About Me

I am Michael.

A dreamer but one who dares to work and live his dreams. Not the very tech-savvy kind but I am learning something new almost every day.

As for my career, I had served in capacities ranging from sales to marketing, training and coaching, senior management to general management. I had even served as a Sales & Marketing Manager in the International Sales Division of a power electronics organisation based in The Netherlands.     

From hindsight, the experience I gained working with people of different cultures had been truly amazing, pleasurable and privileged. I love music particularly contemporary jazz and enjoys eating; be it Western, Chinese, Japanese or Other dishes.     

Through “Have A Dream,” I wish to relate with you my hard knocks in life. However, please note, I am neither sharing my insights and my past experience to extract sympathy or mentioning my accomplishments for the purpose of feeding my ego. I firmly believe at the end of the day; only you can make the changes that lead to fulfillment. You see, the drive has to come from within you. 

Two other things that I cannot live without each day, are a glass of fresh, chilled lemon juice and my favorite Chinese ‘pu-erh’ (Camellia sinensis) tea.

Lastly, it’s great to have you visiting this blog, “Have A Dream,” If we have related during your brief stop at “Have A Dream,” I would certainly say; “Yes.” We have through my posts related. And may have possibly met earlier at my earlier blog, “Straight Talking.com” – which at this point in time I have taken private.

I am looking forward to welcoming you back to “Have A Dream” in the the not too distant future and once again, “Thank You” for your valued visit.

Michael.

    Hi Michael, appreciate your ‘like’ on my recent post re the good news. I can relate fully with your concept that many people have far more potential to live abundant lives than most of us do. We waste so much time being ‘entertained’ that we leave so little time for giving.

    Thank you for visiting and liking my blog. You sound like an interesting fellow.

  178. Hi Michael – thanks for your visit a while back. I remembered being moved by your ‘recipes’ and would like to share this, which I found in a pile of papers today…thanks for all you are and do. H xxx

    A recipe for a peaceful, meaningful and joy-filled life

    Take a room of silence
    And time alone
    Slotted in between 8 and 10
    Mix in meals full of rich conversation
    Sprinkled with laughter and tears
    Topped with a goodbye hug
    And a see you again soon

    Music and singing by the treefull
    Listen to the birds
    And answer their call
    Singing for love, for pain, for joy
    Letting your heart
    Set the tempo and tone

    Add a houseful of family
    Dearly beloved
    Seen only rarely
    But sharing
    Those parts of you
    Others will just never know…

    Fill your busyness with action
    That contributes love
    To the whole
    Which of course includes you

    For in service
    joy, meaning and peace
    are found in abundance
    Spilling their richness
    In delicious waves
    That hug our planet in healing

    Hold it all with acceptance
    In the moment of now
    And celebrate each magic miracle…WOW!

  179. Michael
    I’ve nominated you for the Daisy Award. I’ve received this from Chatting with Spirit and wanted to pass it on to you as I think your posts are always sunny and uplifting, like a daisy. The rules as I’ve been told are to thank the person who nominated you, list 7 things that are unusual about you and to nominate any other bloggers you feel are deserving. I haven’t yet figured out how to copy the award px from Chatting with Spirit, so you may want to go to her site to get the picture, if you would like to add it to your blog. Thanks so much for making a positive difference in the world. Namaste.

  180. Michael, It is always a pleasure to be involved in your Perfect Imagined Life! I am nominating you for “Lovely Blogger Award” http://emotionalmommie.wordpress.com/2012/09/07/someone-thought-of-me-my-first-award/
