My Journey to a Breakfast

I remember the last time I was in New York, a friend of mine came into my hotel room with lots of food. I thought it was just for her, but she brought some for me too (how could I refuse). I asked her why she had brought food me, to which she replied: “I read you blog. I know that when it comes to food, you are always open to opportunities”. Somebody is reading my blog....

I shared the story with our guests at our seminar last Saturday and I told them that it was my time to give back. I offered to pay for breakfast for those who were interested in learning more about what we do at Goal Achievers. I had 7 hungry (lol) people at our first breakfast and it looks like I will be doing it every week-end (are you interested?). It was awesome (I mean the food lol). I will get back to the breakfast story in a second. They are showing Derrick Rose and the Bulls on TV. What an impressive win over Lebron and company!

So where was I? Oh yes. The breakfast thing. It was magic. People who thought that their goals were out of reach went home so excited and with an action plan in hand. Some of them had some audaciously big goals. My friend Motivatorman wants to be on Oprah's last show on May 25 (a longtime dream of his). To tell you the truth, I think he is close to his goal. Check out his blog here:http://bit.ly/kl5hOL

I have attended lots of seminars, I have read many books, I have taken lots of courses, but never had I experienced what I am experiencing now with our Mastermind group. It's crazy! Things are happening so quickly that our biggest challenge is to keep up with everything that is going on (how about co-authoring a book with the Canadian bestseller author, in less than a week! Are you kidding me!)

Jim Pagiamtzis, one of the members of our team, is a published author, speaker and entrepreneur . He is the founder of Get Connected Make Wealth Happen! It has been a privilege to share my life journey with this guy! I call him Mr. Connector because that is exactly what he does. Do you need anything? He can connect you with the right person in a few seconds. Jim is so committed that he doesn't mind picking me up at 5.45 AM so that we can ride together to a workshop sponsored by Goal Achievers. Wow!!

Let me take a short break here. I need to call Kigali...

Okay, am back; but now I can't recall where I was in my story. Sorry guys. I will have to write another one next week.

Have you seen the movie “The Ultimate gift”? Not yet? What do you mean? I have mentioned this movie many times in my blogs. Please take action and watch it (so that I can get my commission from the producer lol). Anyways, a guy in the movie was asked to talk about his dream. After thinking about it for a while, he responded: “I don't know what my dream is, but I can certainly help others achieve theirs”. Wow!

I am experiencing the same thing!


Moral of the story? Do you want to have your dream come true? Just read my blogs and you will offer me free food.

Always a pleasure

My Journey with Fidèle

It has been quite a few busy weeks that involved a round trip to Ottawa on Saturday and preaching during a Sunday church service (yes, I was surprised too when I was asked to do it). All this time I was thinking about what I would be writing about on this week’s blog. I had a vague idea, but I did not know how to formulate it.
That was until I received a message on Facebook from a friend asking me to speak at an upcoming event in January. The topic of my presentation would be “The Moment that Defined Your Life”. The person who sent me the invitation did not know that I had been thinking about the same topic days prior to her message.
It all started when I was at a Toronto Raptors game. I have been reporting on the games for almost two months now, but I am still in awe every time I am at the arena. I can’t believe this is happening to me. I have been in rooms with childhood idols, biggest stars of the game, coaches, reporters, you name it. And every time I am saying “wow”. The other day,…

My Journey with a man of faith

Many years ago, I heard a businessman say that if you don’t have a dream, be around dreamers. Now, I am going to add to his statement and say that if you don’t have faith, be around people of faith.
I met this gentleman over sixteen years ago when I first came to Canada. After a few months, we became roommates. It was very fun evenings among friends hearing and telling funny jokes. We didn’t know what we would become later, but I knew this guy was going somewhere. He was a devoted Christian man, playing music in two different churches. He had a picture in his room with a huge crowd on it and I knew he was meant to impact people’s lives. Little did I know I would be, many years later among the people who would be impacted by his life.
We went our separate ways but kept in touch. He later became a Pastor (and I was not surprised at all by that), and I attended his church a few times.
In 2013, I was going through one of the toughest moments of my life and I needed help. I didn’t know wh…

My Journey with the Orange Ball

I have to say that the feedback I received from last week's blog was overwhelming. It made me realize how selfish I was for not sharing my up and down journey. Many of you readers have reached out to share your journeys with me. I was so blessed by each of you and the part of your life journey you shared with me.  I have learned that whatever I am going through, somebody else is going through worse. That helps me put things into perceptive.
    Thank you.
Last Saturday I got to watch the rerun of the Basketball Hall of Fame Ceremonies. It was an amazing show. All the inductees shared their stories; some of them were very emotional while others were simply funny.
It is quite an honour to be chosen to be in a select group of elite players, coaches, executives and many others who have impacted the game in many ways.
As there is little chance for me to be a Basketball hall of famer (the chances are almost zero, but I am keeping an open mind), I am glad I have a platform on which I can sha…
