My Journey with a Life Changer

They say that everything happens for a reason. I totally agree. But it is not that easy to see when things are happening to you that you cannot understand. It is only after the fact, looking back that we can connect the dots. Then, we can understand that all the things happened for a reason.

If you really think about it, life is a mystery. I can even say that life is a miracle. We can predict all we want but nobody really knows what tomorrow holds (all of a sudden I am a philosopher...)

Never in my dreams have I thought that my life would be like this, until I met this precious friend. This person changed my life forever. After many attempts to have a friend like this, I finally gave up. You see, I had a checklist to follow, if I met any friend who did not meet these requirements, either there was not a chance to be with the person, or I will do my best to make them change (try that one..)

As I said, I finally gave up. It was too hard for me. I had to let go and focus on the things I could control. It did not take long, in fact it took only twelve days to finally meet my friend, whom I now call my best friend. We met in a very unusual way, but I did not really care. I finally met what I was looking for.

In a matter of days, my life changed forever, No more extensive traveling, no more eating stuff uncontrollably (very hard one as you know that in terms of food I am always open to opportunities), no more staying out longer than required (that was an easy one for me). I was then a very disciplined man, just because I met my now best friend. Who would not want a friend like that?

Most of all, since I met this person, I feel that my life has now meaning. I have someone to take care of, someone who cares about me in a way that I was not used to (for a very long time), and someone who tells me that all will be fine no matter what. Someone who loves me unconditionally

As you have guessed, I am talking about....my wife. Words cannot express how I am so thankful to have her in my life. I always tell her, and I mean it, that she is an answer to my prayers. But never, in my whole imagination would have thought it would be like this. All I had to to was to pray and let go on who, how, when this person would come in my life. It took only twelve days after my prayer, and life was never the same.

My prayer for you is to find someone who can change your life for the good, and if you have that special person, cherish him/her, cause life is too short not to appreciate every moment of it.

Moral of the story? Do you want to get married to a special person? Just create a check list of how the person should be and give all that up.

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…
