If your dreams don’t inspire you and motivate you, then you need more powerful dreams. -Ranal Currie

This is Dr. Mike Chua, your physical therapist and certified dementia practitioner. And yes, I am your alternative career coach. Well anyway, I wanted to go live and talk about this awesome quote that I saw today from Ranal Curie, it says there, “If your dreams don’t inspire you and motivate you, then you need more powerful dreams.”  

 So, how do you achieve your dream? How do you how do you get that dream? Basically, you wake up. If you are just dreaming and dreaming, you have to wake up. So, how do you wake up? Well, first of all, you open up your eyes. I broke down the ‘WAKE UP’ word; W-A-K-E-U-P. So, how do you wake up?  

 First is letter W, Winner, you have to have a Winning mentality. If your dream is not a winning mentality, guess what? You’re not going to achieve that dream, right? 

 Letter A, you got to take Action. I always preach this. You’ll learn how to take action, because if you are just analyzing and waiting for the next thing to come in, it’s not going to do you good 

 Next letter K, letter K is the Key to success. You have to find that key, in order for you to be able to go in through that door. You have to find the key. You have to learn how to put that key in and turn it in. What’s that key? The keys to wake up; keep waking up, in order for you to be able to achieve that dream.  

 Next letter E, you’ll learn how to Encourage and Empower yourself. You can get all the motivation in the world, you can get all the books in the world, but if you don’t actually encourage yourself to do it yourself, it’s not going to do you good. I had to encourage myself today to go live, I didn't want to but I had to take action and encourage myself, Hey, Michael, I got to go out, I got to do this. And that way, I could be the best that I can be. You got to learn how to encourage yourself.  

 Letter U, you have to be Uplifting. How can you be a better person? How can you achieve your dreams? How could people believe in your dreams, if you yourself is not having uplifting behavior, uplifting attitude 

 Last but not the least, letter P. You need to be Powerful. How can you be a good leader? How can you be a better person if you yourself is not powerful? I’m not talking about being strong and physically. I’m talking about being powerful in your mind, powerful in your heart, power in your spirit.  

 So again, how do you achieve your dreams by waking up, by working up? By waking up; W-A-K-E-U-P, alright? W is Winner, you have to have a winning attitude. Letter A, got to take Action. Letter K, the Key to success. Letter E, Empower and Encourage. Letter U, Uplifting. And letter P, you need to be Powerful.  

 All right, have a great day. Be Awesome, be great, be excellent.
