Dear Nikken Friend,
Synergy is when the total effect is greater than the sum of effects taken individually. One plus one could equal five, or three plus 2 may equal 12… or even more! I believe the power of synergy is a huge reason for the enormous benefits that can be multiplied when incorporating all the healthy components of a Total Wellness Home. It’s not just PiMag living water + Naturest sleep + KenkoAir + Nikken Nutrition. Each additional serving of a wellness technology can create a multiplying effect!
Richard Eyre has some great things to say about Synergy:
When two people or things complement each other, or motivate each other in certain ways, or where people work together and brainstorm or stimulate and motivate each other, the combined result can be much greater than the aggregate of what each could do separately.
The word actually comes from the Greek synergos, meaning working together, and is defined in the dictionary as:
- A mutually advantageous conjunction where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
- A dynamic state in which combined action is favored over the sum of individual component actions.
Synchronicity, according to the dictionary, is “the coincidental occurrence of events and especially psychic events (as similar thoughts in widely separated persons or a mental image of an unexpected event before it happens) that seem related but are not explained by conventional mechanisms of causality.” These can be simple things, like someone calling you just at the moment when you were thinking of him.
When you add the spiritual connections, it becomes a way to talk about the amazing timing of God’s tender mercies in our lives and the connections between the thoughts and feelings of loved ones that can’t be explained in cause and effect terms. And when you link spiritual synchronicity with spiritual synergy, you get our new word, synergicity. This is about finding connections with others and finding opportunities in the unexpected timing with which things come into our lives.
Barbara Dillingham beautifully described it this way: ‘Life is not a path of coincidence, happenstance, and luck, but rather an unexplainable meticulously charted and choreographed course for one to touch the lives of others and make a difference in the world.’
Nikken allows each one of us to positively affect large numbers of people as we actively help to grow our Nikken Global Wellness Community!
