My Journey to my eighth trip to New York


This is one of the most difficult blogs I have ever written. Do you know why? Because I am sitting on the back sit of a car going almost sixty five miles an hour in the streets of New York. Every time the car hits a bump in the road, I just stop writing. So, bear with me if you find yourself reading it slowly, it's because it took me a long time to write....

Here I am again in New York for the eighth time in the last ten months. Isn't it crazy? Never in my wildest dreams as a young boy had I thought I would travel this much. Let's see. Since July 2005 I have traveled at least once every three months. I have been more than ten times to North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio, and once to Dallas and to Vegas. You can add to that a trip to Mali, France, Burundi and recently to Rwanda (how can I forget this one?).

This trip was very emotional for many reasons. I made sure I appreciated every bit of it, because I am now turning the page. No more excessive traveling. In fact, this is my last one (don't worry, my name is still Journeyman). Did I say my last one? I was wrong. I will be in Ottawa in two weeks, and that will be the last one.

Why such a sudden decision, you may ask? Only because I want to change my name and be called Family Guy. My recent change in marital status made me realize that I can no longer live the life I was living (now I have good enough reasons to stay home if you know what I mean). That is not the only reason though. Almost all my trips, I have been going to conferences to listen to great speakers, coaches and trainers. I even had one on one conversations with celebrities and world changers (no wonder I am one of them now lol). All of them have made such a huge impact on my life. Even though I have been living on the edge and made sacrifices for this long, I won't regret any moment of it. I really learned from the best.

I am now starting a new chapter of my life. All these years, I have learned a thing or two. I have applied some of them in my life and made things happen when there was no way they could happen. It's time for me to share them with the world. I am going to dedicate my life to be of service doing stuff I love to do (there is no higher purpose). I have started coaching a couple of business owners, and my intention is to continue to do so. My blog is now read all over the world (a shout out to my new friends in New Zealand), I can now produce my radio show from home and I am about to publish my first book. Very soon, I will be leading my own seminars. What else can I ask for? Of course I have my own challenges, but I embrace them as they come, cause what doesn't kill you makes you stronger as my friend Kanye West stated it in one of his songs.

I really believe we can create our own lives and live by design. I have seen enough to believe so. All that it takes is a leap of faith and trust that there is a Guy Upstairs watching us and guiding us whenever we ask. I heard a guy saying that in the vision there is provision. Just go out and live your dream even when you don't know how it is going to happen. There is somebody who knows and He will make sure that you get it if you really want it so badly and don't give up (have I been listening to Jimmy Cliff or what?)


Moral of the story? Do you want to travel a lot? Just watch Family Guy cartoon and listen to Jimmy Cliff and you will go to New York.

Always a pleasure

My Journey to a Press Conference

What a game 7 for the Raptors!! Kahwi shot was out of this world. I am still in shock.
But, let me talk about a game that happened a while back. Game 5.
As game 5 against the Philadelphia 76ers and our beloved Raptors ended with a huge victory from the local team, we headed down to the press conference location. The media people were lining up in front of the elevator and the length of the line was one of those I had never seen. We had to wait for the elevator to go down and back up at least three times before we could get in.
By the time we finally got in the elevator, the TV monitor inside the elevator was showing Serge Ibaka’ s press conference. Shoot, we were running late.
We finally got down, and as we were rushing to the conference room, I bumped into Toronto FC soccer superstar Jozy Altidore. He said hi to me and I said hi back. It was surreal. Then, in front of me, I saw this huge guy with tattoos all over his body. I didn’t know who he was, but he caught my attention. As it turn…

My Journey to the Plan

Our baby is now six months old. Time really flies. It has been a real joy to spend time with her and see her grow daily.
I have received a number of positive comments about my last blog. I am glad you liked it. Let go and let God is a principle that I am learning to embrace. I have read about it a number of times, and I thought I was doing it, but I don't think I had totally released control until recently. How did it happen? So many things happened at the same time that led me realize that I had to let it go. One of them is the experience of my good friend Emmanuel Lopez a.k.a Motivatorman.
About a year ago, I met Emmanuel just to catch up after my summer in Africa. Emmanuel and I have been friends since 2005, and ever since we made a tradition to meet regularly to talk about...life. As we were talking, he shared with me that he was going through one of the toughest moments of his life. From our previous conversations, I knew things were not easy for him, but he always kept a posit…

My Journey to my meeting with Bob Proctor

He is a hero of mine, I have studied his material for years, I had met him once and at that time he even signed one of the books he gave to me. But, spending three hours in an intimate setting, hearing him calling my name, him talking to me from a few feet away was just a dream come true.

Bob Proctor is simply a genius. He has been studying the laws of success for over fifty years, but he has a simple way of explaining things that I found myself saying “wow” all the time. I have listened to his audios, read his book and saw hundreds of his videos. It has come to the point where I can finish his sentences before he finishes them. But seeing him live telling his story is another thing.

Call me crazy, but I just believe that I will end up working with him. I don't know how or when this is going to happen, but I know I will. It is with the same belief that I know I will one day meet Michael Jordan and Nelson Mandela (being with Pathe'O few weeks ago made me feel I am not that far…
