Life Is A Game - Zeyah Chua

Life Is A Game - Zeyah Chua

Today we have our very special guest, my daughter, Zeyah Chua"Life is like a game. Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose. Those are the only two options you can do, it’s either winning or losing.Being in the 3rd place is part of losing and winning. Losing because you lost the opportunity to be the best and winning because at least you made it after working so hardYou don’t need to be upset because of losing, you should be grateful." says Zeyah ChuaA failure is just an event."It may back you down but it gives you an encouragement to pull yourself back up."Her first live video titled “You should be the driver of your life”, that was also a part of Life is a Game because "you need to know when to turn the correct way so consequences won’t happen."

It doesn't have to be perfect.Alex and Will on their lecture said, " In perfect action beats perfect inaction."You just have to take a little bit of action, a little bit of risk. In that way, you can achieve that next dream that you're wanting to achieve.Get the Caregiver's Freedom Journal here.Enroll in our new course - MisUnderstanding Dementia here.

How to F. O. C. U. S

I was a speaker on the Tennessee Healthcare Association. And a lady asked me how do I do the things that I do and I told her, it's justF. O. C. U. S. - Finish One Course Until SuccessfulMost of the time we're like a squirrel looking left and right and we don't know what we're looking for. We just keep on getting that next Shining Object Syndrome.If you really want to be successful, learn to FOCUS- Finis One Course Until Successful and then find another thing to do.John Maxwell said on his podcast "Yes we need to have goals, but we also need a growth mindset."We always do this goal mindset and once we're done doing that goal we stop.I think we need what we need to do, according to John Maxwell, is to have a growth mindset.And that's what happens to us, whether you're a therapist or caregiver or nurse or medical rep at the Philippines back home, what I did before is I hit that goal and I stopped.When I pass the board exam 1999 for the Physical Therapy Board Exam, I stopped reading books. And that made me stagnant.But if you do a growth mindset, you're going to keep on growing, you're going to keep moving forward and being the best that you can be. Not only for yourself but also for your friends and family and for the people that surround you.Get the Caregiver's Freedom Journal here.Enroll in our new course - MisUnderstanding Dementia here.
 How do I change my loved ones? How do I change jobs? How do I?I learned this from my wife, “You cannot change somebody else until you change yourself first.”And that’s what she did! She wanted me to quit smoking. She wanted me to be a better person. And you know what my wife did, instead of changing me, she changed herself.You start with Y. O. U. R. S. E. L. F.Change YOU first!People can motivate you but your habit will keep you going. There’s this thing that says “Motivation can get you started, but habits keep you going.”People can motivate you but if you’re not doing it yourself and not creating a habit for yourself, it’s not going to do you good.Learn to become an OVERCOMER and OUTSTANDING PERSONHow do you become an overcomer?Basically, t’s pushing yourself to the next level. Believing and being outstanding in everything that you do.Learn how to be UNDERSTANDINGThat’s what my wife did. She kept on understanding me in order for me to be able to change. If she didn’t understand me, I won’t be able to change.READ, READ and READRead positive and uplifting books.There’s a reason why I don’t get a newspaper anymore because all I hear and see is negative news.And now I’m starting to read more inspirational books, obviously the BIBLE. At least a minimum of 10 pages of positive and uplifting books.In order to change yourself, you need to keep on reading. Because faith comes from reading and hearing and seeing.STOP BEING SELFISHWhen you’re selfish and just thinking about yourself, it’s just going to be you. You won’t change that person or you won’t change your job.ENERGY or ENTHUSIASMYou have to have that enthusiasm of not only changing that person but also changing yourself.LEARN HOW TO LOVELove yourself, love the people around you. In that way, you can be the best that you can be.FAITHYou have to have faith. Faith in that person, faith in yourself, and obviously, faith in GOD.Faith is the substance of things hoped for. The evidence of things not yet seen. You may not see or you may not feel that change in that person. But if you’re changing yourself, you will eventually see that change in that person. That’s what faith is!Get the Caregiver’s Freedom Journal here.Enroll in our new course – MisUnderstanding Dementia here.
Verbal and Non-Verbal Signs

Verbal and Non-Verbal Signs

2019-07-1900:05:47

 How Do You Communicate? What do your non-verbal signs convey?Most of the time, I go to a patient, I come in, I show my verbal and non-verbal signs and it really works!What are these verbal signs that we're talking about?V.E.R.B.A.LV - VOICEWhat's your voice? Are you raising your voice up? lowering down your voice? Do you have a big voice?You have to know what kind of voice are you showing to your patients. Is it a good sounding voice? or is it a positive voice? You need to learn how to do thatE - ENGAGINGAre you engaging with your patient? Are you engaging or connecting with that person?R- REACTIVEAre you being reactive? We don't want to be reactive, we want to be PRO-ACTIVE.In the  Philippines, when I was working as a Medical Representative, we have this conference and we called it PRO-ACT.Basically, we are being pro-active with the plans that we have in life. So, we want to be pro-active instead of reacting.When we are talking to a person and we don't agree with their opinions, we try to be reactive. We don't want to be like that, we want to be pro-active.B- BODY LANGUAGEAre you putting your hands on your hip? Is your browse raising? What kind of body language are you showing?A - ASKING QUESTIONSAre you being interested or interesting?Most of the time, when we're talking we want to be interesting all about ourselves. But, you want to be interested in that person.L - LEARN HOW TO LOVELove that person! You don't want to be lying, because who wants a lier? You want to be loving. You want to love that person!Learn how to love that person that you're talking to. Whether you're talking to a dementia patient, you're talking to an interviewer to look for another job, do these techniques.Verbal and Non-Verbal signs!Get the Caregiver's Freedom Journal here.Enroll in our new course - MisUnderstanding Dementia here.
  I attended a certification course called Certified Online Training Professional.One of the Speaker there said, “Tell me I Forget, Teach me I Remember, Involve me, I Understand” something like that.Same thing with our Dementia patient. And I just realized that, if you’re telling a patient or a person that has Dementia and you’re telling, you’re telling, you’re telling that, they’ll forget that.Teach them, they’ll remember it but if you involve them in the activity, involve them in the staff that you’re trying to do they’ll understand it. I know some patients can’t understand it because they have problems in Dementia, but in general, in life, this is what we need to do anyway.If you’re telling somebody a procedure, they’ll probably forget that. But if you teach them how to do it, what to do it, they’re probably going to remember it. When you involve them and let them do it on themselves they going to understand that. And that’s the purpose of this group, this page, wanting for you to understand Dementia, and that is why it’s called MisUnderstanding Dementia.And I want you to understand more, not only the dementia process, not only the dementia disease but understand yourself more.“Tell me I Forget, Teach me I Remember, Involve me, I Understand”!Get the Caregiver's Freedom Journal here.Enroll in our new course - MisUnderstanding Dementia here.
