My Journey to a Haircut.

Hello there.
It's been a while since I posted my blog on Monday. It feels really good. I have to admit that the inspiration is not there all the time. Sometimes I have to wait until I have an
idea of what I am going to write about.

This week, the idea came to me just yesterday when I was having my haircut.

You see, it has been almost seven years that I cut my hair myself. Every two weeks, all I have to do is getting my machine, and ten minutes later I am better looking (at least that is what the survey says lol).

So, here I was yesterday evening, in front of my mirror, ready to do a job that I have been doing for almost a decade now. Can you guess what happened? Two minutes into mjob, the machine died. Are you kidding me!! There was nothing I could do. My hair looked exactly like that bush we always see on TV while watching people on Safari in Kenya. The only thing missing was those wild animals lol.

I went in the living room to show my wife my new haircut and she exploded with laughter. I think that I have just invented a new hair fashion. Good thing that the paparazzi were not around, you would have waken up with my picture on the front page of your favourite newspaper.

Do you know the funny thing? All the barbershops were closed today. Yes it was a day off here in Ontario. I just spent the last twenty four hours with my new haircut. I am lucky we did nopt have any visitor today. That would have been so funny. The only thing I missed was my morning visit to the gym. I did not want to scare people with my new hair fashion. I can't wait to see the face of the guy who is going to cut my hair tomorrow. He will certainly have some questions to ask me

Life is full of surprises. Stuff happen. We can plan all we want, but sometimes we can be caught by surprise. We have to know how to deal with those things. I guess the solution could be to learn to laugh at ourselves when the unexpected happens.

Moral of the story? Do you want to know how to deal with life's surprises? Just get a new haircut and you will stay home for twenty four hours.

Always a pleasure,
Patrick

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…
