My Journey With Skylar

This is a first. I am writing my blog from a phone. I love technology.
However, I am typing so slowly it is so funny to see. I guess that is why you are reading it on Tuesday instead of Monday.

It's been a few weeks that I have my new phone and I am enjoying every bit of it. There is a learning curve of course but so far so good. I love watching my now favourite show "The Shark Tank". My wife said to me that I have become addicted to the show and I think that she is right.

Speaking of my wife, she has now started college and she is really having fun. I haven't seen her this serious and focused and determined. And the results are showing. I am really proud of her.

With my wife going to school Monday to Friday, I have to rearrange my schedule accordingly (waking up at five in the morning is now a piece of cake). I am spending most of my day time with our daughter Skylar and I am having a blast.

I have learned so much about our daughter because of the time we spend together it's not even funny. It has come to a point when my wife is so amazed how I can put her to sleep in a heartbeat while in the past it was so hard to do. I know what makes her laugh, the kind of music she likes and the food she likes to eat and when (unlike her father who can eat anything anytime).

Through the whole process, I learned that making spending quality time with our loved ones as our priority can be a great thing. Most of the time we are so busy trying to make a living that we take our relationships for granted.

I believe that many relationships can be healed just by simply spending time together.

Moral of the story? Do you want to spend quality time with your loved ones? Just buy a new phone and you will be getting my blog quicker.

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…
