perfection. The most successful Nikken Consultants live up to being paragons. To help Nikken Consultants advance and increase earnings, the Paragon Award was developed to motivate and reward Consultants who sponsor new people and retail products, the two tried and true ways to advance in ranking and earn more income. Historically, the more effort Consultants exert, the faster they earn and the higher they progress in rank.

The Paragon Award is designed to help Nikken Consultants, at the Silver and lower ranks, advance to Gold. However, a Consultant at any level can achieve the Paragon Award by meeting the qualifications. To qualify, a Consultant needs to develop three or more new frontline Silver (or above) Consultants within a period of three consecutive months. In addition, awardees need to achieve a minimum of 18,000 Personal Group Point Volume. The prize is £600 in cash.

Platinum Consultant Leo LeMay, of the province of Quebec in Canada, achieved the Paragon Award earlier this year – and has plans to go for it yet again!

For anyone taking on this challenge, Leo gives some personal advice on how to succeed. He says, “I decided not just to try for the Paragon Award but to truly commit to attaining it. I believe in focusing on the decision to succeed and backing it up by taking consistent action every single day.

Taking action means contacting new prospects, doing the ABC presentations* and coaching people by phone when possible. I committed to making five to seven new contacts each week as well as doing at least one and sometimes two or three presentations each week. These presentations were either an ABC* or a personal one-on-one meeting. By consistently doing these things, I was able to increase volume to meet the qualifications. I also did a lot of coaching by phone.

To achieve the sponsorship requirements, I asked each of my first-level Consultants, who were not yet at the rank of Silver, whether they were ready to go for Silver. Réal Houle was the one who was committed, and I continued sponsoring to find two more. Whenever I sponsor new Consultants, I ask them if they are willing to commit to working towards Silver in three months or less. I also ask if they’ll commit to going for the Entrepreneurs Club at the same time. I’m happy to say that after all our hard work, my new frontline people are now independent and know how to retail and sponsor their own new Consultants.”

Congratulations to Leo LeMay for sharing Active Wellness and being a Nikken Paragon!
