This is Dr. Mike Chua, your physical therapist and certified dementia practitioner, and aside from me being your alternative career coach, I am the husband of Puppen Chua. I'm taking my wife, it's our anniversary today. I bought her flowers last night, bought her a perfume, and she said she’d go to just return it. But anyway, I just wanted to of course, obviously greet my wife, who is my wife for almost 20 years now.
I put there above “How do you become an awesome wife?”, “How do you become a better wife to your husband?” Follow the word PUPPEN; P-U-P-P-E-N. So, how do you become an awesome and a wonderful wife?
First, you need to be letter P, you have to be Passionate. You got to be passionate about your relationship. You have to be passionate about your love to your husband. My wife, she's very passionate. When I come home, she would sometimes surprise me and she’s very passionate about our love.
The next letter, letter U, you have to be Understanding. She’s the most understanding person in the world, whatever I want to do, she would understand and support me. If you want to be an awesome and supportive wife, you got to be understanding. You got to learn how to understand your husband. You got to support him in whatever he does, well, of course, the positive things that he does, right?
Letter P, you got to be Positive. How can husband go home, he’s stressed out in his job, stressed out in his business, stressed out in his own life, and he’ll come home with a negative wife, negative nagging wife? Guess what, He doesn’t want to go home. He wants to come home to a positive, uplifting wife, who will bring out the best in him.
Next letter P, another letter P. You got to be Productive. If you’re a wife, obviously you are the best. You’re a wife and a mother, you’re the most productive person in the world. My wife, imagine that, she runs her business. She has her own business. It’s a full time gig and she’s a mother of three. And a full time husband to me, imagine that, handling Mike Chua, right? It's going to be really, really hard.
Next letter E, you got to have the Energy. My wife, she has the best energy in the world. She’s the first person to wake up and the last person to sleep. This morning, I think she woke up around 5:30 and I already slept by around 10:00. And in 11:00, she’s still awake. You got to have the energy. How do you get the energy? You have to exercise. She’s exercising all the time.
Last but not least, letter N. If you want to be an awesome mother, awesome wife, you have to learn how to say No to the things today, in order for you to be able to say yes to the things to tomorrow.
So again, what are the best ways to be awesome as a wife? First, you got to be Passionate. Next letter is you got to be Understanding. Next letter P is Positive. Next letter P is Productive. Next letter E is Energy. You got to have energy. And last but not least you have to say no. My wife said no to a lot of stuff before, because she wanted to be with me and bring up the best in me.
All right, have a great day. Be Awesome, be great, be excellent. And always remember, the bigger challenge, the bigger the victory.
And to my wife, she’s watching or listening, Happy Anniversary. I love you very much.
